Just a short walk from Stresa’s centre along the lakeside promenade Hotel La Palma's one of the more stylish places to stay on Lake Maggiore. With piazzas, shops and cafés right on your doorstep and a ferry point close by, this is a fantastic location for getting to know the lake; make sure you visit the stunning Borromean Islands while you're there!
Rooftop bar with views of Lake Maggiore
Hotel La Palma has the best rooftop bar on Lake Maggiore with amazing views over the lake and Borromean Islands. It’s a popular haunt with locals as well as tourists so head there early and grab a seat in time for sunset. We love the cocktails here and you can order bar snacks too. It's the must-be place at aperitivo time. There’s an infinity plunge pool on the terrace where you can relax during the day with the same incredible views.
It’s part of the hotel’s Panoramic Spa, which also has a sauna, steam room and relaxation area with floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s a lakeside swimming pool that’s just over the road, across the promenade - we love the hydro massage stations and extra-large sofas for lounging on. A bar that serves refreshments and light snacks so you never have to leave.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.
