Camin Hotel Colmegna is a magnificent 18th Century Art Nouveau style villa which sits on the shores of Lake Maggiore with a large romantic park and botanical gardens. It has an outdoor bar, sun loungers, a jacuzzi, and a playground with panoramic lake views.
The creators of the hotel have put a lot of thought into ensuring that you can relax and enjoy the cosy and atmospheric environment with stylish decor and furnishings. The entire set design is very maritime, and you always have views of the lake, whether you are in the hotel or relaxing in the large park with banana trees and other exotic plants around you.
The hotel has a small private lake-beach in a picturesque setting. from where you can swim in the lake. If you are feeling energetic, you can rent boats and bikes here and explore the lake and the land around it. Wi-Fi internet is available in the main hall and in all of the rooms, and there is free parking for all guests arriving by car. Pets are also welcome.
There is a restaurant at the hotel, so if you wish to stay in the surroundings without moving the car, you can. Otherwise you can drive to Luino (4km) where there are some restaurants or to Maccagno where there is even more choice. We must warn you though, that the views of the lake from the restaurant are breathtaking and some diners might find it difficult to concentrate on eating! There is an indoor section and two patios with views to choose from. There is also a pizzeria nearby.
The 26 rooms are particularly neat and stylish with elegant cast iron beds, wicker furniture, real quilts-duvets (that we are used to in the North of Europe!), desks, and of course double glazing to reduce the noise from the nearby, slightly busy road that runs around the lake. They also have a safety deposit box, a mini-bar, satellite TV, a telephone, a bathroom with a hairdryer, a toilet and shower. All rooms have a lake view. Double rooms cannot accommodate an extra bed, so families with children can choose one of the three or four-bed rooms. The difference between the standard double rooms and higher room categories is primarily the size of the room and the bathroom. About half of the rooms have air conditioning. The six deluxe rooms are all located in the attic and have space for an extra bed. Several of them are connected by a door, which is a good solution for families.
In addition to the rooms the hotel also offers three well-appointed apartments, located just approx. 300 metres from the hotel which were renovated in 2005. They are decorated in a Mediterranean style, and 2 of them have a beautiful lake view. They are just 100 metres from the lake shore. Apartment guests can also make use of the hotel's facilities and parking. Note that you must climb some steep stairs to reach the apartments.
