Set back from the main road, a short stroll from both the centre of Desenzano and the lakefront, this contemporary and stunning hotel offers both an enviable location and fantastic levels of service. The property has a sleek and modern feel with an elegant décor complemented by spacious rooms and well-kept facilities.

The rooms here are rich with cosmopolitan tones of stone grey and cream, offset by splashes of fuchsia and turquoise. There is a large dining room on the ground floor where an extensive breakfast buffet is served each morning complete with fresh fruit juices, coffee and teas. In the small but beautifully manicured gardens, you will find a pool and whirlpool which is ideal for a spot of afternoon rest and relaxation, whether you've spent the day strolling around Desenzano and its bright and lively promenade or hopped on the ferry to one of its neighbouring resorts.

Desenzano

A holiday in Desenzano combines a picturesque lakeside resort setting with the vibrant atmosphere of a thriving Italian community. Social life is focused on the many bars, cafés, pizzerias and restaurants in the historic centre and on the pedestrianised shopping area. Narrow streets lead up to the medieval castle that overlooks the town and offers panoramic views of the lake. Desenzano has two harbours and two public beaches.

The resort has the best ferry and hydrofoil services on the lake so the main lakeside towns, including Garda, Peschiera and Sirmione, are very accessible. Bus and train connections are excellent and Verona, Venice and Padua are within easy reach.
