Shed some Christmas pounds on an Italian spa break

Tuesday, 21 December 2010 5:53 PM

It’s hard to avoid filling out a bit over Christmas, with festive treats leading to the average Brit putting on half a stone of weight. If you’re looking to reverse the process in the New Year, then you take a relaxing spa break to Lake Garda in Italy.

Lefay Resort and Spa, which overlooks this scenic Alpine lake, offers a special four-night Remise en Forme package to help you get back into great shape in the New Year.

Guests begin their break with an initial energy consultation that leads to a tailor-made programme featuring a combination of massages, gymnastics, energy treatments and phytotherapy.

Relax with lake-side spa treatments or a few minutes in any of the resort’s five different types of sauna. If you fancy a refreshing dip, there are also indoor and outdoor swimming pools to choose from.

The Remise en Forme programme costs from £1,265 per person for a four night stay including full-board accommodation. Furthermore, cheap flights are available to nearby Brescia for just £12 each way with Ryanair.
