With glittering blue waters, a mountainous backdrop, neat vineyard rows and charming lakeside towns, it’s no wonder that Lake Garda is one of Europe’s favourite yearly holiday spots. It was once a playground for Ancient Roman writers, European royalty and wealthy business men – so it’s not surprising that this northern Italian region now boasts some truly gorgeous hotels. Choose from grand converted villas, luxury resort hotels with a twist, light contemporary lakeside properties and those that let the spectacular views speak for themselves.
The Hotel Caesius is one of the best hotels near Lake Garda for those who want a taste of luxury without blowing their entire budget.

For those who want to get out on the water, there are plenty of jetty-backed boat tours available, plus you can visit the resort’s own spa and indulge in some of the region’s famous thermal treatments.
