Lago Maggiore Smooth Jazz Festival
Gran Hotel Dino
August 20-23, 2015
The 13th edition of Smooth Entertainment's SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL series takes us to a new place in a new country - a country known for good food, good wine, fashion, summer, sun, sunshine - a country known for LA DOLCE VITA: Italy.
The 3rd in the series of Europe's only annual Smooth Jazz festivals holds court at the picturesque Lake Maggiore. The second largest lake in Italy, located in the wine region of Piemonte and just within a stone's throw of Lake Como, where amongst others George Clooney owns a house.
The Grand Hotel Dino in Baveno is the venue, an exclusive bathing and holiday resort situated about 45 minutes north of the fashion metropolis Milan, is surrounded by picturesque mountains. It has retained the glamour of the 60s and the charm of Art Nouveau. The hotel itself is nestled in a beautiful natural setting with century-old trees in the parks, pools, and the breathtaking panorama of the Borromean Islands. The spacious complex extends directly to the lake shore and has a private boat jetty.
