Description: Just a few minutes by boat from the mainland, you'll find yourself buried...
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.

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

Visited at lunchtime- good lunch menu with salads and cold cut dishes, well executed. Recommended is the Culatello ham with pears. Served in large portions- none of this haute cuisine nonsense. Slightly annoying that they by default bring out more bottles of water unless you tell them to stop. A surprisingly good restaurant. Would return.

Nice view, looking on Lago di Iseo. We went two times. The first time the food was OK. The service however, was bad! The second time I asked prawns with olives. They were horrible!! The smell was disgusting. Never again.

This place was incredible, the view from where we sat looked out over lake iseo, which alone was amazing, but we also had some delicious local wine, plus divine food from the area. An extra bonus was a tour of the castle as a potential wedding venue! The staff were fantastic, definitely go!

The view of the lake from the terrace is lovely. The only drawback is that it is open to the winds. Depending on the weather this could be good or bad. The menu contains both standard courses and specialities based on the fish in the lake as well as from the area. We had sardines with polenta for starters, which... More

We went to this restaurant by chance, as we walked by the ambiance of the place seemed nice. We had burrata and citrus risotto for entree, fish as a main and panacotta for desert. Every single dish was nothing but AMAZING. All the ingredients were so simple and fresh. The staff was super friendly and helpful and they ever offered... More

Wow, what a view and what a beautiful hotel/restaurant! The terrace is stunning, with lemon trees, candles and large umbrellas to give some welcome shade from the August sun. We travelled to Monte Isola from Sarnico on the ferry and needed somewhere for a quick lunch, as we only had seventy minutes before the return boat. The service was extremely... More
