Opened in 1993, L’Albereta is owned by the Moretti Family. Carmen Moretti, Vice Chairman of the Terra Moretti Group and Managing Director of the Resort division had dreamed since childhood of developing a hotel complex dedicated to satisfying the whims of its guests, to maximising free time and to the art of livingd. Travelling with her parents, she had been enchanted by similarly charming homes where every last detail, from the décor to service, from the landscape to the cooking made her feel as welcome and important as when visiting her friends’ houses.
This is what L’Abereta is all about and why we are a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux since 1999.
As a majestic Neo-Renaissance country house developed on Bellavista hill at the end of the 19th century, L’Albereta was the private home of lawyer Giovanni Cavalleri and his wife Anna, musician and great art and painting enthusiast.
The Cavalleri house was an important reference point for the northern Italian artistic and cultural scene during f the first half of the 20th century, a hotbed of new ideas and continuous artistic creativity in the fields of poetry, the pictorial arts and the music. In the early 1990’s the Cavalleri villa was then purchased by the family of Vittorio Moretti. L’Albereta’s success is largely due, since its opening in 1993, to Vittorio Moretti’s eldest child, Carmen.
Although a country resort with gourmand restaurant, L’Abereta features a widely renowned wellness and medical SPA, Espace Chenot Health Wellness SPA.
Just a few kilometres away from the romantic Lake Iseo, L’Albereta Stands in a truly strategic area of Lombardy where from the biggest art cities in Northern Italy (Milan, Bergamo, Verona, Venice) can be reached in a short time.
All possible activities are available, excursions on Lake Iseo, Lake Garda and Lake Como, guided tour of the cities of art, winery tours, shopping.

The Executive Chef Fabio Abbattista proposes a cuisine based on the excellence of ingredients, most of which come directly from the hill where L’Albereta is located: here are bred exquisite chickens and rabbits, while vegetables, aromatic herbs and fruits are produced by the family vegetable garden and picked up every day by the kitchen team.
