Locanda dei Mai Intees

A 15th-century village turned magnificent hotel

Locanda dei Mai Intees

Lake Maggiore. Lake Como. Milan. See them all from Locanda dei Mai Intees, our charming four-star hotel in the mediaeval village of Azzate. With a fascinating story to tell and an amazing atmosphere throughout – elevated by extraordinary frescoes, flickering firesides and character-packed bedrooms – our Italian hideaway is in a class of its own.

Building: XV century

‘Unique’ is definitely one of the words we’d use to describe Locanda dei Mai Intees. You’ve never stayed anywhere like this before – a property that consists of a central building around which a tower, courtyard and beautiful veranda congregate. These elements whisper of our hotel’s bygone years as a small, 15th-century mediaeval village, partly made up of a square, post office, pharmacy and grain store. The village pharmacist – our ancestor – transformed these spaces into a single country residence, which centuries later, were transformed again into our charming historic hotel.

Beautifully renovated in recent years, our spectacular spot includes both contemporary quirks and classic features, highlights of which include our carefully-restored 15th-century frescoes and 16th-century fireplace, both found in the dining room. We’ve preserved this property’s original architecture wherever possible, and added traditional flourishes throughout – each of our 12 rooms and suites are furnished individually with antique furniture and modern technologies. Come and enjoy a hotel stay like no other.

Occasions to Remember

Some of the highlights of staying at our historic hotel


Period furniture and warm colours make up our rooms at Locanda dei Mai Intees. Pick one of our Junior Suites for a spot of luxury when you visit, which include a living room and the option of a whirlpool tub or terrace overlooking the garden… or, for the ultimate experience, our main Suite offers a fireplace, balcony and jacuzzi. You’ll never want to leave.


Locanda dei Mai Intees’ restaurant was founded in 1989, and quickly became a meeting point for elite and international clientele. Relish regional dishes put together by chefs who are experts of their craft – accompanied by an important selection of wines – during magical meals here. We also offer a small but intimate bar, completely furnished in wood.


Put together memorable receptions and meetings in our ‘Sala degli Affreschi’, which was originally a mediaeval village pharmacy! With a large classical frieze and 16th-century fireplace in the background, this room can’t help but draw the eye – creating an awe-inspiring ambience for your next special event. In our ‘Sala delle Armi’, host business and private dinners in an equally ancient and elegant setting. Enquire for details.
