Why should travelers visit your destination and your hotel right now? What is new and exciting?

We are a newly opened 5-star luxury hotel in Lake Maggiore. In our Restaurant Le Fief you can taste regional and modern cuisine. We are located near Arona, an ideal town for shopping. We are near Stresa, the Borromeo Islands, Lake Orta, and Mottarone -- where the sky is so clear you can see four lakes from the top. And don't forget golf courses nearby!

What unique experiences and special access can you provide to your guests outside the hotel to make their visit most memorable?

Private boat tour on Lake Maggiore and private guided tour to the Borromeo Island and the garden of Villa Taranto, Villa Pallavicino and Villa Giulia.
Possibility to charter a Riva boat.

Private Helicopter tour around the lake.
Horse riding in the beautiful landscape of Alto Vergante where you can have an amazing view of the lake.

Can you give us advice for tipping the Concierge for services rendered?

In Italy tipping has no definite rule. So if during your stay, you felt relaxed, enjoyed yourself, and took in as much as possible from this beautiful place that you visited, that is our goal as Concierge. It gives us a lot of happiness and we do not need any tip.
