Immersed in eight acres of gorgeous landscape on the west side of Lake of Garda, Villa Feltrinelli is one of the most exclusive hotels in northern Italy. The Italian architect Alberico Barbiano designed a lakeside villa in the Neo-Gothic style for the wealthy Feltrinelli family of Milan, so they could spend their summer vacations away from the stress and the chaos of the city. During the final years of the Second World War, it became Benito Mussolini's house and he lived here from 1943-45.
Villa Feltrinelli has 21 elegant guestrooms and suites, 13 of which are situated in the main building, whereas the rest of them are spread throughout the manicured park. The rooms have different styles, ranging from contemporary in the cottages to old Venetian, and the mirrors inside the house are made of Murano glass. Each room in the main villa boasts beautiful frescoes on the ceilings and original furniture from the late 19th century, the epoch in which the villa was constructed. Transformed into a luxury hotel in 2001, every modern amenity has been included to make guests' stay sublime.
The restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars for Chef Stefano Baiocco's outstanding interpretations of the culinary art. Fresh, healthy, seasonal ingredients are selected by the chef and his team every day, whether it is a simple mix of vegetables or an elaborate meat or fish dish. In keeping with the hotel's dedication to service, guests can enjoy the luxury of eating at any time, anywhere: in the wine cellar or the garden, as well as in the formal dining room with its breathtaking views of the lake.
