A week-long foodie escape to glorious Lake Garda, with tickets to the famous Bardolino Food Festival

Lake Garda is one of Italy’s quintessential holiday destinations for good reason: incredible landscapes suffused with soft light, a shimmering sheet of water, tranquil breezes, beautiful towns to explore and delicious wine and food grown in abundance nearby. With a week to explore the sights and plenty of inclusions to help you squeeze every last drop out of your stay, you’ll find it hard to drag yourself away when it’s time to head home.

Your trip is stuffed with highlights, including visiting the Vinitaly and the City exhibition in Bardolino – you’ll even get your own professional tasting glass to tote around the stalls, alongside tasty nibbles. You'll also enjoy a guided hike around the lake shore, over which you can take in panoramic views over the water, and you'll take part in a cookery class and get to eat your creations: fresh pasta, silky sauces, a sinfully good dessert, of course accompanied by fizzing prosecco and a glass or two of local wine. Plus, you'll take a day trip to the romantic city of Verona, where you'll be guided around the old town.

Good to know

Please note that the pool's opening times are weather-dependent.

Accommodation

Set a short walk from the shores of Lake Garda, Hotel Villa Madrina is family run and packed with history and tradition – expect old-fashioned Italian hospitality and stunning interiors filled with antiques. Each of the hotel’s 34 spacious suites provides a restful place to stay, with all the mod cons you’ll need plus a scenic balcony with views of the lake.

Amenities:

- Wi-Fi
- En-suite bathroom

Dining

You’ll get plenty of opportunity to explore the region’s gastronomy throughout your stay, but don’t miss the chance to sample northern Italy’s finest at the hotel’s renowned restaurant, Madreperla. Traditions are important here, and the fresh homemade pasta is made to the same recipe as nonna would have used; try slippery tagliatelle, stuffed tortelli shells or thick ribbons of pappardelle, each with an unctuous sauce.

Wellness

When you’re not indulging in gourmet suppers or imbibing rich, full-bodied wines, the hotel offers a different kind of pampering in its wellness centre. Complete with sauna, steam bath and fitness suite, there are treatment rooms for massage and marine-inspired therapies for face and body.

Location

Situated a little way back from the lake shore, Villa Madrina is perfectly placed for exploring, offering easy access to local walking routes and roads that lead you to the best sights in the Veneto. You’ll be just moments away from the centre of Garda, where there are restaurants, cafes and bars galore, plus that ever-present view of the lake. Villa Madrina is 40 kilometres from Verona.
