Garnì Lago Nembia is an eco-friendly hotel surrounded by the stunning scenery of Lake Nembia, in Trentino. It is in the heart of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park at 850 m.a.s.l. it is immersed in the nature of the Nembia Oasis, which is just a few kilometers from San Lorenzo in Banale, Molveno, and Andalo.

We, the editorial board of Ecobnb, had the pleasure of interviewing Pasquale Castelgrande, responsible for the structure Garnì Lago Nembia. Here’s what he told us:

What do your guests appreciate most?

For our breakfast, which our guests can choose through a digital form, we have a unique zero-waste concept in fact we use only local and seasonal products.

Which slow routes (on foot, by e-bike…) do you recommend not to miss in the area?

There are many routes our visitors have to take in fact guests cannot return home without visiting Val d’Ambiez which is one of the wildest valleys where the king of our forests, Brown bear, reigns supreme. Instead by E-bike, it is wonderful to ride around Lake Nembia and Molveno, while on foot you cannot miss a visit to the 9 villas that make up the Borgo di San Lorenzo Dorsino (one of the most beautiful villages in Italy).

Furthermore, in mid-June you can fully immerse yourself in nature through the beautiful holistic experiences of the BrentAnima Festival: from Forest Bathing to treks accompanied by holistic therapists and alpine guides.

What does being part of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park and Ecobnb mean to you?

For us, being part of the Park is a privilege because the environment that surrounds and hosts us is very stunning. It is an important resource for the area and so we have the task of protecting this nature. Besides, our role, together with the Park and our partner Ecobnb, is to communicate an important message. We need a different world with slow tourism. In fact, we need tourism that respects nature, and the local community and has a clear concept of limits.

Trekking in the nature

In conclusion, if you are looking for a holiday in contact with nature, Garnì Lago Nembia is the perfect address!
