Luxury Holidays, Events or Weddings with Rental Villas on Lake Garda

A boat tour can be an excellent way to discover the dozens of splendid historical villas and palaces from the 1800’s that are spread across the coast of Lake Garda, especially on the western coast near the town of Salò, and north towards Gardone Riviera, Toscolano Maderno, and Gargnano.

Lake Garda has been a vacation spot since ancient roman times, where it attracted visitors thanks to its thermal waters and warm climate. One of the most noteworthy destinations is Sirmione, that before becoming famous for its fortification built by the Scaligeri family, it was loved for its thermal waters, and to this day the famous roman villa known as Catullo’s grottos can be visited.

For the past two thousand years the most noble and wealthy families of Italy, and these days, of the World, strive to buy or build villas on the banks of Lake Garda, where they can spend the winter months sheltered from the breeze, or can enjoy a dive in the clear lake waters in the summer months.

Many of these Villas are rented to rich tourists in search of an exclusive vacation complete with all the most luxurious and comfortable services.
