VILLA SOSTAGA, TIMELESS ATMOSPHERE - When beauty meets elegance
A silence characterised by a light breeze which caresses the leaves of the trees and by Lake Garda which with its stateliness, captures the gaze and... the heart. The Boutique Hotel Villa Sostaga is this: pure emotion and elegance with never an end unto themselves. Reality repainted with the colours of a dream...
The building, dating back to the end of the nineteenth century, was desired by Count Giuseppe Feltrinelli who, in these charming locations, intended to create a hunting residence in the middle of a wood of 40 hectares, situated on a hill just a few kilometres from Gargnano, one of the most enchanting locations of Lake Garda. Successively, the architect Alberico Belgiojoso transformed Villa Sostaga into a cosy summer residence, which accommodated many distinguished characters.
How it all began...
In 2004, after a life spent in the world of motors as founder and team manager of the auto motive team Euro team, which took part in the 24 Hour Le Mans race and for several years in the DTM championship – first as the official Alfa Romeo team and successively with Opel –, Gabriele Seresina took management of the estate belonging to the Counts Feltrinelli restructuring it and restoring it to its ancient splendour. In May of the following year, the Boutique Hotel Villa Sostaga opened its doors to a holiday experience which still today combines a warm welcome, comfort, finesse in its furnishings – carefully chosen by the house patron, signora Gabriella, a great expert of fashion – and a phenomenal gastronomy; the latter, “legacy” of Grandmother Martina, who was the personal cook of the unforgotten poet Gabriele D’Annunzio. Her recipes, just like her ancient remedies and sublime alcoholic preparations, have survived over a succession of decades up to today.
Tranquillity and charm. Celestial panoramas and refined furnishings. Gentle notes of comfort to etch on the “music sheet” of your heart.
In synthesis, the stay in the 19 rooms of Villa Sostaga and in the Dépendance Meridiana guarantees ideal rest after extraordinary days spent on the wonderful banks of Lake Garda.
Space, brightness, silence, intimacy, relaxation, endless charm. Everything together, without renouncing anything.
The elegant and comfortable restaurant is the perfect location to enjoy a delicious meal overlooking Lake Garda. You can savour dishes from the gourmet and traditional Garda cuisine, fruit of the creativity of the chef, who knows how to conquer even the most demanding taste buds.
The Veranda, the Liberty dining room and the Clarabella salon are elegant surroundings - whose atmosphere is made precious by designer elements. In spring and in summer, guests can enjoy the gentle and pleasant breezes which caress the well cared garden and large park of 40 hectares.
Fun, nature, sport, thrills...
A treasure chest of fantastic opportunities. This is how we could define Lake Garda, on whose splendid banks you can practise thrilling water sports, take part in bike tours, discover the mountain paths by means of marvellous hikes in uncontaminated nature and, for those who love golf, the chance to discover the numerous golf clubs in the area.
Furthermore, you can discover and participate in many cultural events, festivals and social events with which you can render vivacious your holidays on the gentle banks of Garda.
Furthermore, the hotel has created a delightful corner in the pool area dedicated to all those who love to immerse themselves in a mini pool Spa Jacuzzi® at the end of the day and enjoy a breathtaking view over the lake.
