Famous for the breathtaking car chase in the opening scenes of James Bond’s Quantum of Solace, Lake Garda is a stunning location for a tennis holiday.

But you don’t need to be a secret agent to enjoy the delights of Lake Garda, and unlike 007, you will hopefully have a less eventful journey to the resort, which is only 25 minutes from Verona airport. 

On arrival you’ll be greeted by a beautiful four-star resort surrounded by vineyards, rolling hills and stunning views of the lake to the west.

A brand new venue for Jonathan Markson Tennis in 2016, with a choice of four-star hotel with pool and spa or apartments, this is an ideal venue for couples, families and large groups.

Set in the heart of northern Italy between Milan and Venice, Lake Garda is a popular holiday for location for Italians and tourists alike. If you don’t want to spend your whole holiday on the court, there are plenty of other activities to keep you occupied, from golf and windsurfing to day trips to the surrounding area.

Submerge in the renowned hot spring water parks, visit the famous Verona opera, taste wine in Bardolino or take the kids to Gardaland theme park – there’s no danger of getting bored.

But back to the tennis – with resident coach Fabio, a former Italian junior No.1, offering up to 15 hours of tennis coaching on the hotel’s six stunning clay courts, there’s every chance you’ll come home with a honed technique, and perhaps even a little Italian flair to your game.

Prices start from £530 per person based on two people sharing for a week with up to 15 hours of tennis coaching included. For more information visit
