The lake and its shoreline are divided between the Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy and the Swiss canton of Ticino. Located halfway between Lake Orta and Lake Lugano, Lake Maggiore extends for about 65km between Locarno and Arona.The climate is mild in both summer and winter, producing Mediterranean vegetation, with many gardens growing rare and exotic plants.

  • ... The first to live near this Beautiful Lake. The second rider to have a husband who loves like me see and browse the many beauties around us! And there are many. First and foremost is Stresa. A small town garden with its luxurious hotels, streets and features a lakeside curate, point x the 3 Islands. But there are also Sixth, Arona, Verbania, Laveno, Leggiuno and many more. Below I attach the detailed plan and I like to think I accompany you to discover this magical and beautiful Lake Maggiore!

  • For years I go to Lake Maggiore, or my reference points, from Verbania in Arona passing x Stresa, food, culture, retro-style hotels, the Lake and its islands, all so beautiful, and then in the winter with its greyness its furrows on the Lake are x lovers a place x squeezing even more, and always nice to return to the Lake at any time of the year. I recommend it.
