The best way to enjoy stunning Lake Maggiore? From your very own perfectly manicured lakeside garden of course. Whether it's sitting enjoying a refreshing drink sat at a shaded table, a picnic rug on the grass, relaxed on a deck chair, or strolling alongside the lake, looking out at incredible sweeping vistas - it's pretty idyllic.

At Casa Borroni - a pretty whitewashed villa with the terracotta-tiled roof in a secluded residential area, you can do all of this and more. From your gardens, step straight down into the fresh, fresh waters of the lake. If you're feeling adventurous, take out a boat or kayak and appreciate the green surroundings from afar.

A bit peckish? Fire up the BBQ for an outside dining experience you'll never forget - especially as the sun sets and the coastline comes to life with twinkling lights...

This two bedroom holiday home with arched windows and delightful plants dotted around outside can sleep up to five in its cosy spaces. Traditionally styled - the living area, though snug and inviting, is stylish, boasting a characteristic fireplace, pretty rugs and seating. There's even a billiard table for all the family to enjoy. And a separate kitchen and dining area is perfect for those nights in - to maybe enjoy a succulent seafood supper?

With two welcoming bedrooms and bathrooms, it's perfect for family life. There's also an extra single bed in an open space if needed.

With all your 'home from home' needs taken care off, all that's left to do is venture outside and make the most of majestic Lake Maggiore. Just 7km from the charming village of Arona and 10km from Stresa with its lakeside promenade, cafes, restaurants and bars, it's one fantastic position.

There's something magical about the lakes of northern Italy bordering Switzerland - the snow-capped mountains, elegant villas, charming villages and narrow glacial lakes, all of which make for a camera-ready scene of eye-popping beauty.

And Lake Maggiore, Italy's second largest lake, is no exception. Sleepy cobblestone villages, exceptional flowers, views over glittering waters, ethereal islands and the odd castle - it's no wonder such illustrious visitors as Byron, Shelley and Hemingway graced its very shores.

When the Simplon Pass train from Switzerland, one of the Alp's most beautiful crossings, opened, it meant easier access to this beautiful lake. And many visited for all its beauty, including its little islands located on the western arm of this stunning stretch of water -  the tiny Isola Bella - a place of decadent parties for the nobility of Europe - Isola dei Pescatori with its population of just 50 people, and a number of fabulous fish restaurants, and Isola Madre featuring the most beautiful botanical flowers. The Borromean Islands are well worth a visit.

Inland, explore the pretty town of Stresa situated below the majestic peak of Mottarone, and enjoy its many cafes, restaurants and bars - especially the ones with views out to the Borromean islands. Why not take a cable car up Mottarone for a truly spectacular view across the Alps? Amble around the town of Verbania or Cannobio's lakefront piazza with its ancient buildings. Then there's picturesque Maccagno and Luino with its famous market - amongst many more on this enchanting lake that will quite literally take your breath away.
