The Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli enjoys a fabulous position on the shores of Lake Garda. The villa dates back to 1892, when it was built as summer residence for the sons of the extremely affluent Faustino Feltrinelli, Italy's celebrated lumber magnate. The edifice was built according to the designs of architect Alberico Barbiano di Belgioioso in ornate Italian Liberty style, complete with castle like turrets. A century later, in 1997, the villa was purchased by hotelier Bob Burns, who extensively restored the property and transformed it in one of the world's most exclusive luxury hotels.

Of the 13 rooms situated in the main villa, seven feature frescoed ceilings painted in the 1890's by the Lieti brothers. Bathrooms are wonderfully spacious and fitted with marble floors, French porcelain bathtubs and separate shower units.
