About the location
Set on the dramatic southern shore of Lake Iseo, Iseo is one of the Italian Lakes’ best-kept secrets. It's seen far less fame than towns on the larger lakes, making it a great option for an authentic Italian escape.
Set beneath forest-cloaked hills, Iseo is still a relatively small town with an atmospheric historic centre and a pretty harbour close by. At the heart of the town is the Garibaldi Square, a bustling piazza ringed by cafes and town houses. Duck down the side streets to seek out cosy restaurants and craft shops, and make sure you check out the local market – held each Friday in the square. There are plenty of dining options in Iseo, too, including lake-view restaurants and traditional gelaterie.
When it comes to exploring further afield, Iseo is only a short drive from Brescia, one of the region’s most beautiful cities. Bergamo is also within easy reach.
The hotel is 1 hour 5 minutes from Verona airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

The hotel is RIGHT on the water, and we had a great view of the lake. Comfortable room, although it was still kind of warm out and - like a lot of other places in Europe - they had already turned the air conditioning system off. Modern. Comfortable public spaces. Nice bar. Great restaurant next door with an incredible breakfast.

Wife and I have stayed two nights, eaten the included brkfst and one evening meal at the restaurant. The brkfst sis very complete with protein, starch and fruit to choose from. For dinner we each had sea bass which was superbly presented and tasted as good as it looked.
We had a lakeside room on second floor. Would recommend this location to others
