The Lombardy region
Lake Maggiore offers visitors a wealth of activities and sights to enjoy whatever your age. With plenty to do during your Lake Maggiore holiday, whether you're six or sixty six, it's a great all year round holiday destination in a stunning part of Italy. With great beaches to relax on in the Summer, wonderful villages to visit in the Spring, skiing to enjoy in the Winter and some stunning walks in the Autumn, Lago Maggiore really does cater for all tastes! The property is perfectly placed for visiting Luino, Cannobio, Cannero, Stresa, Ascona & the Borromean Islands. A great day out is the Lago Maggiore Express by boat up to Ascona & Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps then connect to Stresa. Also in Switzerland, Valle Verzasca & Valle Maggia are worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in Goldeneye. The river is fantastic to swim in & the setting is idyllic. Como is just a 45 minute drive away. Lake Como enjoys its own ferry service and features Bellagio, Varenna & Villa Carlotta. In the other direction, Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes. It's a 45 min drive from Lugano & the Monte Salvatore funicular. There is a beautiful lido here too which I would recommend. The brand new lido in Locarno (opened Oct 2009) is also superb. Or you can catch a train into Milan city centre & go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie & Da Vinci's painting of 'The Last Supper.' Or if you're more of a sports fan, you can take a tour of San Siro stadium. For cheaper shopping, Luino boasts the biggest weekly market in Europe. Or you could have a look at Foxtown, an outlet centre where the most famous international brands offer their products at factory prices. The nearest beaches are no more than 5 mins away, whilst nearby Maccagno is one of the best spots on the lake to enjoy watersports. Val Veddasca is ideal for hiking. The scenery and nature is fabulous. Most of the nearby mountains also have tracks for mountain bikes. The area offers plenty to do for children - Swissminiatur, a Swiss chocolate factory and the European Museum of Transport. Monte Tamaro is a great place with an alpine bob sleigh and the longest flying fox in Switzerland! Or you could try your hand at falconry or visit a safari park! In the summer, there is a huge waterpark near Milan. Please ask for more details on what there is to see and do in the area.
The villa is in an ideal location, just a short walk from the lakeside. In theory, it is also possible to walk to the village of Germignaga from the villa where there are a selection of good restaurants and shops. However, there is not a pavement on certain parts of the road from the property to Germignaga. The nearest supermarket is just a 5 minute drive away, as are the nearest restaurants, laundrette, pharmacy and geletaria.
