I stayed here during a recent Italian motorcycle holiday and happened upon this place by chance. It really is a best kept secret, but I think this should change as the place is fantastic.
The hotel is situated on approach to Albinea and in fact is just past the white town sign you will pass as you enter the town.
The rooms are large, beautifully decorated and pristinely clean, with cute little touches like the welcome chocolate sweet which you will find on the pillow of your bed.
Hotel Garden Vigano itself is situated in a picturesque courtyard with a forest nearby which has a stream running through. There was also an old church. You could take pictures and sell them as postcards.
The owners are a very warm and friendly couple who will go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need and that you feel very welcome.
I didn't actually want to leave this place and continue my trip around Italy, it was that good.
Outstanding! I will return to Albinea next year to stay here again.
