With passion,
in Ranco.


Originally a tavern when it opened its doors back in 1865, the Belvedere is now a stylish hotel with stunning views over the banks of Lake Maggiore in the peaceful setting of Ranco, a tiny gem of a town on the Lombard side of the lake.

The Belvedere is run by the Merzagora family who take great care to provide a friendly service and actively ensure guests enjoy the perfect holiday.

At the Belvedere you will find all the comforts and services you expect from a bike hotel and also the exclusive opportunity to master the secrets and techniques of fishing on the lake. And, If you are here on business, we have a fully-equipped convention room that can accommodate forty people. Its location offers the ideal starting point for your trips on Lake Maggiore and exploring the magnificent surrounding countryside, from the Alps and the verdant hills steeped in history and culture to the characteristic lakeside villages and famous, picturesque Borromean islands. The Belvedere is also a celebrated restaurant. Our dishes have a local flavour and we try to offer our guests a ‘taste of the lakes’ complemented by seasonal fare. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming in the winter, while dining on the terrace with panoramic views over the lake guarantees a unique, absolutely magical experience in the summer. We love Lake Maggiore and look forward to showing you all it has to offer.

When discovering the area around Lake Maggiore, Ranco is the ideal place to start for an exciting range of excursions. It is situated on the Lombard side of the lake and the Piedmontese side is just a few miles away and can be easily accessed using the ferry services on Lake Maggiore.

Choose between Stresa and the celebrated Borromean islands, Arona and its imposing statue of San Carlo and the magnificent Rocca Borromea, Angera and its famous castle, the Vergante hills and Mottarone, the magic and mystery of the hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso, the spectacular gardens at Villa Taranto, the valleys and lakes of the area around Varese, and the Alpine foothills of Piedmont and Lombardy.

But why stop there? Ranco is less than forty miles from Milan, and the motorway is within easy reach as is the train station in nearby Sesto Calende.
