“Elegant and intimate lakeside hotel, full of character, owned and run by an Italian count. A hotel for 500 years, the property is right on the waterside in a charming location, full of antiques and objets. A very special and relaxed place to stay.”

Hotel Review

Homely, yet sophisticated, with the intimacy of a well-worn country house, this 400-year old inn, privately owned by Conte Agostino Guarienti, has antiques and creaky wooden floors, a ceramic stove and sideboards displaying plates and bottles. You can eat in the cosy dining room, on a little arched veranda or under huge white umbrellas on the terrace. A delightful spot for the discriminating.

Locanda San Vigilio

"It feels more like a private home than a hotel. A handful of rooms are in the main building, while others are dotted around the grounds in secluded locations, ensuring plenty of privacy."
