Italian rental villas offer self-catering facilities and holiday vacations of charm Salo, Lake Garda, Italy, Salo, Desenzano, Gardone, Limone, Toscolano Maderno, Riva del Garda,

Many people are familiar with the names of Milan, known for its fashion and shoes; Lake Como, the jewell of a lake in the mountains featured in magazines; and have perhaps heard of Cremona (violins) and Mantua (Gonzaga).

All of these wonderful places are in the region of Lombardy in the central north of the country. We present you with a selection of vacation rental villas and apartments that feature these well known locations and a few others that are not as famous, but perhaps offer even more to the holiday maker.

Why the Lakes area and Lombardy

  • Visit Lakes Como, Garda, Maggiore, Iseo
  • Go walking in the hills and mountains
  • Explore the centres of Milan, Bergamo, Cremona, Mantua
  • Visit the wine areas of Franciacorta, Garda

More about Lombardy and the Lakes

The wealthy northern region of Lombardy has led the industrial and financial growth of Italy in the postwar period. Blessed by high mountains and plenty of fresh water, the many valleys that snake up from the flat plains to the south have developed specialisations in various industries from silk (Como) to armoury (Val Trompia).

Such wealth has often made its way up to Switzerland and the golden trail that runs along side Lake Como has been famous for moneyrunning for many decades. Little wonder, therefore, that this lake, the deepest and best known of the Italian Lakes has a rich collection of magnificent villas and public gardens making it a perfect destination for renting a holiday villa.

Milan is 75 klm south of Como and Italys financial and fashion capital. Heading east, the centre of Bergamo 'Alto' is perhaps the prettiest hilltop town in Italy. Soon after one reaches Franciacorta, an area noted for fine prosecco's (champagne in another language), wonderful food and Iseo Lake.

Further to the east and bordering the region of Veneto (near Verona) is Italy's largest lake, Lake Garda. Broad and surrounded by gentle hills at the southern end, the lake becomes more dramatic towards the north. The spectacular northern end of the lake is a wind and kite surfing mecca with favourable winds each afternoon.
