Castello Oldofredi, Monte Isola

A hotel that works as well for families as couples is a rare find but Castello Oldofredi seems to have achieved just that and the option of apartment accommodation means that the majority of guests during the peak summer months are families.

The 15th century restored mansion has retained many of its original features and frescoes but blended them with contemporary furniture and fittings. Its unique location in a small fishing village on the pretty car-free Monte Isola in the middle of Lake Iseo gives it a delightful sense of escapism but there are plenty of places to explore on the island, local restaurants and a regular ferry service over to the mainland.

There are five double en suite (with shower) bedrooms situated in the original mansion with views across the lake and the surrounding mountains. Each is individually styled, with original features that include wooden ceiling beams and beautiful stone fireplaces. The apartments (one or two bedroom) have a living room with a kitchenette and all have their own private outdoor space, with garden or lake and mountain views.

Set amongst olive groves and with extraordinary lake views, the gardens have a small pool. Yoga lessons, cookery courses and hiking and cycling excursions are all offered.

The restaurant has a large terrace that allows you to drink in the view over an early evening aperitif or candlelit dinner. Buffet breakfast is served on the terrace during the warmer months and, at other times, in the vaulted dining room.


Location

One of the most charming aspects of the hotel is its unique location. Monte Isola is a car-free island in the middle of Lake Iseo, one of Lombardy’s smaller lakes, to the west of Lake Garda and just over 50km from Bergamo. A regular ferry runs from Peschiera Maraglio to Sulzano (5 minutes ride, every 15 minutes) on the mainland 24h a day

The small fishing village and harbour of Peschiera Maraglio is a just a short stroll from the hotel, and other villages, with restaurants, are close by. The island is encircled by a promenade and is best explored on two wheels. The hotel offers the option of excursions by bike or on foot.
