Lake Maggiore is very close to Italy and Switzerland and this is especially noticeable; the view of the peaks of the Alps is breathtaking. From the campsite you can see this fantastic view and enjoy the beautiful lake.
From the boat you can admire the most spectacular shores of Lake Maggiore and wonderful views of the mountain peaks. The pride of Lake Maggiore is the ‘Borromean Islands’ and from the island of ‘Stresa’ you can see the romantic ‘Isola Bella’ in the distance. Around the lake there are several points of interest, such as the botanical gardens of Verbania. Buy the typical products in the lively local markets and if you love shopping go to the very cosmopolitan Milan.
The lakefront offers numerous shops, bars and ‘ristornati’. From the campsites you can walk to the beach and when you get tired of sunbathing and reading books why not try canoeing, fishing, windsurfing, kite surfing or swimming? The lake water is very clean and the beaches are child proof! You'll be surprised by the hospitality of the locals and, especially in the summer, you should definitely attend a village festival.
