Vivere Suites and Rooms, Arco, Lake Garda

Vivere: could there be a more apt name for this modern agriturismo?

Vivere Suites and Rooms is a sleek, design boutique hotel set in an old vineyard, 5 km from Lake Garda surrounded by the mountains of the town of Arco.

It offers four suites with kitchenette and two junior suites. All have their own private entrance and a private garden and come equipped with all modern comforts. Amenities include products from the Gianni Vigone Home Collection, amenities by Etro and Nespresso machines.

The veranda overlooks the swimming pool where guests can enjoy their breakfast or have a drink. Complimentary cakes, pastries and fresh fruit are available during the day. Inside is a living room with a fire place. Wine and olive oil are produced on the estate grounds and can be purchased or tasted at the honesty bar. There is no restaurant as such, but the owner’s family pizzeria is a 5-minute walk away in town.

A range of treatments and massages are on request. There is also a fitness room. Complimentary bicycles are available to explore the surroundings.

The DNA: The design of Vivere is bold, unimposing, yet every bit subtle and sophisticated. The idea originated in 2004 to offer a new kind of ‘agriturismo’ in Trentino, leaving the concept of hospitality based on rural aspects with the modern comforts of home and the high quality standards offered by a hotel. The result is a fabulously modernist low-rise built set in the owner’s family farm which produces extra virgin olive oil, honey, jams and Trentino DOP and Merlot DOC wines. The building is also self-sustainable, thanks to the use of renewable energy.
