    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Once an elegant country residence for a noble family, L'Albereta has been sensitively restored to offer charming rooms in five-star comfort in a rural location. The decor is distinctly Provencal in flavour. Many of the original features have been retained like the period frescoes, nineteenth century fan-lights and watercolours. The spacious bedrooms have been furnished individually and benefit from private bathrooms. Some rooms also have a balcony or direct access to the lawns and flower beds which make up the grounds of the hotel. The Lake Tower has recently been transformed into suites and junior suites with Jacuzzi tubs. The public areas are comfortable and relaxing and are made up of lounges, a sun terrace, and a bar, as well as the tennis court and spa. The well-equipped spa contrasts beautifully with the traditional feel of the rest of the hotel. The design is stylish and contemporary and incorporates resin floors, waterfalls and Italian design furniture mixed with original Thai antiques. The varied treatment menu includes some minor surgical treatments, such as liftings and peelings. L'Albereta is set in the attractive region of Franciacorta, an area which reflects the typical vision of Italy of rolling fields and vineyards. This is one of Italy's prime culinary tourist areas and some of the Italy's finest wines are produced here. 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.
