Castello dal Pozzo is located in the comune of Oleggio Castello, in the northern province of Novara. A few minutes away lies the
magnificent Lake Maggiore
, the second largest lake in Italy, which enjoys the picturesque backdrop of the south of the Alps
. Its sparkling waters have long served as inspiration for world-renowned writers such as Dickens and Hemingway, and today it still remains a popular tourist destination.
Around the lake there are a wealth of treasures to discover, such as palaces, botanical gardens and stately homes
, to name just a few. The local fare, taking advantage of its lake surroundings, consists of typical freshwater fish dishes served with cheeses
produced amongst the high mountain pastures, as well as salamis, in season game, mushrooms and honey from the hills and woodlands. Of course, being in Italy, you can savour all of this with the complementary flavours of delicious Italian wine.
Other comunes surrounding the lake include Arona (5 mins away) and Stresa (30 mins away), both of which boast ancient architecture and historical places of interest.
