Built in 1870, the Grand Hotel Majestic in Verbania, is a stunning example of renewed Belle Époque architecture that welcomes guests into its refined and elegant environment while enjoying an enchanting view of Lago Maggiore.
Located just minutes from the picturesque town of Pallanza in a prime position on a promontory overlooking the lake, the property is surrounded by beautiful gardens and stunning views of the Borromeo Islands, the surrounding mountains and the lake itself.
As a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, the Majestic works hard not only to deliver exclusive excellence in service, but also to keep a sustainable relationship with the environment. The hotel is even part of the Italian Ecolabel Legambiente, which disseminates the culture and the good practices of waste prevention in the tourism sector.
Once again, Verbania (home of Grand Hotel Majestic) was just ranked among the most environmentally friendly places to live for sustainable living in all of Italy. This important distinction comes from the respected Italian environmental organization Legambiente in its report “Urban Ecosystem”.The Food & the Wine
Piedmont is the region where the ‘Slow Food movement’ began, aimed to defend regional traditions, good food, gastronomic pleasure and a slow pace of life. Today, Slow Food represents a global movement involving thousands of projects and millions of people in over 160 countries.
La Beola, the hotel’s main restaurant, stays true to the movement, offering traditional recipes recreated with a modern flare. Don’t forget to enjoy the spectacular views of Lago Maggiore while you dine!
Piedmont is one of the great wine growing regions in Italy, best known for producing Barolo and Barbaresco. More than half of its 700 square kilometres of vineyards are registered with DOC designations. In 2014, the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato areas (which includes the hills of Barolo, Barbaresco and Nizza Monferrato) had the honor of achieving UNESCO status, conferred because of the historical significance, economic importance and cultural heritage that have tied its men and women to the land for over 2000 years. The vineyard landscape consists of five distinct winegrowing areas, offering panoramas of carefully cultivated hillsides and hilltop villages.
