Once the capital of the region, Salò’s historic town centre is lined with Liberty-style villas and a few fine examples of older palazzi. There’s also a grand Gothic duomo and some wonderful civic buildings in the Renaissance style. And then of course there are those exquisite views of Lake Garda. As far as our Gurus are concerned, the best places to stay in Salò are those with the best lake views. But their list also includes some lovely converted properties higher up the hill, towards the Monte San Bartolomeo, which were once elegant homes and villas.
Rooms with floor to ceiling windows, luxurious bathrooms and hot tubs. An in-house restaurant with a covered patio overlooking the lake. Gorgeous set-up in the best location. Right on the lake within easy reach of town.
A stunning hotel on the shore of Lake Garda. Rooms and suites in a 20th century villa are elegant, with parquet floors and all mod cons. Frescoes and art nouveau furniture. Excellent authentic cuisine, pool and shady gardens. An idyllic choice, and perfect for a family holiday.
