    Our opinion

    Stunning cuisine, a divine spa and convenient proximity to Lake Iseo.

    Hotel description

    An enchanting discovery within the gently rolling landscape of Franciacorta, the five-star Hotel L’Albereta is the setting for bucolic pleasures and pure indulgence. Clad with creeping shrubbery that eclipses the hotel’s façade, L’Albereta’s terracotta roofing and Juliet balconies suffice to hint at the history and charm that is intrinsic to the property. Wander the ambient grounds, where manicured lawns exude an air of authentic Italy: fertile, rustic and inviting. Beyond, the countryside extends along a level plane in a glacier-formed valley that is distantly bordered by dynamic peaks that shadow Lake Iseo. There are two restaurants to choose from at the hotel, both of which are popular and require advance reservations. VistaLago Bistro is open from 7.30am until the early hours of the morning and offers wholesome home-made bistro meals. Restaurant Leonefelice is open for dinner on Thursday and Saturday nights, when Chef Fabio Abbattista prepares contemporary and traditional flavour combinations using produce sources from the hotel’s vegetable garden. Each of the 38 rooms at Hotel L’Albereta achieves effortless elegance and boutique distinction, having been crafted with utmost care. Open fireplaces forge intimacy and quality furnishing s and fabrics promote excellent sleep. With an accommodating staff and the outstanding Henri Chenot Spa facility, L’Albereta provides an accomplished service. A balance between physical harmony and utter indulgence is key; relaxing spa treatments, regional wines and divine cuisine are all ripe to be devoured.
