Romantic Stresa



CAPPUCCINO HEARTS - love photo
Even the cappuccinos are always romantic...

365 days a year Stresa is, in my opinion, one of the most romantic locations one can imagine. Just stroll along the lungolago, or admire the view from one of the mountaintop locations, or taking a nighttime boatride past the Borromean islands... Stresa exudes romance sempre, always. So how can one top that on il giorno di San Valentino? What places here are extra-specially romantic? From the many special offerings I like the idea of these:

The Hotel Iles des Borromees offered a special Valentine's package which included a room, a romantic candle-lit dinner featuring a special menu of shrimp and squab, and in the morning, a room-service breakfast of champagne and pastries and love cake. The entire package was 176 euro for two people, which made it an incredible discount for this five-star hotel, and what better night to experience such luxury than this one?

Mt. Mottarone and the other ski resorts in the area are also offering special discounts for this weekend. I like this idea as well... a day of skiing, and then a warm and romantic drink of fil de fer by the fireplace would be a wonderful way to spend the day.

Or, make a day trip up to Premia Terme and be pampered in this spa and natural hot springs. Surrounded by snow-covered mountains, relaxing in the saunas and turkish baths in peace and tranquility, sounds a wonderful way to reconnect and relax.

At the beautiful 18th century Villa Giulia in Pallanza there is a special performance today by a baroque ensemble of one of the most romantic stories of all time, that of Orpheus and Eurydice. Perhaps this music, in this setting, followed by a romantic dinner in one of Pallanza's lakefront restaurants, would make this day an unforgettable one.

But the best thing, to me, about all of the above ideas, is that they can be enjoyed on any day of the year. Maybe we need St. Valentines Day to remind us of this fact, that each day puo essere cosi, it can be so, but I think you'll find here in Stresa that you'll be reminded of romance sempre. Take these ideas and thoughts with you, whenever you may be here.
Buon San Valentino a tutti...


To live is to love. Everything else is just details. -- Paolo Coehlo


And don't forget the recent award bestowed on Hotel Belvedere, on Isola Pescatore, by TripAdvisor, as one of the most romantic hotels in Europe.
