Beatrice and Roberto Zanetta welcome you to Villa and Palazzo Aminta .

Dominating the enchanting Gulf of the Borromean Islands in Stresa, in a lush vegetation, Villa and Palazzo Aminta is a small and elegant jewel of the international chain The Leading Hotels of the World .

Delicate and precious atmosphere in the exclusive and new spaces of the hotel conceived as in a private home in which time has stratified the styles and traditions of Italian art. 
The new rooms open around the suggestive Italian patio and transmit a feeling of widespread elegance in a conceptual and balanced environment. Stained Venetian pavements, marble columns, aubussons and walls decorated with fine fabrics surround the rooms of light and shimmering reflections. 
Direct access from the outdoor entrance to the Hall makes these spaces ideal for great events and car style presentations!
