A glamorous, intimate, Sirmione hotel overlooking spectacular Lake Garda - includes breakfast, a bottle of champagne, dinner on one night and suite options

Just steps from the fairy tale-like Scaligero Castle, the welcoming and intimate Relais La Speranzina in the fortified town of Sirmione wows with chic design elements, a remarkably good restaurant, and lashings of luxury. Most thrilling, though, are the to-die-for views of Lake Garda – the largest of the Italian lakes that has inspired artists, writers, and poets for centuries.

Set in a stone building that blends in seamlessly with the lakeside surrounds, there’s enough here to keep you rooted to the spot. Facilities include an inviting sun terrace overlooking the dazzling lake, a wine cellar that’s well-stocked with niche labels and valuable vintages and a gorgeous dining space for as many gourmet Italian dishes as you’re willing to try.

The accommodation is just as lovely. There are just three guestrooms (two are suites with spa-like extras) that all create a real sense of sanctuary. Factor in a high level of service from the eager-to-please hosts and the fact that you’re within easy reach of Lombardy’s most visit-worthy towns, and you might find yourself never wanting to leave this dreamy little hideaway.

Highlights

You’ll be staying in the historic heart of Sirmione – the so-called Jewel of Lake Garda located on the tip of a long peninsula. Must-dos in this medieval walled town include hitting the historic centre for its amazing gelaterias, checking out the thermal springs that bubble up from the lake bed, getting wonderfully lost in the maze of tiny pedestrianised streets, and gazing at the brilliantly preserved 13th-century Scaligero Castle.

Further Lake Garda thrills include visiting La Valtenesi for its tiny villages, Moniga del Garda for its castle, Desenzano for its high-end boutiques, and Manerba del Garda for its frescoed churches. Should time allow, take time to stake out superstar villas, ride the famous Malcesine-Monte Baldo Cable Car, and top up your tan on any of the wonderful lakeside beaches.
