The Camin Hotel is really a dream out of another time, before chains and mass tourism turned everything on Lake Maggiore into nothing but money, money, money. Still family run by the lovely Lara and her incomparable staff--always warm, friendly, helpful, and running several kms a day to attend to your needs at some remote spot in the garden--and speaking whatever language you please. We've lived in the area for 15 years, only 15 km away, and we not only recommend this hotel to all our friends, we also stay there from time to time ourselves! Something we'd never done anywhere else. Our recommendation is based not on one stay, not on two or three, but on many--ours and friends combined, both as a couple and as a family. We also go regularly in summer just to enjoy the beautiful gardens for an aperitif and the terrace for dinner. This is really one of the most extraordinary settings on the entire lake: the shore makes a rare bend here to strech east to west, so that you have a full view directly to the south rather than simply across to the other side. And the entire stretch is taken up by the botanical garden that once was the private preserve of this ancient villa. Along that stretch you'll find a relaxing lakefront lawn, a unique old glass-and-iron-filigree green house, a playground for kids, even a jacuzzi way out on the most extreme point, as if you're taking a warm bath in the lake itself. In other words, it is a small miracle that the Camin Hotel remains reasonably priced with such personal flair and inimitable charm. Come and enjoy it while it lasts--but don't look for the plastic luxury of so-called 4 or 5 star chain hotels; enjoy the odd turns and creaky floor here and there, leave your work and worries behind, smell the beautiful roses and just relax!
