The Lombardy region

Bergamo- one of the most beautiful fortified cities in Italy, where the Venetian East blends with the meditative severity of the Lombard landscape. The province offers the tourist parks, enchanting holiday villages (Lovere), nature oases, spa centres, ski resorts, picturesque lakeshores and riverbanks, solemn Alpine scenery.

Nature is entwined with culture, offering a multiplicity of attractions, accompanied by the rediscovery of old flavours and the search for local food and DOC wines.

Lovere

Lovere is on the west shore of Lake Iseo or Sebino, formed by the River Oglio in the terminal section of Valcamonica. It is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy (see: I Borghi più belli d'Italia).

History - The ruins of a Celtic fort (4th-3rd centuries B.C.) bear witness of the antiquity of the settlement. The Romans colonised the area leaving their mark above all in a large necropolis. The fortified aspect of the town centre dates back to the Middle Ages. Lovere was part of the Serenissima Republic of Venice from 1442 to 1797.

Places of interest - Palazzo Tadini was built between 1821 and 1826 to house Conte Tadini's art collection. It is the seat of the Academy of Fine Arts; it also hosts a modern painting section and important temporary exhibitions.

Basilica di Santa Maria in Valvendra -(246X82 ft) built in the second half of the 15th century ; it is in Renaissance style with Venetian influences.

The Sanctuary - built in honour of the loverese B.Capitanio and V.Gerosa, the founders of the Congregation 'Sisters of Holy Child Mary'.

Chiesa di San Giorgio - built at the end of the 14th century, it houses a magnificent painting by the Flemish painter Jean de Herdt (1657) and the altar- piece attributed to Palma il Giovane.

Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II - Its trademarks are the Palace of the Podestà and the civic tower, on which a fresco of a lion, symbol of the Venetian rule, bears the date 1442.

Museum of Natural Sciences - founded in 1996 by the local council.

Porto Turistico - It is the largest marina on European lakes. It houses a multifunctional amphitheatre, where shows, exhibitions and events take place, besides the public library, sports clubs, bars and restaurants.

Swimming pools - Two indoor heated pools (one for children) and an outdoor one equipped with 2 aqua trails and 3 water slides. People can sunbathe on the green outdoor lawn. Bar service.

Cinema-teatro Crystal - The community-room Crystal is the second multifunctional theatre in the Province of Bergamo with 664-seat capacity and high quality of the shows.

Events -

Sailing and rowing

Inter-regional, national and international Regatta. 'Disvela': project for the different-able.

Spring concert season by world-famous performers at Tadini Academy of Fine Arts.

Painting exhibitions by Italian and international artists at Atelier Tadini.

"Happy holiday in a house with beautiful views."

I spent a week at Casa Viola with my husband and a friend. Antonella is an excellent holiday home owner, always very attentive and helpful but never intrusive. Her fluent English is a great help to those who have very little Italian language.
Casa Viola is an attractive house on three levels, it is clean, comfortable and well equipped throughout. Bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds. Dining kitchen is very well equipped. Main bathroom is on the ground floor with a second bathroom and utility room on lower floor. We loved to sit on the terrace with great views over the lake. There is a pleasant garden with a gate onto a small street sloping down to the village. The weather was hot and sunny apart from a couple of thunderstorms in the evenings.
There is a supermarket within a few minutes walk of he house.
Lovere is one of the beautiful villages of Italy and on our first evening there was a spectacular fireworks display which was part of a festival celebrating this.
We visited Monte Isola, the largest lake island in Europe and we had a day trip to the beautiful city of Bergamo just an hour away by bus.
We had a very enjoyable holiday- thank you, Antonella.

Dear Guests,
It's been a pleasure to have you at Casa Viola.
Thank you very much for your review.
All the best.

"We had an enjoyable stay"

We had an enjoyable stay at Casa Viola recently. We saw a lot of this part of Northern Italy not seen before. It's a very comfortable house, well appointed and easy to run.
There were two drawbacks we had not anticipated. Firstly we were not aware that the second bathroom did not have internal access, and secondly, coming as we do from a rural area of UK, we were rather troubled by the incessant traffic noise.
No easy remedy for either but prospective guests should take note.

Dear Guests,
Thank you very much indeed for your review.

Best Wishes
Antonella

"Lovely in Lovere"

Antonella is a wonderful hostess. Her communication is top notch and quick. The house itself is wonderful; it is fully equipped for a stay of any length. There are more than enough dishes, flatware and cookware for anyone's needs. The shower in the lower floor has better water pressure but the main floor works well enough. The furniture is all comfortable (and I am very picky about beds!) and you can feel at home very quickly. We had our dogs with us and the space is great if you have pets. Everything is fenced in so your pets can have the run of the grounds. There are grape vines and plenty of trees and flowers so you can really feel close to nature. The only problem we had was with mosquitoes but insect repellant took care of that (they were not excessive, just a minor irritation). The views are outstanding and Lovere itself is a cute village with enough gelaterias and restaurants to suit anyone's tastes. I highly recommend Casa Viola and look forward to the day when I can stay there again.

Dear Guests,
Thank you for staying at Casa Viola and thank you very much indeed for your review. Your suggestions are precious. I'll check the water pressure of the shower.
Hope to have you again in Lovere.
All the best.

"Great location with lake views, access to lakeshore and charming town"

Casa Viola has a lovely terrace over looking lake Iseo which gets morning sunshine. House is comfortable and well equipped. Access to the marina and town is very easy on foot. Nice for evening promenades into the town for restaurants. Lovere is a bustling town with many shops and restaurants. Recommend the Restaurant La Campagnolo just at the bottom of the hill. A trip on the ferry to Pisonge on the opposite shore is a nice morning out (market on Friday). Overall a great base for exploring the lakes and mountains. Very friendly and helpful owners.
