Fodor's Expert Review Villa Feltrinelli

Via Rimembranza 38/40, Gargnano, Lombardy, 25084, Italy

This 1892 Art Nouveau villa hotel, named for the Italian publishing family who once vacationed here, has attracted the likes of Winston Churchill, D.H. Lawrence, and Benito Mussolini to its private lake-view gardens; extensive library; sumptuous and palatial rooms (as befits the final bill); and overall opulent interior of frescoed ceilings, wood paneling, and antique ceramics. If you can afford it, take the tower room, or one of the independent guesthouses.
