Park Hotel in peaceful setting
For romantic views over Lago di Garda (Lake Garda) and a peaceful location, consider staying at the Park Hotel (above) in Desenzano del Garda.
This immaculate hotel, furnished in traditional style with some antique pieces, is set in well-tended gardens on the Lungolago Cesare Battisti facing the lake.
The four star Park Hotel has 45 superior and 12 junior suites equipped with satellite television, mini bar and internet point. The hotel also provides car parking, room service, an indoor swimming pool and hydromassage baths.
The restaurant, looking out over the lake, serves a rich buffet breakfast and offers lunch and dinner menus that include Lombardian specialities and local produce, such as fish from the lake.
I stayed at the Park Hotel for a special occasion in a room with a double aspect that had views over the gardens and the lake. It was a relaxing and peaceful holiday, even though the hotel was just a five minute walk from the centre of Desenzano with its bars and shops.
To reach the Park Hotel leave the A4 at Desenzano del Garda and follow the signs to the centre of the town. When you reach the Lungolago Cesare Battisti the Park Hotel is at number 19 near the Piazza Malvezzi.
