My favourite way to spend a warm sunny day in the Alps has to be drink in hand, lying by a stunning lake with a good book. Whilst this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, a lake holiday in the Alps has plenty to offer for everyone. Whether you are into your water sports, fishing, swimming, or simply enjoy the views, a summer holiday in the Alps is not complete without a visit to a beautiful local lake.
