Castello Dal Pozzo: a luxury oasis on Lake Maggiore

Castello Dal Pozzo

Unforgettable experiences amidst history, nature and gastronomy.

Lake Maggiore has always fascinated aristocrats, writers, and intellectuals. It has been a destination of the Grand Tour since the 1700s, it was visited on several occasions (1800, 1811, and 1828) by the famous author of “Madame Bovary,” Gustave Flaubert, who in his manuscript “Promenade dans Rome,” expressed words of fascination for the Lake: “it is the most voluptuous place I have ever seen in the world. Nature enchants with a thousand unknown seductions, and one feels in a state of rare sensuality and refinement.”

Castello Dal Pozzo stands on the Piedmontese shores of this enchanting body of water nestled between Piedmont, Lombardy, and Switzerland. With its timeless views of beauty, representing the ideal summer destination for those seeking a romantic retreat with the charm of bygone times or an enchanted place to celebrate memorable occasions.

Thanks to the architecture of the Castle, rebuilt in the 17th century, and transformed into a unique example in Italy of Victorian neo-Gothic style by the architect Richard Popwell Pullan, guests will immerse themselves in an aristocratic atmosphere of yesteryears while still enjoying modern comforts. Surrounding the Castle is a sprawling English park spanning approximately 24 hectares, featuring caves, streams, ponds, ancient trees, and flowered avenues. It’s an ideal setting for leisurely strolls, introspective moments, or simply letting one’s thoughts wander.
