July 01, 2008
July is here already...I'm sure that a lot of you are getting ready for the kids breaking up this month from school (here in England anyway...) for the summer holidays. The rest of you, such as those in Scotland, the USA, and Canada (my homeland) must already have the kids at home!
You're probably all thinking about your holiday this summer and getting ready for it now. It's an exciting time of year! I know that some of you are planning a trip to Lake Garda this summer...so this month I'm going to fill you in about the different types of accommodation at Lake Garda; let you know what to expect from them.
There are several types of accommodations: Hotels, Residences, Villas, Agriturismos, and, for those who really want to be 'at one' with nature...Camping!
In most towns around the Lake, you'll find many things going on throughout the year, including art exhibitions, festivals, wine and food tastings, theatre events and sports events.
If you'd like to know about any of these events in particular for this month, then please contact us, as we only cover the main events each month.

I'm pleased to say that we have a wonderful story for you this month from one of our subscribers! Here it is...
Dear Marcus and Sylvia:
Our trip to Italy was wonderful! We had visited many places during our 15 day trip beginning in Rome, traveling south to the Almafi coast and north to Lake Garda.
Our most memorable visit was in Torri Del Benaco where we spent the last four days of our trip visiting my husbands' family, which we didn't know about until two years ago! This was so "exciting" and to think they reside in lovely Torri Del Benaco! We loved meeting the family. They were all so very gracious and hospitable and saying goodbye to them was difficult as it was to leave this lovely land!
Torri Del Benaco is beautiful. We were in awe of Lake Garda, all the little shops, the castle and restaurants along the water, what a wonderful place to visit, we cannot wait to go back.
During our visit and stay with family, they took us up to the top of the mountain in Torri and showed us the villa that my husbands' grandfather was born in! Can you imagine how wonderful that was? Also in the town is a very old, small church dedicated to WWI soldiers. My husbands' great grandfather, Guerino Alberghini's name is engraved in stone (along with others) inside the church for having fought and died during World War I.
It was very touching to be able to find our family roots and still have a number of family members residing in this beautiful little town on Lake Garda. It was sad leaving our new found family and this beautiful place called Torri Del Benaco.
We plan to return within the next few years, spending more time with our new family and exploring more of what Lake Garda has to offer.
Thank you both for the information provided on your web site, I always look forward to your newsletter.
