Imagine having lunch at the edge of a lake in a five star resort at the brink of the Alps. Pretty much another one of those James Bond moments that so frequently come up on the site. What can we say, he’s a pinguo. Anyway, there are a handful of resorts scattered about Lago di Como in Northern Italy. Our pick however, hands down, is Il Sereno Hotel. Setting aside our watering taste buds for fast cars, ultra-luxury yachts, and personal submarines… we also have a thing for clean lines, modern furnishings, and absolutely amazing views. And Il Sereno far beyond exceeds our expectations on all three fronts.
Whether you’re having brunch with mimosas on the hotel deck, swimming in the pool, or laying down on the plush king sized bed.. the breathtaking views are everywhere. The placement of the hotel is simply spectacular, and the hotel itself is just fantastic. The only thing that’ll one of the Il Sereno Hotel would be a permanent villa in the exact same spot furnished in the exact same way. Which, now that we think of it, doesn’t sound like a bad idea to add to the wishlist. Photos via Sereno Hotels.
