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!
Maccagno’s lakeside park provides an idyllic spot for walking and enjoying picnics with sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing possibilities at the local La Darsena Water sport Club.
Local amenities are situated in the nearby historical quarter of Maccagno and include a modern supermarket, cafes and bars. From the picturesque tranquil town guests can easily reach the main resort town of Luino which features a beautiful marine front with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. A train service runs from the town as well as a frequent car and passenger ferry service which takes visitors to the western shore where the picturesque resort towns such as Stresa can be explored.
Lake activities include swimming, water sports, tennis, golf, cycling and the nearby Swiss ski resort of San Bernardino.
This beautiful resort town 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.
A frequent ferry service also operates from the town taking visitors to the beautiful towns of Cannobio, Stresa and to the incredible and elegant gardens found on the Bromero Islands.
From the town and just 7 minutes drive away, visitors can also take the mainline train from Luino to explore the local area. The bustling town of Luino also offers a wide choice of supermarkets, shops and amenities as well as boasting the largest weekly market in Europe!
