3 Stunning Lakeside Vacations In Europe
Europe is full of wonderful lakes. In this blog post, we are having a look at four that have caught our attention as they feature great holiday housing on their shores. All of these destinations are best visited during the summertime but who says you can’t break the expectations and make a winter getaway instead? You never know, you might be lucky with the weather!
Lake Garda, Italy
The largest lake in Italy is located between the famous Italian cities of Milan, Venice, Brescia, and Verona. It’s one of the most popular holiday destinations in Northern Italy as the lake is surrounded by a lot of holiday homes, hotels, and other places to stay. As the lake is pretty big, you are able to visit many different villages and towns, each of which has its own character. Lake Garda is a must-go destination for anyone having a romantic or just relaxing holiday in mind. Once you see the amazing scenery, smell the beautiful flowers, and take a dip in the lake, you’ll never want to get back home.
Lake Como, Italy
Once again, we focus on Northern Italy but it’s almost impossible to skip this world-renowned lake resort. It’s surrounded by numerous towns and villages: most famous are Bellagio, Lecco, Menaggio, and Varenna. In 2014, The Huffington Post named Lake Como as the most beautiful lake in the whole world! And it isn’t hard at all to see why they would do that. Exquisite cafes, stunning villas, and where’s-my-camera-vistas have been luring the rich and famous for quite a while now. Even George Clooney has fallen in love with this place.
Lake Ohrid, Macedonia and Albania
Lake Ohrid, one of Europe’s deepest lakes, has turned into a prime tourism spot in the summertime. You may choose between Albania and Macedonia – or why not both? – when making plans for enjoying the beach bliss. The biggest towns allowing access to this lake are Pogradec in Albania and Ohrid along with Struga in Macedonia. The shore’s length is over 80 kilometres, meaning you can explore little villages with your rental car and not only stay at the bigger resort towns. In 2014, Lake Ohrid was added to UNESCO’s list of Biosphere Reserves.
