Lake District
The Essential

Maggiore, Orta, Como, Iseo and Garda are all legends in their own right. Of glacial origins, these long, narrow expanses of water stretch out from Piedmont to Venetia and from Switzerland to Trentino at the foothills of the Lombardy Alps. The climate is mild and the landscape of blue waters and towering peaks is particularly pleasing. It is impossible to resist the charm of these Alpine and southern landscapes, the shores of which are lined in opulent villas set in superb gardens and tiny fishing harbours.
