Deville’s Spa Les Deux Iles between myth and reality
The first element that inspired Architect Venturini is fire. It is common belief that Mount Baldo, which overlooks Lake Garda, is a volcanic mountain. Fire, though, is not just eruptions and lava flows: it warms us up and helps us live, it is a gift.
The name of the spa? Les Deux Iles, that is, “the two islands”. Those who are familiar with the area will have already understood the reason why. It comes from a legend too, but islands in Lake Garda really do exist. They are actual starting points to reach every direction, and figuratively they are havens for the soul, surrounded by water that heal and purify body and mind. Finnish sauna and steam bath are just that. Located in the middle of the spa like the two islands in the middle of the lake, encircled by water, which can be crossed thanks to the walkways that allow passage. What’s more, Lake Garda is a glacial lake. This is the reason why the spa features an ice fall: to evoke another characteristic element of this territory.
