Santa Claus is coming to town

Santa Claus is coming to town…

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

100KM e I Quattro (Cheese temptation)

The “Terroir bresciano” is very rich in food excellences and we want just the best for our guests.

From the combination of these two elements we have selected four extraordinary cheeses that you can taste, just at Bellerive, combined to Garda’s extra virgin olive oil,  home-made mustard and a glass of a great Garda’s redwine.

Stracchino nostrano di latte di vacca, Formaggella di capra di Bagolino (very rare), Tombea della Valvestino “Praa di Denai” and Il “Bagòss” – estivo

You’ll be swept away by great flavours & sensations that will make you forget the cold outside and just hope that nobody will take the last slice you have put your eyes on!


















@Bellerive Hotel you can be always connected with all your devices using our free wi-fi connection.

It doesn’t matter if you have a blackberry or a laptop,  check your e-mails in the most cosy and lazy position on your bed and have a look to the most up-dated football scores always taking an eye on the sunset.

And what about IPAD…. Take a seat on your favourite armchair or sofa in the Bellerive Lobby Area and start enjoying the quick and easy internet surfing with your IPAD.

And if paparazzi catch up with you …. no problem …  you can run out of the lobby with your last generation shield as Charlene Theron!

Bites of Italy

As opera, food and wine enthusiast, Fred Plotkin couldn’t help but falling in love with Italy. And this passion has led him to write nine books including Italy for the Gourmet Traveler, the most complete book about Italian food and wine culture for the traveler (buy it on Amazon).

Moreover we are proud to say that Fred is good friend of ours, and to him we owe the invention of the name of our Restaurant 100KM.

Today we are glad to share with you a short video featuring Fred Plotkin at Fancy Food New York, one ot the best occasions to approach and sample the excellence of many typical Italian products. Enjoy!
