The Villa & Palazzo Aminta stands in its own gardens of azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons and ancient trees in the town of Stresa facing Italy’s most romantic lake – “Lake Maggiore”. Since 2000 the Zanetta family who own the hotel have restored the villa to its original splendor. The décor inside is as classic as the superb Piedmont scenery surrounding the hotel, all inlaid marble floors and ornate Murano chandeliers, gilded chairs, and antique furniture. No two of its 67 guest rooms and suites are alike, each distinguished by trompe l’oeil frescoes and personalized color schemes. They open out onto terraces or balconies with views of the garden or the lake.

From Sempione Pass Switzerland, we suggest to go forward when SS 33 becomes Highway A26 and exit at Baveno-Stresa. From San Bernardino-Bellinzona-Locarno Switzerland just follow the main road keeping the lake always on your left hand side until you reach Stresa (SS 34 until Verbania, then SS 33 direction Milan).
If you come from Milan, get A8 in direction of the lakes (Laghi - Sesto Calende), go on to A26 direction Gravellona Toce. On highway A26 you may exit at Arona and then follow SS 33 up to Stresa for about 18 Km keeping the lake on scenic road on your right hand side. You may also go forward on A26 and exit at Carpugnino (forbidden to buses) where you'll find a narrow road going down to Stresa (5 Km) with a wonderful panoramic view. Otherwise you can continue going till the exit Baveno-Stresa where the road will immediately reach the lakeside: you'll need to drive back to Stresa for about 5 Km with the lake on your left hand side.

Its vantage location on the lake is almost unparalleled, and its accommodations level is superior to that of other Maggiore resorts in Italy.
