Four of us spent a week at Casa Viola. We rent homes in Italy every year. Have been doing so for years and have covered Sicily to Piemonte to the Lakes Region. The Iseo area was a delightful surprise.

The home is very comfortable for 4. Situated a short walk into town, excellent restaurants are easy and the LD market just down the street has an excellent meats and cheeses section (relative to Italy it was excellent with a wide and interesting variety and excellent quality). Casa Viola is very well maintained, everything works, great view of the lake and reasonably free of road noise. The kitchen is serviceable. All cookware is there, bring a couple of good knives if you're into serious cooking. Stove and oven can handle anything.

Antonella, the owner, was excellent in every respect. Kind, fluent in English and helpful.

The area caught us by surprise. We spend a lot of time on Como and Lugano and are in the process of building a home just above Lago di Lugano. We know that area quite well. Iseo is quite different. My observations is there is a healthy middle and upper middle class which has contributed to the entire area being kept in pristine condition. There are no high rises and tourism takes a notable back seat to the residents. I'd say it was one of the nicest areas we've vacationed in and will likely go back.

The food of the area deserves a book. Its quite different than what we expected and superb. As in the food stores, variety is notable. A very different menu than much of Italy and superb in every respect.

“Beautiful view overlooking the Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A Lovely house well kept house, with all necessary amenities included.
A wonderful location overlooking Lovere Marina and the northern part of Lake Iseo towards Pisogne and towards the mountains.
Close to Lovere centre for walks along the lake front, places to eat and drink to watch the world go by, and access to ferries to other parts of the lake.
A word of advise, Italian phrases are very helpful for the restaurants as very little English is spoken!
Antonella was extremely helpful and friendly, and is close by if required.

“Charming and Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Lovely view of lake. Cottage is spacious, nicely furnished and well equipped. Owner speaks excellent English and is very helpful. Short walk to lake and town, both of which are lovely. Exiting driveway onto busy road a bit challenging but doable with caution.
