We had a wonderful 2-week vacation at Relais Palazzo Lodron. Our family of 4 (children ages 6 and 8) were one of the first to stay in the roomy apartments now managed by the hotel.
While many would find this a perfect stop for a short stay as they travel through Italy (it is conveniently located off the main autostrada between Verona and the Austrian border), we chose to make it the base for our two week vacation in Italy. And we were not disappointed! It is within an hour's drive of Lago di Garda, beautiful mountain peaks and plains, vineyards, castles, and charming towns and cities such as Verona, Trento and Mantova. With young children we could do half day trips -- whether it be exploring piazzas or hiking mountains -- and come back to home-base in the village of Nogredo to relax. Two weeks were not enough to cover all the attractions of the area.
The accomodations were spacious and comfortable. The apartments were well appointed and the children were thrilled to be sleeping in a Palace from the 15th/16th century. The appliances and comfortable furnishings were very modern though! The apartments provided a sense of independence, but in fact we relied heavily on the warmth and guidance of Andreas and Paola who made us feel at home and gave us valuable tips on how to spend our days in the region. The main hotel also provides access to an indoor swimming pool. The town itself and nearby villages offer good dining options as well as grocery stores for apartment living.
In short, the Relais Palazzo Lodron is a high-service hotel in a fantastic location, maintained with great care by its wonderful caretakers. It would be a great place to stay for a weekend or as a stop on a longer journey. But for us it was the perfect "home base" for a super vacation in a beautiful part of Italy.
