Locanda Agli Angeli

Top choice hotel in Gardone Riviera

It's a perfect hillside Lago di Garda bolthole: a beautifully restored, rustic-chic locanda (inn) with a kidney-shaped pool, a terrace dotted with armchairs and Italian-meets-Balinese decor. Ask for room 29 for a balcony with grandstand lake and hill views, but even the smaller bedrooms are full of charm.

The restaurant (hours vary) is renowned for classic Lago di Garda dishes. The ample breakfast is gratis to guests.
