OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel's in a wonderful hillside location, immersed in 32 acres of olive groves and fruit orchards. It's ideally located to explore the southern shore of the lake. Lined with boutiques and delightful restaurants, the pretty town of Salò is 2.5km away, with regular boats serving destinations around the lake.

By plane: direct flights from London to Verona take over 2 hours. The hotel is a 45-minute drive from the airport. Free on-site parking available. Book flights to Verona.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The atmosphere is calm and refined, yet informal and relaxed. The Italian-Finnish owners beautifully restored this former convent, which houses frescoes dating back to the 14th century. The owners' collection of antiques and works of art create a sophisticated feel, while vaulted ceilings and bare stone walls add a rustic touch.

THE FACILITIES

Finnish owner Jaana is often at reception to greet guests. Staff are extremely professional and attentive but not intrusive. The swimming pool is a delightful spot to unwind with a book and soak up some great views; there's a Finnish sauna too, along with a yoga studio where guests can take part in yoga lessons. There's a panoramic fitness trail, bikes are available for guests' use and massages can be organised on request.
