GRAND TOUR - LEG 1: Milan to Innsbruck 20, 21 & 22 July 2018

Whilst we have made the below recommendations for Hotels, it is important to state that Members are welcome to stay wherever they wish along the routes. Whilst the Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees is our formal rendezvous point, Members are welcome to deviate from the route and re-join each morning from the closest location to their Hotel.

On the final night we will provide an end location where all Members can join together for a drink before going their separate ways.

5* Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees
Corso Umberto I, 67
28838 Stresa VB
Tel: +39 0323 938 938

Undoubtedly the most exclusive hotel on Lake Maggiore, the Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromées represents beauty and luxury, all combined with first-rate facilities and enchanting views of the Borromean Islands and the Alps. Located just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Stresa, this magnificent hotel opened in 1863 and has played host to a number of prominent guests, including Ernest Hemingway and Clark Gable.

A wealth of facilities include stylish public rooms, the elegant Restaurant Il Borromeo, a health club, tennis court and swimming and diving pools.

Friday 20 July, Guttannen, Switzerland

3* Hotel und Naturresort Handeck
3864 Guttannen
+41 33 982 36 11
Rooms from £225

The hotel is situated on Alp Handeck at the foot of the Grimsel pass. Never in their wildest dreams could the herdsmen and packhorse drivers of yore have foreseen this: life on “their” Alp Handeck is very comfortable today. Spread over three buildings, newly designed modern alpine-style rooms provide a restful getaway. Our adult guests will find relaxation in the well-being oasis, whilst the children let off steam in the large play area. In addition, our guests in the Handeck Nature Resort will have very good reason to smile, while bathing in the heated outdoor pool (32°). The Grimsel scenery at Grimselworld is a real tonic – from secluded spots by the water to vertical adrenaline rushes. After a long hike you can look forward to a superb evening meal in the elegant restaurant or the cosy parlour..

Saturday 21 July, Pontresina, Switzerland

5* Grand Hotel Kronenhof
Via Maistra 130

Historic architecture, modern light-flooded rooms and suites, one of the best spas in the world and the prime location in the heart of the Swiss Alps – this unique mix exuding of the magic of a bygone era, modern comforts and stunning nature makes the Grand Hotel Kronenhof an unrivalled landmark. The Neo-Baroque building is one of the most architectonically important 19th century hotels in the Alps. After an extensive renovation in 2007 the listed historic building is celebrated as one of the best luxury and spa hotels in the world. In 2009 the Grand Hotel Kronenhof was awarded with the title GaultMillau Hotel of the Year. In 2016, the house was also recognized as the best spa resort in the country at the World Luxury Spa Awards. 
The ambience of the rooms and suites is exclusive and comfortable where technical comfort and attention to detail leaves nothing to be desired. The views from the rooms and from the over 2000 m2 sprawling Spa provides majestically views over the glaciers of the Bernina, the charming Val Roseg as well as the surrounding pine and larch forests.
