So often has actress Sophia, 83, been to stay at the hotel, there is a suite named in her honour; while self-professed 'spa junkie' Elle, 54, once listed the resort in her top two spas in the world.
Picture(book) Perfect: Based in a neo-Renaissance villa, dating back to the late nineteenth century, this leaf-laden refuge is located amid the rolling vineyards of the Franciacorta territory - a setting practically stolen from the pages of an illustrated fairy tale'Henri Chenot’s L’Albereta in Franciacorta, Italy, is wonderful,' she stated, in a 2008 interview with The Telegraph, in which she explained where she goes in the world to be 'in a great nurturing environment'.
Surrounded by patrician villas and sweeping acreages and orchards, the region plays host to the summer residences of noble Brescian and Bergamasque families and has a history as rich as the soil it's vines are rooted in.
The only slight break in the silence that envelopes L'Albereta might occur when you are out in the gardens - where it's not unusual for a helicopter to rise from the hillside, choppering someone glamorous out across the nearby lakes.
The staff are beautifully friendly and are there for whatever they can help you with. It offers some of the best restaurants in Brescia - giving those looking for gourmet food the chance to taste the delights of it's relatively new restaurant Leon Felice.
The scent of luxury: Anyone who stays there will forever equate the aroma with L'Albereta afterwards.
If you don't want to be, you can quite easily go without interacting with another human being for a whole afternoon or day, even.
This isn't to say the hotel is an unsociable retreat. The ethos of the resort is based upon the art of living and the pleasure of conviviality.

The resort is also a favourite with the likes of Salma Hayek, Arsene Wenger, half the Manchester United football team, the late Luciano Pavarotti and endless oligarchs, billionaires, sheikhs.
