Soak up life in a quaint little mountain town at Vesio di Tremosine, with stunning views towards Lake Garda in the distance and the exciting Monte Baldo.
Vesio is one of the friendliest towns in the Tremosine area perched high above Lake Garda, yet no more than a fifteen minute drive from the town of Limone. The air is always fresh, and the sounds of nature, such as the bells from sheep, goats and cows, makes one think of the old movie "Summer in Tyrol".

Tremosine is a very popular place for nature lovers, especially mountain bikers, many of which come here to enjoy the wonderful routes and scenery and you will find many walking and biking trails starting nearby. If you bring your own bikes, you'll find that added advantage that the hotel offers bike storage, a bike wash and small workshop area. Guided tours can be booked at reception.
Hotel Sole & La Fenice has a history dating back to the year 1850, and today the company is owned by a very nice family with Signora Anna Maria Perini at the head, and all of the staff contribute to the warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It really is two hotels, and Hotel Sole was actually the town's first hotel. Hotel Sole and Hotel La Fenice are located on opposite sides of the road that runs through Vesio, but in practice it is run as a single hotel.
In recent years the family has invested a small fortune in a much needed renovation of the two hotels, including the installation of a lovely swimming pool with a children's section, from where there are great views of the valley. However, there are still some rooms that are yet to be modernised - and therefore the overall assessment of hotel so far is limited to 3 stars. In 2007, they completed refurnishment of four new rooms in a small adjacent building, just about 20 metres from the hotel.
Hotel Sole & La Fenice has a small reception, a lift in both buildings, a bar, restaurant and pizzeria (where the good quality attracts many local guests), a small wellness centre with a spa and sauna, a swimming pool and bicycle storage. You can park in a nearby car park approx. 3 minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel has around 60 rooms, which are either located to the rear of the hotel or facing the town and the valley. Most have a balcony or terrace, but this can only be guaranteed in superior rooms and suites. The standard double rooms are all nicely but simply furnished, and the standards are very different. Among other things, there are still a few rooms where the shower is shielded only by a curtain. Superior rooms were furnished in 2007, and all have parquet floors and a balcony. Junior suites are newly established (2011) and feature a wide balcony that looks towards the valley. The suites are large and were renovated in 2006 in a different style, and all have a balcony or terrace with views of Lake Garda. Each suite room can accommodate 4 people.
We were here for a week. Two adults and two small children (ages 2 and 4). We lived in a suite facing the road. The room was large and ok. Amazing, large balcony. As we lived in a suite facing the road, there was a bit of noise from cars and the bar, but that was quite nice and did not bother us! The staff were so nice and the cleaning was really thorough. The breakfast was ok. The pool area is fantastic! Vi had dinner at the hotel most evenings, but we will probably go out more often if we come back another time. The food was good, but the restaurant staff were straightforward unpleasant! We loved the hotel bar, though, which sells very large ice cream desserts. It was great to be able to run down to the bar at night and pick up drinks and desserts which were put on our bill.
All in all it was a great week. We recommend driving out for dinner once in a while, and driving to Arco.
Can only recommend this place. Super service, super place... You totally gear down. Lovely surroundings and you really feel, that you are in a small mountain village in Italy.
A small, cosy town where there isn't a lot happening, perfect for relaxing in. But also plenty of good opportunities for hiking and biking. We brought our own mountain bikes and didn't use our car during our stay (7 days) and it was a very challenging terrain, with steep hills. Enjoying a cold beer and some fantastic pizza at the square by the hotel afterwards was lovely. We look forward to coming back to this hotel again.
The description of the place is very fair. Fully benefited from Lake Garda's beautiful scenery and attractive climate, but without tourist circus. The hotel is the most clean and well-kept I have experienced in Italy, the pool area is lovely and the restaurant has a really nice ratio between price and quality.
We are planning to return to this plac
