The Lombardy region
Lake Maggiore is 54 km long, with a coastline of over 150km and at its widest is 12 km. Like all the other Northern Italian lakes it is a deep glacial basin fed by rivers; Verzasca, Giona, and Cannobino flow into the lake. Its major outlet is the Ticino which, in turn, joins the river Po just south-east of Pavia.
Piedmont and Lombardy are two major regions surrounding the Lake but the most northerly section of Lake Maggiore extends a dozen kilometres into Switzerland, the lowest point above sea-level in Switzerland.
The climate as with all these protected lakes is mild in both summer and winter, producing lush vegetation, with beautifully planted gardens in wonderful villas growing rare and exotic plants. Well-known gardens include those of the Isola Madre, Isola Bella and the Isole di Brissago, that of the Villa Taranto in Verbania, and the Alpinia botanical garden above Stresa. These lakes are almost like a lost world. They also have their monsters apparently!
The picturesque Maccagno lakefront leads to a fabulous park and beach perfect for picnics and water sport enthusiasts can enjoy sailing, wind surfing and kite surfing at the La Darsena water club which provides lessons and equipment hire. Hikers and cyclists can also enjoy this naturally beautiful area with its idyllic wooded mountains and incredible vistas.
Maccagno also provides guests with modern day amenities including a supermarket, cafes and shops. The nearby resort town of Luino also boasts a wide choice of cafes, bars, restaurants and a fabulous harbour with ferry service to the other popular resort towns of Lake Maggiore.
Lake Maggiore attractions include the Isola Bella gardens, Villa Taranto’s botanical gardens, the Borromeo Islands, the museums and markets of beautiful Stresa, the Fortress of Angrea and the other resort towns of Cannobio, Intra and the nearby cosmopolitan city of Lugano.
Ski lovers can enjoy the close proximity from Maccagno to the Swiss ski resort of San Bernardino, which is just 1 hour’s drive away by car. Other activities in the surrounding Lake District include tennis, golf, paragliding, kayaking, sailing, horse riding, quad biking, adventure parks, water parks, paragliding and sea plane adventures.
