Dating back to the early 20th century, the grand Villa e Palazzo Aminta is one of Lake Maggiore’s finest hotels. With its super position on the lakefront, this sumptuous five star property is the perfect choice for a luxurious holiday.

This is a family-run hotel and it takes pride on the service given to its guests from the moment you step into the opulent lobby with Venetian flooring and marble columns. The public areas of the hotel are well-maintained and offer plenty of spaces to relax. The bar boasts comfortable sofas and the lovely gardens offer peace and tranquility surrounded by flowers. The swimming pool overlooks the lake towards the Borromean Islands and is the ideal spot to relax under the warm sunshine, or you can take advantage of the spa with hammam and Jacuzzi. Those wanting to explore can easily walk into the centre of Stresa along the lakefront promenade, or hop on a ferry to discover the islands.

The guest rooms at Villa e Palazzo Aminta continue to offer luxury and comfort, with sumptuous furnishings and fabrics as well as private balconies that overlook the park or lake. The lake views can also be enjoyed from the excellent restaurant that offers local and international cuisine, complemented by fine wines.

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.

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.
