Our sailing centre
Our sailing centre offers a wide range of water-sports equipment in the grounds of the newly built Malcesine Sailing Centre (Fraglia Vela Malcesine) with restaurant, changing rooms, showers, toilets, parking, marina and beaches. We have beginner and expert equipment for training and for rental and our location on the lakeside means easy access for everyone and the opportunity to watch before you try. The cycle path that runs from 5km North of us to the south side of Malcesine means an easy walk or cycle to other villages or to the town of Malcesine. Have a look at the location on Google Maps or see our siteplan on our dinghy sailing courses page, windsurfing courses page or catamaran sailing courses page.
Plenty to do and see around Malcesine, Lake Garda
Lake Garda is a fresh water lake 50km long and 30km wide at its south end. Malcesine, the base for Europa Holidays is a largely unspoilt town with many tourist attractions and Lake Garda is a clean, safe, fresh water paradise for all activity sports and relaxing holidays. The lake (it feels like a sea on the windiest of days) is 5km wide at our sailing centre with many protected bays and places to explore. There’s so much more to do than at so many Mediterranean sailing centres with one bar and no town.
We have new boards and sails from Starboard and Severne every year for windsurfers and Topper dinghies and catamarans for boat sailors.
We make use of the stunning surrounding scenery, the regular winds, the warm water of the Lake and the close proximity of so many attractions and things to see and do to offer a flexible and attractive holiday for all members of a group or family. It is augmented by the well-known hospitality and child friendliness of Italian hoteliers and restaurant owners, the relaxed atmosphere of the medieval town of Malcesine and the wonderful Italian culture.
Small location but large service
We hope to welcome you to our friendly, family-run centre here on the lake where we can share with you our twenty years of experience in this area, guide you to the best restaurants and advise you on food, wine, shopping and any other activities you may wish to try whilst here on holiday. Ciao e grazie
