Find an Alpine oasis at Castello del Sole, nestled within a 35-acre estate on the edge of Lake Maggiore. Located just 85 miles from Zurich, this historic, 79-room hotel – originally a Franciscan monastery built in 1532 – boasts a private beach, beautiful garden, and a bird sanctuary that inspires serenity. Go hiking, play tennis, or tour the rice fields before a risotto-making lesson with the chef. Plus, indulge in vino-aqua spa therapy using ingredients from the on-site vineyards.
