Sailing and windsurfing holidays

Activity holidays or just a base to explore from

Whether you want a formal week’s RYA sailing / windsurfing course, access to a superb range of watersports equipment or just a base from which to experience and explore this wonderful region of Italy, Malcesine and Europa Holidays are the team for you. With our unrivalled range of sailing dinghies and our RYA recognition we are the ideal place for families where some or all of its members want to mix sailing with other activities.

The cycle path that runs from 3km North of us to the south side of Malcesine means an easy walk or cycle to other villages or to the town of Malcesine.

From the adrenalin rush of canyoning to the modern adventure parks, via the traditional activities of trekking and biking, this area has it all and we can arrange it for you.

Our sailing centre

As an RYA centre on Lake Garda, we provide first class tuition on well maintained teaching kit in clean and friendly waters for those who are new to watersports and for those who wish to improve.

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.

 

Plenty to do and see around Malcesine, Lake Garda

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 that have just one bar and no town.

Navene

Our base at Navene, near Malcesine, is situated in the foothills of the Dolomites with easy access from the airports of Verona (Villafranca), Venice (Treviso and Marco Polo) serviced by BA, Thomsonfly, Ryan Air, Easy Jet and other carriers. Lake Garda is the ideal place to enjoy a fantastic sailing/windsurfing holiday with much more. The cities of Milan, Verona, Venice, Mantua and Padua are all within easy reach. 

The Opera season in the amphitheatre of Verona runs from June through to early September and we can easily arrange tickets in advance should you wish to attend one of these unique performances. Lake Garda is situated in the midst of the Alto Adige white wine region to the north and the full bodied red region of Valpolicella to the south.

History

Europa Holidays started bringing people to Lake Garda 1n 1993. Alison and I, after extensive experience in the windsurfing, sailing and mountain bike business in the UK, decided to change lifestyle and location and settle on the shore of Lago di Garda in Northern Italy.

We were thrilled to find the ideal location for a windsurfing and sailing school at the Malcesine Sailing Centre. Its a perfect location at the hamlet of Navene, blessed with fantastic facilities and cross shore thermal winds, morning and afternoon.

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
