Italy is an amazing place for holidays, especially if you choose the right hotel. If you wish to visit Lake Garda, in the north of the country, there is one amazing address: Acquaviva Del Garda Wellness, Resort & Spa. Close to Sirmione, Maria Callas preferred holiday place, you will have a beautiful stay.
This hotel is definitely the finding of the summer. From the outside you will not see the treasures that this place has to offer. Located in Desenzano del Garda, it is one of the finest places in the south part of the Lake Garda. The entry hall of the hotel is already very promising. The hotel decoration is done with a lot of good taste. Modern lines and colors blend brilliantly well with antiques. Some places look more like a museum, others like an exhibition hall. Noble materials like stone, marble and wood are used in the bedrooms and the alleys.
The personel is efficient, friendly and speaks quite a few languages. The wellness center provides all essential massage and beauty treatments. There is also a nice interior swimming pool that you could enjoy just before a massage. Outside, you will appreciate the natural beauty of the hotel private beach by the lake shores or the sophisticated exterior swimming pool. It is probably one of the most clean Swimming pools I have ever seen. Water controls are done several times a day and every person willing to swim needs to wear a bath hat otherwise he cannot enter the water.
There is an international clientele but also a local italian one. So you definitely have an Italian feeling. The hotel was built in 2007 and its conception was done with all modern characteristics and yet respecting the natural surroundings. Sirmione is at 2 steps from this magnificent hotel and you can discover hidden treasures. You will understand why Maria Callas decided to have a summer house there. The landscape is purely unreal. From Roman times, there was always a good micro-climate in this region, which gave to Lake Garda a special place in the heart of Italians.
At Aquaviva del Garda there is a private parking (a fee of 5€ per day is requested), free wifi that works in all parts of the hotel and the main reception desk can give you valuable information about what to do in the region. The room service is very qualitative. There is no menu, so you basically just call and say what you would like to have. They will do their best to please you.
To summarize, Acquaviva del Garda is an amazing place for holidays. Either for a short weekend or a full week, you will enjoy the Dolce Vita that only Italians know the secret. You can check the hotel website for more information. Do not hesitate to contact them directly for any request.
