The town of Garda holds a fair every year in June to celebrate the start of the summer season. Local people as well as tourists gather together for the festivities and witness the fair with great enthusiasm and pride. Here, a freshwater fish called Sardelle is very famous and typical of the region, and you will find it served in a variety of ways at the festival, as well as plenty of other tasty Italian dishes. Take a relaxing stroll through the beautiful scenery of Garda or relax by the lakeside during your stay in one of our range of self-catering holiday accommodation in Italy. Alternatively, you can always relax on your balcony or terrace whilst enjoying the spectacular view.

Beaches in Veneto – Italian villa holidays

Italy has so many fantastic stretches of coastline that the beaches of Veneto are often overlooked. All along the region’s coastline, from the Po Delta National Park in the west to Bibione in the east, there are delightful beaches to enjoy. Italian villas in the region have easy access to family friendly seaside resorts, such as Caorle, to the west of Venice, which has a 300m-wide sandy beach which leaves plenty of room for family fun. Veneto may lack the secluded coves of Sardinia, but it makes up for this with easily accessible beachside activities and reasonable prices. Escape Venice accommodation in the height of summer and head to the beach for a gelato and a paddle.

Venice – a city break or a day trip

The city of Venice is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Italy and the world. A much loved honeymoon destination, this city has everything from picturesque canals, to wonderful art galleries and delicious seafood – fresh from the lagoon. NOVASOL has a number of apartments in Venice which are ideal for holidaymakers that want to be right in the centre of the action. However, the city is also easy to get to by train from Italian villas across the Veneto region. Choose a day of your holiday to get up early and visit Venice on a day trip, taking in the sights before returning to the comfort of your holiday rental in the evening.

Veneto has some incredible local dishes and culinary specialities to try on Italian villas holidays. This area of Italy is known for its sparkling white wines, particularly prosecco which is made here from local grapes and shipped out all over the world. These crisp wines are best enjoyed with seafood dishes such as fried squid and prawns, featuring on specials menus in family-run restaurants on the coast and in the countryside.
