Lazing lakeside on the shores of these gently lapping natural pools, surrounded by mountain-swept vistas and lush meadows, is no ordinary countryside holiday escape. These sunshine gilded chillax spots of natural cool look as good in autumnal russet red as they do in the summer's vivid verdant green - a retreat fit for some serious you-time.
These boutique hotel abodes range from the ultra-luxe glam to designer, hand-crafted style dens, to spots where farm-to-table is as natural as going for a morning dip and where you can paddleboard as easily as treat yourself to the spa - this is lakeside living made easy.
Browse our Lakeside Edit awash in cerulean blues, cloud-like whites and tonal watercolour greens, each a countryside canvas of freshwater cool – no salt added. This is all about H20-yes please, with possibly some gin, bubbles and a wedge of lime on the side.
