The Lake Maggiore 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!
Maccagno also boasts a fantastic Sailing school with equipment hire and opportunities for windsurfing and kite surfing, making this holiday location truly versatile to your needs, be it relaxing or being active! Local amenities are provided in the historical centre with a supermarket, shops, cafes and bars. Luino is just a 3 minute's drive away and boasts a picturesque lakefront lined with a beautiful marina and shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.
Transport links are also very good from the resort town with a train, bus and car and passenger ferry service.
The famous Lake Maggiore attractions can also be easily accessed from the north eastern shore and other day excursions include Lugano, Milan and the Swiss Ski Resort of San Bernardino.
The beautiful resort town of Maccagno enjoys a lovely lakefront position along the northerly eastern shore of Lake Maggiore and retains an ancient and noble history, once being known as a skilled craft and fishing village under the Mandelli Counts, before being granted freedom to become a free miniature state with its own mint for several centuries before the powerful Borromeo family took control.
Today its colourful past can be seen with the lower part of Maccagno noticeably more ancient then the modern upper part of the town, with medieval passageways, noble townhouses, an imperial watch tower and the sanctuary of 'Madonna della Punta'.
Visitors can enjoy the many pizzerias and fine restaurants, its lakefront promenade which leads to a modern art museum, a forest, play area and beach. For swimmers the Lidos of nearby Locarno and Ascona are recommended. Carnival festivities also feature during the summer months and play up to the town's famous culinary expertise with the famous 'Rice and Sausage' festival.
Additional Activities and Attractions include:
Bicycling, Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Fishing, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Golf, Hiking/Trails, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens, Rowing Boats, Sailing, Skiing - Snow, Skiing - Water and Wind Surfing.
There are four championship Golf Course's in the Lake Maggorie area, all within a 25km radius of each other! They are:-
Bogogno Golf Club, Via Isidoro, 1 - 28010 Bogogno.
Golf Club Castelconturbia, Via Castelconturbia, 10-28010 Agrate Conturbia.
Golf Des Iles Borromées, Località Motta Rossa, 28833 Brovello Carpugnino
The Golf Des Iles Borromées has a path that takes place in a pristine natural environment at about 500 feet high; well exposed to the sun, it is cool in summer and sunny in winter. Set in a beautiful landscape, the field has a unique view, from the plain of the Ticino Alps Simplon and Switzerland and four pre-alpine lakes, the Maggiore, Varese, Monate and Comabbio. The GOLF DES ILES BORROMEES is open all year except January. Our day is closing on Mondays. From May to September included we are open daily.
This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.
There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.
There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.
The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 90K
