Boasting a phenomenal position moments from the indigo and turquoise waters of Lake Garda, Hotel Astoria is renowned for its comfort, stellar service and peaceful surroundings. Located in the stunning Campagnola area -which is known locally as 'surfers paradise'- you'll find yourself just 3 kilometres from the historical centre of Malcesine which can be reached both on foot, by bikes hired from the hotel or from the local tourist bus which stops just outside the hotel and operates hourly. 

The decor of the Astoria is simple yet beautifully traditional with spacious rooms many of which offer lake views over the Bay of Campagnola and modern amenities. There is a restaurant onsite in which a rich and varied continental breakfast with hot options is served each morning and a three course meal is provided each night. The culinary charm of this property is that the chefs pride themselves on using fresh and local ingredients each day with fish from the lake, vegetables and olive oil from the local groves. There is a gorgeous terrace with panoramic views of the lake where you can have an evening aperitif as the sun sets over the lake. 

With regards to getting out and about, the Monte Baldo cable car is just a mile away and the local ferry port is located in the centre of Malcesine just next to the castle, 40 minutes walk from the Astoria. 

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by coach.
