Relais Franciacorta is located at the foot of one of the splendid hills of Franciacorta, an area east of Milan towards Lake Iseo, renowned for its vineyards and the production of the homonymous wine.
Franciacorta, from the Latin "franchae curtes", means "exempted from paying duties". Franciacorta is known for its wine production and includes world-famous producers such as Berlucchi, Bellavista and Ca' del Bosco.
Overlooking the lake, Relais Franciacorta boasts cosy, en-suite rooms, a restaurant and bar, social spaces, extensive gardens and outdoor covered porticos for relaxing.
The recently refurbished and wonderfully finished rooms are all en-suite and provide all the comforts one could expect from a hotel of this standard including flatscreen TV, complimentary toiletries, minibar and safe.
Relais Franciacorta offers an incredible opportunity to sample the local cuisine. The talented catering team offer tempting dishes using the best of local ingredients, paired with some of the region’s best wines.
The beautiful gardens offer a rich variety of flora and fauna and the entire location faces towards the beautiful Lake Iseo. The fresh air offers an incredible opportunity for walks, despite being a stone's throw from Milan.
