The Castle on Lake Maggiore
Tour (April – October)
From: April to October
Minimum: 6 people
Duration: 7 days
The Castello Dal Pozzo, a stunning historic residence, was once a Roman fortress, built in the 10th century. It was completely restored by Claudio Dal Pozzo D’Annone and has been in the Dal Pozzo D’Annone family for six generations. Surrounded by history and the lush landscapes of the impressive Lake Maggiore, this residence is now a luxury hotel, at the core of our most exclusive and elegant offering. It’s an incredible and unforgettable experience that will give two-wheel lovers the chance of riding across unexpected and rich historical landscapes and paths.
Passion for the bicycle, bonds Guendalina Dal Pozzo D’Annone to our Victours Bike cycling concierge and together, they gave birth to this project; our dream on two wheels.
Thanks to this astonishing location, we can make this experience unique from every point of view. Our daily group rides are supported by Victours Bike’s staff, on wonderful routes designed by Guendalina. We will plunge 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, and the enchanted Centovalli Railway. Furthermore, the Colombo Cashmere and Ermenegildo Zegna outlets and Alessi Museum are some of the manufacturing excellences of the area.
Victours Bike staff will ride with the group on chosen routes adapted to our 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 Victours Bike staff: support and mechanic van, replacement parts, spare outfits (in case of bad weather), liquid drinks, power bars and coffee breaks at your leisure. Every route will be determined the evening before and agreed upon 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 to their bike computers. Bicycles will be checked and cleaned every evening.
The ride back to the hotel will be the continuation of a wonderful and memorable experience. Followed by a stroll near the pool and park, waiting for a taste of wine from the cellar or for barbeques in the garden. We will also enjoy a guided tour to enjoy the unveiled wonders of Castello Dal Pozzo D’Annone.
