As a large percentage of visitors to Love Lake Garda are our brothers from over ‘the pond’, I thought I’d write a post to encourage them not just to visit Love Lake Garda, but also to take a Lake Garda vacation.
It’s well known that Americans have a love affair with Europe, infact almost 12 million of them travel to Europe every year. That’s around 18% of all Americans who take their vacations abroad, almost twice as many that visit the next popular destination which is the Caribbean.
American Celebrities in Lake Garda
Maybe Lake Garda isn’t so well known in America as Lake Como, because of the George Clooney factor, but I’m sure it will be soon, especially if the rumours are true. What are the rumours? That Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, along with many other celebs, are purchasing a property in a luxury development that is being constructed in the hills above Gardone Riviera.
If this rumour turns out to be true, then the chance of drinking your coffee across the table from the movie heart throb is definitely going to push up visitor numbers to this fascinating region.
Now you might not be able to afford a private property in a luxury development, but there are thousands of Lake Garda vacation villa rentals to choose from, so you could still have an amazing base in Lake Garda.
Why Visit Lake Garda Checklist
An American’s View of Lake Garda
I don’t really bump into too many Americans, but I did meet this one lady with whom I’ve since became friends; her name is Susan and this is what she has to say:
“Since my first European vacation as a teenager, I was drawn to the lakes of Northern Italy where the snow-capped mountains meet the water. I don’t think there any more beautiful area in the world – particularly when you factor in the delightful people, amazing food and beautiful sunshine. When my husband and I started looking at retirement options, we had the crazy idea to visit towns all around the different lakes one winter, searching for just the right combination of beauty, nature and abundant activities – and when we came to Lake Garda, we knew we’d found our new home. As Americans, we do like the fact that we don’t encounter a lot of other Americans there, but we would encourage more of them to visit Lake Garda! It is a wonderfully “Italian” area, surrounded by natural areas for walking, driving and, of course, relaxing over a delightful meal. Eventually, we selected Saló as the place where we bought a home with a beautiful view of the lake, just a few minutes’ walk from the historical center and the beach, convenient to shopping and only a short drive to the mountains or day trips to lovely historical areas by car or boat. We’re not big sports enthusiasts, but we enjoy watching the boaters, wakeboarders, parasailers and windsurfers all around the lake. There is no end to the options for those who enjoy the outdoors, even if that means just spending the afternoon basking in the sun, at a restaurant in one of the lake towns along the lungolago!”
