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!

Why Choose Lake Iseo as your Dream Home?

Lake Iseo is the ultimate combination of quaint fishing villages such as Predore or Riva di Solto, breathtaking lakeside views, especially in the village of Marone, as well as villages filled with activities, lively bars and vibrant restaurants such as Sarnico and Lovere. Filled to the brim with breathtaking nature and panoramic mountain views, Lake Iseo has all the qualities to make a beautiful dream home! It provides the desired lifestyle for people of all ages and needs whilst still being equipped with all the necessities of modern life. It also offers flexible living, with a railway enabling access to different areas of the lake, meaning you are never too far away from a change of environment. You are just 45 minutes from Lake Garda, 45 minutes from Milan, 90 minutes from Verona and 2 hours from Venice. The airport in Bergamo, just a 25-minute drive away, gives you access to the whole of Europe within 2 hours. A perfect destination.

Highly recommended, we bought our property in 2016 and we still use Madeleine for all her contacts and help for new work. If we bought again I wouldn't go anywhere else.

From start to finish dealing with Madeleine was fantastic. We didn't buy our property from Madeleine but she used all her years of experience in the Italian market to help us secure our dream home and provided great consultancy services. Great advice and always available to answer the smallest questions Madeleine made us fell like family.

We had been looking for an apartment in Italy for some years, when we met Madeleine. We quickly found the perfect location and apartment in Predore, by Lake Iseo. All the way through the process, from first showing of the apartment, to signing of the contract at the notary's, Madeleine has been of great help! She was always available for questions and concerns, which she still is. Since we took over the apartment, Madeleine has been such an amazing help in relation to translation when agreeing with contractors, planning of renovation of kitchen, visits to IKEA etc. Madeleine never says no to help you, which is really comforting when buying an apartment in a foreign country. Madeleine gets our warmest recommendations, if you want to buy an apartment, or a house in Italy.

Madeleine Morgan weiß genau, was sie tut und hat sehr viel Erfahrung. Sie ist äußerst professionell und vertrauenswürdig, ehrlich und transparent. Auf Fragen und Anliegen hat sie immer schnell und zuverlässig reagiert. Selbst wenn Schwierigkeiten bzw. Missverständnisse auftraten, blieb Madeleine immer ruhig und gelassen. Sie hat äußerst geduldig Sachverhalte - bei Bedarf auch immer wieder - erklärt. Madeleine tut weit mehr, als sie müsste, denn auch nach Abschluss des eigentlichen Kaufvertrages organisiert sie zusammen mit ihrer Kollegin Cristina alles, was noch erledigt werden muss, wie z.B. den Abschluss einer Versicherung oder die Anmeldung von Strom, Gas und Wasser, was übrigens in Italien zu einem äußerst komplizierten und langwierigen Prozedere werden kann...
