Set on an enchanted village on Lake Garda, the Quellenhof Luxury Resort in Lazise is an oasis for those who need to switch off
Find out a place overlooking one of the most beautiful and photographed villages in Veneto, in an ideal position to set out to explore an area rich in beauty, history, art and nature.
The Quellenhof Luxury Resort in Lazise is perfect for a luxurious relaxation holiday on Lake Garda. Breathtaking views, architectural taste, excellent food and tranquillity are the ingredients of this unique Italian-style getaway destination.
Whether you want to take a rejuvenating break, you will hardly find disappointing the five-star hotel equipped with a 2,000 m² wellness area.
You can spend a few days in one of the suites and take advantage of your stay for a trip to the lakeshore villages. Or, if you are short on time, log in daily and treat yourself to the elegant spa.
Lazise, as well as the gorgeous neighbour villages, is a year-round wonder, not just during the high season. Here's what you need to know before booking a holiday on Lake Garda. In complete relaxation.
Beautiful all year round: what to do on holiday around Lake Garda
The scenery is spectacular all year round: olive groves, cypresses and palm trees, a quiet atmosphere and the ever-present view of Lake Garda on the horizon.
A wide range of tourist offerings, from cultural proposals to outdoor sports activities, make this Veneto portion a true gem. Even the most seasoned travellers will find something to suit their teeth.
The smart move? Go beyond spring or summer for your visit. Garda has much to give and show: experience it away from the hot season for an authentic, relaxing holiday and discover its more exclusive and local side.
Think of a fun bike or Vespa tour from village to village along sunny (and somewhat winding) country roads. You can rent your vehicle at the Quellenhof Luxury Resort and reach Punta San Vigilio, a wonderful peninsula jutting out over the lake that offers a stunning panorama.
Come early in the morning to avoid the crowd. Or at sunset, so as not to miss one of the most beautiful views the area has to offer. In summer, take a dip in La Baia delle Sirene: you get to the bay by crossing olive and cypress groves. Bring your four-legged darling with you: dogs on a leash are permitted access.
From Lazise you can quickly reach the beautiful Torri del Benaco, Bardolino or the historic centre of Sirmione. Along the way, you'll meet many small bays and coves nestled along the coast. Otherwise, drive through Valpolicella's hills, a renowned wine-producing area, and drop in some wineries to taste the local production.
Trekking trails also abound. Whether looking for scenic routes or easy lake-view walks, you'll have no trouble finding the most suitable itinerary near the Quellenhof Luxury Resort. Ask the reception desk for advice: the hotel organises weekly guided hikes.
The most exclusive experience to ask for? A gourmet picnic on board an iconic Riva boat.
Relaxing holiday on Lake Garda: discovering Lazise
Lazise is a small town full of charm and character on Lake Garda. Despite its size, it's among the most visited destinations in Italy. Due to the beauty of the delightful historic centre and its "strategic" location, which makes it ideal as a base for an itinerant trip, Lazise registers a large flow of tourists and travellers every year.
From here, you can quickly drive to the main tourist destinations and attractions in northern Italy — Verona is just a half-hour drive away. Milan and Venice are easily reachable, too, and Gardaland, one of Italy's most famous amusement parks, is only ten minutes away.
Although being a tourist-oriented town, Lazise has a proud soul: after all, it's the oldest municipality in Italy.
The historic centre, surrounded by medieval walls, is just a few-minute stroll from the Quellenhof Luxury Resort, although, if you don't feel like walking, the hotel shares a free shuttle bus with its guests.
Lazise is a miniature village. Take your time and visit it at your leisure: after all, we are discussing a relaxing holiday.
Sit at a bar near the marina for a romantic and picturesque break, and sip a glass of Bardolino while the reflection of the little church of San Nicolò sways placidly in the lake waters.
Wander around lanes, streets and squares in the shadow of the Castello Scaligero. Every fortress on Lake Garda has a fairytale look, and this one certainly makes no exception.
Walk along the elegant lakeside promenade to the oldest part of Lazise, a district featuring ancient buildings that used to be surrounded by ramparts protecting their gardens.
In the evening, return to the hotel for a gourmet dinner in the refined panoramic restaurant. Even better at sunset. The spectacle, of course, is taken care of by Lake Garda.
