Relais Casali della Cisterna
, Strada vecchia alle sale N.8, Belgirate.
Set in a century-old park of trees and shrubs on the edge of Lake Maggiore, the hotel Casali della Cisterna is one of the few places on the lake where it is possible to spend time in total relaxation and peace, thanks to its beautiful garden and its small, private beach. The hotel was created by the joining together of the two old buildings that were once servant’s quarters for the nearby Villa Claudia. Still in the ownership of the Marquis dal Pozzo, every attention is given to the pleasure of the hotel guests.
Nothing but the terraces and lawns separate the hotel from the lake, ensuring a wonderful panorama from every corner of the hotel. Even the fitness room faces the lake so energetic guests can run or pedal towards the water, or row away from it. Keeping to a more sedate pace, there are lovely walks through the wooded gardens, admiring the numerous botanical specimens and taking in glimpses of the lake through the trees.
Breakfast and drinks are available in the brick-vaulted bar or outside on the terrace.
Most of the guest accommodation is in suites, either junior suites of around 32 sqm or full suites of about 50 sqm each. There is also a 23 sqm double room which although smaller (23 m2 is hardly “small”!), shares all the luxuries like the comprehensive lake views, a marble en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, tea and coffee-making, wi-fi, a safe, minibar and television. Several of the suites have large private terraces, and a couple of others have balconies.
The free car park includes charging points for electric vehicles.
