Hotel Iseolago is the ultimate tranquil retreat. It’s surrounded by beautiful gardens and only one kilometre from Lake Iseo. You can reach the lake by a private pathway that leads straight there from the hotel’s ground. The hotel has been renovated in recent years and is known for its relaxed and informal atmosphere. Expect a classic interior with flecks of gold and marble throughout the sprawling hallways and comfy rooms.
There are three pools to choose from here, including a little one for children. You’ll also have free entry into the nearby Sassabanek Lido (open mid May to mid September) when you stay here. It has three pools, a private beach and water sports, as well as a bar and restaurant. When you’re ready to indulge, the hotel's modern spa has lots of treatments on the menu (treatments are payable locally but entry to the spa is free).
We absolutely love the Iseolago’s a la carte restaurant. They serve lots of tasty local dishes including fish caught from the lake – best enjoyed with a chilled glass of local Franciacorta wine.
When it comes to exploring the area, the stunning Torbiere Nature Reserve is just 200 metres away and has over 3 square kilometres of natural clay ponds, wild flower fields and vast wildlife to discover. The town of Iseo is around a 15-minute walk away and is rich with character - browse the boutique shops or stop in a local restaurant. There's and some fantastic walks from here too, including the local Via Valeriana - one of the oldest and most picturesque walks in the region. The hotel shuttle runs regularly to the centre of Iseo if you don't fancy the walk back (payable locally).
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 15 mins by coach from Verona airport.
