  • About this holiday

    This charming hotel is perched above Lake Garda on the verdant hillside. Its rooms and terrace are afforded fantastic views across the water, with the hilly shoreline opposite just visible on a clear day. The rooms and suites are elegantly decorated, with pastel soft furnishings that complement the bright colours of the flora and lake waters outside. With Il Vittoriale degli Italiani, numerous other villas and gardens, and Sirmione and the Scaligeri Castle, so close by, the Villa del Sogno is the ideal starting point from which to explore this breath-taking Italian region.

    Our opinion

    The Hotel Villa del Sogno is a charming hotel, restful, with beautiful views.

    Hotel description

    The Hotel Villa del Sogno is another hotel which we found captivating from the moment we arrived and which our clients have enjoyed since. Perched above the lake in its own parkland of classic Italian vegetation of cypress, olive trees, palms and pines, and reached by a long winding drive, the Villa del Sogno offers accommodation of good quality in extremely attractive surroundings. The hotel consists of two buildings. Some of the bedrooms are in the original villa, built in the style of the region with a terracotta roof, abundant wooden panelling and a ceramic tiled fireplace; a newer extension has been built into the hillside beneath the villa where there are several more modern rooms with balcony. The rooms of the Hotel Villa del Sogno are all furnished comfortably and there are spacious public rooms; a cosy bar and lounge, terrace where drinks, breakfast and lunch are served in fine weather, and the elegant à la Carte restaurant. The swimming pool and the tennis court are set in the grounds a short distance away from the villa. Fasano can be reached on foot from the Villa del Sogno but as the road winds upwards for several hundred metres, it is not a walk that we would recommend for everyone.
