Tell Diane Lane to move over: It's your turn to bask Under the Tuscan Sun.

Located on a colourful, cottage-dotted coastline, Ravella at Lake Las Vegas offers an Italian-style getaway for a fraction of the travel time and cost required by an actual trip to the Boot.

Escape on a one-night stay for two in a king room ($79) or a one-night stay for two in a king room with one 50-minute aromatherapy massage ($179). Both options come with complimentary valet parking.

Say buon giorno to Ravella's opulent rooms. The fluffy feather beds, overstuffed pillows, rich mahogany furniture and marble bathrooms befit a centuries-old Italian estate. But that old world charm comes with modern perks like free wi-fi, flat-screen TVs and lake or desert views.

Let mangia be your mantra on this escape. Indulge in smooth coffee and pastries at the Firenze Lobby Lounge or a tropical cocktail and snacks at the Lagoon Bar and Grill. Then savour lunch or dinner at Medici Café, where each dish is freshly made from ripe, juicy and local produce. You'll think there's an Italian nonna stashed in the kitchen to whip up meals just for you.

They say, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." But on this escape, you're free to enjoy yourself however you please. Say ciao to stress during your 50-minute aromatherapy couples massage at The Spa at Ravella, or strut the glittering, neon-lit Las Vegas Strip just 15 minutes away.

Tee off on the Cascata Golf Club's rolling greens, or get your outdoor fix by biking, hiking, fishing or even stand-up paddle boarding. Then, leisurely stroll among MonteLago Village's Tuscan villa-style shops and international eateries.

Whether you choose to party until dawn on the Vegas Strip or just sip cocktails and soak in sunsets beside Ravella's quiet lagoon, you'll be living la dolce vita on this escape.
