The Parco San Marco hotel in Cima, near Porlezza is a real find. It is a family hotel but its geared to couples as well. The facilities are excellent and the buffet breakfast, open until 11am each morning has something for everyone and the array of breads is fantastic.
The staff, all the staff, are cheerful, polite and really helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean and the views of the lake and mountains are breathtaking.
We were able to walk to Porlezza - its about 1 1/2 miles away but if you can't do this then you will need to hire a car. There is only one restaurant in walking distance and even that includes a short stretch without a pavement. However, the grounds of the hotel are so lovely we didn't feel the need to go far afield.
We can thoroughly recommend the Parco San Marco for a short break in the Italian Lakes.
