Villages upon ledges and stunning views. An ideal climate for the growth of olives and citrus fruits. The perfect gym for aquatics in constantly blowing wind. Lake Garda, originally called Benaco or Benacus, seems to be a small sea, comfortably narrow between plain and mountain: at the foot of the mountain Monte Pizzocolo. Thanks to its geography this land has a unique microclimate. The greenhouses for lemon trees, the so-called “Limonaie”, set the scene with their colors and their charming scent and here the cultivation of olives achieves its northernmost degree of latitude.
The “dolce vita” in the villages of the Garda Veneto comprises all aspects of the lively and carefree life: the summer, the people, the nightlife, the event locations, the enjoyment, the aperitifs at the lakeside, the meetings in the trendy clubs, the events, the fashion, the lifestyle.
To love these places just take a glass of wine or take a walk at the lakeside and you will find out how crisply the air is here.
Even exhibitions, concerts and events are able to attract thousands of people to this region. It would be reductive to describe it solely as a paradise of enjoyment, because this is really one of the places which is capable to make everyone happy.

for your new Italian home at Lake Garda
Thanks to its privileged geographical position between the Alps and the Po Valley Lake Garda is the most famous and most visited lake in Italy and apart from that it is also the largest one. In the North surrounded like a fjord between the high mountains of the Brescian Alps, the Monte Baldo and the summit of Garda Trentino. In the South the lake passes by a picturesque hilly landscape with numerous olive groves and internationally renowned wine regions.
Ever since a touristic destination, Lake Garda has particularly favourable climatic conditions due to the enormous dimensions of water masses, the low height above sea level and the protected geographical position. This has favoured the formation of a Mediterranean vegetation. The average annual temperature is between 13 °C and 15 °C. In particular lovers of water sports prefer Lake Garda due to its constant wind “Ora”, which blows from the South in the afternoon until evening, and “Pelèr”, which breezes from the North towards South in the morning when the warm air of the lake rises and the air from the Sarca Valley (Valle del Sarca) comes in.
