A real reference point for those who wish to experience a journey into the territory’s flavours and culinary tradition and for those who wish to combine their meetings with the extraordinary scenery of the lake and the pleasure of good food.

This is the Zacchera Group; a symbol of hospitality on Lake Maggiore, but also of a united family which, from father to son, has handed down a genuine philosophy of hospitality. Even today, in fact, the new generations of the Zacchera family personally take care of the management of their hotels with a courteous, professional and discreet presence. A success built over time, on strong foundations, through modesty, competence and passion, thanks to the ability to interpret and anticipate the needs of its guests.
