Beautifully set at the heart of a century-old park shaded by a wide variety of trees and strewn with flowers that blossom in the mild climate of Lake Maggiore, the Casali della Cisterna Residence is one of the few retreats by the lake where you can spend a quiet, fully relaxed holiday. The name of the property comes from Princess Luisa Dal Pozzo della Cisterna, who received it as a wedding gift from her bridegroom in 1827. The Residence is housed in two 19th century properties once inhabited by the gardeners and sailors within the estate of Villa Claudia dei Marchesi Dal Pozzo. From every room guests enjoy a stunning view over the lake and the evocative Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso. The wide park is the ideal setting for a leisurely walk as is the private, fully equipped beach with mooring facilities. The centre of Stresa and the boarding point to all the best known resorts of Lake Maggiore are only three minutes' drive away.
