Subject to budgets we would recommend the Suite La Borromea with lake view or the Liz Taylor suite with view. Simply perfect for wedding couples. We would also recommend if you are after a small intimate wedding, just the 2 of you or 6 of you, then why not have the ceremony with canapes and drinks on your suite's terrace, simply magical. 

 

There are different areas where the ceremony can take place – The garden Belvedere which can accommodate between 30 to 300 guests. In case of bad weather, guests can move inside to the Borromeo meeting room which is their biggest space. There is the restaurant where the reception can take place – The Mori offering breathtaking views of the lake and mountains from its superb iron and crystal round shape Liberty style gazebo that overlooks Lake Maggiore and its world-famous Borromeo Islands. Open every evening and furnished with elegant wrought-iron tables and chairs with armrests, cushions, and glasses and with an impressive Murano glass chandelier, it offers a typical Italian cuisine experience with local dishes from Lombardy as well as Piedmont's culinary heritage and a vintage a la carte wine list. The restaurant can accommodate up to 35 guests. Then there is Le Isole – a gourmet restaurant that overlooks the banks of  Lake Maggiore. With an amazing summer terrace in front of the three Borromeo Islands and its beautifully furnished rooms, rich in stuccos and precious décor. Open every day for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and gourmet dinner and the restaurant can accommodate up to 185 guests inside and 60 on the panoramic terrace. Quote, Reference 1918.
