Gourmet gastronomy with a side of Campo dei Fiori views at a hideaway near Lake Maggiore - with flights, car hire, a six-course tasting menu and more

With delicious Lombardy cuisine in their Michelin-forked restaurant, spectacular views over the Italian countryside and an unbeatable location close to Lake Maggiore, the 17th-century Albergo Colonne doesn't do things by halves. Epitomising la dolce vita under one roof, this gourmet hideaway has retained its period charm, with dark wood shutters, marble fireplaces, centuries-old wall frescoes and spacious rooms with balconies showcasing breathtaking views over Campo dei Fiori.

Views aside, the piece de resistance here is the restaurant, where exceptional Michelin-starred chef Silvio Battistoni serves up lip-smacking Lombard cuisine, such as fettuccine with fresh porcini mushrooms, lobster linguine, and Lombardy beef. When you're not indulging, the beautiful surrounding countryside and the UNESCO listed Sacro Monte di Varese sacred mountain awaits. A ride on the newly restored funicular railway is a scenic way to reach the site. Unsurprisingly, Albergo Colonne boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
