Among Italy’s many lakes, Lake Garda has long been the go-to retreat of Ancient Roman writers and European royalty – and it still attracts wealthy families looking for relaxation in sunny surroundings. Many of the historic villas once inhabited by aristocrats have been transformed into designer resorts, while old inns have been given a glossy makeover. The balmy climate, dramatic lake shore and ring of mountains are all a draw – and best enjoyed from your own private balcony or terrace at your hotel.
A sleek choice on the northern shores, this lake garda hotel takes a holistic approach to your wellbeing, blending design and nature. From the natural fabrics in the rooms to the parquet flooring made from the delicate wood of local Italian olive trees, sustainability is at the heart of your stay here. And it extends to the restaurant, where dishes are made with ingredients sourced from local farms.
It’s a little more palatable on the wallet than most other lake garda hotels, and still offers a good choice of lake-view rooms. You could even splurge on one of the suites, which have an extra room to stretch out and take in the views from a bigger terrace.
Located in a stunning setting on the edge of a peninsula, this five-star hotel is set in acres of sprawling parkland studded with towering cypresses. A member of the Leading Hotels of the World collection, the hotel has a refined, contemporary style – and, as with most Lake Garda hotels, the famous lake is on full display through floor-to-ceiling glass and large, picture windows. lake garda hotel
