Villa Isabella, now named Hotel Laurin, is one of the most well-preserved examples of art nouveau in Italy,
and offers a perfect blend of history and contemporary comfort.
The villa was built at the start of the 20th century by the Simonini family, who turned it into their private residence. Majestic and elegant, it has frescoes by Bertolotti and Landi, large wrought iron spirals and refined wooden inlay. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was based in the premises during the Social Republic and in the 1960s Franco Rossi, the son of local hoteliers, bought it and turned it into a hotel, naming it Hotel Laurin. The Laurin is surrounded by a charming garden with sweet-smelling flowerbeds and shaded areas where it is possible to dine outdoors as early as spring.
A beautiful swimming pool enhances the garden and can be enjoyed throughout the day, from breakfast time through to evening and the time for sipping before-dinner drinks. Soak up the magical atmosphere of a bygone era throughout the hotel, be it in the reception area, bedrooms, meeting rooms or dining room.

Gorgeous Lake Garda property, a step back in time with great service to match.
The building is amazing and timeless. The furniture and fittings really suit the property. The gardens are lovely and the attention to detail is wonderful.

A combination of beautifully preserved original features throughout the building, together with very tastefully decorated rooms. The staff could not have been more attentive, yet still maintaining a perfectly relaxed atmosphere. Ten out of ten! A fabulous hotel that really made our holiday to Italy that little bit more special.
