A stunning oasis featuring a spa and beautiful rural position, with a free shuttle into town.

With a spectacular setting between a nature reserve and rolling vineyards, a short distance from Lake Garda itself, this is the ultimate location for rest and relaxation and for lovers of the great outdoors. The resort consists of lovingly restored turn-of-century annexes and lemon houses, and an Art Nouveau villa overlooks peaceful Lake Frassino. We recommend hiring a car to explore the local area and to visit the villages that line the lake shore which is approximately 20 minutes away. Or opt for spending time at the small, yet perfectly formed spa for a whole host of relaxing therapies in the exposed-brick treatment rooms.

There are two restaurants; Ardea Purpurea, named after purple heron who live in the reserve, sits in a charming early 20th-Century villa and has wonderful lakeside to go with breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Tuffetto Grill & Bar is named after one of the region’s bird species, the dabchick, and is open during the summer months for casual poolside grilled dishes and light snacks. The hotel is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, and you can try some of the local produce when you dine.

The rooms reflect the character of the property and are located throughout the hotel’s historic farmhouse building and the newer poolside Belvedere building. Individual in style and design, they each have calming tones, and some feature exposed brick work and light wood ceiling beams, making them a real pleasure to retreat to at the end of the day. Comfort Rooms have views out over the local vineyards or the hotel’s own gardens. The Superior Rooms have a view of Lake Frassino, as do the Deluxe and Executive Rooms.
