Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli, Gardone Riviera, Lake Garda, Italy
On the lake’s western shores, this neo-gothic villa (and
onetime hideout for Mussolini) is super-private, crammed with aristocratic
heritage, superbly restored antiques and exquisite accommodation.
one of Europe’s most luxurious hotels, its price-tag is as lavish as the
experience itself, but if you can afford it, it’s definitely worth the stay
(for its house-party vibe and creative two-Michelin-starred cuisine if nothing
else). Eight acres of grounds (the setting for tranquil walks, a
croquet lawn and heated pool), gorgeous boats and guided excursions give you
plenty to fill your days; and it’s impossible to resist the Regeneration
Lounge’s signature Acqua di Parma treatments.
