Antica Dimora Desenzano

Prepare to be enchanted by this splendid resort located in the heart of Desenzano, a lively locality on the shore of the magnificent waters of Lake Garda.

Antica Dimora, the original residence of the Cagliari family, is a place of rare beauty.
It’s much more than a hotel. Entering this house, you will discover a universe of beauty and harmony. Cristina, the owner, is an antiquarian and passionate artist before a hotelier, and her guests can enjoy an outstanding collection of antique furnishings, works of art and precious objects. Are you ready to taste the tea in one of her adorable cups?
They are all unique pieces collected over the years.

La Principessa offers aide spaces, airy and light, where comfort and elegance are in perfect harmony. The refined lounge is characterized by an intense blue sofa and precious crimped curtains that lighten the atmosphere and welcome the guests like clouds.

On a boat on the waters of Benaco
Do not leave Desenzano without experiencing a cruise on the waters of Garda, where all you will have to do is to free your thoughts and go aboard to enjoy a boat trip. Pamper yourself in the sun and let yourself be rocked by the movement of the water. The finale at sunset should not be missed, with the romantic background music and a delicious aperitif.

Staying in Desenzano del Garda

Desenzano del Garda sits on the southwestern shore of Lake Garda, enjoying blue waters and a moving panorama with majestic alpine peaks. Desenzano and its nearby towns and villages became a favourite vacation spot for Venice, Verona, and Austria travellers.
The town still retains its charming and aristocratic pose, and it’s a perfect starting point for visiting Lake Garda, Verona, the wine districts of Valpolicella and Franciacorta.
It’s also a perfect stop between Venice and Milan.

Every trip we take contributes to build our own life story.

A story that is a patchwork of encounters, experiences and memories made while traveling. And just like fabric scraps in a quilt, every trip we take, no matter how big or long, holds its own special place in our life and contributes to shape who we are.
