Apart from luxurious food and stunning historical monuments, Italy is also dominated by vast natural beauty. Lago di Garda, located in the north of the country between the Alps and the Po River lowlands, leaves no romantic soul unstirred. Its shores boast luxurious accommodations in towns like Riva del Garda and Gardone Riviera, and amazing water sports experiences can be had on the surface. Circumnavigating the lake on a bicycle or enjoying a cruise in its water guarantees breathtaking vistas.
Another watery gem of Italy is Lake Como, the third largest in the country. It is known for its unique Y shape, and is surrounded by luxurious mountain ranges and stunning romantic villages along its shores. This place is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the country, as you are sure to find out when you visit the amazing town of Bellagio, overflowing with flowers.
If you think Provence is the most photogenic place in France, you might need to think again. If you head north to the Swiss border south of Geneva, you will find a stunning lake with an eponymous town, Annecy. The luxurious surrounding nature creates a dramatic backdrop for the 17 km long lake. It is a genuine paradise for those who like surfing, water-skiing and diving.
The norther country of Norway offers beautiful natural scenery practically everywhere. One of the natural treasures with a water surface is the Sognefjord Fjord, the longest in Norway and the second longest in the world. It offers incredible vistas and you won’t be able to help feeling like you’re on the cover of the prestigious National Geographic magazine.
The final place in our selection goes to the Lake District in Great Britain. Indeed, the area includes almost 60 lakes. We relied on the opinions of local inhabitants, who agree that the most beautiful of these is Wastwater Lake, which is also the most remote and therefore the most peaceful of them all. If you visit in autumn, you will be enchanted by the atmosphere of this luxurious place.
