History & Story
Directly on the shores of Lake Maggiore, the Hotel Eden Roc attracts visitors with its 10,000 m2 Mediterranean Garden of Eden and palm tree-fringed shoreline.

The diverse culinary palette offers four excellent restaurants and two bars. The gourmet Restaurant La Brezza has been awarded 2 Michelin stars and 17 GaultMillau Points and Executive Chef Marco Campanella was voted hotel chef of the year in 2020. The historic restaurant La Casetta serves grilled specialities from the lake just outside. The Restaurant Eden Roc serves up bold interpretations of classic dishes, while the Restaurant Marina and lounge celebrate a more carefree lifestyle.

Two of these are just a stone’s throw away.
