Today, Podere Castel Merlo is reborn with a new charm: a synchrony of elements of the past and extreme luxury that emerges in every aspect, from the passionate architecture of Alessandro Agrati to the starred cuisine of Davide Oldani. A luxury Relais, a five-star hotel which is writing a new page in history of this glimpse of Lombardan life, once again visible to the world through Christo and his spectacular Floating Piers, a golden thread that crosses Lake Iseo and merges with the earth, and is found in every bottle of Etoile.
In this Dante fresco, wines and rooms create a play of mirrors that explodes in the oasis terrace, where the waterfall of the pool reflects and decomposes in the heart of the vineyard. The seven unique rooms and the jewel Spa are the core of this exclusive area that also includes the “Etoile” restaurant, created in collaboration with chef Davide Oldani, and an expanding events area.
Hospitality extends to every aspect of the stay and the guest who chooses this experience can freely decide how to live it, with personalised schedules and needs. It is the ideal place for finding intimacy and privacy. The Relais offers tailored services and the guest can forget what lies outside the walls: from relaxation in two in the private Spa, with possible treatments for couples, to a starred dinner at the Etoile or an evening drink by the pool with music and soft lighting.
