#1 of 4 in Belgirate
Travellers' Choice
Da ogni camera o suite che scegliate la vista e sempre la stessa...spettacolare e unica...quella del lago e del monastero di Santa Caterina del Sasso. Un soggiorno al relais Casali della Cisterna ha il fascino di una vacanza che sa d'altri tempi, quella di due edifici risalenti al XIX secolo e ristrutturati per offrire ogni comfort. Il parco secolare fa da cornice a questo splendido scenario. Le camere sono dotate di TV o smartTV a schermo piatto, aria condizionata, macchina per espresso e bollitore, minibar ed e disponibile la connessione Wi-Fi gratuita. Inoltre, per i tuoi aperitivi e le tue cene, il nostro hotel ti offre un fornitissimo bar ed enoteca e la possibilita di poter assaggiare alcune delle nostre specialita regionali quali i rinomati vini, i salumi ed i formaggi della zona, oltre a specialita italiane fatte in casa. Il tutto godendoti la vista unica del nostro lago. Il Relais Casali della Cisterna e situato a Belgirate, a due passi dalla rinomata Stresa, ma lontano dal caos. Da qui, potrai prendere il battello che porta alla scoperta delle localita piu belle del lago Maggiore. Certamente degni di visita sono le isole Borromee con i loro magnifici giardini, la Villa Pallavicino, i giardini botanici di Villa Taranto, il vicino lago d’Orta e perche no? Prendete la funivia per raggiungere la vetta del Mottarone ed ammirare la vista mozzafiato sui 7 laghi della regione. Questo e un ottimo punto di partenza per programmare la tua visita alle cantine vinicole del Piemonte e le Langhe oppure la citta d’Alba con il suo famoso tartufo o per andare a fare una bella escursione a piedi nelle nostre montagne e valli come la Val Formazza (con la cascata del Toce, la piu alta d’Europa), la Val d’Ossola, Macugnaga e l’Alpe Devero. Potrai raggiungere Belgirate anche a piedi e trovare ristoranti, bar, farmacia e la spiaggia per concederti un bagno nel lago e, se non vorrai camminare, forniamo il servizio di navetta gratuita per il centro del paese e per la spiaggia. Cosa aspetti? Questa e l’occasione giusta per venire a trovarci! Possiamo organizzare per te escursioni con guida privata, viaggi in battello, lezioni di cucina, transfer dall’aeroporto e prenotarti un tavolo in un bel ristorante con vista sul lago. A presto!

Trim, clean, friendly, family business. Our family room was huge. The beds are very confortable, the place is gorgeous with a fantastic view and a huge garden. Private parking place. We loved it. We can hear some trains because the railway isn't fare away, but it is more charming than annoying. This is a real 5 out of 5! Thank you for this moment.

Even better than the pictures. Such a romantic property. Our room was dreamy, tall windows that face the lake so even laying in bed you get amazing lake views. When we were there the sunrise and sunset colors were spectacular and so lovely to wake up too. The gardens and property are packed full of mature tall trees and wide collection of vegetation with historic significance. The dining area was full of charm and a beautiful experience. On top of all of that were the owners/hosts. They are the nicest people and more helpful than you can imagine. They helped us with restaurants, helped us with future train tickets and gave us a ride to the train station in their own car. They are ridiculously caring and helpful. Everything about our stay here was even better than expected. It's FANTASTIC!

Beautiful hotel in a gorgeous setting overlooking the lake. The family who owns and operates the hotel are helpful, passionate and proud of where the live. The grounds are immaculate and the breakfast is one of the best in Italy! The terrace outside is tranquil and a wonderful place to spend time. I cannot wait to return again and stay for a longer period of time.

I got drawn to the hotel by the wonderful staff answering all my questions in English! The rest was just smooth and wonderful. I wish I could have stayed two weeks and not one. The breakfast is amazing and so is everything else. Totally want to be back. Love this quiet breathtaking spot.

The perfect place we could imagine! Beautiful resort with unique historical architecture and design, Run by Alberto and his wife who are both super hosts! They serve great breakfast in the garden with view to the lake and help at any time with any need. The rooms are cosy and beautifully designed with an espresso machine. We had an amazing week travelling the area and are very grateful for the experience and hospitality 🙏

I can only recommend it 100%, the family runs the hotel with so much love, everything fits, they drive you to the restaurant in their private car. Everything is perfect here. The rooms are also very nice and spacious.

This place is fabulous. We stayed here twice over the last two weeks on our way to and from Switzerland. It's a family run hotel with great rooms, great views of Lake Maggiore, great breakfasts, and great dinners especially the pizza and the lasagna. The owner and his wife are very kind and helpful and their children all help as well. I highly recommend staying here. My only disappointment is that they close in late October for the winter! We wanted to stay again on our way to Switzerland!! (Flying to Milan and then driving to Switzerland)

Very nice place to stay to relax and to explore the surroundings. Beautiful setting and great location. Large and comfortable rooms with a view :) Host are very welcoming and friendly. Delicious breakfast à la carte on the terrace - great espresso! The only downside is that the railroad tracks are right behind the main building.

This is a gorgeous hotel with uninterrupted views of the lake run by a friendly couple who go the extra mile to make your stay extra special. Alberto and Simona manage to create the perfect ambiance to make this hotel something close to heaven. We just loved the generous breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the lake, with local meats and cheeses galore and a freshly baked cake every single day. (Breakfast 12.50 euros) Alberto always had a new (excellent) restaurant to recommend (and then booked for us the best tables for some of the finest food we have had for a long time). Nothing seemed too much trouble for him. And he was great on advising the best places to visit too, like the Cascata del Toce waterfall and the Maggiore Express. Our large room was beautifully furnished. We stayed in the Dinghy apartment with a large balcony overlooking the lake. It was faultless. It was great to be able to enjoy Nonna's lasagne or a home-made pizza when you didn't fancy going further than the bar, while good wifi and decent parking were also available. We were originally due to stay 5 nights. But we loved it here so much that we decided to stay an additional 6 nights - it was that good. The gardens are beautiful to stroll around, and there's a good walk into the nearest commune, Belgirate, which is about 15 mins away (they will also run you in/pick you up.) There are ferries from there to nearby Stresa three times a day. Is it too good to be true? Well there is a railway at the back of the building, but that wasn't running when we were there. And there is a road between the hotel and the lake. But you can't actually see it from the hotel, and even though our room was on the front of the hotel and I'm a light sleeper, the windows were so good that we didn't hear a thing while we were there. Location might be an issue for some people. We loved the tranquillity, the lake and the mountains. This is a great value, boutique hotel and we can't wait to go back.
