Many beautiful countryside style properties available just ask for details


An enchanting relais in Franciacorta that rises among rolling hills and vineyards, this country manor invites its guests to live an unforgettable experience, because the art of hospitality guarantees absolute and sublime pleasure of the senses.


You can savour the delights of the palate in the gastronomic restaurant LEONEFELICE or in the VISTALAGO Bistrò, and enjoy award-winning pizzas accompanied by excellent wines at LA FILIALE. If you want to experience a perfect remise-en-forme, the Espace Chenot Health Wellness Spa is the ideal place to be, thanks to its 2,000 square metres of pure vitality and wellness dedicated to those who want to restore their energy and regain their perfect physical and mental shape.



With its wonderful park, dotted with contemporary art sculptures, this country manor in Franciacorta is also the ideal location for unforgettable meetings and events. Located in the strategic location in Lombardy, just a few kilometres away from the romantic Lake Iseo, this manor is the ideal starting point for customised itineraries: from here, you can reach in a short time the main art cities of northern Italy such as Milan, Bergamo, Verona, and Venice.



The 38 rooms here are sophisticated secrets revealing themselves each time a Guest crosses the threshold, unveiling precious interiors, where every detail makes sense and gain value bonding with other decorative elements, in a continuous play of cross-references. Each room of this Lake Iseo accommodation is different from the other and is the result of a clever combination of love for beauty and attention to maximum comfort. The suites are 19, each one with its own history, forged by the harmonious silences of nature that envelops these enchanting places of Franciacorta. The Cabriolet Suite is one of the most romantic: just press a button and, as if by magic, the ceiling opens to the stars, while the moon peeps through wishing you sweet dreams. Be seduced by the elegant Suite Bellavista or the charming Suite Torre del Lago, worthy of one of the best luxury hotels in Italy. Add a kid’s Club and you have the ultimate in perfection. Reference 1824.


If you are planning to head somewhere with a touch of luxury and privacy, surrounded by vineyards and fields and close to the Tuscan sea, then we have the perfect destination. The estate's privileged location makes it easy for guests to quickly reach the nearby Tuscan natural parks and nature reserves famous for sightings of rare animals. The area is also uniquely rich in major archaeological sites, such as the Vulci Archaeological Park, and is endowed with marvellous museums, such as the City of Cosa Museum, alongside the excavations of the splendid Etruscan city, and the Tarquinia and Vetulonia museums. Close by you will also find gems like Sovana, Saturnia with its famous hot springs, and the medieval centre of Capalbio, now a jet-set holiday resort, EVEN Rome, Siena, and Florence are within driving distance.
