Eighteen fractions: one of which is situated right on the shore, and the remainder dotted around on a busy plateau. It is set on hillocks of panoramic beauty towering over the entire Lake Garda. Tremosine is situated in the heart of the “Parco Alto Garda Bresciano” (Brescian Upper Garda Park) and it embodies its very essence, whilst bringing together all the natural and environmental qualities which are characteristic of an area of protected nature.
The most significant among these qualities has to be its scenic beauty. Here, the highest mountains in the Park fade into the blue of Lake Garda, creating settings you have never seen before. A natural haven yet untouched and unspoiled, the green plateau of Tremosine stretches out among the mountains and the lake, the Alpine and the Mediterranean and comforts the souI of its visitors. Opposite, on the other side of the lake, Mount Baldo stands imposinglv. The road running along the deep gorge of the Brasa stream Is marvellous, at times dug deep within the rock and others jutting out from overhanging cliffs leaving you in awe. Upon its inauguration, back in 1913, a correspondent for the Frankfurter Zeitung defined it as “the most beautiful road in the world”. Driving along it, it takes just a few minutes to go from the animated Lake Garda shore to the peacefulness of the plateau, where terraces sheer above the lake display all is splendour to the human eye. From the “Terrazza del brivido”, suspended 350 metres above the lake, the view is breathtaking. And, when evening comes, you can discover the delicacies of refined yet simple cooking.
There are many typical restaurants as well as numerous holiday farms whose strong points are the very typical products and traditions of the region. Even as far as cooking is concerned, the mingling of Mediterranean and Alpine flavours can be noticed: from lake fish to mountain game, from the famous Garda extra virgin olive oil to the noteworthy black truffles, and from wines to a variety of cheeses. A holiday in Tremosine offers a unique pleasant ensemble of opportunities and interesting activities, making your stay here an unforgettable experience.
