Hotel Description

There really is nothing like escaping to a glamorous villa on the edge of a glacial lake in northern Italy. Lake Como might be the marginally more famous one, but Lake Garda, the largest in the country, has an equally stunning shoreline dotted with ancient towns, Roman spas, and postcard-perfect villas built by aristocrats of a bygone age. Villa Italia is one of these.

Dating from 1883, this cheerful yellow villa is set amid Mediterranean-style gardens and tall palm trees. It’s in the village of Arco, on the lake’s north shore — a few miles away from the water itself, but steps away from the town’s plazas and cafés. The original architecture remains, but inside, the romantic charm of the vaulted ceilings, thick walls, high archways, and shuttered windows is offset by interior design that’s coolly pared down. The 22 guest rooms and suites are almost entirely done up in a pale color palette of white and slate gray. Many rooms have skylights that let in the sunshine; otherwise, they’re satisfyingly simple, the only design features an antique writing desk or Italian poetry painted across a wall. Apartment-style rooms also have kitchenettes, should you wish to make an aperitif or a sandwich or an espresso.

Otherwise, there’s the lovely breakfast buffet. Have a cappuccino on the terrace, gazing up at the town’s striking signature landmark, the ruins of a medieval castle set high on a clifftop. Later, after you’ve hit the lake and seen the sights, cycled down the bike paths and hiked up in the hills — the region is famous for its outdoor offerings — retreat to Villa Italia for a dip in the indoor swimming pool or a massage in the wellness center. There’s a reason that Arco has been a vacation getaway since Roman times, but a movie star might snap up a lake house here anytime, so get in on the peace and quiet while you can.

How to get there: Villa Italia is an hour's drive from Verona Villafranca Airport via A22.
