As summers in the Mediterranean get hotter, more of us are turning to Europe’s beautiful lakes and mountains for a cooler alternative. Whether it’s soaking up the glamour of the Italian lakes, hiking through flower-filled meadows in the Austrian Tyrol or hurtling down a black run on a mountain bike in the French Alps, we’d love to hear about your favourite summer holidays on the lakes and mountains of Europe.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.

The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Coolstays property – the company has more than 3,000 worldwide. The best tips will appear in the Guardian Travel section and website.
