Big little weekend breaks in hotels of charm around Italy are the perfect way of stretching a weekend into a three-day staycation, as is becoming more and more popular thanks to smart working and the new work-life balances. 

These three properties, from the splendors of Venice, to beautiful green Umbria, to sunny Sorrento are just the thing for relaxing getaways in hotels of exceptional charm, character and cachet.

Ca di Dio 11 room101 Suite Vista Laguna

Ca’ di Dio, Venice

The new five-star Ca’ di Dio hotel, overlooking the iconic lagoon, is just a short distance from Piazza San Marco and one of Venice’s most exciting recent additions. Set in a building with a fascinating history, the rooms, with polished stone floors, exposed beams, upholstered paneling and Murano-glass lamps, are a contemporary take on a traditional Venetian home, and the two Altana Suites have stairs up to private roof terraces. Next to Venice’s Contemporary Art District the setting for the iconic Biennale, access to the hotel is by direct docking for arrivals in style! The Alchemia Bar and Essentia Restaurant are in the two internal courtyards and in the indoor-outdoor Vero Restaurant looking onto the lagoon, the cuisine is inspired by typical Venetian dishes, revisited with a modern touch. Ca’ di Dio offers rooms from €460 per night on a B&B basis, based on two people sharing. 

Hotel Vannucci, Città della Pieve

Restored and renovated since its completion in 1907, the 30-room boutique hotel overlooks the beautiful medieval town of Città della Pieve. Etruscans and Romans settled here along with Renaissance artist Pietro Vannucci, better known as Il Perugino, whose most famous paintings are hung throughout the town. Just 45 minutes from Perugia, Hotel Vannucci is equidistant from Rome and Florence and an easy drive from some of the region’s gems. In the Zafferano Restaurant, called for the saffron which is harvested by hand from the crocus blossoms, Umbria’s famous truffles, porcini mushrooms, handmade pastas, and cured meats feature on the menu.  Hotel Vannucci offers rooms from €126 per night, based on two adults sharing on a B&B basis.

Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, Sorrento

This 188-year-old hotel is just an hour’s drive from Naples and sits on the clifftops of the Amalfi coastline. Popular with VIPs – Richard Wagner and Oscar Wilde both stayed here - the hotel has a Michelin-starred restaurant with breath-taking views over the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius, a gorgeous boutique spa and a fascinating history.  The rooms and public areas have frescoed ceilings and antiques.  Sorrento’s central Corso Italia is lined with caffes, restaurants and shops, but the entire historic centre has sights and eateries tucked away on little side streets. Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria offers rooms starting from €637 per night on a B&B basis, based on two people sharing a garden view room.
