A lively town renowned for mountain biking, windsurfing and sailing, Torbole is an ideal destination whether you want an active holiday or just a quiet place to relax and take in the scenery.
The town has impressive old buildings, well-kept beaches, mountains and walking trails. Enjoying a privileged location between the north-west slopes of Mount Baldo and the mouth of the Sarca river, Torbole is connected with Riva by a picturesque walk along the lake shore. It has a wide promenade, quaint shops and lovely open-air cafés and restaurants and it offers easy access to other lakeside resorts such as Limone or Malcesine, using the public ferryboat.
You can hire a bike and explore the surroundings at your leisure, or take a cable car to the summit of the magnificent Monte Baldo mountain nearby and soak up some truly breathtaking views over the Italian alps. And if you feel like venturing further afield, the classic cities of Venice, Verona and Brescia are within easy reach. In the evenings you can enjoy fresh seafood and classic Italian dishes in a choice of fine restaurants and pizzerias, where local wines are in abundance. Round off the evening at an ice cream parlour, stroll along the promenade, or enjoy a drink by the lake and watch the sun set over Lake Garda.
Torbole is also renowned as one of the best watersports sites in Europe. Whether you enjoy sailing, windsurfing or any other kind of water-based activity, we have got an action-packed holiday for you! However, while it is a haven for watersports, you do not have to go near a jetski or surfboard to admire the stunning scenery and enjoy a thoroughly relaxing holiday. Whether you come for the watersports or the sights, Torbole is sure to leave you with wonderful memories of your holiday on Lake Garda.
Situated on the hills above Torbole sits Nago. The parish church of Nago, San Vigilio, is located on the town's main road. The present building dates from the late 16th century, but the first church probably dates from the early Christian period. It is mentioned for the first time in 1203, in a document relating to a dispute between the people of Nago and the Bishop of Trento, Conrad II de Beseno. It is called "collegiate" in the document and its importance at the time must have been considerable.
Ulf moved to Italy in 2011 and thoroughly enjoys his role as a resort manager in Peschiera. The most rewarding part of the job for Ulf is when people speak to him at the end of their holiday and thank him for helping to make their holiday so special, Ulf says "that means the world to me". Ulf goes on to say it’s the little extras that help people enjoy their holidays such as telling them to drop into "Torta della nonna" for an Italian pastry, it’s a must." His key tip for holidays in Lake Garda is to try and see as many of the towns and villages as possible as each one exudes a unique atmosphere.

During her days off in the summer you will find her on Torbole beach, wind-surfing or paddle boarding.

For Gina the highlight of her job is the people that she meets each week. They ensure that the job as a resort manager is always interesting.

As one of Topflight’s newest resort managers Debbie has enjoyed the lifestyle on Lake Garda for 5 years. Living in Malcesine she looks after the resorts of Malcesine, Riva and Torbole. She says "although I love all 3 resorts my heart lies in Malcesine. There are many little spots which I love - the views from the restaurants at 'Porto Vecchio' and the quaintness of the little Piazza Cavour. There's a little grassy area called Lido Sopri which is great for sunbathing and a dip in the lake with that view - perfect!" Her all-time favourite excursion is Bolzano and Renon and she says her guests who take this excursion "finish their holiday with a big smile"
