This is how holiday rental owners described Verbania
On July the official beginning of a new Lake Maggiore Tourist Season took place together with the opening of its world wide known main attraction, the Borromeo Islands.
On the islands the offer to the public is made of art and art again. ...
More than 2000 paintings and, first of all, the famous Picture Gallery („Galleria dei Quadri“ or General Berthier’s Gallery) in the Palace of the Isola Bella are waiting for you!
There you can find a real Lombard baroque museum rich in 130 important paintings collected by the Borromeo Family: from Leonardo’s Followers to the Baroque itself through wonderful copies of artists’ works of art such as Raffaello, Correggio, Tiziano and Guido Reni.
Among the others don’t fail to see Bergognone, Boltraffio, Giampietrino, Paris Bordon and Procaccini’s masterpieces too.
The Gallery was visited also from Princes Charles and Diana from Wales in the past.
Not only. On the Isola Bella the beautiful baroque Ss. Carlo and Vittore Church can’t be missed.
Otherwise come to the Isola Pescatori and discover its many hotels and restaurants in a nice fishers’ hamlet. They will be ready to offer to you their special menus based on lake fish dishes for a romantic stay or simply an amazing night.
Val Grande: the largest wilderness area in Italy, but also an outdoor museum of the ancient civilization of the Alps. The abandonment of the alpine summer pastures and of the deforestation practice led to the return to wilderness: nature becomes the master. The richness and variety of the vegetation represent one of the greatest attractions of the area, with impenetrable woods and a "very colored" flora. A Park with many secrets: timid animals, steep deep valleys, crystal-clear waters in gorges protected by overhanging walls, and charming views, from Mt. Rosa to Lago Maggiore. Enjoy this fantastic wild area!

Vacation in a holiday home at Lake Maggiore
Located to the south of the Alps between Switzerland and Italy, Lake Maggiore is a large, deep lake which exerts an influence on the climate in the surrounding area, allowing exotic plants to thrive. Holiday houses around Lake Maggiore are surrounded by carefully cultivated gardens and provide a peaceful retreat set amidst the majestic splendour of the Lombardy landscape.
Holiday apartments in the Swiss mountains and sunny Italy
Wherever you look for holiday houses, Lake Maggiore with its variegated scenery has much to offer. Holiday homes in the upper part are completely alpine in character, while holiday apartments in the middle region have a more Italian flavour. The lake maintains a higher temperature during winter, while in the summer its gentle breezes cool the surrounding area. During July and August, the water stays at the perfect temperature of 20 °C.
Activities and events in the vicinity of Lake Maggiore
If you stay in holiday homes near Locarno, you might like to visit its famous film festival which attracts cinephiles from around the world every August. A vacation in a holiday home is also the perfect choice for families with children who will have fun at Lake Maggiore Adventure Park, aside from which the lake is great for sailing, windsurfing, or simply swimming and sunbathing.
You can also book a lesson and try paragliding to see the incredible lake formations from above, or rent a mountain bike and try the picturesque alpine routes. If you are looking for winter holiday rentals you will love the skiing as well as the Nordic walking near Varese. The lake's unspoilt nature and the best climate in Switzerland are well worth getting to know as there many holiday rentals and holiday houses to choose from and major cultural events to enjoy all year round.
