A breathtaking stay at an 18th-century Italian villa, close to Lake Maggiore, with an outdoor pool - with breakfast, a dining discount, a suite, flights and car hire

With effortlessly elegant interiors, beautifully manicured gardens peppered with Roman statues, and an unbeatable location between Lake Varese and Lake Maggiore, the 18th-century Villa Porro Pirelli ticks all the boxes – and then some. Add to this refined cuisine, a tranquil outdoor pool perfect for cooling off in, and a welcoming team, and you'll have the recipe for three, four or five nights of la bella vita.

The hotel is perfectly placed for exploring northern Italy’s famously beautiful lakes; Lake Lugano, Lake Varese and Lake Maggiore are each within an hour’s drive, and A-list favourite Lake Como is only a little further away. Head out in your hire car to explore this breathtaking destination, rent a pedalo and take to the twinkling waters or lace up for a hike in your alpine surroundings, before fuelling up on Italian classics in the hotel's restaurant, housed in an 18th-century greenhouse.
