Hotel description

The Giardino Lago Hotel, situated a historic Italian villa just a stone’s throw from the banks of Lake Maggiore, combines a charming, rustic exterior with an ultramodern interior to stunning effect. Its beautiful garden surroundings can be enjoyed from the panorama glass windows of the in-house restaurant, ‘Ristorante Lago’, which boasts not only great views but an 800° oven, to offer meat loving diners a unique culinary experience. Every room is impeccably furnished.
Boutique: intimate and exclusive
The Giardino Lago Hotel houses only 14 rooms and one suite, allowing an atmosphere of absolute peace and quiet even when the hotel is fully booked. Particularly peaceful is the roof terrace, featuring a luxurious lounge design. The space invites guests to recline on elegant couches under giant white parasols to better enjoy the wonderful lake views. The hotel’s interior features a tasteful, modern design, with attention paid to even the smallest details: a mixture of hand-made Italian furnishings are combined with high-quality products from the Designers’ Guild and real wood flooring. The whole look is complimented by splashes of colour to create a welcoming and youthful ambience.
