Deep in the very heart of Desenzano, surrounded by alleys and corners rich in history, poetry and intrinsic beauty, Antica Dimora Desenzano is a luxury guesthouse born thanks to antiquarian Cristina Cagliari's desire to bring her family home new life. With its enveloping lights, its fine antique furniture collections, precious pieces and works of art and its magical atmosphere designed to awaken emotions and desires, this exclusive charming hotel is the perfect destination for those who want to break away from the everyday hustle and bustle and immerse themselves in a corner of paradise. Five suites, light and airy, but also frivolous and prissy, designed to bring guests into a dimension beyond time and space. Each Antica Dimora suite is inspired by an 18th century character, whose portrait and original antique painting dominate the room: La Contessina, La Moretta, La Veneziana, Il Libertino and La Principessa. Each suite has its own personality, but all are furnished with attention to detail and evoke the same feeling in the guest who crosses the threshold: amazement. From La Contessina, dreamy and romantic, to La Moretta, which with its open spaces and exposed wooden beams reminds of Venetian periods brimming with intrigue. And then there is Il Libertino, a perfect match of delicacy and elegance in classic style, and the very baroque Veneziana to take a step back into one of the most opulent periods in the history of Italian art. And finally La Principessa, a spacious suite where exclusive comfort and elegance are in perfect balance. In all suites, on request, you can have an exclusive massage service with essential oils and beauty treatments for face and body. The meeting point of the house is the Atelier, a warm and enveloping fireplace in a refined room, intimate and cozy, with an open kitchen that is reached by walking between velvet chairs and ancient stone faces. A real workshop of taste, where tea time is a ritual and a moment of celebration of taste. In the morning, breakfast is served in an elegant sweet and savory buffet, offering a variety of homemade delicacies and pastries. For those looking for the utmost privacy, it is available the exclusive in-suite breakfast service. The Atelier also offers the exclusive picnic basket, to complement your trips out of town and enjoy the beauty of the lake. Guests can enjoy a multitude of experiences: from wine and food tours of the wineries, farms, oil mills and lemon groves of Lake Garda to cruises on the Benaco waters. Not to mention wellness treatments, mystical experiences, massages, cooking and baking lessons. Antica Dimora Desenzano is a never-ending experience where privacy and intimacy are guaranteed as well as the utmost attention to detail for a truly unforgettable experience.
