Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Since it opened its doors in 1907, the wonderful Hotel Eden has offered great levels of family service in one of Baveno's most enviable locations. Overseen by the warm and welcoming Luca Pagani and his family, the Eden considers guest service absolutely tantamount. The decor of the hotel is simple, traditional and homely with traditional hues of Italian influence. Bedrooms are cozy and welcoming with views of the lake, town and stunning nearby church. Dine in the delightfully quaint dining room complete with vintage fireplace and large bay windows looking out onto the lake. Should you wish to dine a la carte then you can do so at the Eden's public restaurant on the lakeside terrace perched over the water. The resident head chef creates some fantastic dishes including fresh fish, homemade pastas and desserts such as creamy panna cotta and gelato. All dishes have the perfect wine to compliment them taken from the Pagani family cellar and can be served with dinner or at the small bar where you can sit during the day and live 'La Dolce Vita' with an Aperol in hand or watch the sunset with a cool glass of rose in the evenings.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour by coach.

The Borromean Islands

The three Borromean Islands are easily reached from Baveno. Isola Bella was transformed in the 17th Century when the Borromeo family built their baroque palazzo and classically Italian terraced garden. Peacocks strut around the gardens on elegant Isola Madre, the largest island; the villa contains rooms which have been decorated and furnished in period style. Isola dei Pescatori is humble by comparison, but charming nevertheless, retaining the air of the fishing community it once was. Dickens wrote of Isola Bella "However fanciful and fantastic Isola Bella may be, and is, it is still beautiful". Our 'Island Tour' includes guided visits of Isola dei Pescatori and Isola Bella including entrance to the palace and gardens.
