VIGILIUS MOUNTAIN RESORT
Where: Lana, Italy
The crowd: Stylish Milanese wearing the latest Missoni bikinis and Gucci sunglasses, plus a healthy German crowd looking for an Alpine cure
How's the water? Sleek. Dislike cutesy Alpine architecture? Fear not, as this glassed-in pool turns the form in on itself, making for a sexy, wooded space with incomparable views of the southern Tirolean mountains. The streamlined and unfussy design is liberating and sensual. Loll with your loved one in the heated waters, or head for the steamy outdoor hot tub, making for a molto romantico peakside moment.
The poolside tipple: After you take a dip, sit by the fireplace next to the pool and drink a glass of mulled local vino.
The hotel: Architecture hounds will love the modern interiors and eco-friendly materials, and romantics the fact that you can only get here by cable car. Big beds look onto those sensational mountains. In winter, you can ski and snowshoe, while in spring and summer, plan for hiking and picnics among the wildflowers.
