Set amongst wonderful gardens just one kilometre from the Lake Iseo, Hotel Iseolago provides the ultimate tranquil retreat. This elegant property has been renovated in recent years and is known for its relaxed and informal atmosphere. The interior is classic with flecks of gold and marble scattered throughout the sprawling hallways and comfortable rooms. Situated in the glorious gardens are three swimming pools, including a small dip pool for children. For those wanting to swim in the lake itself, its just a leisurely stroll away through a private pathway on the hotel grounds.
A superb a la carte restaurant offers a refined menu with local dishes including fish caught from the lake that can be enjoyed with a chilled glass of franciacorta. After, head to the bar for a relaxed drink or after-dinner snack. For a relaxing day, take advantage of the free entry into the nearby Sassabanek Lido (open mid May to mid September) that boasts three pools, a private beach and watersports as well as a bar and restaurant. Those who truly want to indulge will love the hotel's contemporary spa where a plethora of treatments are available (treatments are payable locally but entry to the spa is free).
When it comes to exploring the area, the stunning Torbiere Nature Reserve is just 200 metres away and offers you over 300 hectares of natural clay ponds, red beds, wild flower fields and vast wildlife to discover at your own pace. The town of Iseo is around a 15-minute walk away and is rich with character, boasting boutique shops, fine restaurants and some fantastic walks including the local Via Valeriana - one of the oldest and most picturesque walks of the region. The hotel shuttle runs regularly to the centre of Iseo (payable locally).
