Map & Directions

Milan-Malpensa Airport is around 60 kilometres from the hotel. Expect to pay around 160€ for a taxi to the airport (the hotel can arrange this on your behalf). In summer, the Alibus shuttle operates a service to Stresa, but reservations need to be made at least a day in advance and before 11am. Stresa railway station is around 1.5 kilometres away -- trains from Milan about an hour. There is free car parking at the hotel.

Overview

With its ornate Belle Époque façade, opulent interiors and views of Lake Maggiore’s Borromean Islands, the Hotel Villa & Palazzo Aminta offers a unique place to stay that is romantic and luxurious in equal measure. It's around a kilometre from the picturesque town of Stresa, where you'll find a decent choice of eateries with outdoor seating, from trattorias and pizzerias to seafood restaurants. The hotel operates a complimentary shuttle service to the town.

It is set in flower-filled gardens and has lavish fairytale interiors -- think sparkling chandeliers, hanging tapestries, marble columns and gilded mirrors. The I Mori Restaurant serves Italian cuisine and is open daily for lunch and dinner. It has large windows with wrought-iron detailing and looks out onto the lake and its islands. The hotel's main Le Isole Restaurant offers international cuisine and typical Italian dishes in an equally romantic setting -- it has a terrace with far-reaching views.

Private boat excursions to the picturesque Borromean Islands depart from the hotel's own beach and there are also opportunities for water sports. The outdoor swimming pool overlooks the lake, and there is a spa with a softly-lit grotto and features such as sensory showers, a steam bath, an ice waterfall and a gym.

There are 72 rooms and suites, all with private balconies or terraces. Some have views of the gardens, while others look out onto the lake.
