Lake Maggiore

Snow-capped mountains, crystal waters and the Borromeo Islands welcome you to this romantic part of Italy.
The main town on its shores, Stresa, the so-called “Pearl of the Lake”, has been visited over the centuries by many poets, and silver screen divas and writers who came as part of their Grand Tour. Leading hotels in the area are the heritage of this glorious past.

Hemingway wrote his “A Farewell to Arms” sitting in a wonderful suite of one of the most beautiful hotels in Stresa, overlooking the lake and its islands. At the end of the story, Henry, the main character deserts the army and heads to Stresa, into the arms of the British nurse he’s crazy about. How could you not fall into romantic imaginings about Henry and Catherine at the Hotel des Iles Borromees?

The Borromeo Islands are the perfect frame for your wedding pictures.
White peacocks roam in the garden, tame and free. The garden is set on many different levels, each set back from the other, adorned with statues that wave at you from the terraces.
Pretty and traditional restaurants can host an intimate reception just by the shore.
Pink paved paths run along Pallanza lakefront just facing Stresa on the other side of the Lake. A peaceful little village where you will find the magic spot for your wedding.
18th century villas overlooking the lake can be the setting for a refined yet relaxed party.

 

Lake Orta

Ideal for a romantic and intimate wedding, Lake Orta is the authentic little gem of the Italian Lake district, easily reachable from Malpensa and situated just a few kilometres from Lake Maggiore (link alla pagina lake maggiore).

Painted houses and old medieval stone buildings enclose narrow cobblestone alleys along the shore.
Catholic weddings on Lake Orta are celebrated in the 17th century church in the heart of Orta San Giulio village, or on top of the hill, in the sanctuary with great views of the lake.
Outdoor civil weddings on Lake Orta are held at Villa Bossi, a romantic lake-view venue where ceremonies are performed in the Italian garden facing the lake and brides usually arrive by rowing boat.
The Piazzetta (the town’s main square) opens onto the shores where small boats await visitors wanting to reach the lake’s island Isola San Giulio. The tiny island is a great photographic setting for wedding pictures when bride and groom enjoy some time on their own and unwind after the ceremony.

Lake Orta is a great area for those looking for an authentic and off the beaten track destination wedding in Italy.
