Hotel description

In the midst of the sprawling parks of the Valpolicella region lies the Byblos Art Villa Amistà. Housed in a Venetian villa originally dating from the 15th Century, the villa had its last architectural redesign in the 18th Century. With extravagant interior design and a private art collection, the hotel offers an exclusive experience for romantics and art lovers. The exquisite restaurant "Atelier" ingratiates hotel guests with its refined regional and international cuisine.
A Luxury Hotel: All-inclusive designer rooms with marble décor
The stately villa, offering 58 luxuriously designed rooms, is located in the Italian Garden of a large park. The fine cuisine of the hotel includes local and international specialties, which can be enjoyed on balmy summer nights in the garden under the stars. There is also a buffet breakfast, which along with the hotel´s wellness area, is included in the price. This combined with the fact that all rooms offer air conditioning and some marble bathrooms, ensures maximum comfort for guests.
A Wellness Hotel: Complete relaxation in steam rooms and tropical showers, and an outdoor swimming pool in the garden
In its 250 m² spa area, the Byblos Art Villa Amistà offers an extensive range of relaxing massages and treatments. The Espace Byblos spa area has a Jacuzzi, a Finnish sauna, and tropical showers and a steam room. Trained staff provide individual counseling on arranging medical and regenerating massages. In the warmer months from June to September, guests can lounge in the garden which hosts an outdoor swimming pool - complete with pool bar for ordering refreshing drinks.
A Design Hotel: Intense colourful interiors with contemporary art
The innovative interior design of the Byblos Art Villa Amistà is the work of the stylish designer Alessandro Mendini. With bright colours and bold forms, the interior design concept is a pleasing complement to the historic splendour of the villa. Each room´s unique appearance has been designed exclusively by one artist. Designer accessories and contemporary artworks make the Byblos Art Villa Amistà at the same time a luxury hotel, art gallery and design museum.
Food & Drink: A rich breakfast buffet and fine creations with home-grown vegetables
In the refined restaurant "Atelier, " hotel guests are presented with a rich breakfast buffet made from fresh ingredients and including many different Italian breads. For dinner, the chefs surprise diners with creative interpretations of Italian classics.

The walk-in wine cellar of the restaurant stores 400 different wine varieties which can be sampled at tastings.
