The hotel

Il Portico in Cannobio, with its privileged position, is the ideal solution for those wishing to visit Upper Lake Maggiore.

We are in the center, on the enchanting lakeside of Cannobio, in front of the landing stage and on the sides of the Sanctuary of the SS. Compassion.

The history of the Portico is linked to the Sanctuary and the Miracle of the Santissima Pietà: it was born in 1989 from the renovation of the Casa del Pellegrino, built in the 1970s to serve the Sanctuary to welcome the then numerous faithful.

There are several features still present that refer to its origin: the large paintings of the early ‘700 recently restored that tell the story of the Miracle, the vaulted ceilings of the dining room obtained from the cellars of the Sanctuary, the windows in the living room, from which you can enjoy an incomparable view, the sober lines, the large common areas, the sound of the bells that marks the time of the day.

Bars, restaurants, shops and the well-known Sunday market are next door, just as we are immersed in the events that animate the lively summer of Cannobio.

The Lido Park, which continues with a pleasant walking circuit on the cycle / pedestrian path and reaches the suggestive Orrido di Sant’Anna, is within walking distance.

Furthermore we are just a few kilometers from the Swiss border: Ascona and the Jazz festival, Locarno with its Film Festival, the international music reviews of Moon & amp; Stars, the Valleys of the Canton of Ticino, are very close.

At the Portico we have different rooms by type and category: all have private bathrooms, satellite TV and Wi-Fi; some enjoy a wonderful view of the lake, others, more peaceful, of the garden of Villa Pianta: our dependance, a quiet and cool late 18th century mansion, expertly renovated, which since 2000 completes our offer and overlooks its beautiful garden on the alleys of Via Castello in Cannobio.

At the Portico we have an excellent restaurant, also open to those who do not stay in the hotel, which delights us with the flavors of the Italian tradition and beyond.

From April to September, even beyond if the season allows it, the service is on the terrace, a cozy corner of tranquility directly on the lakefront.

Il Portico has a large private car park which is closed at night.
The environment is refined but informal, suitable for everyone. Impossible not to feel at ease!
