Hotel Monte Baldo & Villa Acquarone
If you’re feeling a bit low on the glamor factor in your life, this hotel might be the answer. Located in the glamorous resort of Gardone Riviera on Italy’s largest body of water – Lake Garda – Hotel Monte Baldo and the adjacent Villa Acquarone have both been attracting tourists in search of an elegant retreat since the end of the 19th century.
Apparently it has the feel of a private villa without the expense and, as it is family-run, a really personal touch. It’s right on the waterfront (you can even moor your boat, if you happen to have it with you), and draped in bougainvillea.
The main hotel was 31 en-suite rooms, as well as a restaurant and bar. The Villa is a little more exclusive, with nine en-suite rooms, decorated individually with original furnishings. Prices start at 54 euros per person.
