    You will be staying at the family-friendly Du Lac et Du Parc Grand Resort, located just moments from the town of Riva del Garda and surrounded by the spectacular mountains. Boasting huge gardens to roam and a first-class activity center offering a wealth of water and land-based adventures. You can all take part in sailing and windsurfing on the clear waters of the lake or cycling through the parkland gardens. Not forgetting the epic kids club, two swimming pools, tennis courts, and the Armonia Spa. The best way to get out and explore the lake is from a splendid 35-foot sailing boat with your private guide, take in the incredible views sailing past charming towns and have fun on the crystal clear waters, all whilst being supplied with snacks aplenty on board.  Before leaving the shores of the stunning Lake Garda, be sure to visit the charming village of Malcesine.
