Lake Garda straddles three provinces, Verona to the south east, Brescia to the south west and Trento to the north; it’s also Italy’s largest lake. The lake is just over 50km long, 20km wide and would take you about 3 hours to drive around its circumference (160km). Up until the end of World War 1, the northern part of the lake belonged to Austria and the landscape is arguably more Austrian than Italian.
The Lake Garda region offers a huge variety of activities for holiday makers – the narrow northern corridor is a Mecca for windsurfers and the surrounding dolomites are a perfect getaway for hill walkers, rock climbers and mountain bikers. Riva Del Garda, which will be your home for the duration of your stay, is a very picturesque village and is on the most northern tip of the lake. Riva has provided our customers with many happy memories for the past 19 years and many people return time and time again.
Known as the ‘floating flower garden’, the beautiful island of Madeira is situated off the west coast of Morocco.

Offering the visitor a kaleidoscope of visual treats, with green terraced mountainsides, a superb climate, dramatic rocky outcrops and picturesque villages, there is nothing more one could ask for. With a tour of the city of Funchal, free time to relax on the beach and an excursion to the island’s best viewing points, this botanical paradise will beguile and charm you.
