My husband and I just returned from Stress a few weeks ago and stayed at Hotel du Parc for three nights....all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The location could not be any better being a five minute walk into the center of the adorable little town. From there you can sit in the square sipping wine and shop and people watch....or take the ferry back and forth to the various villages. Iso Bella is not to be missed....and only a 10 minute ferry ride away. The gardens are beyond spectacular and so is the palace. if you have a car it is worth it to drive 45 mins to the medieval village or Orta....stunning and charming. Now, back to the hotel. The staff was very helpful and extremely friendly. The rooms were fine and so was the price. We stayed on the third floor and from our window you could see the lake and all the little rooftops. Breakfast was in a big sunlit room with just about anything you would want. We loved our three day stay there.
