MALCESINE: THE PEARL OF LAKE GARDA
The hotel is located in the town of Malcesine, one of the pearls of Lake Garda. It is a small medieval village surrounded by nature, suspended between water and mountains and gathered around the Scaligero castle. The town offers the opportunity to enjoy beautiful beaches on the lake or wonderful walks in the surrounding mountains.
Located on a cliff overlooking the lake, the castle is a truly unique wonder. It seems owes its origins to the Longobards, but it was later destroyed by the Franks in 590. It was rebuilt by them and in 806 it hosted King Pipino, who came to Malcesine to visit the Saints Benigno and Caro. After the Hungarian invasions, it became part of the Veronese bishop fiefdoms and later only in 1277 it became the domain of Alberto della Scala. It remained under the lineage until 1387.
THE ANCIENT VILLAGE OF MALCESINE
The town stands on a small promontory on the Veronese side of the lake, at the foot of Monte Baldo. Collected around the Castle and the Palazzo dei Capitani, the ancient village with the small harbor, the small squares, the animated alleys of shops, bars and typical restaurants, still retain its magical charm. In Malcesine you can go sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing or sunbathe lying in natural creeks or dive into the blue waters of Lake Garda.
From Malcesine, it can be reached through Mount Baldo cableway. Here, you can find the take-off for paragliding flights, mountain bike routes of any type, length and difficulty, suitable for all types of expectations and physical preparation. Furthermore, you can take panoramic walks following several itineraries.
