Hotel 3 Star in Piemonte, Italy

Property Details of Piemonte Hotel 3 Star

This charming small hotel is housed in a 15th century palazzo, once a Franciscan monastery, in Cannobio, a captivating village on the shores of Lake Maggiore. Sympathetic restoration of the building has successfully established perfect harmony between the ancient structure and the functional requirements of a modern hotel. The Hotel Pironi today boasts a blend of original frescoes, antiques, vaulted ceilings, medieval stone columns and examples of modern furnishing. The impeccable and discreet service combined with the magic of the building itself make the Hotel Pironi the ideal setting for a relaxing stay. The twelve rooms, each with its own special atmosphere and unique furnishings, will appeal to those with an eye for detail and successfully transmit a sense of ease and great comfort. Quiet, exclusive and comprehensively equipped, our stylishly elegant rooms all feature pieces of antique furniture. A number offer relaxing views of the lake while others overlook the pedestrian streets of the historic village centre. The room in which our buffet breakfast is served is an eighteenth century jewel, with frescoed walls and ceilings and an original terracotta floor. On the first floor, the sophisticated salon with its wonderful fireplace is ideal for reading, conversation and working or simply as a place in which to spend a pleasantly relaxed and tranquil evening. The palazzo's old cellars have been converted into an extremely atmospheric bar-tavern with stone walls and vaulted ceilings. Ideal for an aperitif, a light snack or perhaps a sample from the broad and carefully chosen range of fine wines and grappas.

Local Area Details

Lake Maggiore is the most westerly of the three large prealpine lakes of Italy and the second largest after Lake Garda. The western bank is in Piedmont and the eastern in Lombardy, whereas the most northerly section extends thirteen kilometres into Switzerland.
For walkers there are well marked paths which lead up into a hinterland of scenic mountain hikes and remote villages facing the Lake: Val Formazza, with its Toce Falls, Val Vigezzo, nicknamed "The painter's valley", Valle Anzasca, which peaks with the Walser habitat of Macugnaga, and Valle Antrona, which boasts fascinating alpine tarns. The Val Grande Natural Park, the most extensive wild area in central Europe, is set in the upper part of the lake.
The lake is also famous for the Borromean Islands, which dwell the gulf facing Stresa: Isola Bella, known for the big baroque building and the splendid terraced garden; Isola Madre, the largest among the Borromeo Islands with its botanical garden rich of camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons and age-old trees; Isola Pescatori, which hosts a picturesque village still inhabited.
The nearby Lake Orta is an ideal starting point to visit the characteristic village of Orta and the enchanting San Giulio Island.
Going northwarths there is Verbania, colourful city full of shops which hosts the botanical gardens of Villa Taranto and Villa San Remigio.
Cannobio is located on the shores of the spectacular western end of the lake. It has made a particular point of retaining intact most of its natural, historical and architectural heritage which includes Roman remains, Medieval art and 18th century architecture.
The town is a good starting point for excursions to the natural attraction called "Orrido di Sant'Anna" (a deep gorge cut into the rock by the waters of the river) and the Cannobina Valley. Accommodation is widely available, with the visitors able to choose from any number of hotels of all categories, apartments, bed & breakfast and campsites.
There are numerous sports facilities available, such as tennis courts and cycle and mountain bike tracks. Cannobio has its own Lido at the north end of town with a large sandy beach, and the waters offshore are renowed for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing.
The lake offers another activity that can be practised on the hills, in touch with nature, that is golf. In this magnificent scenary, international architects have realized exciting and high-quality fields: the Golf Club Patriziale of Ascona, the Golf Gerre of Losone and the Golf Club des Iles Borromees in Stresa.
The Canton Ticino in Switzerland boasts cities of artistic and cultural heritage: Ascona, famous for the Ascona Jazz Festival; Locarno, known for its old city, the International Film Festival (one of the top events of Switzerland), and the International camellias exhibit; Bellinzona, with its medieval castles. In the Verzasca, Maggia and Centovalli valleys there are many fascinating paths and excursions to undertake.
Lovers of shopping will enjoy the traditional colourful market in Cannobio. Well known are also the markets in Luino and Verbania.
The area boasts also several outlets such as Fox town in Mendrisio and Alessi in Omegna.
