Luxury Holidays At Villa Cortine Palace

It's difficult to imagine a more romantic location than that of the privately-owned retreat of Villa Cortine Palace, on Lake Garda's tiny Sirmione peninsula. The scene is set as you approach through the winding, cobbled streets of the historic town, up through the gates and into the fragrant gardens, (among northern Italy's greatest private parks), dotted with fountains, mature trees and vibrant blooms. The original villa exudes Neo Classical grandeur, complemented by beautiful paintings, frescoes and furnishings; in contrast, the more contemporary wing boasts its own stylish charm – with many of the guest room balconies enjoying views of the lake that inspired Tennyson and Shelley.
