Villa e Palazzo Aminta is a very good choice for a luxury holiday on Lake Maggiore. It’s one of the best hotels in the area. It’s got a great lakeside location with views towards the Borromean Islands and the centre of Stresa can be reached easily with a stroll along the lakefront promenade. There's a free shuttle there if you don't feel like walking.
This hotel is family-run and all of the staff take great pride in what they do, which makes the whole experience of staying here really special. Everything is well maintained. We love it as soon as we walk through the doors and see the Venetian floor and marble columns in the lobby. There’s lots of places to relax, both inside and out. Order a drink at the bar and chill out on one of the soft sofas or head to the gardens where little tables and chairs have been set up next to the colourful flowers. The outdoor pool is at the front of the property and looks out over the lake. It’s a lovely place to read a book while you sun bathe. Inside you’ll find a nice spa with a Hammam and Jacuzzi. Check out the treatments list and book in a nice massage or facial for the ultimate pampering session (payable locally). Some of the spa facilities are included in the hotel price while massages and treatments are payable locally.
The rooms offer the same luxury and comfort as the rest of the hotel. They got rich fabrics, Italian furniture and private balconies that have views of the gardens or the lake. Some of the best lake views can be had over dinner at the hotel’s restaurant. There’s a high standard here with delicious local dishes and some excellent wines that complement the food perfectly.
