Lake Iseo Italy – An Introduction

  • An introduction & brief look into Lombardy’s 4th largest lake
  • From picturesque walks to unmatched local Italian wine & cuisine – the Hidden Secrets of Lake Iseo
  • A Lesser-Known Italian Paradise – Why choose Lake Iseo as your Dream Home?

Lake Iseo, also known as Sebino, is the 4th largest lake in Lombardy, Italy. It is fed by the Oglio River and is equally divided between the provinces of Bergamo and Brescia in the North of Italy, in the Val Camonica area. Confined within towering mountains, Lake Iseo is a secluded haven unknown to many outside of Italy.

Packed with friendly locals and all of the joys of Italian living, from the food, the scenery and the wine, Lake Iseo is full of life. As a lesser-known Italian paradise, its attraction is magnetic, as it combines Italian style, society and culture with an unmissable sense of calm and seclusion. At Lake Iseo Properties, we believe it to be the perfect dream home to live vivaciously or grow old in retirement whilst surrounded by the unmatched scenery of the Italian Lakes!

The Hidden Secrets of Lake Iseo:

Wine & Cuisine – One of the best-kept secrets of Lake Iseo is its wine production! The Franciacorta wine, unique to the Franciacorta region, just south of Lake Iseo, is a hand-harvested, bottle-aged sparkling wine produced using the same methods the French use to craft their champagne. This smooth, well-balanced beverage is enhanced when paired with the delicious local cuisine of Lake Iseo. Their fish takes the main stage, with savoury dried lake sardines or fried bleaks (minnows) being the winning act.

Monte Isola – Maybe a not-so-hidden secret, a mountain on an island in the middle of a lake. Monte Isola is the highest island in Europe and is widely considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. It is perfect for a day trip with friends or celebrating a special occasion, with breathtaking panoramic water views. Only a short boat trip away, it offers an excellent solo or family trip destination to relax and enjoy the magnificent surroundings.

Lifestyle – Living in Lake Iseo promises endless hiking trails through dense woodland and picturesque mountains, beautiful lakeside walks, and extensive water sports for those who crave a more adventurous lifestyle. An overall active lifestyle, but one also filled with delicious food, wine, markets, art and incredible people. It really is the best parts of Italian living in a secluded paradise!
