  • About this holiday

    The intrigue of this hotel begins with its neo-gothic facade. Its peach and ochre striped walls are punctuated with star-shaped and arched windows, and crowned with battlements. Inside, its spacious rooms follow a more reserved colour scheme; though the eclectic vibrance returns in the dining room, offering a colourful environment in which to eat and absorb the views over Lake Garda. Its location on the lakeside is unrivalled. At the base of the tiered village of Gargnano, the surrounding peace and quiet of the hotel comes from its pleasantly secluded situation.

    Our opinion

    The Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli is a glorious restored historical Villa with outstanding attention to detail and service.

    Hotel description

    Tucked away on the western shores of Lake Garda, the Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli has a most exclusive and secluded position. A glorious neo-gothic building, the hotel was built in the 19th Century as a summer escape and has been beautifully restored to reflect its history, with sumptuous and warm interiors that incorporate exquisite features such as stained glass windows, fresco ceilings, antiques and carved wood ceiling panels. The painstaking restoration of the Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli is a most impressive and outstanding success, and the beautiful Fresco ceilings are especially breathtaking. Lantern lit paths cross through the eight acres of historical parkland that surround the hotel. The Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli has a feel of a private residence, offering outstanding standards of service, including complimentary laundry, an unpacking service and a pantry stocked with beverages and snacks. In keeping with the hotel’s dedication to service, guests can enjoy the luxury of eating at any time, anywhere, such as in the wine cellar or the garden, as well as in the dining room, which has breathtaking views of the lake. The Villa Feltrinelli’s twenty rooms and suites have been individually decorated to incorporate graceful period features, like the Villa’s original drapery and handcrafted Venetian bedside lamps, with modern touches to ensure a most luxurious stay. Attentive yet discreet service and a marvellous historical ambience create a most exceptional retreat.
