- The nearest rental for stand up paddles ist the Polisportiva fior d’Olivo
club in Aquafresca, a village situated only 800 meters walking distance from
our hotel, on the lakeside walking towards north.
- Brenzone sul Garda has several kite surf schools. We would like to mention
XKITE where Lorenzo practices this cool dynamic sport since years. The school
is really close to our hotel and offers lessons for beginners, elevator and
rental of equipment. It’s situated in the Polisportiva fior d’Olivo club in
Aquafresca, a village situated only 800 meters walking distance from our hotel,
on the lakeside walking towards north.
- There are two important boating clubs in Brenzone, both organize lessons
for beginners and advanced. The Polisportiva fior d’Olivo club in Aquafresca
is within walking distance from the hotel, walking alongside the lake for about
800 meters north. The CNB club is situated in the community Castelletto, 3km
from the hotel. Another club in Castelletto, just on the typical little harbour,
is GoSail where you can rent sailboats, or take boat excursions with a skipper.
Another nice school is Fitzcarraldo, situated on the lakeside promenade between
Porto and Magugnago, 1km from the hotel walking towards south. Fitzcarraldo
offers lessons for beginners in sailboats and dinghies. We also mention the
Gardasurf Center situated near Castelletto where you can rent your equipment
and take sup, windsurf and sailing lessons.
For motorboat rentals you can approach the Hotel Belfiore, situated 400 m south from our hotel. Or contact Gosail or Nautica Tre Cuori, both situated in Castelletto, on the small harbour.
- Brenzone sul Garda hast the first signposted Nordic Walking Parc on the
Gardalake! Visualize here the map and follow the signposted paths according
to your level. Hotel Nettuno has free trekking sticks at your disposal.
- Just follow one of the many paths directly on the street or alongside the
lake and after a small steep rise you will find yourself in the middle of secular
olive trees and small villages where the time seems to stand still. Just ask
at the reception for our Travel Guide Brenzone, which you can also find in our
rooms, and follow the map. The charming Campo, a half-abandoned village with
ruinous houses, is worth a visit: from here you have a breath-taking view on
the lake. Here, time really stands still!
To the venturous and active we suggest to take the cable car ‚Funivia del Baldo‘ in Malcesine that transports you up to 2.000m. The panorama from here is more than breathtaking! For the lazy ones there are terraces/bars to enjoy the view while sipping a coffee. The active ones should take their map and discover the signposted paths! Don’t forget a good equipment: walking boots and windbreaker.
For those who love the calm far from the tourists crowds, we recommend the location Prada. Prada is a small mountain village between Brenzone sul Garda and San Zeno di Montagna. You reach the location by taking the Gardesana road towards south, after the village of Castelletto, you’ll find a sign at the traffic light indicating an ascent at your left. Don’t get scared, the road is initially really narrow and leading through some small villages, then, after some hundred meters it widens and offers a spectacular view on the lake. Arrived in Prada, you can leave your car at the carpark Due Pozze or Prada Altra, situated right at the bottom of the not yet functioning cable car Prada-Costabella. The hiking trails leading to the huts are beautiful and little used, here you are in close contact with nature, far from the crowd, the chaos and noise. The silence and panorama will contribute to render your experience unique! Attention: even if the trails are signposted, you should bring a map (available at the reception or the Tourist Information Office). Do not forget a good equipment for altitude hikes. Up there, cell phones have only little service, but at the hotel Edelweiss or Cacciatore you can always find help and a nice smile (and also excellent food and wine!).
- If you wish to rent a city- or mountainbike, there is a service in Brenzone
that brings you the bike right to your hotel! You can also rent it at the club
Polisportiva fior d’Oliva in Aquafresca, a village situated 800 m walking distance
from the hotel walking north along the lakeside.
- Sweet farniente? Fancy to be pampered? Walking along the lake towards south
you will find only 500m from our hotel the Hotel du Lac where you can enjoy
the wellness center on payment: sauna, heated indoor pool, fitness center, cosmetics
and massages! (As guest of our hotel you enjoy a 15% discount on all the massages
at the Hotel du Lac!!)
- Here in Brenzone you can find many little medieval churches that tell a
lot about the past and the traditions of the location. Starting with the church
San Nicola in the parish Assenza, San Pietro in Vincoli in the village Campo,
Sant’Antonio abata a Biaza and San Zeno de l’Oselet in Castelletto. All 4 churches
are interesting and in the inside you can find a little brochure explaining
what you are looking at. Also worth a visit in Castelletto, near the church
San Zeno de l’Oselet, not far from the cimitery, the ruins of a former splendid
Roman Villa, a unique archeological discovery in the lake Garda area near Verona
because of its dimensions.
Moreover, when walking the little alleys leading to the town center situated in the heights of Castelletto, you can discover an ethnographic museum which tells the story of our people through objects and artifacts. Castelletto also has a library called ‘Daniele Vangelista’ that is open every morning and is run by local volunteers.
- Tennis: In Cassone, only 1km from the hotel, you can find 5 tennis courts,
4 of which are clay courts and 1 synthetic court. For reservations please ask
at the reception.
In Brenzone there are also a volleyball court and a soccer field, both are situated at the Polisportiva fior d’Olivo club in the village Aquafresco, that you can easily reach after an 800 m walk along the lakeside towards north.
… For more information you can approach the Tourist Information Office Brenzone just 20 m from our hotel!
