Secret Lake Iseo

Italy's little-known lake
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • top-quality hotels, all with a pool
  • outstanding cuisine and interesting wines
  • undiscovered lake, a secret jewel
  • option to cycle through the vineyards on your last day

This popular, indulgent and very gastronomic holiday combines three top-quality hotels – including two which are among the very best of our selection – for a marvellous exploration of an area that is little-known beyond northern Italy and feels all the more special as a result. Set between the better-known lakes of Como and Garda, Iseo is the smallest of Lombardy's four major lakes, but is a true jewel, with imposing, angular mountains and deep gorges to the north and the delightful Franciacorta vineyards in the hills to the south.

With views of this beautiful lake on every walk, we were completely enchanted and just didn't want our wonderful holiday to end.

Grapes were first planted here in Roman times but the wines – the acclaimed sparkling whites, and the velvety reds – remain as great a secret as the region itself, serving as the perfect accompaniment to the refined cuisine of lake fish, delicious meats and distinctive local cheeses. While the two hotel-to-hotel routes are comparatively challenging, you can either enjoy leisurely circuits on the other days, or simply relax at the hotels.
