- Lakeside charm with history: Lake Maggiore is the ‘local’s lake’ – quieter than Garda and Como, but beloved by Italians and equally as beautiful. Set right on the shore, Hotel de Charme occupies an undiscovered corner in a historic building that started life as a ceramic factory; now, it’s a sleek and modern hotel with top-notch amenities, including a botanical garden.
- Soul-soothing views and laid-back living: Set behind the arched stone windows are polished marble floors, black and white photos and blue hints that reflect the lake beyond. The view is best enjoyed from the infinity pool, but just try to tear yourself away from the spa with its whirlpool, Finnish sauna and steam room. The gym overlooks the water, too.
- Mediterranean flavours and rustic hospitality: Unsurprisingly, the Antica Ceramica restaurant is popular with locals as well as guests. Perhaps it’s the nightly aperitivo, the breakfast buffet of hot dishes and Italian cakes, or the tempting menu of local favourites made with a twist… spring lasagne with Scamorza, potatoes and crushed tomatoes is a highlight.
Please note that some dining and leisure facilities may be closed. Please call the hotel before you travel to find out if facilities have reopened.
