The Lombardy region
The apartment 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 & back by boat to Luino.
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 min drive. 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.
Val Veddasca, which is up the hillside from the apartment, 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 about what to see and do.
The apartment is located in a traditional hillside village called Campagnano which overlooks Lake Maggiore. There is a restaurant within walking distance of the apartment as well as a small village store. It is about a 12 minute drive to the lakeside and the nearest beaches. The nearest town is the same distance away and has a selection of restaurants, bars and cafes as well as a pharmacy, supermarket and gelataria. Luino is about a 20 minute drive away. This is a larger town and has a wider selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
