Villa Cortine Palace Hotel

Villa Cortine Palace Hotel

Sirmione, Italy

Perched on top of a hill in central Sirmione, just a five-minute walk from the historic old town, Villa Cortine Palace Hotel is housed in an elegant 19th-century building set within expansive private parkland. Behind the wrought-iron gates and Doric columns, you’ll find marble floors, high ceilings, and original frescoes, with most of the 54 spacious rooms and suites boasting at least a partial view of the lake’s glittering waters.

There are four eateries within the hotel, ranging from fine dining among the peaceful gardens to an informal grill kitchen on the beach. Within the gardens you’ll find a large heated swimming pool and a tennis court. You can also make use of the hotel’s private bathing jetty on the lake, open during the summer months.


We think this hotel has an excellent central location in Sirmione, while also providing lots of space for relaxing when you’re not out exploring. We also love the historic details in the hotel’s building.
