Experience all the beauty of Italian country life with a stay at the majestic Du Lac et Du Parc Grand Resort. Set deep inside the magnificent and lush parkland of Riva Del Garda, the hotel is just steps from the shores of Lake Garda. This is the perfect location to unwind in peace and serenity, as the property looks out onto the breathtaking lake and adjacent mountains, accompanied by the vivid greens of the forest.
With a wide selection of sport facilities to choose from within the resort, including tennis courts, sailing and two outdoor swimming pools, and a wealth of scenery to explore on foot or bike, you’ll never be short of new things to try. After a long day of adventure, wind down in the spa, which offers a Finnish sauna, a Mediterranean bath and steaming hot tub.
And don’t let the contemporary façade fool you; this resort has a lot of history. Originally the summer home of Count von Torresani, its central structure has been standing for over 150 years, so you can live the high life in a setting that’s fit for nobility – and the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence that it won for itself.
Each room is designed to embody modern tranquility and comfort. The contemporary and colorful Parc rooms overlook the private park and hold an en-suite bathroom with a tub, plus a satellite and Sky TV.
There are several eateries within the resort, including an à la carte restaurant, Du Parc Restaurant, which serves both local and Mediterranean specialties, accompanied by a buffet of vegetables, salads, cheeses and more. The wonderful Capannina Pizza & Grill is open May to September, and the new Molo44 lounge bar and bistro has you lunching and dining on the wooden decking among the parkland. Come evening, it’s the place to go for exquisite cocktails and live piano music.
The hotel is set in a 19th-century garden in the breathtaking private park of Grand Trentino, which is home to over 200 species of flowers and plants. Sitting pretty on the coast of the enchanting Lake Garda, this is a truly peaceful oasis.
How to Get There
I had very high expectations, and was very much looking forward to our stay at Du Lac et Du Parc.
My husband and I just checked out and we were extremely disappointed with the way we were received at Du Lac et du Parc.
Yes, the parc is beautiful and the place is none to second, BUT, how can this hotel claim to be such high level of hospitality when 1/ the room we were allocated was in desperate need of renovation and quite frankly very dusty (please refer to photos from my review), 2/ staff are rarely pleasant, perhaps understaffed but keep you waiting for 20 minutes to get your drink, and ignore you when you ask them for help and 3/there is NO lift from reception to the rooms and many stairs (can anyone believe this for this kind of hotel???)
I would say if you are looking for the premium experience like we were, just set your expectations right, because you may be allocated the nicer rooms, but you may also receive the poor service we did.
We were very disappointed by Du Lac et du Parc.
The best for family travel!!Wonderful staff.Large area with excellent park!Tasty breakfasts!Thanku very much for the behavier on the personal in miniclub!!!Exellent free parking!! A place to charge an electric car is very convenient.
My husband and I stayed with our two children for 3 nights as part of a longer trip across Northern Italy. We stayed in the suites and were lucky enough to have a room with a jacuzzi. The room came with 2 separate bedrooms, a living area with dining table, bathroom, large balcony and small kitchen area with hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. All pots, pans, plates, utensils etc were also included. We found this really helpful with our children as it meant we could go to the supermarket in the shopping precinct across the road and make simple meals - ideal after lots of restaurant meals! We ate in the bar/bistro for lunch and the prices were quite expensive - a minestrone soup was around 14 euros - it was delicious but prices were high. We didn’t try the Aria live restaurant as it was 40 euros for an adult and 25 for a child and to be honest the kids were happy to eat in our suite or go to a local restaurant for a slice of pizza.
The breakfast selection was fair, I enjoyed the yoghurt bar and range of granola, seeds etc to sprinkle on top. The children loved the mini pancakes with Nutella! There was all the usual eggs, bacon, cereals, pastries you would expect.
The Mini club was a real hit, particularly the climbing wall and soft play area. The outdoor pools weren’t open in April but we were able to use the indoor pool. Reception had told us kids under 6 couldn’t use this pool but we soon realised there were lots of babies and toddlers in there. Something to be aware of if you are going out of season as this could be a rule they tighten up on and you might be disappointed if you can’t enjoy a swim. Robes and towels all included. We were also delighted by the free flip flops and hessian bags to carry around.
There is also a good laundry area. You need to buy your own detergent and the machine costs 6 euros. We found this helpful as we were halfway through our travels.
If you can I would recommend a room with jacuzzi as sitting out in the evening looking at the mountains was an unforgettable experience.
The grounds are beautiful, very tropical and with ducks everywhere. There was a nice playground available with a good variety of equipment. You can access the lake from the grounds by swiping your room key and from there you can walk right into Riva del Garda in about 10/15mins. There you will find lots of shops, restaurants, playgrounds and a very good little train ride which takes you around the town for 2.50 euros each.
Such beautiful gardens.............Very courteous and helpful staff.......Couldnt have breakfast as had an early morning train to catch but the girl at reception made sure to pack a beautiful takeaway....Wish I could stay longer....
My daughter bought this break for our 20th Wedding Aniversary and I have to say it was absolutely perfect in every way. We were upgraded on arrival to a lake view room which had a fantastic view and the room itself was well equipped and very clean. The facilities are excellent from the superb breakfast room to the luxurious spa suite.
We will be back!
