In and around of San Zeno di Montagna


San Zeno di Montagna is a traditional mountain resort which offers stunnning views over Lake Garda and always pleasant fresh air. Due to its exposed position it is called "the balcony over the Lake" and attracts more and more international tourists due to its lovely medieval origins you still can find, its "0 miles" local traditional food and wonderful hiking & biking trails close by. The Monte Baldo Mountain lies behind you and the Lake at your feet. The busy "waterfront" can be reached within a 15 /20 min car drive where all kind of sport or fun activities like shopping can easily be practiced..

San Zeno di Montagna is a place to relax  and enjoy the Lake in harmony with its nature, its traditions, its people.
