Nestled in 27 acres of leafy park, Lefay is an eco-sustainable resort sculpted into the mountainside. This is one of Italy's very best spa hotels, with personalised wellness programmes and treatments combining Traditional Chinese Medicine with the most advanced techniques of Western science. At the award-winning Spa, you'll find six saunas, a vast salt lake, infinity pool, steam room, ice pool, whirlpool tub, and indoor/outdoor heated pool, while at the restaurants the chefs work closely with nutritionists to provide healthy, ethical and sustainable cuisine. At this holistic temple dedicated to mind and body, it's easy to forget the wider world and retreat inside.

The resort was built using eco-sustainable materials with the lake panorama in mind - the views are mind-blowing.

The hotel is set into the mountainside above the picturesque town of Gargnano, on the western side of Lake Garda.
By plane: from London, there are direct flights to Verona and Brescia, both take around 2 hours. The hotel is a 1 hour 30 minute-drive from Verona and 50 minutes from Brescia. Free on-site parking.
