Hotel in Lake Iseo

This country estate, sheathed in creeping ivy, has been converted into luxury Relais & Châteaux digs. Set on a rise overlooking the surrounding Franciacorta wine country and with a state-of-the-art spa (with Henri Chenot products) and gym, it's perfect for a pamper. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated and the grounds and public spaces impeccable.

You can round off the experience by dining at Leone Felice (meals €65 to €75).
