Hotel Villa Carlotta is set within botanic gardens on the western shore of Lake Maggiore. It has a swimming pool and a private jetty on the lake for sunbathing by the water. The restaurant serves Italian and international dishes.
It is in the small town of Belgirate, which has an 11th-century Romanesque church that boasts stunning views of the glistening lake. Stresa, the main town in the area, is a 10-minute drive away. Lonely Planet says it "captures the lake's prevailing air of elegance and bygone decadence".
About Lake Maggiore
Italy's second-largest lake is on the border of the Piedmont and Lombardy regions. Its most popular attractions are the Borromean Islands, named after the Italian aristocratic family who owns them. They are accessible by ferry from Stresa.
Isola Bella, the island closest to Stresa, features an elaborate Baroque palace and formal grounds. Isola Madre, the largest of the islands, has colourful botanical gardens with internationally sourced exotic plants. Isola dei Pescatori is a traditional fishing village, no longer owned by the Borromeo family. The small community who live there have preserved their traditional way of life.
Travelzoo tip: Our Deal Expert Sara Kriegel recommends visiting the islands, eating porcini mushroom risotto (seasonally in almost every restaurant in town) and going for a drink at Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromées in Stresa. Ernest Hemingway spent time here, and the area features in his novel A Farewell to Arms.
