L’Albereta, Lombardy

The high Renaissance art, the fashion houses, the sight seeing opportunities, the sleek shops and bustling restaurants of Northern Italy’s major towns are easily accessible when you want. Brescia and Bergamo are just 30 minutes away by car. But make L’Alberta one of the destinations on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Italy and you may find yourself ignoring their appeal completely.

The ivy-covered walls and red tiled roofs of L’Albereta, the picturesque vineyard, groves of ancient trees and the surrounding Lombardy countryside will work their magic on you. Similarly, L’Albereta’s haute cuisine will render the busy town restaurants largely irrelevant. Spa Henri Chenot, meanwhile, will build a new you with its wellness treatments directed by a 30-strong medical team that includes doctors, osteopaths, dieticians, therapists and beauticians.
