Lake Maggiore rentals - relax in a peaceful lakeside destination
Lake Maggiore is Italy's second largest lake, and its unpretentious and
humble presence will make you feel right at home.
A Lake Maggiore rental
is a place for peace, rejuvenation, and
enjoyment of the local culture. The lake has a climate that is pleasant almost
every month of the year and with tropical palm trees decorating its islands,
this is definitely a picturesque getaway. The charm of Lake Maggiore pulses from
the spirits of the local people, and since its tip reaches into Switzerland, it
is the only lake in all of Italy that has waters in two different countries.
Taking a ferry between the islands in the lake is a fun day trip excursion from
your Lake Maggiore rental. Isola Bella earns its name with its beautiful gardens
and stunning Baroque palace. Isola Pescatori also speaks to its name with a
hearty trade of fishing that supports the local trade economy while filling our
plates and delighting our palates with exquisite meals of fresh fish. The noble Borromeo
family owns a prominent villa on this island, and you may see their family crest
rise on a flag when they are in residence.
The most interesting attraction in Lake Maggiore is Santa Caterina del Sasso
which is a hermitage that dates back to the 12th century. The story goes that a
wealthy merchant's boat capsized on the lake during a violent storm, and his
prayers were answered when he was safely swept up on the ledge of the closest
cliff. He spent the next forty years in the cave as a hermit, dedicating his life
to Saint Catherine and garnering a reputation for his deep piety. Today, the
location is used as a concert hall and still draws followers from across the
These are only samples of the numerous fascinating aspects of Lake Maggiore.
