Lake Maggiore holidays

Lake Maggiore sits up in Italy’s mountainous north, its northern reaches stretching across the border into Switzerland. Peaceful villages and colourfully painted towns hug its shores, looking over the waters towards jagged hills silhouetted by the sun. 

It’s a place that exudes old-fashioned elegance, from the belle-époque hotels lining the waterfront in Stresa to the opulent Palazzo Borromeo out on the little island of Isola Bella. Although neighbouring Lake Como is known for attracting the A-list, Lake Maggiore has also welcomed its fair share of famous faces over the years – think Queen Victoria, Winston Churchill and Ernest Hemingway.

The lake’s main town is Stresa, a delightful jumble of gift shops, enotecas (wine bars), trattorias and café-edged piazzas. But its smaller resorts are worth exploring too, such as Verbania (home to the lovely botanical gardens at Villa Taranto) and Baveno.
