“A world-class spa (Henri Chenot) employing 30 therapists, doctors and others - and a chef - Gualtiero Marchesi - who has been called ‘the Father of Modern Italian Cuisine’ put L’Albereta in the top league. It is not particularly pretty and to English eyes, there is rather too much dodgy modern sculpture. There are some small housekeeping problems too (a scorched lampshade, a wobbly shelf). But the food is wonderful, there are linen sheets, the Bella Vista vineyards are just next door and a golf course is only 4km away. There is much to enjoy.”

“A charming 5-star resort in the verdant hills of Franciacorta a few minutes' drive from Lake Iseo, L'Albereta Relais & Chateaux is an enchanting place off the beaten track.
The ideal get-away for those seeking the pleasure of “some time-out”, L'Albereta seduces its guests with refined proposals for wellness and haute cuisine, with the Gualtiero Marchesi Restaurant and SPA Espace Vitalité Henri Chenot wellness & medical centre.
Situated in the centre of Lombardy, a mere half-an-hour drive from Brescia and Bergamo and less than an-hour from Milan and other major cities of art in North Italy, L'Albereta is the ideal location for meetings and events, as it can cater for ceremonies and receptions in great style in an exclusive setting.”
