Untouched nature, small bathing bays and picturesque places: Lake Iseo is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in northern Italy. Less sophisticated than Lake Como and less crowded than Lake Garda, Lake Iseo is an insider tip among holidaymakers in Italy. Lake Iseo is the fourth largest lake in Italy after Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore and Lake Como. While the other three lakes have become sought-after holiday areas for domestic and foreign tourists, Lake Iseo has been able to retain its original charm and unspoiled landscapes. You won't find big chain hotels, nightclubs or malls here. Lake Iseo attracts water sports enthusiasts with favorable winds, vast nature reserves and culinary specialities.Hillside apartments Apartments in the village
One of the highlights of Lake Iseo is the island of Monte Isola. The up to 400 meters high pedestrian island is the largest inland island in southern Europe. It can be reached by ferry from various locations on Lake Iseo. There are nine small towns on the island, of which Peschiera Maraglio is the most visited. On the top of the island stands out the white sanctuary built, in ancient times, on the remains of a pagan building. The capital, Siviano, preserves medieval traces in the stone walls, in the very narrow alleys and in the Martinengo tower. The small village of Carzano retains its characteristics linked to water. It hosts, every five years, the feast of Santa Croce, which sees it, together with the historical nucleus of Novale, entirely decorated with thousands of paper flowers. In 2016, the island was the subject of one of the famous works of Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Floating Piers.Hillside apartments Apartments in the village
The "Orrido del Bogn" is an inlet of breathtaking beauty that represents one of the most attractive natural surprises of Lake Iseo, with overhanging rocks and crystal clear waters that bathe a small pebble beach. It can be reached from the town of Riva di Solto by walking towards Lovere along the recently built suggestive promenade. The coastal road overlooking the lake also starts from the Bogn, entirely carved into the rock and passable by car towards the village of Castro, which offers particularly exciting views and landscapes.Hillside apartments Apartments in the village
The "Corna Trentapassi" is a wonderful balcony overlooking Lake Iseo. The western slope falls almost overhanging the lake with very steep grassy ridges, while the northern slope has a ridge that leads from the steep meadows of the western slope to the real peak at an altitude of 1248 metres. A short aided path has been set up along the summit ridge which will offer exciting panoramas.Hillside apartments Apartments in the village
Ancient buildings overlooking the waters of Lake Iseo, a relaxing and peaceful environment and breathtaking views... this is what a holiday stay in Riva di Solto offers you. Riva di Solto is one of the best preserved medieval villages on Lake Iseo, a real pearl! The small village of Riva di Solto develops along the length, for the most part, of the waters of Lake Iseo. Once this was a fortified port, mainly inhabited by fishermen who went out to sea every day with their fishing boats. Today it is still possible to savor the medieval past of this village. Just cross the arcades overlooking the main street of the town to enter dark and ancient alleys where time seems to have stopped.Hillside apartments Apartments in the village
