What you need to know about the hotel

A sleek and sophisticated retreat in an old world setting

  • Italy is everywhere: olive wood for the floor, Italian walnut for the furniture and Verona marble for the bathroom
  • The exclusive Lefay SPA Method combines traditional Chinese medicine with Western science
  • Watching your weight? Lefay SPA Menu is a light and healthy detoxifying take on Mediterranean cuisine

Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda has an unusual approach to luxury. Basically, ostentation is out, and a healthy respect for body, soul and planet is in. A good example: All of the textiles, including bed linens, are made from natural cotton fiber with no chemical treatment.

The SPA is a big part of what makes the Lefay stand out. It’s got the usual massages, etc, but what you’ll remember are things like the World of Water and Fire—which sounds a bit New Age-y but is actually pretty cool. The water certainly is in abundance, with four indoor and outdoor pools and whirlpools.

Where is it and what's nearby

Wake up to the best of Mother Nature; the resort’s 11-hectare park overlooks Lake Garda

  • Dip into some of the world’s best olive oils at a tasting that highlights the fruits of local trees
  • A private boat trip on Lake Garda gives you a new vantage point to appreciate the region’s natural charm
  • Visit the ancient Limonaia to breathe in the citrus scents that have permeated the air in Lake Garda for centuries

Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda is situated in the Riviera dei Limoni (Riviera of Lemons) on the West Coast of Lake Garda, halfway between Milan and Venice. The resort, which sits on acres of hills and natural terraces, has been designed to take advantage of the stunning views. And it’s not called Riviera of Lemons for nothing; the citrusy aroma has inspired visitors such as D. H. Lawrence and J.W. Goethe to wax poetic about their sensory experiences.

There’s no urban jungle here—just a nature-infused escape with cultural attractions like the Vittoriale, one of the most visited museums in Italy, the unique lemon houses and plenty of gardens and parks.

How to enjoy Italian Lakes

The combination of high mountains framing the still waters of Italy’s northern lakes creates a place of unique perfection

  • South of Lake Maggiore are the Borromeo Islands, chock full of surprises like Baroque palaces, exotic plants and free-roaming animals
  • Hop a boat to Eremo di Santa Catarina del Sasso, whose cliff-hugging Hermitage is a spiritual and architectural powerhouse

The Italian lakes region proves that Italy is more than art and architecture. This chic district wows with a network of lakefront towns that entices celeb globetrotters to put down roots (we’re looking at you, George Clooney).

There are lakes throughout Italy, but when people talk about “The Lakes,” they mean this northern slice of heaven encompassing four major lakes: Como, Garda, Lugano and Maggiore. Lake Como gets all the love from celebrities, but don’t skip gems like the smaller Lake Orta, whose fairytale island houses a monastery.

This breathtaking region may be Italian in geography, but it feels like a whole other world. The living is more orderly and more formal—but with the same Italian flair, of course. Tourists flock here from all over, but locally, it’s a convenient weekend escape for the (very) wealthy of Milan. A fun game for tourists is debating which ultra-rich family has built the largest waterfront villa.

    When to visit Italian Lakes

    Winter is a cold, damp bummer. Spring and autumn are great times for a visit, as is summer, though you may have to cope with some big thunderstorms as the humid air hits the edges of the Alps.

  • In our opinion

    The best choice for the Lago di Garda area.

  • You need to know

    Take note if you’re prone to motion sickness: The resort is located on a winding (though scenic) road into the mountains.

  • We say

    The spa is the story here.
