Villas in Lake Maggiore

Villas on or near Lake Maggiore

Shared also with neighbouring Switzerland, Lake Maggiore is Italy’s second largest lake; over 64 kilometres long and up to 5 kilometres wide. To catch the best sunsets, head to Stresa’s Hotel La Palma Rooftop Bar where you can relax with a Prosecco and enjoy a panoramic view. The Borromean Islands are a must visit.

Check out our selection of villas on or near Lake Maggiore.

Getting to Lake Maggiore

Often considered the quietest of the big lakes, Maggiore’s Italian shores are shared by Piedmont and Lombardy. The nearest city is Milan and all major routes to Maggiore generally run through Milan. Milan is serviced by regular UK flights. From there, the quickest and easiest way to get to Maggiore is by car or train, without doubt.

Getting around Lake Maggiore

The towns of Arona, Stresa and Verbania, on Maggiore’s western shore, are generally more developed and suitable for tourists. Steamers connect the various lakeshore towns and villages and a local bus service also connects the towns.

A stunning roman catholic monastery perched on a rocky ridge on Maggiore’s eastern shore.

Villa Taranto Botanical Gardens were created by a Scottish army officer after WWII and are home to more than 20,000 plant varieties, natural to the area.
