Of the recent new hotels in the region of the Italian lakes, the Hotel Cortese in Armeno represents a uniquely successful example of the skillful blending of tradition and modernity. A perfect synthesis which, when expressed through the charm of this authentic architectural jewel at the heart of an incomparable location, provides the ideal setting in which to celebrate your wedding in refined style.
The use of local stone, precious woods and wrought-iron (typical crafts of the area) create a unique and charming atmosphere in which time seems to stop, allowing us to recover the pleasures of life at a slower pace – and thus to savour that most special of happy days.
Immersed in the tranquil scenic surroundings of Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore, only minutes away from the village of Orta San Giulio, the town of Stresa and the spectacular panorama of Mount Mottarone, the Hotel Cortese enjoys the magical atmosphere of a little historic village: the use of local stone, precious woods and wrought-iron (typical crafts of the area) create a unique and charming atmosphere in which time seems to stop, allowing us to recover the pleasures of life at a slower pace – and thus to savour that most special of happy days.
Thanks to these characteristics, the Hotel Cortese offers the perfect special location in which to hold your wedding reception; the ideal ambience for that once-in-a-lifetime occasion, where the meticulous and impeccable organization of your reception will be sure to make it an exclusive and memorable occasion. At Hotel Cortese we offer bridal couples, and others who wish to hold a special celebration here, the chance to enjoy their special day to the full, while we dedicate our passion and professional expertise to all those details which contribute to the success of the event, calling on our long experience in this sector.
Another great merit of our hotel is without doubt its cuisine; not for nothing is Armeno known as ‘the village of hotelkeepers’. For more than four centuries this area has sent thousands of talented cooks out into the best restaurants and hotels across the world, many of them making their name as leading chefs of international repute. You can be assured therefore that our chefs at the Hotel Cortese of Armeno will know how to delight your guests’ palates, preparing your wedding banquet with the utmost professionality and expertise. All our dishes are prepared at the last moment to guarantee maximum freshness and quality. You can choose to have the banquet served in the atmospheric internal courtyard of the hotel, by the pool-side, under the gazebo or in the hotel’s main hall, which has a grand piano.
For the bridal couple and their guests we have available 34 rooms with panoramic views of the hills of Lake Orta or of the chain of the Alps. The religious ceremony can be celebrated in the nearby Romanesque Church of Santa Maria Assunta, in Armeno, – one of the oldest and most beautiful churches of the area, or in the Sanctuary of the Bocciola, also close by, from where you can enjoy a spectacular panorama of the lake and the island of San Giulio.
For those who have chosen instead a civil ceremony, there is the possibility of celebrating the wedding at the romantic Villa Bossi at Orta San Giulio, only a few minutes by car from Hotel Cortese — this venue, too, immersed in some of Italy’s most beautiful scenery. After the ceremony and the photographs on the village square, on the charming slopes of the Motta and at Sacro Monte di Orta, Hotel Cortese will be waiting to welcome you for a joyful and unforgettable celebration of the occasion.
