We could all use a bit of a break right now. We’re always looking for new, unique, and interesting experiences, which is precisely why we love to travel. Today we get a look at a unique retreat situated in a 17th-century monastery. Monastero Arx Vivendi sits on the shore of Italy’s Lake Garda. The thoughtfully resorted property features historic charm and modern appeal, converted to a wellness retreat with the help of noa* architecture.
The space is defined by original arched ceilings and exposed wood beams. These details are prevalent throughout the common space. The property features 40 guest rooms that now occupy the former nun’s quarters. The property also features a lush garden and a full spa, complete with a swimming pool, saunas, hammam, and treatment rooms. The area is known for its incredible views, and property features vistas of Arco castle in the distance.
Take a closer look at this stunning modern retreat in the images below and immediately book your stay at Monastero Arx Vivendi. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more unique and exceptional travel destinations.
