The Castel on the Lake Maggiore

April – October

From: april to october

Minimum: from 6 people

Duration: 7 days

The Castello Dal Pozzo, a stunning historic residence, once a Roman Castrum, was built in the 10th century. Completely restored by Claudio Dal Pozzo D’Annone has been in the Dal Pozzo D’Annone family for six generations. Surrounded by history and by the lush landscapes of the impressive Lake Maggiore, this residence is today a Luxury Hotel at the core of our most exclusive and elegant offer, an incredible and unforgettable experience, that will give two-wheel lovers the chance of riding across unexpected and rich in history landscapes and paths.

The passion for bicycle, which bonds Guendalina Dal Pozzo D’Annone to Victoursbike cycling concierge, gave birth to this project and brought to the launch of this dream on two wheels.

Thanks to this astonishing location we can make this experience unique from every point of view: daily group rides supported by Victoursbike’s staff, on wonderful routes designed by Guendalina, plunging into the magical atmosphere of these lands : the Borromean islands, Santa Caterina del Sasso, the Statue of San Carlo, the botanical gardens of Villa Taranto, the enchanted Centovalli Railway. Furthermore, the Colombo Cashmere , Ermenegildo Zegna outlet and Alessi exhibition are some of the manufacturing excellences of the area.

Victoursbike is going to cycle with the group on chosen routes adapted on guests’ needs and preferences. Challenging Tracks will be met, as the Cento Valli tour (180 kilometres across the Val Grande national park), the climb to the Orpa sanctuary, the complete tour of Lake Maggiore (173 kilometres ), the Three Lakes tour(79 kilometres with agility), arriving in Varese taking the bicycles on the ferry or facing the Mottarone gradient of 1000 metres.

Riders will always be assisted by Victoursbike staff: support and mechanic van, replacement materials, spare outfits (in case of bad weather), liquid drinks, power bars and coffee break at your leisure. Every route will be submitted the evening before and agreed or modified according to the group’s needs and the weather conditions. Guests will be provided with GPX/GPS tracks of the daily route to upload them to their bike computers. Bicycles will be checked and cleaned up every evening.

Going back to the hotel will be the continuation of a wonderful and hard to forget experience: strolling near the pool and the park, waiting for a taste of the wine from the cellar or for the barbeques in the garden, before taking part to the guided tour to enjoy the still unveiled wonders of Castello Dal Pozzo D’Annone.
