Lake Maggiore villas - quality rental homes in the Italian lake district

lake maggiore villa rentalLake Maggiore is the second largest lake in Italy, and its year-round mild climate makes a Lake Maggiore villa an ideal vacation destination. It seems like there are always flowers blooming and seasonal vegetables ripening in this lush area, offering you endless possibilities for a handcrafted Italian meal. Lake Maggiore acts as a watery boundary between two provinces, Lombardy and Piedmont, and its northernmost tip actually stretches into Switzerland.

Do you want to get away from the crowds that often form at Lake Garda and Lake Como? A Lake Maggiore villa is a perfect choice for a peaceful, uncluttered and natural vacation experience. There are several islands that grace the waters of Lake Maggiore, and be sure to take your camera as you take a ferry ride across the lake. You may spy Monte Rosa, which at 15,200 feet high is not merely a mountain, but a glacier-filled natural wonder.

Speaking of the islands, a day trip from your Lake Maggiore villa to Isola Bella will convince you why it got its name. This beautiful island holds an Italian Baroque palace with terraced gardens, and you can just imagine the nobility that once resided there. Isola Madre is the largest of the islands and echoes its own version of daily Italian life with its quaint restaurants, eclectic shops, and friendly local people. Finally, stop by the nearby town of Stresa and the prominent "Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees", a famous historical hotel that during World War One was transformed into a hospital. Here, a wounded Ernest Hemingway was nurtured in 1918, and he returned in 1948 to gather material for A Farewell to Arms, in which the hotel serves as a setting.
