Imagine crystal-clear lakes flanked by jaw-dropping mountains sprinkled with charming towns and villages, and yes, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in Switzerland, but these are the majestic lakes of northern Italy; each with their own distinct character, they are simply breath-taking. Take a boat around Lake Como, sailing past palatial lakeside villas owned by the rich and famous, before stopping off at Bellagio - the jewel in Como's crown. Try Lake Garda - the largest of Italy's lakes - for family fun, or the smaller islands of Maggiore and Orta - both of which are pretty and full of tradition. Wander round medieval cobbled streets at any of these lakes, and you'll be greeted with mesmerising views, superb seafood and wine, and a sense of peace only a lakeside retreat can bring. For a spellbinding birds-eye view, sea plane rides are incredibly thrilling. Otherwise, pull up a seat and immerse yourself in the alpine-like beauty of these special locations in northern Italy. Choose to stay in a pastel hue villa, lakeside property or elegant house - perfect for enjoying your dream Italian lake holiday with Quality Villas.
