Lake Garda Italy
Call for availability
In October the heaving crowds have departed the shores of Lake Garda, yet its beauty is undiminished. Crystal-clear waters sparkle in the autumn sun, shimmering reflections of Alpine peaks. Elegant resort towns with promenades and grand hotels – evoking a more relaxed and refined age of travel – fringe the lake. What better setting for a bridge holiday?
The 4*+ Hotel Caesius Thermae & Spa Resort is our Lake Garda hideaway. Rooms are air-conditioned with terrace or balcony and en-suite bathroom, satellite TV and tea/coffee-making facilities. At the spa, relaxing and revitalising treatments are centred around health-giving thermal waters. Our half-board arrangement is based on meals at the main Benacus restaurant, serving up delicious dishes inspired by regional traditions and the finest local produce.
With two included drinks parties, the group will soon get to know each other. Bridge, played in large air-conditioned rooms, fits around the excursions to maximise your enjoyment. Bernard Magee will present two seminars, followed by supervised play of set hands, with valuable support offered by the Mr Bridge team. Singles will always be accommodated.
