Hotel Villa Ruscello

Hotel Villa Ruscello, the most beautiful view of Lake Maggiore

Hotel Villa Ruscello was opened in 1959 by Pierluigi and Lia Cardani. Today it is managed by their family.
The name of the hotel reveals its origin: it is a typical early 20th century Italian Villa, surrounded by a large terraced garden and crossed by a little creek [the Italian word “ruscello” means “creek”]. Today the old Dependence, where originally the custodian of the Villa once lived, hosts most of the hotel rooms. In the Villa there are the superior rooms, the reception and the breakfast room available to all hotel guests. Please note: as these are historical buildings, there is no A/C or lift in the Villa and in the Dependence.
The hotel is located between Baveno and Stresa, overlooking the Borromean Gulf, thus offering an enchanting and unparalleled view of the Islands. The hotel is in front of the lake, separated only by Strada Statale del Sempione [the panoramic highway that connects Italy to Switzerland]. Guests can easily access the large private parking area coming from the highway. (At night the parking area gate remains closed ).
A large gazebo equipped with a table and chairs allows our guests to eat “al fresco”. A brick barbecue is available to all our guests who would like to get grilling (leftover food and beverages can be stored in the hotel fridges).
The hotel has direct access to the lake though a short flight of stairs that from the parking area lead directly to the private beach. A locking dock allows guests to store inflatable air mats and children beach toys for the duration of their stay.
Pets are welcome at no extra charge.
