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.
Transfer time
Villa e Palazzo Aminta Hotel Beauty & Spa is 45 minutes from Malpensa Airport.
