Properties in Trentino
It sits on the Austrian border and the population of Bolzano, one of its two regions, is two-thirds German stock. The region’s cultural mix gives it a unique character, especially in its cuisine, and bratwurst is just as likely to be on the menu as spaghetti. Its location in the Alps and its several winter sports resorts – many high enough for summer skiing - make it especially popular with Italians, three million of whom holiday here each year.
Trentino-Alto Adige also has nearly 300 lakes, including Lake Garda, and in summer their beaches are a magnet for hordes of swimmers and sunbathers. The warmer months also attract hikers through the woodlands that teem with ibex, marmots and eagles and account for nearly half of the region.
