Boasting a reputation as one of Desenzano's leading hotels, the stunning Hotel Villa Rosa is the perfect destination for couples and families alike. Situated opposite a peaceful lakeside beach and just a short walk to the bustling centre of Desenzano, this is a prime location for those wanting to explore the lake. The ethos of this breath-taking Neo-classical villa is one of luxury but never formality. Its 62 rooms are elegantly decorated in a mix of modern and tradtional with crisp lines, airy hues of cream, gold and amber with many offering lake views. The rich surrounding gardens give a feel of seclusion despite being so close to the town with the true hidden gems of the grounds being the small terraces tucked away amongst the flora which offer unrivaled views of Garda's azure waters. A large outdoor pool with whirlpool is also set within the gardens and perfect for spending a relaxing day with a book and of course, an Aperol Spritz.
The onsite restaurant 'Rose e Sapori' offers some of the best cuisine in the south of Lake Garda partnered with wonderful ambiance either in the candlelit dining room or out on the lakeside terrace in the warmer summer months. Stylish yet unassuming, this Michelin star rated restaurant offers a plethora of dishes from simple linguine with fresh crab to octopus curry with vanilla cream and cerviche with truffle and green papaya for those with a more daring palate! Light snacks are also served in the afternoon to be paid for locally. Breakfast is also provided each day with a choice of continental and hot options varying from day to day but always complimented by fresh fruits and rich coffee.
Perched virtually on the shores of Desenzano, the Villa Rosa is just a short walk to the main promenade where you'll find the ferry terminals to take you to the other resorts on the lake from Garda to Malcesine. The promenade is also home to a variety of cafes, shops and of course the daily market where everything from fresh fruit to jewelry crafted before your eyes is available to buy. Be sure to take a boat trip to nearby Sirmione to experience the hustle and bustle of the town as well as the spectacular Sirmione castle.
