Get ready to spend an unforgettable holiday at the lake, dedicated to wellness and fun!
A holiday at the lake is an excellent alternative to a stay by the sea or in the mountains and a great opportunity to get away from it all and relax with your family or friends. The Italian lakes are numerous, especially concentrated in the Alpine region and in the foothills of the Alps, surrounded by landscapes of great scenic interest and nature.
Holiday on the alpine lakes
Find a house among the thousands of offers published in CaseVacanza, a bed and breakfast, a farmhouse or a cottage for your holiday on Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy. Or Lake Como, which is the deepest lake in our country. Other spectacular and very famous destinations for a holiday or a weekend out of town are Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta or Lake Iseo, which houses the largest lake island in Italy, as well as the highest in Europe.
Lake Maggiore is the guardian of highly evocative landscapes, as well as some of the most famous lake resorts, reached every year by the inhabitants of Piedmont and Lombardy and foreign tourism. Arona, Stresa, Verbania and the small villages that overlook its shores are a unique attraction for those seeking peace and healthy air of the lake. Right next to the coast on which Stresa overlooks, there are the beautiful Borromean Islands, including the most famous, Isola Bella, which is a unique attraction throughout the Italian lake landscape. Its gardens, its history and the architecture of the palace are a spectacle for the eyes, to which is added the charm of the lake background behind.
Lake Orta is probably a more comfortable solution, considering the smaller size of its shores and a less important tourist reputation, although it remains a pleasant destination for a weekend at the lake. A bit like Lake Iseo, a bit secondary to the famous neighbors of Garda, Como and Maggiore, but still a destination much appreciated for its characteristic landscapes.
Lake holidays in central Italy
Even in the Apennine region there are very picturesque lakes such as Lake Bolsena, the largest lake of volcanic origin in Europe, Lake Bracciano or Lake Trasimeno. These are all popular destinations for a stay at the lake that combines lake views to romantic villages overlooking their shores. These are the lakes of reference for those who live in nearby regions, places that differ greatly from those admired around the Alpine lakes, but no less fascinating.
A less mountainous vegetation, more Mediterranean, distinguishes the scenarios that adorn the shores of Bracciano and Trasimeno. Here too, the natural beauty and landscape is combined with the charm of ancient historic buildings, mostly of medieval origin, as well as finds related to ancient Rome, which can still be admired around the large basins of water. A perfect way to enrich your weekend at the lake with a cultural and artistic component.
Holidays at the lake are synonymous with rest and relaxation, but also with outdoor activities, sports and fun. In many lakes it is possible to practice water sports (windsurfing, sailing or canoeing) or activities in contact with nature such as fishing, hiking or mountain biking.
Choose the house to rent and plan your naturalistic, cultural, gastronomic or romantic itinerary. The lake is the perfect destination for a holiday or a tour outside the city, for those who want to be moved by the surrounding landscape, get lost among medieval villages and villages that still retain the characteristic appearance of fishing villages, taste wines and typical local food and wine on the banks of the basins or take a romantic walk on the lakeside at sunset.
