HOTEL LAURIN, SALÒ (BS)

Categories , ,

Villa Isabella, now 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. Surrounded by a charming garden with sweet-smelling flowerbeds, the Laurin offers a beautiful view on Garda Lake.

The villa was built at the beginning 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.
