A year round destination. The major tourist season is during the summer (July and August). However, in terms of weather, the months just before and after the busy tourist season may be the best time to head to L'Albereta.

L’Albereta is the perfect place to either relax at the spa in the hotel or take advantage of the endless activities on offer. From windsurfing or boat rides on the breathtaking Lago Iseo, weaving down the country lanes on a bicycle to explore the neighbouring villages, taking a tour of a vineyard on horseback, or hiking in the surrounding hills.
There are 57 elegant rooms and suites decorated with warm tones, vintage furniture and precious marble in the bathrooms, providing maximum comfort and luxury. A number of rooms boast an intimate fireplace or four-poster bed creating a magical atmosphere. Almost every room has a private balcony or terrace stretching out amongst the verdant vineyards, tall pines and fragrant limes of the L'Albereta park.

The most famous room in the hotel is room 404, the 'Cabriolet Suite', which represents a truly original concept: a convertible hotel suite! Press a button by the four poster bed and, as if by magic, the roof of the room will open up. And your new ceiling will be the star-filled sky. The suite also boasts a little private terrace with views over the slopes of Franciacorta, where you can enjoy your breakfast the following day. During the annual Perseid meteor shower, known as the tears of San Lorenzo, the suite is particularly sought after for an unforgettable night under the stars.

L'Albereta is a lovely option for those wanting a break away from the crowds. I think that it is perfect for a long weekend in Spring or late September/early October. There is no outdoor pool here, so I think it could be a little too hot in peak summer without the option to cool off. The gourmet restaurant Leone Felice is fantastic and definitely a must during your stay.

Located in the heart of the Lombardy wine area Alberea is the perfect place to relax and unwind and indulge in the fantastic food and wine on offer. Experience gourmet heaven in the 2* michelin restaurant - make sure you are at the end of the evening and make sure you are watching the painting..! The Lombardy area is great to explore - why not do a day trip up to Lake Garda and take a boat out on the lake. The hotel is also a retreat for those looking for great spa packages.
