Romance on Italy’s Lake Maggiore at the Villa e Palazzo Aminta

December 19, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Villa Aminta, ItalyFew spots on earth can rival the setting of Lago Maggiore, sandwiched between Italy's pre-Alps and Switzerland, and fragrant with beautiful gardens and Mediterranean vegetation. Here in this idyllic spot in the town of Stresa, on the panoramic coastal road heading to Switzerland, the Villa e Palazzo Aminta is a gem of a hotel, meticulously restored by the Zanetta family when they purchased it five years ago. A member of the Small Leading Hotels of the World, the Villa overlooks the beautiful islands of Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori. It simply oozes Italian luxury, appointed with sumptuous antique furniture, chandeliers, tapestries and precious fabrics, and arabesques and Oriental arches in homage to the historic relationship with Venice, "the Doorway to the Orient." This is the ideal hideaway for a honeymoon, or just a few days of lakeside romance. The Villa has a two-night honeymoon package, starting from EUR 976 during low season, with buffet breakfast, 1 relaxing massage per person at the Palazzo Aminta Beauty & Spa, a gourmet regional dinner at the Restaurant "I Mori" overlooking the Lake Maggiore and its Borromeo Islands, and free use of the Palazzo Aminta "Grotta" with Thermarium and turkish bath, ice waterfall, Aromarium, sensory and Scottish showers, and whirlpool with geyser jets.
