Hotel Regina Palace

Italian Lakes, Lake Maggiore

  • Situated just a 5 minute walk from Stresa

  • Picturesque views of the surrounding hills and gardens from the swimming pool 


Imposing and opulent, Regina Palace offers a taste of a bygone era: lavish period decoration, art nouveau details, chandeliers, stained glass and a feature staircase. 

 

The historic hotel has been welcoming guests for over 100 years. Queen Sofia of Greece was a regular visitor, as was George Bernard Shaw, as were many members of the international aristocracy. It’s unsurprising really - the hotel commands wonderful views of Lake Maggiore, and its privileged placement, just five minutes from Stresa, means that it is an easy and pleasant walk to get to the pretty town. Rooms are decorated with the elegance of the 1900s and many include frescoes and four-poster beds


The hotel grounds are beautiful and the freeform pool at the rear of the gardens is lovely and has lots of sunbeds for relaxing the day away. Guests are also invited to enjoy the spa’s indoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath, hot tub and gym.


If you want to spread your wings a little further afield, then the gorgeous Borromean Islands are just a 20-minute boat ride away. Milan is easily reachable by train in just over an hour.


The hotel has 224 rooms (official rating 4 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years. Minimum stay 3 nights.

About the location

Stresa on the west of Italy's Lake Maggiore has been seducing visitors for years. And with its cobbled streets, beautiful lakeside setting and historic centre packed full of boutiques and cafes, it’s not hard to see why! 


Perhaps part of Stresa’s popularity is due to its unmissable alpine lake views. One of the best ways to see these is by hopping on the cable car from behind Stresa and taking the 1491 metre ride to the summit of Monte Mottarone. Your efforts will be well rewarded - on a clear day the views are simply amazing. If you prefer to be water based, then get on the ferry to the jaw-droppingly beautiful Borromean Islands. Loved by Ernest Hemingway (among many others), this archipelago is made up of three islands (and two islets) and embodies the elegance of a bygone era. From the monumental Isola Bella, with its 17th-Century Palazzo Borromeo to the botanically rich Isola Madre to our favourite, Isola dei Pescatori (Fishermen’s Island), these islands are some of the prettiest on the lake. Take the ferry from Stresa’s pier and sit back and enjoy the ride. Just don’t forget your camera!
