Fodor's Expert Review L’Albereta

Via Vittorio Emanuele 23, Erbusco, Lombardy, 25030, Italy Fodor's Choice

Set in an early-20th-century villa amid Franciacorta's hilly vineyards, this Relais & Chateaux property is a true sanctuary, with an enormous spa, a botanical garden, and vast, sculpture-filled grounds that you can explore on foot or by (complimentary) bike. Each guest room is different, though all are decked out with luxurious fabrics; most have balconies or terraces with garden, lake, or Alpine views, and some feature Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces. The hotel is owned by the same family as the neighboring Bellavista and Contadi Castaldi wineries, and you can sample these wines with your meals in the on-site gourmet LeoneFelice restaurant or VistaLago bistro. You'll want to devote time to the gorgeous spa's top-notch treatments—including hydrotherapy, body scrubs, facials, and massage—as well as its large pool, sauna, Turkish bath, and gym.
