October at Lake Garda. The perfect holiday

Somebody says that the best holidays are in August and that in October it is too late to head to a Mediterranean resort like Lake Garda.

Are they right? Of course not!

Lake Garda is amazing all year round. Here, the climate is mild and sunny from April to October. Furthermore, there are incredible places to visit, heavenly beaches, good food and welcoming people anywhere you will go.

There are many good reasons to visit Lake Garda in October. We will give you five to get you into a holiday mood and leave right now!

1 – Mediterranean climate in autumn

September and October temperatures are fantastic – still warm and sunny, but no more heat like in July and August. You will enjoy a very agreeable climate.

The average temperature in September is about 25° while in October it is around 20°. Watch our webcam in Torbole sul Garda (LINK) to see how the weather will be like in October.

2 – Perfect for families and couples

Beaches like the ones in Torbole and Riva del Garda, the village, the tourist points of interest… in October, these places are less crowded. Families with children can have fun at the beaches even more and couples can enjoy romantic sunsets, get relaxed at the SPA and have a drink or a candlelight dinner at the lake.

3 – The Parking

Parking… a real dilemma in summer! While in August to find a free parking spot near the tourist points of interest is almost impossible, in October it is not. Furthermore, at our Residence Toblini you will always find a parking spot for you, in summer too! And, if you want, you can leave your car and walk: the old centre and the beaches are at a very short walking distance!

4- Restaurants

Dining out without reserving your table will be possible again. You will enjoy a relaxing dinner and stay there as much as you want to taste delicious local products. In October “pure relax” will be your watchword!

In addition, in October they organize a lot of festivals and village fêtes all around Lake Garda where you can taste typical products and drink good wine!

5- Uncrowded bike and trekking routes

That’s it! In October, all bike and trekking routes at Lake Garda will surprise you: no more crowd, no more heat. And, when you are back, you can dive into the indoor swimming pool of Residence Toblini in Torbole sul Garda, one of the few accommodation facilities with indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, parking spots and bike and sports equipment storage room!

And Casa al Lago? Do you prefer to wake up directly on the beach? At Casa al Lago you will! The dawn and twilight over the lake will be your exclusive show. And, our guests staying at Casa al Lago will benefit from the swimming pools and the large garden of Residence Toblini for free.

October is the new August. Maybe. Well, book now and find it out.

Ponale, the road of marvels

The Road of Ponale between Riva del Garda and Valle di Ledro is on the northern side of Lake Garda, in Trentino.

Undoubtedly, Ponale is the most famous and popular route of Lake Garda – perched over the lake, this panoramic route is a wealth of history.

The contour of the old road of Ponale can be easily seen from the beach of Riva and from Torbole.

In the past, this road was the only one to connect Alto Garda to Valle di Ledro. Along the route, you can still see the signs of the passage of carts and donkey’s hooves.

And, between the second and the third tunnel, you can see the ruins of Tagliata del Ponale, a huge fortification the Austrians built from 1860. The tunnels and foxholes carved in the rock were then used during the World War I.

Today, trekkers and mountain bikers love taking pictures along the Road of Ponale, the most popular, the most appreciated route you can experience!

Ponale after the re-opening

Let’s go and live Ponale! The Road will officially re-open on April 12, 2019.

Have you already decided to cover it by your Mtb or are you going for a trek? Whatever you will do, our tip is to leave early in the morning – most of all if you plan to come in summer – from Torbole to enjoy the stunning beauty of Lake Garda. Get dressed adequately and bring some food and drinks with you. Don’t forget some bottles of water, you will need it until you reach the Bar/Ristorante Belvedere Ponale Alto).

You will take dozens of pictures to such a marvel while reaching the Waterfall of Ponale. There, have a break and a cup of coffee on the panoramic terrace of the café, then you can come back or keep on walking towards Valle di Ledro and its wonderful lake.

Your wayback to Torbole

If you are riding your Mtb, pay attention to the steep downhill! If you walking, pay attention to the bikers who are riding downhill. The less fatiguing route will let you fully enjoy the natural beauty around you. If you are with your partner, what about stopping and taking a picture – and giving him/her a kiss – at Belvedere degli Innamorati (the lover’s panoramic viewpoint)? They reported that, in 1852, the Austria emperor Austria Franz Joseph wanted his bodyguards to cover an unplanned route. They dedicated it to lovers because it is one of the most romantic and immortal places of the world!

When you come back after the efforts and your eyes full of beauties, nothing is better than the swimming pool of your Residence Toblini. In our green garden, our large outdoor swimming pool – we have an indoor one, maybe after a sauna – is the best solution to stretch your muscles. Afterwards, come and have a drink or something typical to eat in our café. In love with Lake Garda, with Ponale and with yourself. You deserved a top-level holiday like that! Book it, click here.
