Locanda San Vigilio, Lake Garda, Italy
This delightful, family-run inn has a fabulous location on a promontory that juts out into the waters of the lake. Interiors ooze history: antiques and family heirlooms dot the premises, 16th century prints line the walls, and thick rugs add a cosy touch. The setting is divine: a charming, cobbled pathway snakes its way to the waterfront locanda, where ducks patter about the romantic pier, which is home to a delightful café and bar - it's a gorgeous spot to soak up the lake views with a drink in hand. The property is nestled in a five-acre park home to cypress trees and olive groves, with a delightful swimming pool for guests (a second is open to non-residents) and an excellent lakefront restaurant serving delicious Italian dishes.

The rooms and suites are furnished with the owners' private collection of antiques - you'll find 16th-century maps, and glasses and plates that belonged to the House of Savoy. We love Room 5, which is on the second floor of the main hotel building, and has its own loggia and a lovely view of the harbour.
