Holiday on Lake Idro

Holiday on Lake Idro

A lake enclosed by lush green mountains....

We continue to hear that most lakes in Northern Italy are frequently visited places in the summer, but that does not apply to Idro. Here you'll relax in an authentic, picturesque setting.

Overwhelming

Everything here is small; the villages, campsites, shopping. That does not mean however that there's nothing to do here. Climb the pristine mountains, go horse riding, rowing in a boat on the lake or walk around and let the stunning surroundings take you to another world. Visit the small surrounding villages and find out what 'picturesque' actually means.

Crystal clear water

Lake Idro is surrounded by the foothills of the Alps and is fed by glacier water. This mega-pure water is, in summer, an ideal temperature of around 24 degrees. Here you'll want to take a dip every day! It is, thanks to a lovely breeze, never too hot here but always warm enough for sunbathing. Sounds like the perfect holiday, right?
