Boasting some of most phenomenal panoramic views of the Limone lakefront, Hotel Europa has been a longstanding favourite of Inghams guests for good reason. Managed by the hotel owners Dominic and Sophie and their team who offer a stellar level of service, this quaint property offers a fabulous base for exploring not just Limone itself but the resorts beyond.
Rooms are sleek and comfortable with lake, mountain or town views and good amenities. There is a small pool in the grounds, surrounded by verdant palm and pine trees overlooking the harbour beneath and a leisure room with games including a foosball table which makes for great entertainment in between sunbathing on the terrace and taking a dip in the pool.
A rich continental breakfast is served in the dining room each morning offering sparkling lake views as you sip freshly brewed coffee and in the evening, dinner service is a three course menu utilising traditional ingredients such as infused olive oils from the western shores where the olives are blended with fresh lemons.
The Europa is just a short walk from the ferry port where weekly and daily tickets can be purchased allowing you to explore all the resorts on the week from neighbouring Riva with its baroque architecture right down to Peschiera with its turquoise waters and lakeside walking trails.
Please note that whilst the walk to the centre of Limone is a short journey, it is via a narrow and steep lane which may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.
