The 10 Best Luxury Hotels
At Butterfield & Robinson, our hotels aren’t prosaic—they’re pure poetry.
From castles and riads to ryokans and monasteries, we source lodgings that aren’t just places to crash, but one-of-a-kind spots as intimate, authentic and sublime as the rest of your journey—and packed with personal touches from our hotelier friends.
Below we’ve rounded up a few of the best luxury hotels in Veneto, where you can do so much more than simply rest your head.
But be warned: there may be tears when it’s time to say goodbye!
The Villa Cipriani offers timeless charm and the atmosphere of a patrician residence in the heart of picturesque Asolo. It has had many famous owners over the years, including the English poet Robert Browning, and the Guinness family, the famed Irish brewers.
The villa blends seamlessly with the medieval look of Asolo, surrounded by its ancient battlements and perennially watched over by the “Rocca” on its hilltop.
Located in the centre of Follina, this truly charming hotel seems more like a private home due to the warm hospitality extended by its owners and creators, the Zanon family.
It is for this reason that the Abbazia Follina, open since 1992, has repeatedly received awards in recognition of its incredible hospitality and attention to detail.
Centrally located in the heart of Verona this newly restored palazzo is a treasure and most definitely the city’s finest lodgings.
