Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Bergamo

lake view,three bedrooms, two bathrooms, garden, barbecue, quiet area

Our house dates back to the beginning of 1600, but don't panic, it was completely restored four years ago. It is on three floors:

- at the ground floor there is the kitchen which opens on a small lovely garden. There is a porch with a table for eating outside with lake view;

- at the first floor there is a bedroom and a bathroom;

- at the second floor there is the master bedroom, another small bedroom (bunk bed) and the bathroom.

For relaxing outside, we have a hammock, deck chairs and barbecue. And the view on the lake and the mountains, of course.

Important: the house is in the historcal centre of the village and it has no direct access by car. There is plenty of parking places nearby, all free of charges. You will have to walk 150-200 metres from the parking.

The house is in a sunny position, central in the village and quiet.

In few minutes you can reach Lovere (included in ' I borghi più belli d'Italia' Italy's most beautiful small villages www.borghitalia.it) and Sarnico, or Bergamo and Brescia.

In one hour and a half you are in Milan, and in three in Venice. Orio al Serio airport, Italy's most important low-cost airport, is only 26 km away. The motorway is also 30 minutes away.

In the Iseo Lake there is Montisola, which is the biggest lake island in Europe. In Montisola cars are not allowed (there is only a mini bus) but you can hire bicycles there. Ferry is 7 km from Fonteno.

Try a one-day or one-night cruise on the lake with dinner and music!

In Lovere there is a windsurf and sailing school and it is possible to hire the things for windsurfing.

In Fonteno there are two bar, two small food shops, the post office, three playgounds for children, two hotels/restaurants and two agriturismo (rural restaurants in farms); on the whole territory there is plenty of restaurants.

Fonteno is a great place for hiking. Directly from the door you will be able to follow the many paths which will take you to our mountains with great views on the lake.

We are near several touristic places:

Lago Iseo 5 min,

Lago Endine 5 min,

Franciacorta (world famous wine district),

Valcalepio (wine district),

Lovere 15 min,

Sarnico 20 min,

Iseo

Bergamo

Milan

Venice

Mountain and skying facilities from 40 min.

Verona

Garda Lake

Montisola.

'The secret lake' is a definition of a previous guest, that perfectly fits to Iseo Lake.

Being overlooked by its most famous 'cousins' Como and Garda Lake, our lake remains mainly unknown even to italian mass tourism which prefers to head to Garda.

The advantage is that the area is still unspoilt and that the touristic offer is not made 'only' for tourists, but for locals as well. We have so many beautiful places here that you will be surprised how such a gem can still be hidden from traditional touristic routes.

Fonteno is located on the hills above Iseo Lake (northern Italy) in the Lake District in Lombardy, near Bergamo, Milan, Brescia and Orio al Serio, Italy's most important low-cost airport.

'The secret lake' is a definition of a previous guest, that perfectly fits to Iseo Lake.

Being overlooked by its most famous 'cousins' Como and Garda Lake, our lake remains mainly unknown even to italian mass tourism which prefers to head to Garda. The advantage is that the area is still unspoilt and that the touristic offer is not made 'only' for tourists, but for locals as well. We have so many beautiful places here that you will be surprised how such a gem can still be hidden from traditional touristic routes.

Fonteno is located on the hills above Iseo Lake, in Lombardy, a few kilometers away from the main low-cost airport in Italy, Milan Orio al Serio.

It 'a small village and it is called' the lake balcony 'as it offers spectacular and unforgettable views on Lake Iseo. The village is quiet and away from mass tourism, is ideally situated being exactly halfway between Lake Iseo and Lake Endine. On both lakes you will find tourist activities, clubs, restaurants, cafès, you can go fishing, windsurfing, sailing or relax on the small beaches. In the middle of Iseo Lake there is Montisola, or Monte Isola, the biggest island in a lake in Europe, a pearl unknown to many but not to be missed: in its streets without traffic (cars are not allowed, there is just a mini-bus) you can get lost in fishing villages, breath the scent of the lake and eat in the many fish taverns. Why not also try a mini cruise? The consortium of navigation on Lake Iseo has several very interesting proposals, such as day cruises with or without guided tours or romantic evening cruises with dinner on board and music. The ferry leaves at 6 km from our house. A Lovere there is a windsurfing and sailing school and a large swimming pool. The town of Lovere is listed into the most beautiful villages in Italy. From December to March you can ski in the nearby district of Montecampione, 30 km from here. A Fonteno there are two cafès, two restaurants, three playgrounds, two agriturismo (rural restaurants in farms), a post office, two grocery stores.
