Getting help because everything is tailor-made and runs smoothly in one of the most exciting moments of life, gives you the tranquility that only those who do it professionally can give.
Relaxation and wellness weekend.
On Valentine’s Day, immersed in the Mediterranean climate of Lake Garda, spring certainly peeps out in advance with the first warmth. February is the perfect season to enjoy the various Garda spas with indoor and outdoor pools, treatments and pampering for all needs. Not only that, there are also many hotels with adjoining Terme & Spa where you can forget about shoes and clothes and relax in a bathrobe and slippers for whole days!
For this type of weekend instead we move to the Garda shores to enjoy, together with healthy physical activity, also breathtaking views that range from the blue of the lake to that of the sky.
We recommend some trekking and mountain bike routes that will leave your partner stunned for the beauty of the landscape and the surrounding nature: the Busatte – Tempesta panoramic path with its 3 iconic overhanging stairways anchored in the rock, Punta Larici to enjoy sunrises and spectacular sunsets, and Cima Comer the balcony of Lake Garda where you can take a nice souvenir photo kissing.
For those wishing to personalize their sporting outings with a guide we recommend: a nice ride with Bike Experience – Slow Tourism to discover the area on two wheels, trekking or ski mountaineering with Marta Cavallari – Medium Mountain Guide.
After so much sport, let yourself be pampered by the many restaurants dotted around Lake Garda. You can get inspired by clicking here.
Eno-gastronomic weekend in the middle of nature.
Traveling is also discovering new flavors, new recipes, niche wineries. The Garda hinterland offers you two regions, unique of their kind, where unspoiled nature offers dop eno-gastronomic products that tasting on site will make your lunches and dinners even more special and unforgettable: we are talking about Valpolicella, land of vineyards, prestigious Venetian villas and fantastic farmhouses; and Lessinia, a real open-air museum where you can stop off between typical mountain huts and local food.
By choosing to visit these lands we are sure you will return home with your eyes full of good memories and carefree moments.
