Lakes & Mountains resorts sit among some of Europe’s most magnificent scenery, so our holidays always have a backdrop of colourful landscapes, whether you choose a lake or a mountain base.
Mountain holidays put you among Alpine peaks and green pastures, 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.
Val di Fassa
Lake holidays are all about relaxing on the waterfront, having a paddle and ferry-hopping around ancient fishing towns. If it’s your first time, try Lake Garda, Lake Como or Lake Maggiore in Italy, or Bled in Slovenia.
Location, location, location
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.
Gardone, Lake Garda
You’ll stay in a family-run guesthouse or smaller hotel, where you can get to know the staff you see every day and personal service is a priority. And tasting the local flavours is all part of it, 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, such as 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.
The sights and sounds
Explore at your own pace or let us show you the sights of the area on one of our handpicked excursions. 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. Visit for a day or get the best of both worlds and split your time on one of our multi-centre holidays.
