Holiday on Lake Maggiore

Crystal clear water and lots of green areas...

High peaks, green valleys and flowers of all colours. On Lake Maggiore you can have fun in nature, but you can also relax.

Plenty to do

Lake Maggiore is a charming lake, dotted with many national parks and reserves, the ideal destination for those who love outdoor sports. 
This area is full of beautiful villas; luxury buildings with gardens that surround them, such as the Botanical Gardens of Villa Taranto, and the beautiful gardens of Isola Bella and Isola Madre.

The water and the beach

Thanks to the beautiful clear water of Lake Maggiore on the Piedmont side and Lombard it is really popular for water sports; canoeing, yachting, sailing, water skiing and scuba diving. Also around the lake and in the surrounding valleys you can take excursions on foot or by mountain bike, or try some climbing and golf. 
For lovers of relaxation we recommend the beaches of Brissago, Verbania and Cannero.
