With its waterfront setting, old-school grandeur and the chance of bumping into local resident George Clooney, this hotel couldn't sound any more appealing.
An hour's drive north of Milan, it has been run by the same family for the past 40 years and is ideal for a mini-moon getaway: think modern interiors sitting alongside art nouveau architecture.
Most sought after are the waterside rooms with their own balconies - breathtaking views of the lake guaranteed. Alternatively, head to the glass-fronted T Spa (try the ESPA Grand Detox) where the views are even better. Or grab a lounger on T Beach, the hotel's own lakeside stretch of sand. If you're feeling adventurous, take a dip in its famous floating pool (submerged in the lake, its temperature peaks at a chilly 15°C), or take a tour in a vintage '60s 'water limo' (a Venetian period motor boat). Dock at Bellagio, a village famed for its ancient buildings and gelato.
