Your Destination —
With sweeping vistas of crystal blue waters, set against soaring alpine mountains and dotted with sleepy cobblestone villages - this spectacular destination is one of Italy’s jewels and its abundant natural beauty has drawn visitors to its shores for centuries.
Borromean islands - 10 minutes by boat
Home to the Borromean Palace and fisherman's houses alike, the three Borromean islands and their lavish gardens are a 'must see' when visiting Stresa. On the islands of Bella and Madre, there are sumptuous palaces and rare plant gardens where peacocks, parrots and pheasants roam wild against an exotic backdrop reminiscent of faraway lands.
In contrast, the Isola dei Pescatori is famous for the charming simplicity of its old fishing village, which is considered one of the most picturesque spots on Lake Maggiore
Please note: Parks on the Borromean islands and the palaces close on October 23rd.
Villa Taranto Botanic Gardens (15km)
A spectacular example of a labour of love, undertaken by Scottish office Captain McEacharn in 1931. He created an exemplary English garden to remind him of home, which has today flourished to include a vast array of rare tropical foliage. A must for keen gardeners!
Mottarone is known as the 'Mountain of the Two Lakes' thanks to its strategic position between Lake Maggiore and the equally beautiful Lake Orta. Take an exhilarating cableway trip to the summit to enjoy a superlative view of the Lake and the majestic Alpine chain.
