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 Alps 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; 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.

Reviews

  • Unbelievable

    Posted by Vincent on 22/07/2017

    We had a fantastic time at Villa San Giovanni. The house is great, garden and views are unbelievable. A unique place to spend quiet time with friends while enjoying Lago Maggiore. This is a great region, with amazing boat rides to Borromeo islands. Great food and views. Also, I wish to thank you warmly for having put us in touch with Maria (external cook) who has been an amazing cook for us for one week. She brought the experience to a wholly different level.

  • Beyond our Expectations

    Posted by Maureen on 24/06/2017

    The Villa San Giovanni was beyond our expectations. The view was magnificant and the accomodations were as promised. I would make sure for future bookings that you tell renters to rent a car. The housekeeper was on top of all of our requests. I would recommend this villa highly and rate it a 9-10. The town of Palanza was lovely too.
