New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

Podere Castel Merlo is located in Villongo Sant’Alessandro, a 40 minute drive from Bergamo. Surrounded by lush, unspoilt beauty, you are just 8km from Castello del Grumella, which is now part of a winery where you can enjoy guided tours and tastings.

Situated near Lake Iseo (14km), one of the least known Lombard lakes. Shut in by soaring mountains, it's a magnificent sight. About halfway along the lake, a mountain soars right out of the water! With the exception of the south shore and a series of tunnels at the northeast end of the lake, the road closely hugs the water on its circuit around Lake Iseo and is especially dramatic south of Lovere. Various back roads also lead high up behind Lovere for magnificent views.

To the lake's north stretches the Valle Camonica (57km), famed for its Stone Age rock carvings. To the south stretches the rolling Franciacorta wine country and, to the west, the picture-book-pretty Lake Endine (22km). We recommend adding car hire at the next stage of the booking process to explore your beautiful surroundings.

Your Hotel

Podere Castel Merlo, in the municipality of Villongo province of Bergamo, was founded in the 14th century as a fortified building for defensive use, located in a hilly area cultivated with vineyards. After passing through the medieval conflicts which led to the destruction of a wing, Podere Castel Merlo has now been restored back to its former glory.

These ancient origins are still evident around the hotel, as renovations have worked hard to retain original charms and features. Today Castel Podere Merlo has been reborn as a luxury Relais and lives a new story. Surrounded by vineyards, there are now 7 Suites, an elegant spa and a prestigious events area with a restaurant where you can sample delicious cuisine created by top chefs in collaboration with Davide Oldani.
