About Lake Garda

One of the most beautiful and naturally peaceful spots in Europe - with a backdrop of the Dolomites on one side and neat rows of vines on the other — Lake Garda has been a refuge for writers in search of inspiration and stressed out emperors and their hangers-on for millennia. The region's popularity with wealth and power is reflected in the variety and beauty of the lake's resort towns, which the lake's fans, from 16th Century poets to modern A-listers, proclaim aren't just the best places to stay on Lake Garda, they're also the most idyllic in Europe.

Some of our Lake Garda Collections:

Despite being the largest of northern Italy's great lakes, Lake Garda's sun-drenched scenery of vineyards, olive groves and cypresses makes it look much more like southern Italy. Lake Garda is around 50kms long, and there are charming resort towns dotted around all points of the lake's compass, Gardone Riviera has to be the most glamourous. One of the pleasures of this region is taking outings to the different towns, with their unique personalities, cultural diversity, pretty churches, ancient frescoes, botanical gardens, promenades, colourful market, local wines and other specialities… Or you could hop between them.

Market days differ from town to town, so you can visit each town at its best and busiest. You can hop by local ferry - which range in type of craft from leisurely paced historic paddle steamers to speedy hydrofoils - or drive. The resorts of Garda, Bardolino and Lazise, on the lake's south eastern bank, are linked by a walking trail with charming views, so you can even 'hop' on foot. Gargnano is another good base for walkers, whether you go for a strenuous hike up the towering hills or promenade down the lakeside to ogle the Villa Feltrinelli. Don't miss charming little Montichiari. It may not be right on the Lake, but its hilltop position affords stunning views in all directions.

A number of the best places to stay on Lake Garda also offer their guests complimentary use of hotel bikes, and there are some particularly scenic cycling routes between some of the smaller resorts. So, while choosing the right resort is a big part of planning your visit to Lake Garda, hopefully you'll also have time to explore further afield.

What not to Miss

Lake Garda is rich in picturesque sites and sights, but the best known and ones you really don't want to miss include:

  • The views from the funicular up Monte Baldo. The peak is 1760m above sea level and the rotating cabins reveal the lake in all its glory.
  • The Rock of Minerva, now a UNESCO protected site, but once the site of a Roman temple dedicated to Minerva.
  • A visit to the small private island, Isola del Garda, and a tour of the scenic formal gardens and sumptuous Venetian villa hosted by the present owners.

As well as the lake's natural assets and charming resorts towns, Garda also has many beautiful and often extravagant villas, some of them built by Roman senators, and some of them by today's Hollywood A-listers. That's how long this spot has been considered an idyllic spot for a break.

Why Stay on Lake Garda's Northern Shore?

  • The lake's north is narrower and lined with steep, green slopes and high peaks.
  • This is where you'll find the best conditions for watersports, climbing, hiking and mountain biking etc. - this is the lake's active holiday Mecca.
  • Part of Austria up until the end of WWI, the lake's northern side still serves Austrian style hams and salted beef, and the towns have a more northern European flavour.

Why Stay on Lake Garda's Southern Side?

  • The lake widens to the south, and it is much warmer, more Mediterranean, away from the breeze which sweeps in off the Dolomites in the afternoons.
  • The resort towns here have more vineyard views and more of an Italian flavour.
  • This is where you'll find the campsites, family friendly farmhouses and spa towns.
  • This is still a beautiful place to explore on foot, but it's flatter and much easier going.

Our Guru's pick of the best places to stay on Lake Garda represents every genre of Italian hotel, from farm accommodation (agriturismo) and old-fashioned pensioni to one of the most luxurious hotels in Europe, the Feltrinelli.

The Best Places to Stay on Lake Garda

For Lake Garda's southern shores

Lake Garda's southern region broadens into two bays sheltered by the Sirmione peninsula - as well as being in a prime position for beautiful views, Sirmione is also known for the ruins of a Roman villa and a 13th Century castle, so this is definitely a town to visit even if you don't stay here. The Romans probably built here because of the nearby sulphur springs.

Bardolino, linked by the lakeside path to Garda Town and Lazise, and Salò or Torri del Benaco are other popular towns on the lake's southern edge. Bardolino began as a fishing village but has become a relaxed and cosmopolitan centre, with an elegant 19th Century esplanade. Salò is known for its arcaded waterfront. Desenzano is the largest of the lakeside towns and while it's definitely the 'good transport hub', that the guides tell you, it's also lively and historic.

  • Villa Cortine Palace typifies Lake Garda perfectly. Sitting right on the tip of the Sirmione peninsula, this grand old villa hotel is rich with frescoes, antiques and lovely 30s style rooms. It's also surrounded by its own gardens dotted with fountains and neoclassical statues, so it's very romantic.
  • Locanda Agli Angeli is a restaurant-with-rooms with bags of charm. Several of the nine rooms have four poster beds, so this is also a great option for romantics on a budget - rooms start from £67.
  • In Torri del Benaco, one of Lake Garda's prettiest Verona side fishing villages, Gardesana is simple and charming, with excellent views of the bustling little harbour and an excellent restaurant.

For Lake Garda's northern shores

The main towns along Lake Garda's northern shores are Riva del Garda, Torbole and Limone. The mountains and cliff faces around these towns trap the warmer air, creating wonderfully windy conditions for sailing and other wind and water sports. The winds also offer a respite for those who like their beachside afternoons cooled by pleasant breezes - there are beaches, natural and manmade, all around the lake.

Riva del Garda is the lake's second largest town, but has arguably the most beautiful setting. This is a popular spot for visitors who like a bit of city bustle to their lakeside break. Just nestled behind it is Arco, a quieter option. And Limone is the sweet-scented lemon and olive oil capital with the wonderfully rich history, historic harbour and lush surrounds.

On the northern Verona side shore, Malcesine is one of Lake Garda's prettiest medieval towns, with the requisite castle above narrow winding streets, now populated by lovely little boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

  • The LIdo Palace offers five stars worth of wonder right on the shores of the lake and at the foot of the mountains - this is really one of the planet's most idyllic settings. Behind the Liberty style facade are sleek, contemporary rooms, an award winning spa and a Michelin recommended restaurant.
  • Bellevue San Lorenzo sits high on the flanks of Monte Baldo, a popular, Belle Epoque villa in beautiful grounds, converted into a simply furnished modern hotel. From this height, you get a panoramic view of the lake.
  • Right on the water's edge, the Villa Giulia is a handsome, Victorian affair with large, light, airy rooms and a collection of lovely antiques and water-view terraces. Rooms start from £194 per night.

The Best Places to stay in Gargnano

  • Hotel du Lac enjoys a wonderful lake-side location, just outside Gargnano. This period Venetian style villa offers just twelve classically styled rooms (six with lake views and balconies), plus a lovely breakfasting terrace which almost hovers above the water.
  • The Gardenia al Lago (sister property to the Hotel Du Lac) boasts a similarly impressive lakeside location, and here you'll find an elegant small hotel (only seven bedrooms) filled with period furnishings, plus offering a sun terrace and restaurant overlooking the water.

The Most Luxurious Places to Stay on Lake Garda

  • Locanda San Vigilio, just above Garda and bustling Bardolino, is an elegant and intimate hotel right on the lake. Originally owned by an Italian Count, this grand dwelling has been a hotel for the last 500 years. So it's an extra special, and traditionally luxurious place to relax.
  • Villa Arcadio, in charming Salò, is a fabulous stone villa built on a hilltop which offers spectacular views of the lake. The decor is bare but beautiful and the restaurant is gourmet. This is luxury at its most refined, rather than opulent, but it's also affordable, with rooms starting from £201 per night.
  • Lake Garda has always attracted those for whom money is not a problem, and, if you can afford it, the Villa Feltrinelli is a wonderful place to stay. Converted from a historic house, with superbly restored art and antiques, this house now offers Michelin starred dining as well as its serene location. Rooms start at £837 per night.

The Best Places to Stay for views on Lake Garda

  • Bella Riva has direct access to the lake and the views are spectacular, from the pool, the restaurant and a number of private terraces. As well as views, the Bella Riva also specialises in watersports.
  • The Lefay Resort & Spa is perched on a hilltop, so the views of Lake Garda are panoramic, rather than close up. Some of the rooms have private hot tubs and sun decks and these tend to have special views as well. As do the gardens and pool areas.
  • Dimora Bolsone offers more 'bird's eye' views. this time from a restored medieval manor house above the town of Gardone Riviera. The B&B itself has extensive grounds, but this is also a great base for walkers. And it's right next to the Vittoriale Degli Italiani, the magnificent home of the poet Gabriele DiAnnunzio.

The Best Places to stay on Lake Garda for Families

As well as the beaches, historic sites, pretty towns and markets and the possibilities of trying all sorts of different watersports, Lake Garda also has the Gardaland Theme Parks, near Lazise in the south eastern corner, which are great for a kid's day out. So this is a great destination for families.

  • Hotel Laurin, near Salò is perfect, elegant Lake Garda glamour on the outside, and frescoes and Art Deco furniture on the inside - yet it's big enough, and modern enough, and has enough of a garden and pool, to be ideal for families.
  • Also in Salò, Hotel Bellerive has large, stylish rooms and apartments overlooking the lake, many of which are large enough to accommodate a whole family. They'll also help organise sailing, cycling, golf and picnics - for example.
  • While Tenuta Le Sorgive isn't on the lake, this agriturismo is only a short distance from the lake's southern bank, yet surrounded by countryside. This is a great place for a healthy, outdoorsy break, with lots of activities on offer and a restaurant which serves food grown right here! And rooms start from just £81 per night.
  • La Finestra Sul Fiume is another rustic charmer, this time with only five rooms, so you can be guaranteed peace and relaxation, but with all the pleasures of the lake nearby.

The Best B&Bs on Lake Garda

  • On the hill above Gardone Riviera, Dimora Bolsone is a stylish, ten room B&B in a converted medieval manor house. Quiet and secluded, you get views over the whole area from the house’s position above the town, plus there’s a lovely garden and simple rooms with nice antiques and objets.
  • Also in Gardone Riviera, the Villa Vittoria is a graceful villa set amongst palm trees. There are eight large bedrooms, with chic, white interiors, beamed ceilings and Persian rugs. There’s also communal living and dining areas. Rooms start from around £70 per night.
  • The Garni Gianmartin in Limone is a seven room B&B on the main square, just minutes from the beach. The rooms are simple and comfortable, and all have lake views. The suites have their own private terraces as well. The breakfasts are hearty, and the rooms, with breakfasts, start from around £70 per night.
  • The Vivere Suites are a sleek collection of six contemporary ground floor suites, all with private gardens and kitchenettes. There’s a spa and pool onsite and there’s plenty of facilities for outdoor adventures close by.
  • La Finestra Sul Fiume is a rustic, five room B&B set on the side of a river, between Lake Garda and Verona. This peaceful stone cottage has whitewashed walls and exposed beams, plus romantic terraces.

If you're confident a B&B is for you, here's a ful list of the best B&Bs on Lake Garda.

The Best Value Places to Stay on Lake Garda

  • The B&B Big Sur in Gardone Riviera, is in the hills, just above Lake Garda, and has three simple, but stylish rooms. Perfect for families and groups. Rooms start from £50 per night.
  • Sirmione’s Il Mosaico B&B is a six room, adults only B&B set just back from the lake. There’s comfortable, contemporary decor, air conditioning, wifi and plenty of parking, and all for around £55 per night.
  • The Villa San Pietro in medieval Montichiari, is a spacious B&B right in the heart of medieval Montichiari. There are just three rooms, but they’re each very spacious and individually decorated with antiques and family heirlooms, plus there’s a very warm welcome and plenty of activities on offer. Room start from around £70 per night.

Prefer a self-catering Apartment or lake-side Villa?

  • Sometimes a villa or apartment is the best option if you're travelling in a larger group, so if you decide that you'd prefer a self catering option, check out our online booking partner, booking.com for some inspiration.

Travel Information

  • Lake Garda is positioned between several international airports: Verona-Villafranca, which is about 15kms away and Brescia-Montichiari, which is about 30kms away. But it’s also about 100kms from Venice Marco Polo airport and from Milan’s Linate and Malpensa. Alternatively there are good rail links to the lake.
  • If you want to hire a car - which we strongly advise if you’re staying on Lake Garda - we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars.
  • Lake Garda has always been an extremely desirable holiday destination, so if you're planning to visit in the high season you should expect full hotels and reservations required for the most popular restaurants - but this is the place to see and be seen, and the bustle is part of the shining appeal. Even if you're not hoping to visit in peak season it's still advisable to book the best places to stay on Lake Garda several months in advance - and even then charm and diplomacy may be required.
