The Italian Lakes hold some of Italy’s most dramatic scenery, with lakes and palm trees in the foreground and snow-capped mountains in the background. Morning mists give way to glorious sunshine as you stroll through picturesque lakeside towns of pastel-colored houses, palatial villas and stately gardens. It’s easy to see why the dazzling lakes of northern Italy have long been beloved by writers, poets, musicians, and movie stars. Lakes don’t come any more dramatic.
We have villas throughout the Italian Lakes region including villas on Lake Como, and villas on Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda. You’ll find villas and apartments for honeymoons, villas for families traveling with kids, and villas perfect for weddings both large and small.
American novelist Henry James said it best when he wrote “One can’t describe the beauty of the Italian lakes, nor would one try if one could.” No wonder artists like Keats, Wordsworth, Hemingway, Rossini, and Verdi came to the lakes for inspiration. We can’t promise that renting a villa on the Italian lakes will move you to write lyric poetry or compose a symphony...but we’re sure that you’ll be inspired by the extravagant beauty, breathtaking scenery, and wealth of activities of the Italian Lake District.
