About the location
At the foot of Mount Carza lies Cannero, thought to be one of the first towns that visitors discovered when arriving at Lake Maggiore from Northern Europe. Cannero has managed to retain much of its historical heritage, with a medieval church and plenty of interesting architecture. The lakeside promenade offers photo-worthy views, and the pretty townhouses and cafes create a quaint scene which, when viewed from out on the lake, is stunning.
The views are equally impressive from the well-maintained network of paths on the hillside behind the town, which lead to pretty country villages surrounded by vineyards and chestnut woods. The mild year-round climate on this part of the lake encourages the rich Mediterranean vegetation such as magnolias, azaleas and olive groves, making the landscape especially beautiful.
Local restaurants provide delicious, authentic Italian dishes, and there are plenty more choices in the nearby towns that dot the lake’s shore, with Cannobio being closest by.
The hotel is 2 hours from Malpensa airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

My wife and I went on a short 3 night break to Cannero. We were unfortunate with the weather, but it didn???t stop a wonderful stay. The hotel is family run and I can???t praise it highly enough. All of the staff we interacted with were friendly, helpful and spoke good English. We paid the extra for a room with lake view and small balcony. Well worth it. There are 2 restaurants, both serving wonderful food. Breakfast was a bit hit and miss as it took a while for the food to be replaced. Attached to the hotel is a wine cellar, and every evening from 4-6 you can have free wine tasting with Giovani. This guy knows his stuff and is a wonderful man. You must visit him. The ferry boat is directly across from the hotel with regular trips up and down the lake. Will we go back ? Yes for sure we will.

We arrived at the hotel after a very long drive and really appreciated the warm welcome from the reception. This high level of service combined with good knowledge and an engaging team continued at the restaurant. We had a room at the front with a lovely view to the lake and at dinner sat on the terrace which had a wonderful charm about it. It was incredibly relaxing to be there and had a very special ambience. The meal was lovely, the Chateaubriand steak perfectly cooked and all beautifully presented. This was our first visit to this special place and we now look forward to the next one when we will try to stay longer.
