The Magnificent Villa Cortine Hotel in Sirmione, Italy
I have stayed at every star level hotel there is. I even stayed at some guest houses and hostels when I visited Tanzania in Africa. This was my second trip to Italy and my first time visiting Lake Garda, Italy. I have always been very impressed by the hospitality at the hotels I have stayed at in this country. The Villa Cortine Palace is definitely in the top few hotels I have ever stayed anywhere.
The photos I post and what I write can not do this little piece of heaven justice. I truly felt like I was in paradise while I stayed there. They definitely provided the best service that I have ever encountered and the grounds are some of the nicest I have encountered. The view is incredible as the hotel is set high up above the town of Sirmione.
Being a frequent traveler I have realized that I am pickier about my accommodations then I wanted to believe as I can usually find several things wrong even at the four and five star hotels I've been a guest at. I cannot think of a single complaint regarding this hotel. The food was amazing, the staff was extremely friendly, and the view was incredible throughout the hotel. My bed was very comfortable and the property is very secure. When you come through the gate you must be buzzed in either through the front or back of the property so one should feel very safe at this hotel.
The location is also very central and just a few minutes from Scaliger Castle. The price is quite reasonable for what you receive and if you book through the hotel's website they often have good prices available. I stayed there in September and the rates were quite a bit less and if I had stayed there between June and August. If you are someone who enjoys the finer things in life, this hotel could be the right one for you! I really felt like I was in a museum when strolling through the hotel and around the beautiful and expansive grounds.
The following four photos were taken from the balcony in my room:
Below is the lovely breakfast room:
I am not a breakfast eater unless I'm in Italy. Omelets were prepared fresh. One can order fresh coffee or cappuccino.
This beautiful structure and garden were on the grounds of the hotel:
Here are a few other photos I took on the hotel grounds:
I found this beautiful garden on the walkway down to the hotel's private beach:
The pool has a beautiful view of Lake Garda
Guests can eat breakfast or dinner in this area:
The two photos below were taken in the hotel bar/lounge where you can have dinner and snacks throughout the day.
I am practicing using a tripod and timer to take photos. I decided to take photos of myself in some of the beautiful rooms around the hotel which is full of gorgeous antiques.
I was hesitant to post a photo of my nice big room as it was a little messy, but I loved the chandelier over the bed!
The following two photos are of the hotel's private beach and restaurant:
I will leave you with just one of the lovely sunrises I saw:
