Palace Hotel Villa Cortine, Lake Garda

Wander through the grounds, surrounding yourself with soaring palms, centuries-old pines, lantana bushes, hydrangea and sweet-smelling myrtle – or lose yourself in gazing across the twinkling waters of Lake Garda - and the rest of the world fades into the far distance. Graceful terraces, magnificent fountains and neoclassical statues only help reinforce the ‘another world’ impression.

The Villa Cortine itself also merits its five stars. As part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Italy, you’ll find the hotel is an ultimately opulent haven, featuring rooms set in a period Palladian villa, as well as glamorous suites purpose-created in the stylish wing built in the 1950s. Expect Venetian glass chandeliers, parquet flooring, antique furniture and carpets, complemented by décor that reflects the golden period of Italian interior design.
