Villa Feltrinelli is a stately home on the western bank of Lake Garda, in the vicinity of cities of great artistic interest such as Verona, Milan and Venice. This private parkland looking over the lake is noteworthy for its old lemon-houses, magnolias, cypress trees, olive groves and Italianate gardens. Guests can relax and play in the swimming pool, where home-made ice creams are also served, or perhaps just take it easy and enjoy the afternoon breeze, and a good book, on the private landing stage. You may also decide to board the launch, Riva, for an excursion to the various lakeside sights of interest. Guests at Villa Feltrinelli have many treats in store for them.
The Feltrinelli family commissioned the villa in 1892 as a retreat providing an escape from the heat of the summer in Milan. It was constructed in the neo-Gothic style by architect Alberico Barbiano di Belgioioso. The decor of this summer retreat includes fine wood panelling, wood inlay ceilings, stained glass windows and delicate frescoes. Villa Feltrinelli was restored in 1997 and transformed into a deluxe hotel by the famous hotelier, Bob Burns, the founder of Regent International Hotel. Guests seeking respite from the hectic rhythm of today's life can now enjoy the timeless charm of the location and premises of Villa Feltrinelli.
A feast for the eye... and for the spirit! The interiors of Villa Feltrinelli, and the refinements of the crafted decor, will fascinate you. The original furniture and furnishings have been lovingly preserved, and now confer a unique, unmistakable charm upon the premises, and an air of timeless refinement and exclusiveness.
The imposing marble stairways, inlaid Venetian mirrors and grand Venetian chandeliers take the visitor back to another age. This fascinating unique retreat is adorned with refined, delicately frescoed ceilings. The rooms in the main Villa combine the features of bygone eras with modern-day facilities and services, such as hi fi audio and satellite communications.
Alongside all modern conveniences, visitors seeking privacy, relaxation and peace will also most surely enjoy the discreet charm of the rooms located in the park cottages. Relax in the shade of the patio. Enjoy the lakeside fragrances and breeze, and the perfect harmony of the natural lakeside surroundings. Romance and unforgettable moments in time.
Chef Stefano Baiocco's creations are all unique. Unique, also, is the quality of herbs and flowers of the garden, providing fresh delights picked daily. The herbs are selected to provide special, unusual combinations, lending each dish its own individual touch of imaginativeness. The cuisine includes local specialities, combining with the chef's own creative approach. The elegance and charm of both locations will make this an unforgettable experience.
Executive Chef Stefano Baiocco adds a very personal touch to his dishes. He blends his ingredients, 'noble' or 'poor', with another ingredient - his own fertile imagination! Before one even begins to taste these treats, the elegance and style of the presentations will delight the eye - all thanks to the dedication of Stefano Baiocco and his excellent team.
For each dish, the essence is in the detail, in the consistency and matching of flavours, whether a simple salad, enriched with the addition of herbs and edible flowers, or our more elaborate, complex fish and meat dishes.
Whether it's the dining room with its fine crystal chandeliers and hand-decorated wallpaper, or the pergola with its view over the lake, there's not a corner where you won't find that magic atmosphere that makes Villa Feltrinelli such a very special place. What a privilege it is to dine by the light of a candle by the lake or swimming pool. Lunch in the gazebo in the cooling shade of the magnolias and olive trees. A midnight snack in the pantry. It's all special, it's all magic.
