Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Lenno is our favourite place to get away from it all. It’s got such an idyllic location right on the shores of the lake that you can’t help but feel relaxed as soon as you arrive. It’s in the centre of Lenno, a lovely quiet resort that’s got a handful of lakeside cafés and a tree-lined promenade. It’s off the main tourist trail so you won’t be fighting for a seat next to the water when you stop for lunchtime drink or quick coffee before heading out for the day. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy some peace and finish a good book or two.

The hotel is very central and only 100 metres from the ferry point so it’s easy to get out and explore. If you choose to stay for the day then we’d recommend grabbing a spot on the lake-view terrace, which is a great sun trap. It’s next to the nice pool (normally open mid May to September), which is great for cooling off when the weather gets too warm. Our favourite part of staying here is the dinners. The staff here know their food and how to cook well – they’ve even been known to organise some cooking lessons so keep an eye out for these when you’re there. You can order all sorts of delicious dishes from the a la carte menu – we loved the tempura fish! There’s lots of good local wines to try too.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.
