Shortly after arriving at Relais Corte Paradiso for your dream Italian holiday, you will completely understand the use of the word “Paradise” in the title of this grand residence. It is one of the few historic luxury homes available on or near Lake Garda, which is 2.5 km away.
This 17th Century estate emits an enchanting aristocratic atmosphere that seduces all your senses. You can quite easily imagine yourself on the set of a movie, back in the days when love was about honour and family ties. In-fact the estate is owned by the Albertini family whose rich history can be traced back a thousand years, with many powerful unions taking place right here.

The tall hedges, the age-old trees and the secret corners of the large lush green park that surrounds the house invite you to take a serene stroll and admire the estate from many different angles. You are only 2.5 kilometres from the beautiful Lake Garda so you can take a walk or drive to the enchanting lake shores and discover many charismatic lakeside towns. Of course you may just prefer to relax by the pool on the estate with a nice glass of something instead and enjoy the tranquillity and company of your loved one.
You may be pleased to hear that you can combine romance and golf on this holiday since right next door is The Golf Club Paradiso del Garda - an 18 hole course over 800,000 square metres designed by renowned America Architect Jim Fazio. It winds along the sweet morainic hills of the Lake Garda region, interrupted by striking views of the Monte Baldo and blue vistas of the lake. Even better news is that as a guest at the hotel you will receive a 20% discount for using the course. And then after lunch, there is also the Wellness Centre next door where you can enjoy a sauna, an aromatic bath, various treatments and much more (for a fee).
The reception is in a beautiful entrance hall with three arches which leads into a cosy and green atrium from where there is access to the apartments. Much care was taken during the renovation of this impressive building from the 1700's to ensure that as many of the original features as possible remained.
Corte Paradiso consists of 15 modern and convenient apartments. The apartments are located either on the ground floor with a small garden or on the 1st floor with a nice view of the main building or golf course. They are all spacious and decorated with either classic antique or modern furniture. The facilities in the apartments include satellite TV, air conditioning, heating, a telephone, a safety deposit box, internet access and a hairdryer. The apartments have a kitchenette (each has closet kitchen), microwave, coffee maker, kettle and fridge. In the 3 bedoom apartments there is even a dishwasher. Prices include use of the sofa bed in the living room to sleep two extra people.
There are staff that speak English and German so if your Italian is a bit rusty, you won't have a problem being understood. Also on site is a laundry service (for a fee) and the possibility of ordering fresh bread for breakfast. Each week there is a wine tasting event (included in the price) and a gourmet dinner evening (for a surcharge).
