The Lake Maggiore region

Lake Maggiore is the most westerly of the three large lakes of Italy and the second largest after Lake Garda.

It is 54 km in length, upto 12 km's wide and runs from Switzerland to Italy. This allows you the freedom of seeing two beautiful countries within easy reach of Appartamento San Carlo.

Lake Maggiore has lots of charm, is less glitzy than Como, less crowded than Garda, and is a refreshing natural experience. The capital of the area, Stresa, however, is where the fantastical and the grandiose rule.

Stresa's main sqaure is very elegant with numerous restaurants surrounding it, where you can people watch and enjoy some real home-made Italian food. The restaurants are of high standard and very competative in price.Leading off the main square are cute cobbled lanes lined with bars, restaurants, tourist shops, clothes shops, etc.

The promenade consists of wide avenues of trees and flowerbeds and gives you a panoramic view of the Borromeo islands and the surrounding mountains.

The Borromeo islands consist of three small islands called respectively: Isola Madre, Isola Bella and Isola dei Pescatori.

You can visit the islands by boats and water taxis. There are an abundance of restaurants on the islands, where you can dine on fresh fish caught from the lake and get a different perspective on the beautiful countryside.


Boat trips

Lake Maggiore has three small islands to visit and plenty of great little towns dotted around, such as Intra, which can be reached by boat. The nearest port is situated about five minutes walk down from Appartamento San Carlo at Carciano.

There are numerous others ports within close vicinity where you can embark and extend your choice of destination. The most popular trips are to the small islands of Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori and Isola Madre. All three islands are uniquely beautiful and though small have plenty to offer with numerous cafes, bars, restaurants, sights and beautiful gardens on.

You will eventually see brown signs for Domobianca ski resort, which lead you directly into the resort. Domobianca is for intermediates to advanced levels and is where the Italian Ski team train.

Mottarone ski resort can be reached by either the cable car, by the Lake, or by driving directly into the resort. Both take about 20 minutes. Once you reach Mottarone by cable car there is about a ten minute walk to the resort. Driving takes you through the National Park, which will cost around 5 euros.

"Excellant value for money couples hideaway close to the lakes and mountains."

This appartment is perfect for two abd such good value for money. We were so comfortable there we spent most evenings enjoying the tranquility of the sppartment, cooking in the well accesorised kitchen, watching DVDs, sleeping alot...just what we needed. Then we spent the days walking by the lake and in.the mountains beautiful. So with regards to stresa-there is plenty to do even at this time of year but although the lake buses and buses are running i would advise a car if you want to visit the mountains. cable car not running and some parts of the islands closed at this time of year. perhaps we just did not know where to go but it definately wasnt a good place to go if you want a new years eve party, very quiet although the fireworks over the lake were beautiful.

"A great apartment representing excellent value for money"

This apartment is a short distance from the main drag in Stresa but is still very close at only 15 minutes walk from the town centre. It has a Carrefour local shop and post office on the door step and the neighbourhood is very nice.
The apartment itself is clean and well presented with good decor throughout. There is also a useful back courtyard which is great for eating out in and sun bathing.
There is a Scottish lady who lives nearby who is able to offer assistance with any queries and she was very helpful to us.
All in all a very good apartment at a very reasonable price.
