Boasting a phenomenal position just moments from Lake Garda, Hotel Astoria is renowned for its comfort, service and peaceful surroundings. Located in the stunning Campagnola area - known locally as 'surfers paradise'- you'll find yourself just three kilometres from the historic 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 (payable locally, approx. €1.20). 

The decor of the Astoria is simple and traditional with spacious rooms that face towards the lake or towards the peaceful hotel gardens and pool. The chefs at the hotel's restaurant 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. 

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by coach from Verona airport.
