A gorgeous period estate close to Lake Iseo surrounded by the vineyards of Franciacorta.
This 19th-Century estate combines a luxurious vineyard setting with a medical and wellness spa that goes deep beneath the surface. The Espace Chenot Spa is one of the best wellness centres there are for the serious-minded when it comes to overhauling your health – guests on a dedicated detox or weight loss programme undergo in-depth analysis followed by a personalised meal plan and comprehensive treatments to effect long-lasting change. If you’re after a more relaxed wellness holiday, choose from a menu of relaxing massages and radiance-enhancing facials and simply drink in the stunning vineyard views.
Transformed from a 19th-Century private home, this retreat is a sumptuous place to switch off and enjoy the finer things in life. Sit out on the terrace at VistaLago Bistro for magnificent views of Lake Iseo surrounded by mountains as you dine on regional Italian dishes. The décor is grand throughout and while spa robes are a norm at breakfast and lunch, dinner is worth dressing up for. The food is as exceptional as you might expect from a Relais & Châteaux hotel in a flourishing wine region – the hotel’s main restaurant, LeoneFelice, was recognised for its food and excellent wine list in 2018’s Michelin Guide. There’s also a dedicated wellness restaurant, Ristorante Benessere, reserved for spa guests who prefer to keep temptation out of sight.
Rooms are suitably lavished with antique furnishings and fine upholstery. They differ in shape and size and have views of the vineyards or distant glimpses of Lake Iseo, but the most sought-after room is the Cabriolet Suite. As you get comfortable in the four-poster bed, press a button to send a ceiling panel back, revealing the candy floss clouds in the day or a twinkling night sky.
