              In nearby towns in northern Italy and Switzerland there are Christmas markets - and for something special take a day trip to Switzerland’s Montreux where you can take a cogwheel train up the snowy alps to visit Santa Claus.

              Being so close to Switzerland and the Italian Alps, skiing is an easy option in winter, as is cycling and hiking at lower altitudes.

              You can enjoy skiing in the Valtellina at the wonderful village of Madesimo; visit Bormia and enjoy their 50 km of ski slopes or take a trip on a dog led sledge; ski the family resort of Chiesa Valmalenco or the wonderful slopes of Livigno. Skiing Switzerland is also an easy option, with San Bernadino just over an hour away and St Moritz a little further.

              Spring is a true delight as the lake blooms with the warmer weather, the gardens are spectacular and hiking in the nearby valleys and alps is a pure pleasure!

              So to inspire you in your holiday planning..here’s some things to do:

              Hop on a ferry and visit a villa and
