Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The sumptuous Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees lies in a privileged position looking out over the enchanting Borromean Islands with the centre of Stresa just a short walk way. The villa was built in 1863 and its crowning glory is undoubtedly the extensive garden, home to beautiful rhododendrons in springtime, but the hotel’s interiors are also beautiful and stylish with widespread use of marble and Murano chandeliers. This hotel is for the discerning traveller in search of a little luxury with facilities that are second to none.

Stylish Stresa is Lake Maggiore's leading resort. Take your summer holidays in Stresa this year and experience this unforgettably beautiful Italian lake resort. The idyllic Borromean Islands are only a short boat ride away and Monte Mottarone, with its superb views, is easy to reach by cable car.

The lush gardens of Villa Pallavicino and Villa Taranto are well worth a visit. Summer holidays in Stresa take you to a flower filled, fragrant place with a long, landscaped lake front promenade. This links by cable-car and lake ferry to all the resort's main hotels. Imagine crystal clear waters, sparkling blue skies and idyllic lake islands and that's a summer holiday in Stresa... in a nutshell!

The old town centre has been partly pedestrianised and comes to life in the evenings as the bars and restaurants spill into the squares. Holidaymakers love summer holidays in Stresa for the smart shops that line the narrow, cobbled streets. And the music! From the end of July to September, Stresa's celebrated International Music Festival offers 25 fantastic classical music concerts.
