Winter/Summer

The summer is ideal for excursions into the mountains and Nordic walking in the adjacent Valle dei Mocheni, which is also known as the valle incantata, the “enchanted valley”. It is noted for its distinctive, Germanic dialect, but it is the stunning scenery, with its variety of natural colours, that will linger longest in the memory. Rustic paths weave between traditional farm buildings and settlements, and on through the woodland and meadows of the stirring, wild countryside. Enjoy a relaxing stroll through ancient Alpine pastures to a mountain refuge or, for something a little more adventurous, cast your eyes to the peaks of the Lagorai mountain range.

Fancy a dip? The crystal-clear, Blue Flag-certified waters of Lakes Caldonazzo and Levico are waiting. So, too, are the spas at Lake Levico and Lake Vetriolo, while the fascinating environmental artworks of the Arte Sella collection are also within easy reach.

In winter, the Panarotta ski resort is just a few minutes’ drive, while the historic city centres of Trento (with the MUSE science museum designed by Renzo Piano) and Rovereto (with is MART museum of modern art) are well worth a visit.
With attractions like these so close to hand, Il Sambuco Bed & Breakfast makes the perfect base for a holiday at any time of year, whether it is art, sport or the natural world that interests you, or even all three.
