Overview

About the property

We can host up to 6 guests.

The apartment features:

- 2 bedrooms: one with a brand-new high quality double sofa bed and the other with a queen size bed, both rooms have windows with partial lake view.

- a bathroom which is equipped with bath-tub/power shower

- an open plan lounge with fireplace and high quality furniture

High quality furniture and amenities are shown in the listing pictures.

Also Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.

Guest Access

There are two parking space: one inside the property (gated) and one outside.

The spacious garden features a solarium area and a BBQ corner with garden table and chairs.

Some of the appliances present in the apartment are: flat-screen TV, CD player, microwave oven, gas hob, wash-machine, iron, electric oven, food mixer and Italian coffee maker.

There is a laundry room with wash-machine, clothes hanger, iron and iron-board located on the ground floor. Purely for safety, access to this area needs to be asked to Salvo (my dad).

Interaction with Guests

Salvo, although living on the same premises in a completely independent apartment(at the back of the property), shares with you the entrance gate, and assures you complete privacy.

He will be there to welcome you and he is looking forward to share some tips with you about the lake and the area.

There is a dog living on the property, but Luna will never cross to your side of the garden as she lives on my dad side and she has her dedicated space.

The Neighbourhood

Paratico is a medieval town surrounded by the vineyards of the Franciacorta. The microclimate created by the lake and the limestone soil makes Franciacorta a great place to produce “BOLLICINE” (literally… bubbles).

Several wine-cellars, proud of their award winning products, welcome guest for a tour of their vineyard and a taste of their products. (Please check the availability on websites or call the wine-producer to book a visit).

The Iseo lake offers a wide range of activities, if you like to stay local: a boat trip to Monte Isola or a visit to the national park of Torbiere, hiking tracks, canoeing, windsurfing, rock-climbing, prehistoric park 'I CAMUNI' and the water park “Aqua Splash” for those hot days of summer.

All these details have been included in our Guidebook.

Hey... we are father and son - I am Luca (on the left), originally Italian and I have been living in UK for many moons :o)

I like to travel, bit of a stereotype on this web site...

Perfect apartment, great location, delightful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Paratico is a charming, authentic little Italian town so if that is what you like then this place is for you. The first floor apartment is very large, well laid out, fully equipped and nicely decorated with several personal touches. Although there were only two of us it would easily accommodate a larger family as the rooms were vast and airy. The owner lives downstairs at the back of the house but you feel as if you have the whole place to yourself. However, it works well having the owner on site and any language barriers are easily overcome. The apartment is on a hill which affords great views of the lake and the town. It’s a short, steep descent to the lake, approximately 5 minutes walking, where you’ll find the bars and restaurants of Paratico. A further 2 minute stroll across the bridge takes you to the delights of Sarnico. However, remember it will be a steep walk back to the apartment. If you have a car it is very easy to travel to Lake Garda, Lake Como, Verona, Venice and Milan. We will definitely return. Molte grazie Salvo e Luca e non dimenticare il cane Luna.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

For the 4th year running I have returned to this house in Italy. The atmosphere in the area is amazing. The house is spacious and comfortable, and equipped with everything one might need. There are supermarkets and great restaurants around town, which is very charming and typical of northern Italy - think narrow streets, classical architecture, great weather and the best food you can find. From the main bedroom the view of the lake is beautiful, and the neighbourhood is very calm and safe. Definitely recommend and am going back at some point again!

Superb

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and spacious accomodation, especially the bathroom stands out. Charming host who will make you feel welcome and at home.

Location of the house is a definitive plus: in a quiet neighbourhood but at easy walking distance from lively Paratico, Sarnico and the lake.

Difficult to mention points for improvement, but if we must: it would have been nice to have some international TV channels, such as Eurosport.

We had a superb stay.
