Lake Maggiore: beautiful cities and beautiful nature on the water.

Lake Maggiore, with an area of more than 200 km2, is one of the larger lakes in the European Alps. The elongated Lake Maggiore lies on the border between Switzerland and Italy and forms a transitional area from the Alps to the Po Valley. The northern part of the 60 km long lake is Swiss and is located in the Alps. The larger southern part is Italian and is situated in a hilly area. The Ticino River flows from north to south through the lake and several other rivers from Alpine valleys feed Lake Maggiore with water from the mountains. The water quality of the lake is therefore particularly good.

Holiday homes on Lake Maggiore are easy to reach by car. From Utrecht, depending on the exact location of your holiday home, the distance is about 950 kilometres. The quickest route takes you through Germany to Basel and then to your holiday home or flat on Lake Maggiore via the Gotthard Tunnel or via the San Bernardino Tunnel.

Holidays on Lake Maggiore

Lake Maggiore has been an attractive holiday destination since the 19th century. The rich nobility then settled along the shores of the lake and built large country houses and holiday homes with exotic gardens. The beautiful villas and botanical gardens full of Mediterranean and Asian palms still determine the image and atmosphere. The rolling banks, high peaks and green valleys that surround the lake offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature. You can enjoy endless hiking, mountain biking and of course just do nothing. The lake itself offers many opportunities for swimming and water sports.

There are several islands in the lake. The most famous islands are the Borromean Islands in the southwestern part of the lake. On Isola Bella is Villa Borromée with impressive terraced gardens, a beautiful 17th-century palace in Baroque style. The Borromean Islands can be reached by boat from Stresa, Italy. In both the Swiss and the Italian part, there are also nice cities, many of them directly on the shores of the lake. There are also interesting cities in the area that you can visit during a holiday on Lake Maggiore.

The southern part of Lake Maggiore is surrounded by hilly terrain. The western banks are in the relatively rich Piedmont region, Italian for 'at the foot of the mountains'. The first town after the Swiss border is the lively medieval town of Cannobio. In addition to several nice beaches, the picturesque narrow alleys and the beautiful promenade along the water make Cannabio an attractive and romantic destination for a holiday on Lake Maggiore. Nearby, there is also the spectacular gorge Oridor di Santa Anna in the beautiful nature of Val Cannobio. More to the south lies the luxury Stresa, known for its beautiful architecture, especially Art Nouveau. The city has many squares and culture and music lovers will have a great time here.

The eastern shores of Lake Maggiore are located in the Lombardy region. The largest city on the eastern side of the lake is Luino, at the mouth of the Tresa River. The historic centre of the city is located directly on the water and there you will find numerous restaurants, cafes and shops. The Val Veddasca is close to the city. This beautiful nature reserve with old villages is ideal for walking.

Locarno is the largest city on the lake and has a sunny Mediterranean climate with beautiful vegetation. The lively Piazza Grande is located in the pedestrian centre of Locarno. Restaurants, cafes and shops abound here and in the surrounding streets and alleys. The ochre-coloured houses are characteristic of the city. The most famous sight is probably the 12th century Castello Visconteo, which also houses a museum. Ascona also has a special vegetation thanks to its pleasant climate.
