Lake Garda is just 20 kilometers away and Lago di Iseo’s crystal clear waters are even closer – it’s also smaller, less touristy and just as lovely. Take a boat tour, zip around it on a bike – there are lots of good routes – or eat fresh fish at one of the lakeside cafes.
You’ll feel relaxed here – Anna and Filippo live next door and the house is filled with their elegant furniture and paintings. There’s a huge veranda for a quiet sit in the sun and a fire indoors for chillier days.
Walk into the village for basic supplies, a gelato or takeaway pizza then head back for a swim in the pool and a wander around the amazing garden – they have over 300 species of plants and flowers.
