Villa 'Le Fontanelle': a lovely lake view from a hill of Franciacorta
average rating of 4.857143 based on 7 reviews

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Nadia and Andrea's villa near the Iseo lake. They are by the way both very friendly and helpful. Most of the week we were two families in the house, and with 4 double bedrooms and plenty of space that's no problem at all. The surroundings and the view is great, and compared to other houses, that we have rented over the years, this offers great value. Since they only plan to let this out for 1 or 2 years more, don't miss the opportunity for a restful and sconic getaway in Iseo. Many rgds from the whole family. Carl

Great villa in lovely location

  • 4 of 5

This villa has plenty of room for two families and is in a quiet location in the hills overlooking Lake Iseo in the distance. I would probably have given it five stars if the description at the time of booking hadn't said air conditioning was present in the bedrooms when in reality there were just three fans provided for four bedrooms. The owners, Nadia & Andrea, were really lovely though and brought a fourth fan for us when we asked. I am pleased to see that the air conditioning has now been removed from the description. The villa is clean and well maintained and there is a great open terrace with lake view and also two large covered verandahs to cope with the sometimes thundery weather. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Dear Rachel, thank you very much for your review. We are sorry for the fans instead of the air conditioning, due to a technical problem we were not able to install it for the 2014 summer season. We surely install it for the next year. With regards Nadia & Andrea

A lovely house in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had two wonderful weeks at Lake Iseo, there is plenty to do for all ages in the surrounding area. The house had plenty of room and was very relaxing and peaceful with stunning views of the lake. Everything was clean and Nadia and Andrea were very helpful, providing lots of information about the area. We all enjoyed the pool particularly as it was very hot when we were there. We would recommend hiring a boat from Global Nautic at Predore, it's a lovely way to see the lake. We would certainly recommend the house and area.

Beautiful house, beatiful place

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Nadia and Andrea for letting us rent your great house for 2 weeks this summer. We had a wonderful time, and the place was just perfect for us with the kids and the peace and quiet evenings (apart from when they did the fireworks show in Paratico, which was beautiful from the 1st floor balcony!).

We loved having the little dog Mina around, especially our 2 year old son, who Mina at the end probably thought was a pest for running to her as soon as he saw her. If you're not comfortable with dogs, don't worry, she'll stay in the wineyard next door.

The twin-towns Paratico and Sarnico have some nice restaurants and are generally cozy places with a lot to offer, just avoid trying for lunch after 2pm. Most restaurants are closed then.

The area is also very good for short hiking trips, there are paths and small roads going upwards into the hills behind the house, as well as nice areas in the vicinity. Around the lake there are tons of places to go if you drive a short bit.

You have an hour and a half to lake Garda and the amusement park Gardaland, some 40 minutes to Bergamo, an hour to Milano. Also places like Venice are at a reachable distance for a daytrip.

All in all it was a great place to spend the holidays. Thanks again Nadia and Andrea. And Nadia's parents, who came to take care of the pool and things while we were there :)

Holiday at Lake Iseo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in August 2009 in Villa Le Fonatnelle with 5 adults and 2 children. We had a great time! The house had all facilities we needed with large and clean bedrooms. The pool was excellent for children. We loved the view over Lake Iseo. Nadia en Andrea are really friendly people and they recommended several sites to visit in the area and the opera in Verona. They could also book tickes in advance. The surroundings are beautiful and ideal for biking. There are not many locations/beaches where you can swim in the lake, apart from the campingsites. There are many nice villages and the people are very friendly. It is really a very nice destination!
