We spent a week at the hotel and the staff really looked after us. The hotel is right on the lake and about 3 minutes drive to the beach (or ten minutes by bike, which is supplied by the hotel). Every single member of staff treated us very well, right from the maintenance guy to Sylvia on the desk, Sonja... More

Within 1 week we stayed in 3 hotels and this hotel was one of the best. The members of staff were able to speak English,however we enjoyed practicing our Italian. The Interior Design of this hotel is unique and definitely Charming;) We absolutely loved it and knew that we will definitely be back. We had a room with the view... More

After staying in Rome for 4 days in a cosy and cheap B&B, we were ready to relax in Sabaudia, and this was the best place to get some rest! everything was so clean and so white! our room was cleaned 2 times a day, including new towels. Whenever we wanted to lay down by the lake to tan, they... More

The rooms need some love, but they are clean. The view from the balconly makes you feel that you are on Holidays. The management makes sure that the tables are decorated very nicely at dinner. The terrasse and the garden are just beautiful. We went there with our kids, but i wouldn´t recommend it for families. It is more for... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 kids aged 5 and 8 stayed in this great hotel for a 4 day week-end in early August. The structure is well disposed for relax. The garden/park is well kept and equipped and has direct lake access. A free shuttle service is available to visit a nice sea establishment nearby (chair and umbrella... More

I was here for a wedding, so I have not really experienced the rooms (I did not overnight there) but the location is really excellent, the organization and the remarkable and the restaurant is very good indeed.

The hotel has a beautiful and relaxing garden by the lake. The staff is very kind. Services are great: chair and umbrella available on the beach, bicycles - everything without charge. The location is also great: not close to the city center, near to the beach. Good breakfast served in the garden. But we had a bad luck: our room... More

We are from Germany and stayed this year the end of May almost a week at this fantastic place. The name doesnt promise too much. It is really fantastic. Bella, bella, bella. Once you drive in the surroundings coming from the countryside you dont expect an exquise place like this. Getting at the entrance, with all its white curtins, you... More

We arrived at this amazing spot and felt immediately very welcome. We got lots of documentation of the national park we wanted to visit. They gave us info on hiking trails,... In the morning after an extremely quiet night they treat you to a lovely Italian breakfast. A place you have to visit when you are in the area!

Very elegant, very kind service, but above all amazing and magic location on one of Sabaudia's lakes. Perfect to rest and to be inspired. But also very close to the sea, and with very good breakfast and dinner. The selection of furniture, its special architecture and its distinctive white/green dominant colors make this place hardly forgettable.
