Mussolini ensconced his mistress, Clara Petacci, in this Art Nouveau villa during the dying days of his Salò Republic. Petacci's room, where the couple also lived out their final weeks together before the partisans arrived, is now the Claretta suite and has heavy wood furnishings and gilded stucco ceiling. The other four rooms, done in floral wallpaper and burled walnut antiques, are decidedly less grand. There's a piano bar and sometime discotheque in the Torre San Marco, a fanciful minicastle built against the water's edge at the end of the olive- and pine-tree strewn property. The hotel also hosts Gardone's best restaurant, where the exquisite food has earned the chef a Michelin star—though at these prices, portions could be larger (four ravioli on a plate do not a meal make).

Closed November through February.
