“A One-of-a-Kind Accomodation with a Stunning View”
Reviewed 17 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Torre Antica is a recommendable place to stay at the charming Lago Iseo, that - even after the Christo installation - remains a hidden gem for the mass of tourists flooding the other lakes in Lombardy. Lovere itself is a neat smalltown (popular with Italian visitors on the weekends), that we found much more appealing than Iseo Town with its professional touristy appearance.

Torre Antica is truly a one-of-a-kind residence, in a quiet street (unless the restaurant nearby features a live music act on the night), just a three minute walk from the vivid plaza by the lakeside. It is indeed remarkable how much comfort can be found in a flat as small as this. It's obvious that a lot of thought and technical skills went into the elaborate interior. Andrea Canu is a very friendly host, and speaks good English.

The view from the balcony of the sleeping room across the lake is priceless, but be aware that it takes you up exactly 100 stairs from street level to enjoy this stunning prospect. (And no, there's no elevator).

So, why "only" four stars? Well, towards the end of our ten day stay the limitations of space became more apparent (the wall cupboard above the beds, the tiny toilet), something a 3-day-vivitor wouldn't probably bother about. And, at least in August 2016, the 'fully equippped kitchen' lacked of some things we consider essentials: amongst others, there was no water boiler, no coffee machine, just one very small and one very large pot (the middle size would've been helpful).

Nonetheless, we fully enjoyed our stay, and can only recommend Torre Antica, with said small reservations.
