Top Secret

Rocco and Gina – the two adorable mascots and welcoming party of Villa Sostaga no matter what time you arrive. Consummate professionals in their own right with a regal charm about them, they set the bar for the kind of experience in hospitality you will have while staying in the hotel.


Gabriella and Gabriele Seresina, after having had distinguished careers in fashion and motor racing respectively, fulfilled their calling back to the lake and purchased the villa from the famous Feltrinelli family in 2004. After careful renovations over time, while still maintaining its ancient splendour, the villa is now an established magnificent hotel that is run with the addition of their son, Francesco Seresina, who hopes to take the history and glory of Villa Sostaga into the new generation.

The Review

To be frank, Villa Sostaga doesn’t feel like a hotel. Entering the villa itself, you will feel as if you are experiencing a life of class in a country-side luxury house. That is what the Serenisas want you to notice.


The heart of the villa isn’t built with modern materials – it has 250 year old foundations that automatically evoke the grandeur of its history. With roots tracing back to the famous Count Giuseppe Feltrinelli, to family culinary connections with the unforgotten poet Gabriele D’Annunzio, Villa Sostaga is rich in art and culture too. The professional eye of Gabriella Seresina has elevated the interior artistry of the villa into a very chic and timeless design. 


Villa Sostaga is a place of serenity where you wake up in the morning to spectacular sunrises, sounds of birds chirping in nature and the song of the bells ringing from the church towers of the surrounding towns below.  You have breakfast on the patio with impeccable scenery and you can take quiet walks down to towns like Gargnano where you can treat yourself to a vegan gelato or charter a boat ride or ferry to explore other parts of the grand lake.


With the breath-taking views of the surrounding mountain landscapes, carpeted by the vastness of Lake Garda, there is no arguing why this villa is chosen time and time again for what it has to visually and emotionally offer its guests. When you spend time in Villa Sostaga, you suddenly realise more important things than the mundane trivialities of the world we live in today. Time slows down, and nature takes you over with her beauty. Villa Sostaga is designed to augment that transition you make from a fast-paced life into a majestic paradise of authentic comfort.
