Fodor’s Expert Review

Perched in the vineyard-covered hills of Franciacorta, this charming Relais & Chateaux property features an enormous 21,000-square-foot spa, the perfect antidote to the city's chaos. The hotel itself is an early-20th-century villa situated in a large park with a botanical garden and modern art sculptures; for the best views, bike or hike through the peaceful grounds (bikes are provided free of charge). 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 a large pool, sauna, Turkish bath, and gym.
