With the glorious sunshine and warmer weather finally making an appearance in the London scene, our thoughts have turned to where we could have the best swimming experience in Italy. So, the Sardatur team have come up with a bucket list of 10 hotels with the most stunning swimming pools in Italy. There is no swimming with Dolphins here, instead expect infinity pools with ridiculously stunning views across the Amalfi Coast, urban oasis pools within the waterworld of Venice, floating pools in Lake Como and pools commanding magnificent views of the Tuscan countryside.
1. Hotel Caruso, Amalfi Coast
On Italy’s ridiculously beautiful Amalfi Coast, the Hotel Caruso is set at the highest point of the refined and polished town of Ravello. Its elliptical-shaped, infinity pool commands breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coastline.
2. Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo swimming pool floats at the edge of Lake Como, also known as the Italian Lake District. Imagine a dawn swim in the heated pool overlooked by the Alps… Priceless!
3. hotel caesar augustus, amalfi coast
The jaw-dropping infinity pool at the Hotel Caesar Augustus is set 1,000 feet above sea level and it commands mesmerizing views over the bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. How early will you be prepared to wake up just to have this all to yourself?
4. monastero santa rosa, amalfi coast
A blissful retreat on the Amalfi Coast, the 17th- century Monastero Santa Rosa has a spectacular cliff-edge infinity pool that seems to float over the sea and beyond. With only 20 rooms and breathtaking views of the Amalfi, no surprisingly its considered as one of the best honeymoon hotels and locations you could wish for.
5. mezzatorre resort & spa, ischia
The Mezzatore Resort & Spa is one of the most strikingly beautiful boutique hotels in the island of Ischia and in Italy. Its seawater swimming pool is located on one of the hotel’s secluded pretty terraces. Are you already dreaming of shimming into your swimwear and taking the plunge?
6. HOTEL CIPRIANI, VENICE
Away from the madding crowd of Venice is the magnificent Olympic-sized pool at Hotel Cipriani, on Guidecca Island. If you’re a lap swimmer, it doesn’t get better than this!
7. Fonteverde tuscan resort & spa, tuscany
Located close to Siena, the Forteverde Tuscan Resort & Spa has seven thermal pools in difference sizes including this stunning pool. The water that fills these pools were drawn from natural hot springs and are perfect for relaxing and admiring the magnificent views of the Tuscan countryside.
8. Colonna pevero, sardinia
These pools may no be the most romantic of our bucket list but the five swimming pools at the Colonna Pevero Hotel, some of which have kid’s areas and one with a Jacuzzi, are ideal for families.
9. Castello banfi il Borgo, tuscany
An outstanding rural retreat, the Castello Banfi Il Borgo‘s swimming pool may be on the small side, but from here you can admire the spectacular views from Val d’Orcia to Monte Amiata.
10. masseria torre maizza, puglia
Surrounded by a grove of ancient olive trees, Hotel Masseira Torre Maizza has a solar-heated swimming pool and a wooden desk with lounge chairs where you can sunbathe and catch up on your reading.
