About the Location
Nestled on the border of Italy and Switzerland, Lake Maggiore is romantic, breathtaking, and serene. Offering deep blue waters, imposing Alpine landscapes, and palatial villas dating back to the glamourous holidaymakers of the 19th Century, Maggiore provides the best of the Italian lakes.
The lake can easily be explored from its main resort of Stresa, which is situated on the lake’s western shore, in Borromean Bay, and stuns visitors with its ornate gardens, candlelit restaurants, and local cuisine. Outside of Stresa, consider soaring up in the Mottarone cable car for Alpine views, or take a ferry out to the Borromean Islands and Isola Madre to explore the spectacular villas and gardens.
Villa e Palazzo Aminta Hotel Beauty & Spa is 45 minutes from Malpensa Airport.

arrived yesterday for a 3 night stay. stunning location at the bank of the lago maggiore. nice building and style of the lobby, breakfast area and rooms is nice. room is very small. you can hardly walk past the bed and nowhere to put a baby bed. no decent baby chairs at the breakfast restaurant. we were constantly afraid our daughter would fall out of the chair. reception staff and pool boy are friendly... but the rest of the staff is not. never experienced such slow and inconsistent service anywhere. the restaurant manager was extremely rude, rest of waiters very unfriendly. eating at the poolside seems difficult. you get a food menu of 1 page, but you can only eat a ham and cheese toast. the guy that brings you the menu 20 minutes after you asked for it then disappears for 25 minutes and there is nobody that can take your order. even at a 3-star hotel i would expect better service!
