    Our opinion

    The welcoming Hotel Cannero reflects the quaint charm of its picturesque surroundings.

    Hotel description

    Cannero, with its winding cobbled streets, enchanting lake views and backdrop of wooded mountains, is undoubtedly one of the most unspoilt and tranquil spots on Lake Maggiore. The Hotel Cannero Lakeside Resort is fortuitously situated at one end of the promenade that separates it from the lake, next to a charming miniature harbour. Signora Gallinotto and her family, who run the Hotel Cannero, are excellent hosts and the atmosphere is relaxed and congenial. A pretty courtyard and an ancient well serve as vestiges of the 17th Century monastery that once stood on this site, but most of the original building has been restructured to make the most of its lakeside position. Public rooms have large picture windows and bedrooms are light and airy, many with beamed ceilings and balconies overlooking the serene lake, while rooms to the rear of the Hotel Cannero enjoy a view of the quiet pool area. There is also a rooftop terrace where one can sunbathe. Marvellous regional and international meals are served in the restaurant, I Castelli, and from its delightful terraces one can see the two tiny islands after which it is named. Before dining, you can visit the ancient monastery's wine cellar to choose your preferred wine. Adjacent to the hotel is the Casa del Barone. Here you will find a bar and lounge as well as an English library. Characteristic old world charm and attentive service ensure that guests of the Hotel Cannero Lakeside Resort feel relaxed and well looked after.
