What you need to know before your trail

Bestselling Brianna Middleton has won the hearts of millions of readers with her sweeping – and steamy – love stories. But the girl behind the typewriter is struggling… Not only does she have writer’s block, but she’s a world-famous romance author with zero romance in her own life.

So the opportunity to spend the summer teaching at a writer’s retreat in an idyllic villa on the shores of Lake Garda – owned by superstar author Arran Jamieson – could this be just the thing to fire up Brie’s writing – and romantic – mojo?

Travel Guide

Travel to Lake Garda for a Summer on the Italian Lakes

Lake Garda

The novel takes place in a writing retreat on the banks of Lake Garda…

“Lake Garda is indescribably beautiful and I know that even a photograph wouldn’t quite do it justice. The distance and depth of the scene in front of me makes me feel like a dot on the landscape.”

“The bonus of a village set up here in the wooded hills is the panoramic view and Arran’s description of the shapes of the immense lake springs to mind. It is indeed long as it stretches out ahead of me and looking down over the wall as the hill falls away, the lake widens considerably into something that does ressemble an an ancient axe head.”


The writing retreat

Set in a lovely sounding place called Villa Monteverdi  and there’s dinner in the local restaurant , La Pergola. Spending time in such lucious surroundings with gorgeous scenery is bound to get those creative juices flowing!
