This award is only given to a few places in Italy that exhibit particular beauty and maintenance of a town, and to coasts with unpolluted water and excellent bathing facilities.

PATHS IN THE HILLS
The location of Hotel Sole is central for all the main tourist attractions. Directly from Hotel Sole, you can join some of the most beautiful paths in the hills for cycling or walking. You can also admire Lake Maggiore crossing the Cassino, Donego, Oggiogno, Trarego and Viggiona woods.
or particularly keen and fit walkers, it is possible to climb to the top of Mount Zeda, one of the highest summits in our area. It is about a five hour walk from Hotel Sole through Donego, Oggiogno, Manegra, Colle to arrive at Passo Folungo. From there, one can climb up to the top of Mount Zeda. From the summit you can admire all the mountains and valleys from the top of Piemonte: Mount Rosa, the ‘Grande’ valley, Ossola valley. To the south you can see different lakes: Maggiore, Orta, Mergozzo and Varese. On a clear day you can see Milan and the Madonnina statue on the top of the Milan Cathedral.
From Verbania, you can quickly get to the ‘Grande’ valley, reaching the small town of Cicogna: the biggest wilderness area in Italy. We can organise guided tours with specialists. An 1800-metre zip wire, 100m high, is opening this summer allowing you to “fly” from Pian d’Arla to Segletta. It is the only one in Europe. The largest tourist attractions are just a few kilometres drive away: The ‘Grande’ valley National Park, Ossola valley, Vigezzo, the Devero and Veglia nature Parks, the Formazza valley and the famous Toce waterfalls
