Bike hotels in Lake Como/Garda, Italian Lakes (Lombardy)
There are two very famous cycling hotels in the Italian Lakes, the Lake Garda Bike Hotel on Lake Garda and Il Perlo Panorama on Lake Como. More details below.
Lake Garda Bike Hotel
The Lake Garda Bike Hotel is the specialist name of the Enjoy Garda Hotel, a four-star resort that truly is one of the best cycling hotels Italy can offer to enthusiasts. It’s not the largest – with just 43 rooms and two suites – but rooms are beautifully appointed to help you relax.
The cycling amenities are extensive – a choice of daily rides for different difficulty levels, bike storage with workshop and mechanics, bike rental, transfers to other cycling destinations, ride support and dining options that work around rides, with packed lunches also available. No wonder the hotel is an annual base for world champion Peter Sagan and his Bora Hansgrohe team, and is one of the most popular for cycling holidays in Italy in general.
Il Perlo Panorama
Hotel Il Perlo Panorama is so named because it offers panoramic views of Lake Como. And they are simply stunning. It’s a two-star hotel though it’s very well appointed with modern, light rooms that often have their own lake view too.
Secure bike storage is available, or you can rent a bike instead. There’s a full service bike shop on the ground floor. The hotel has a cycling manager, Carlo, along with other professionals who offer guided cycling tours around the lake, or can advise you on the best routes for you to explore on your own.

The best known Bormio cycling hotel is the Hotel Funivia.

Piedmont Bike Hotel is a three star hotel situated in Piedmont’s countryside, near Alba, Torino and the French border. From here you can access the mountains and flat riding too; the hotel describes its location as “where the Alps meet the sea” and “cycling between Barolo and Truffles”. Foodie cyclists, read on!
A hotel with “bike” in the name is always going to be serious about its cycling offer and that is certainly true with the Piedmont Bike Hotel. You’ll find everything from a bike room and washdown area to local cycling guides, minivan support, daily laundry service and Pinarello bike rental. Post ride, massages are available and there’s also a lovely pool area. For non-cyclists (or those on a rest day), there are fantastic foodie tours and tastings to be discovered.

- Best for: Cyclists who want to sample Piedmont’s food and wine.

As such there are some truly excellent Riccione bike hotels – as they’ve been honing their offering for the last 20 years or more!
