If a spectacular view of the lake and mountains is high on your list of holiday priorities, then Hotel Europa is a great choice for you. It is a most popular choice for those wishing to fully experience and explore this wonderful area, and the weloming hosts and great facilities are a real bonus.
The hotel has in recent years become a popular hangout especially for groups of British hikers, due largely to the fact that some of the many interesting walks in the area start right outside the door of the hotel. Breakfast has become an interesting social meeting point for groups to discuss various options regarding routes for the day ahead. The area is also popular for mountain biking, and Domenico, Sofia and Luisa who run the hotel are happy to provide some interesting ideas in respect to routes for both hiking and biking, and excursions in general.
The location between the lake and the mountains is ideal in the sense that it guarantees a varied holiday: the hotel is located just a few minutes' walk from the town centre of Limone, about 350 metres from tennis courts and 550 metres from Lake Garda and a sailing school. You can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the mountainside location, be near enough to a pleasant town with shops and restaurants, and participate (if you are the active kind) in a variety of activities. Otherwise, sit by the pool and relax, and soak up the spectacular views.
The restaurant serves fresh vegetables and fruit from their own garden to the fullest extent possible, and on Sundays there is often fresh fish which is usually caught by local fishermen. Due to the lack of space, the terrace is reserved for a la carte diners. However, other guests can also enjoy their dessert and coffee on the terrace if they prefer to be outside. The view from inside the restaurant is just as nice though. The hotel has a small reception on the first floor, where there is a lift to the other 3 floors. There is a bar, a restaurant, a large terrace with a lake view, swimming pool with sun loungers and parking, which can be used for a fee. During the high season the car park fills up quickly, but there is a larger one in Limone just a short walk away.
The 50 rooms are very simply decorated and all have bath with shower, WC and hairdryer, telephone, satellite TV and a safe (charges apply). Most rooms face the lake, while a few rooms face the mountain, which are sometimes preferred by guests since there is less traffic noise. All single rooms face the mountain and do not have a balcony.
