About the location
Holidays in Stresa take you to one of the prettiest locations in the Italian Lakes, with the elegant town perched on the western shore of Lake Maggiore where soaring mountains form a photogenic backdrop.

Stresa has been here for at least a thousand years and the town is peppered with historic buildings, from medieval churches to Renaissance villas. Its cobbled streets are full of pavement cafés and boutique shops, while the surrounding area is renowned for its opulent lakeside palaces and ornamental gardens.

The town is a handy hopping-on point for many ferries and boat trips which sail up and down Lake Maggiore, offering a relaxing way to enjoy the scenery and visit the other towns and villages around this 65km-long lake. For panoramic views of Lake Maggiore and the mountain peaks beyond, Stresa’s cable car climbs from the lakeside to the top of Mount Mottarone, taking you nearly 1,300 metres above the town.
Transfer time
The hotel is 35 minutes from the airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.
