Villa Feltrinelli Review

This 1892 Art Nouveau villa hotel, named for the Italian publishing family that used to vacation here, has attracted the likes of Winston Churchill, D.H. Lawrence and Benito Mussolini throughout its illustrious history. Immersed in private gardens and overlooking the lake, the villa's interior has been meticulously and opulently restored with frescoed ceilings, wood paneling, antique ceramics, and original tile floors. (The marble flooring is heated in the bathrooms.) The rooms are palatial and equipped with every luxury (as befits the final bill). If you can afford it, take the tower room, or one of the independent guesthouses if that's your style. There's an extensive library open to guests.

    Villa Feltrinelli Review

    Quite simply the best hotel in the World. EVERYTHING is so beautifully run from the moment you arrive, to the sad moment when you leave. Once you've experienced this amazing hotel, you will be disappointed by every other hotel you ever visit.... Expensive, but it should be. The giant bill was a pleasure to pay.
