Local food, leisurely strolls and endless views in some of Europe’s most beautiful destinations – here’s everything you need to know about Lakes & Mountains holidays.
Our Lakes & Mountains resorts are all surrounded by impressive landscapes, so you’ll have a plenty to see wherever you choose to go.
Mountain holidays put you among Alpine peaks and green meadows, in old farming towns with chocolate-box views – best admired from a gentle walking path or pavement café. Not sure where to start? Take a look at Kitzbühel, Seefeld or Mayrhofen in Austria, or Val di Fassa in the Italian Dolomites.
Lake holidays are all about relaxing on the waterfront, paddling in clear waters and ferry-hopping around colourful towns. If it’s your first time, try Lake Garda, Lake Como or Lake Maggiore in Italy, or Bled in Slovenia.

Early evening strolls, favourite bars and all that culture on your doorstep – our holidays are based in proper towns, so you can get to know the area like one of the locals.
You’ll stay in a family-run guesthouse or smaller hotel, where you can get to know the staff and personal service is a priority. And tasting the local flavours is all part of it too, so you can expect house specialities and regional delicacies, freshly brewed beer and tours of the nearby vineyards.
There are saints days and seasonal festivities dotted through the year, like the Chiaretto Wine Festival in Bardolino, and St Johann’s delicious dumpling festival. Join the merrymaking and remember to pick up a souvenir at the weekly markets.

You’re never far from a waterfall, mountain railway or local beauty spot and some of Europe’s best-loved cities are within easy reach too. Visit for a day and explore at your own pace, or get the best of both worlds and split your time on one of our multi-centre holidays.
