I had the pleasure of spending 10 days this summer at Antico Palazzo.
This is the most beautiful villa, or palace, I have ever seen. My room overlooked Lake Maggiore, and upon the beautiful gardens and sturgeon swimming in the fountain on their breathtaking property. Massimo and Natalie treated my girlfriend and I, and the other guests as well, as if we were family. They are extremely accommodating; served up excellent food, creative alcoholic concoctions; and recommended off the beaten path restaurants that were fantastic. The villa itself is like a museum; unbelievable in its enormity, architecture, paintings, statues, and just interesting curiosities. Having drinks and/or breakfast on the patio was absolutely wonderful, and had me debating giving up my 9-5 in New York City. The most amazing part of the stay were the thunderstorms; absolutely beautiful lightning, lighting up the sky; believe it or not, they were very romantic...thank god I had my girlfriend to hide under the covers with. :) I absolutely recommend Antico Palazzo to anybody; it was as beautiful as it was romantic.
Don't miss out on this gem!
