Your Destination

Set between Piedmont, Lombardy and Switzerland, Lake Maggiore is one of the most popular and beautiful holiday spots in Italy's Lake District. Your hotel is located in the lakeside town of Stresa. With sweeping vistas of crystal blue waters, set against soaring alpine mountains and dotted with sleepy cobblestone villages, this spectacular destination is one of Italy’s jewels and its abundant natural beauty has drawn visitors to its shores for centuries. 

Borromeo Islands (10 minutes by boat - open for visiting from March 20th)
Home to the Borromean Palace and fisherman's houses alike, the three Borromeo islands and their lavish gardens are a 'must see' when visiting Stresa. On the islands of Bella and Madre, there are sumptuous palaces and rare plant gardens where peacocks, parrots and pheasants roam wild against an exotic backdrop reminiscent of faraway lands. In contrast, the Isola dei Pescatori is famous for the charming simplicity of its old fishing village, which is considered one of the most picturesque spots on Lake Maggiore

Please note: Parks on the Borromean islands and the palaces close on October 23rd.

Villa Taranto Botanic Gardens (15km)
A spectacular example of a labour of love, undertaken by Scottish office Captain McEacharn in 1931. He created an exemplary English garden to remind him of home, which has today flourished to include a vast array of rare tropical foliage. A must for keen gardeners - open from 12 March 2020-1st November 2020.

Mottarone (20km)
Mottarone is known as the 'Mountain of the Two Lakes' thanks to its strategic position between Lake Maggiore and the equally beautiful Lake Orta. Take an exhilarating cableway trip to the summit to enjoy a superlative view of the Lake and the majestic Alpine chain.

Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees 5*

This grand hotel showcases sumptuous elegance and Italian tradition, in a breathtaking setting. The hotel stands right at the water's edge of Lake Maggiore, surrounded by impeccable gardens, immersed in peace and tranquillity. This prestigious 150-year-old hotel is one of the best in the area. Its privileged position affords it, from almost every angle, breathtaking views of the splendid Borromeo Islands, the surrounding mountains and the lake itself. The interiors are as striking as the views - oozing opulence and old-world glamour at every turn. The beautiful and extensive grounds include a tranquil Japanese Garden, two swimming pools and acres of manicured lawns.

Some services may incur additional charges, payable locally.
