A vacation guide to Lake Idro in the Sabbia Valley

Lago d'Idro is perhaps the downright prettiest of the minor Italian lakes, a mere slip of a pond—not quite six miles long and just over a mile wide, nestled into into the Valle Sabbia—just west of Lake Garda.

Lake Idro is renowned for its trout, sailing and kiteboarding, sheer beauty, and in winter the fine skiing in the surrounding mountains.

Most of the hotels and services (most of which require at least a two- or three-night minimum stay) are at the south end of the lake in the contiguous villages of Crone and Idro.

The town of Anfo halfway up the western shore sports a 16th century castle and church of Sant'Antonio with 15th century frescoes.

And that's about it for sleepy little Idro!
