Lake Garda villas Holiday rentals - villas & holiday homes to rent on Lake Garda

Lake Garda is Italy's largest lake and is just over 51km long. Surrounded by rolling hills in the south and high peaks in the north, Lake Garda looks more like a Norwegian fjord.

During the summer, the villages around the lake are full of tourists from all over the world who come to relax, enjoy the surroundings and water sports such as sailing and windsurfing or simply chilling out at one of the many beaches.

Sporting activities around Lake Garda

  • Cliff climbing and vie ferrata
  • Windsurfing and sailing
  • Biking
  • Treking
  • Golf
  • Skiing and snowboarding on Monte Baldo above Malcesine

During the winter, the snow starts to fall on the northern peaks surrounding the lake which makes the impressive scenery even more spectacular. Temperatures around the lake get quite chilly but you'll find that many of the villas are equipped with central heating and open log fires. Hiking and mountain biking are still very popular right through the winter season.
