Your expert reviewer
The hotel is in Salò, in the historic centre with its elegant boutiques and restaurants. This is a yachtie town and you're on the lakefront promenade - but it's quiet and peaceful.
You're in an ideal location for exploring the lake, with boats departing from the nearby jetty to numerous destinations.
By plane: London to Verona takes just over 2 hours, after which, it's a 35-minute drive to the hotel. Paid parking available nearby. Book flights to Verona.
CHARACTER & STYLE
Sleek and stylish, this family-run boutique hotel has an industrial-chic vibe - think glass and concrete with oxidised brass, iron and slate. Photographs and artworks made from recycled materials add vibrancy, while overall, the atmosphere is warm and inviting.
Being a boutique hotel, facilities include a restaurant, wine tasting room and terrace with lake views. The owners - the Briarava family - are delightful and take care of your every need, including organising activities in the local area (from boat rental and water sports to winery visits).

FOOD & DRINK
The restaurant serves seasonal dishes prepared using local ingredients sourced from small producers - thanks to Chef Gianni Briarava. The hotel has a cellar and the wine list is very well thought-out, with many wines available by the glass. The shrimp tartare is divine, perfect to enjoy with a chilled white wine on the veranda as you watch yachts bob up and down in the water.
Restaurant: authentic dishes with local ingredients. Open for lunch and dinner.
