Nestled in the heart of Lombardy, close to Piedmont and Switzerland, in the foothills of the Swiss-Italian Pre-Alps, our two hotels at Varese and at Colmegna on the shores of Lake Maggiore provide the perfect launchpad from which to explore the best lakeside riding and and the mountainous roads in between. Amateurs can take part in the UCI Gran Fondo World Series Tre Valli Varesine every October. In 2018 Varese hosted the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.
