Hotel Villa del Sogno 

An intimate hillside hideaway

Set in a beautiful neoclassical villa, offering romantic charm and stunning panoramas of Lake Garda.

Built more than 100 years ago for a wealthy industrialist, the graceful fin-de-siècle Villa del Sogno still feels like a private retreat. Wandering around its elegant rooms, strolling in the verdant nine-acre grounds - complete with neoclassical temples - or lingering on the elevated east-facing terrace, you can still sense what it was like here in those early days. The buildings have been sensitively restored, brought into the 21st-century without losing their character, and new additions such as the pool haven’t been allowed to spoil the exclusive ambience of the place. Even the sun loungers around the swimming pool have been positioned to make the most of the soul-soothing scenery.

Why we love Hotel Villa del Sogno

  • Everything here revolves around the stunning views over Lake Garda, especially the all-round ones from the vast terrace that runs the length of the villa.

  • There are inspiring viewpoints dotted around the large garden, where the vistas are framed by rare botanical specimens.

  • From sail boats to paddle steamers, motorboats to hydrofoils, it's easy to explore the lake and its surrounding towns.

  • Perfect your serve with a tennis lesson from a professional instructor on the hotel's court.
