We had a very enjoyable lunch here on the terrace overlooking the lake. The food was excellent, well presented and the service impeccable, especially since for various reasons we only had an hour before catching the ferry back to Iseo. The restaurant is not cheap but the quality of the meal and the stupendous views made it well worthwhile for... More

Unbelievable downpours ended any exploring we had in mind so we dashed up the pathway of Castello Oldofredi and were rewarded by a lovely lunch in an ancient building with beautiful views over the lake. Even though we only ordered two courses we were still given an amuse bouche of tuna tartar. We tried lake and sea fish, pasta and... More

After a day of hiking I stopped here because a couple I met on the trails told me that it was a great place to eat. When I arrived they were very busy setting up for an event, but had one table in the shade off the patio, and were nice enough to let me sit there even though they... More

The setting really does make this place. A climb above the road brings you to a terrace where you can see the lake and mainland. The wine list is good value and the food is delicious. I had octopus to start followed by prawn pasta, good size portions and yummy. Husband had prawn pasta followed by pork fillet which he... More

This lakeside property on an island in a picturesque lake is well worth a visit. The friendly staff bend over backwards to be helpful, the view from the dining terrace is spectacular, the wine list is great value for the quality and the food delicious. The rooms are great, clean and very comfortable and the restaurants round the lake superb.... More

Description
Just a few minutes by boat from the mainland, you'll find yourself buried in a unique and unforgettable atmosphere. The old fisher boats moored in the sun, the old houses with their typical arches and loggias, the drying linens blowing in the wind, while the women and fishermen are chatting quietly.
Slow down, leave the mobile phone at home and enjoy the peace and calm of this magnificent setting. You'll get enchanted by the surroundings. Among excursions by foot or bike, wine tastings and cultural tours you'll for sure want to stay longer than expected.
Among the old olive trees the huge Castello Oldofredi appears, a historical property that dominates the fishermen village of Peschiera Maraglio. A short walk through the narrow alleys and you'll reach the sunny terrace, from where you have the most magnificent view of the lake. The panoramic pool is the perfect spot for enjoying a book under the shade of the olive trees.
After an important renovation residence Castello Oldofredi has acquired it's original appeal and splendour. All apartments have been renovated paying attention to the modern comforts, but keeping an eye on the historical details, such as affrescoes, oak-beemed ceilings and cotto pavements. The apartments are all different from each other.
All apartments are well sized and fit four or six people. We have suites and one-, two-, three-roomed apartments. All apartments have fully equipped kitchen, living room with sofabed and bedrooms with double or twin beds, bathroom with jacuzzi shower.
The restaurant at Castello Oldofredi offers a traditional cuisine, which is enriched by all the local products of the area around Lake Iseo, which we combine in traditional and modern dishes.
The dining room and the magnificent terrace overlooking the lake are the perfect locations for a romantic candle lit dinner or ceremonies, weddings or meetings.
The Castello Oldofredi is the perfect setting for special events or enjoying unforgettable moments, and it can be rented altogether for one group or occupying only single units.
