The hotel is located in the flat part of the village, just 300 metres from the shores of Lake Molveno, where you can walk or cycle along paths that wind around its 12-kilometre edge. There's a choice of cafes, bars and restaurants nearby, although some are only open during the summer months. Upon arrival you will be given a Molveno Card, entitling you to up to 50% off local activities and amenities such as swimming, tennis, boat hire, bowls and mini-golf (some of these may be seasonal and unavailable during your stay).
Admire Italy’s towering Dolomite mountains during your stay. Their shimmering pink hues can be seen both day and night. The Dolomites are ancient coral reefs that were once covered by a shallow, warm sea. After millions of years, the sea receded, and the former seabed lifted to between 2,000 and 3,000 metres in height. The area surrounding Molveno is a Nature Park, and home to some of the richest natural wildlife of the Alps.
The village of Molveno sits beneath the Brenta region of the Dolomite mountains and beside Lake Molveno, northwest of Trento in northern Italy. The surrounding area is part of the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park, created in 1967 to safeguard this unique environment. It's home to some of the richest natural wildlife of the Alps, including the ibex and the brown bear.
Lake Molveno is the largest natural Alpine lake to be found higher than 800 metres up in Italy. It's over three square kilometres in area and between 49 and 123 metres deep! There are some beautiful beaches surrounding the lake while large forests stretch from the lake up to a height of 2,000 metres. It's the perfect place for walking or cycling, or even to explore on horseback.
Mountain lifts are open during the summer months when walking is a popular pastime, while in the winter 'La Paganella’ is a popular skiing resort.
Small, so-called 'Napoleonic' forts which you'll see at the western shore of the lake were actually built around 1802 by the Austrian army, who were stationed at the ridge of the Non Valley to protect the area against the threat of invasion by the Napoleonic army.
The old centre of the village of Molveno has an ancient, water-powered sawmill, still in operation, and a 13th-century church.
A number of buses run daily from Molveno to Trento or Mezzocorona – a renowned wine-growing area – 25 kilometres away.
