If you love when clever architecture marries with rustic elements and cool design - this place is for you - never mind the fab setting

Intro

The design of the Vivere Suites and Rooms - next to the Arco Mountains, a stone's throw from Lake Garda - is bold, crisp, unimposing, yet every bit subtle and sophisticated, created by Milan-based architects Genuizzi | Banal.

Vivere lets the landscapes of Trentino, carved by the glaciers, take Zen-like centre stage, mindfully complementing and respecting the surrounds with a fabulously modernist low-rise build. 

Crisp, cuboid structures frame the ancient vineyards, whilst generous open spaces dissolve the barriers of the internal and external – allowing nature to flood the place with the scents, sights + sounds. 

We loved the design contrasts of the Vivere Suites and the clever usage of local stonewalling with rusted steel panels - raw elements that act as a protective skin whilst lending an appearance of age, substance and seriousness to this creatively designed boutique Italian hotel.

Here you naturally sense that you are close to Lake Garda at the foothills of the Arco Mountains and that this hotel is a private place, crafted with passion and respect.

Foodie

Endless coffee, mountain teas, breads, cakes and homemade preserves make an entrée for breakfast at the stylish Vivere Suites and Rooms - with pointers to the good life through rural cheeses, cured meats and farm fresh eggs from next door.

Although there is not a restaurant onsite - don't fret, close by are enough restaurants to fill a gourmet guide of this fruitful land - including a fab boutique Pizzeria owned by the same family.  

The Vivere produces their honey, olive oil and wine from the surrounding vineyards - perfect for an end to a day in wonderful, naturally designed surrounds. 

You know when you meet people that make you feel just better - this is your hosts and owners here - they enthuse you with their love of the Arco Mountains

Owners

“The smile of our baker, the mild climate and the view of the lake where the road starts to descend from Nago to Arco are the qualities that make us very happy and content.”

Edy & Miki Longo - owners of the Vivere Suites & Rooms - a small design hotel in the Arco Mountains, close to Lake Garda, Italy

Meet the enigmatic Edy & Miki Longo, who together have created a favourite bolthole for those seeking a taste of the good life, with incredible style of course. Inspired by the Italian farm stay movement agriturismo they transformed a tired old vineyard into a boutique modernist haven of design that is still at its heart, rural & rustic – “we wanted to merge with the nature that surrounds – like a farmhouse, just abstract.” 

Location

Vivere Suites is set against the vineyards of upper Garda and the Arco Mountains of the Trentino region of northern Italy. 

Situated close to the small town of Arco, just north of the infamous beauty spot, Lake Garda, which is just a 10 mins cycle away.
