“OK Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We had a couple of nights here on the way to Chianti, it's quite roomy and well located. It was very cold when we arrived (unseasonably so) and there was no heat or heat available when we asked for it. A caring owner would have gone there beforehand and got some kind of heat going yet they were there waiting for us as late arrivals and did nothing about it.
We did get a small, fairly useless portable electric heater next day upon request and put it into our friends bedroom upstairs for their arrival next day. The next day the water was not running in the evening when our friends wanted to shower after their journey, apparently the water company were doing evening repairs and the owners had not been notified. The breakfast looked like a quick run to the 7-11 store, we did not bother.
So, fairly bad start, but in good weather it is probably good value if you accept the owners basic disinterest. My very good rating is based only on location, the deck and so on, and the assumption that the rooms are warm.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We are a family of four, two adults and two children ages 15 and 11 from England and have just returned from a weeks stay at Aria di Lago (4th-11th August 2012). As there were no other guests booked in for this week, we were allowed use of the full house as a rental rather than B&B. It was fabulous!! The house is beautiful, clean with lots of space. There is a balcony off the lounge/dining area that gets the sun later in the afternoon which is lovely to chill on and admire the super views, the house is minutes from the lake and swimming . The owner was very helpful both before and during our stay. Just by the lake there is a bar/cafe La Vela which serves simple food with great service, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. The pool at Oregami which is available for Aria di Lago guests free of charge during the week was great, again with great views of the lake and mountains. We went several times and practically had the pool to ourselves. Not a lot of British people visit Lake Iseo, I stumbled across it accidentally and am so very glad I did. We had our phrase book and tried to speak a little Italian and found people in restaurants/shops helpful when we struggled. All in all we had a fabulous time in Paratico and the surrounding area and would recommend to anyone. We didn't want to come home!!

Room Tip: No air conditioning but fans are provided to keep you cool in all bedrooms.

We wanted a one night stop somewhere nice on our way back from Tuscany, and chose this B&B. We are really pleased with our choice. It is really near the lake, is a really nicely decorated place, the room was clean, shower was great, bed was good, had a balcony on the room overlooking the lake and we had use of the living room with coffee/tea making facility. Veranda with chairs to chill on in the evening. The owner does not live in, so very private. The area is great, two bars on the lake front, one does good value simple meals. Even had a swim in the lake. Breakfast was nice, continental. All in all great value, one of the best B&Bs we've stayed at.
