Villas in Lake Maggiore
Why not holiday in Lake Maggiore…a truly breath-taking lakeside destination in Italy.Read more
The second largest of Italy's lakes, Lake Maggiore is steeped in subtropical fig and olive trees, flourishing botanical gardens and a cluster of pastel-coloured houses that line the waters - and since they stretch across the border into Switzerland, you'll have plenty to explore. North of Milan, Lake Maggiore holidays can be as laid-back or lively as you wish, so you can lap up the peace and quiet in the smaller resorts or be in the heart of the action in the more touristy areas.
We're proud to offer a unique collection of Lake Maggiore villas, from large and luxurious properties with private pools to stunning apartments to rent across the beautiful towns of Stresa, Baveno and Verbania. Wherever you decide to stay, regular boat services connect to the lakeside towns, making this destination a popular choice if you like to explore.
Speaking of which, there's an abundance of popular attractions to visit during your holidays to Lake Maggiore, many of which reside on the western shore, where you'll find the resort's major draw - the jaw-droppingly beautiful Borromean Islands. Loved by Ernest Hemingway, this group of three small islands and two islets are brimming with subtropical parks, artificial caves, centuries-old Palazzo's, cobbled streets and pretty architecture.
Overlooking the islands is the chic little town of Stresa, where you can browse sophisticated shops, restaurants and bars along the promenade; or if you want to explore a little further, hop on a boat and take a day trip from Lake Maggiore to Switzerland where you can explore the beautiful town of Zermatt, backed by the Matterhorn mountain - less than a three-hour journey away!
