Surrounded by brawny mountains a mere stone's throw from Lake Garda – the largest lake in Italy and a popular holiday destination – Vivere Arco allows you to choose from a number of suites with kitchenettes, their own private entrance and access to the veranda which overlooks the swimming pool.
The glass and wood architecture creates a natural but warm vibe and it is easy to feel at home when you get into your super bed. When the weather cools - and cool it must burrowed as you are in the mountainside - then there is a communal living room with a fireplace and fancy stereo. Wellness treatments are done at the hands of the trained naturopath - who is kind of like a modern-day cunning woman only more attractive, nicer, and a trained beautician. Wine groupies will be bowled over by the bottles made from the owner’s local vineyards - the merlot is particularly cheeky so I hear.
