“Mediterranean lakeside manor”

Time and space – for yourself, for your family, to explore, to enjoy – all rare to come by in everyday life. Castello del Sole is not everyday life (if only!). If you need to soak up the sunshine, the space to do it is on the private beach right by Lake Maggiore. If it’s time for self-pampering, the space is in the spa, all 2,500 sq. m. of it. Time with family is well spent hiking, golfing, swimming – that is, if you can tempt the little ones out of the kid’s club. When it’s time to enjoy life, the space is here, in the Castle of the Sun. 

Best time to visit : April to October

What we Love

What we absolutely love about the property and feel sure will dazzle you too.
  • 100 hectares means there’s plenty of space to spread out and enjoy
  • We love the casually formal vibe of the property with a 16th century original building plus newer wings
  • Hiking, tennis, golf, and boating are just a few of the many ways to enjoy the great outdoors
  • An on-site farm provides fresh produce for the menus (including cereals for pasta, risotto rice, fruit and veg) – it doesn’t get much fresher!
