Majestic luxury lakeside villas, picture perfect villages, pretty waterfalls and opulent hotels, this has been a retreat for the artistic and discerning since Roman times. Formed at the end of the last ice age, the Italian Lakes showcases Italian villas at their elegant, refined best mixed with an enduring, beguiling beauty.
Long balmy evenings in lakeside restaurants and days spent sailing the shores on a luxurious wooden boat: there’s nothing quite like the glamour of a vacation in the Italian Lakes.
Visit hot sulphur springs and Roman Ruins in seductive Sirmione, Belle Époque spas and decadent hotels dripping in glamour in Lake Como and sleepy fishing villages surrounded by wild natural beauty in Lake Maggiore. Enjoy a lakeside fresh fish lunch or visit quaint towns. Cycle around the lakes, trek up the mountainside, try windsurfing or challenge your friends at some speed boat racing. Or just enjoy the fresh mountain air, the still waters, 360 degree views and the sheer gracefulness and beauty of all that surrounds.
