Hotel Locanda del Benaco, Salò, Lake Garda
This stylish boutique hotel is spread out over two peach and cream buildings on the waterfront of Salò, a smart yachtie town on the western shore of the lake. Iron, glass and concrete dominate the minimalist interiors, exuding a sophisticated ambience and a decidedly modern vibe. There's an excellent restaurant with tables spilling out onto the waterfront, attracting hotel guests as well as those in the know. Service is friendly and welcoming - Gianni Briarava and his son Federico run the restaurant, while his wife Cristina greets hotel guests. It's the perfect choice for young couples seeking a boutique hideaway and top-notch cuisine in one of the most attractive lakefront towns.
