In the province of Piedmont in northern Italy, this hotel is great for exploring the surrounds of Lake Maggiore.
CANNOBIOA charming port town on the banks of Lake Maggiore, Cannobio is a lovely place to explore. With its sloping lanes lined with old homes and a minuscule port on the lake, this town has a very Italian feel. And yet the village is just a few kilometres from the Swiss border. Don't miss the Renaissance sanctuary of Madonna della Pietà in the lower part or the Palazzo della Ragione, the 18th-century former town hall, in the upper part.
Facing the Borromean Islands with beautiful Liberty villas, this resort is one of the lakefront's most popular locations. With its little store-lined streets, the historic centre is somewhat narrow while the town extends north along the lakeside lined with elegant 1900 palaces.
THE BORROMEAN ISLANDSThe Borromean Islands are three pretty little islands off the coast of Stressa. They took their name from the Borromeo family which acquired Lake Maggiore as a fief in the 15th century. In the 17th century, Charles III occupied Isola Bella and built a palace in the Lombard baroque style comprising a host of ceremonial rooms, and surrounded by impressive gardens. Isola dei Pescatori has retained its original cachet while the whole of Isola Madre is covered with a fantastic exotic garden.
MONTE MOTTARONEWant to admire Lake Maggiore, the region's seven lakes, the Alps and the Monte Rosa massif in one go? Then climb to the peak of Monte Mottarone. Overlooking Stressa from an altitude of 1,491 m, it can be reached by a panoramic toll road, the 'strada del Mottarone', or the cable car which departs from Stresa, Piazza Lido and reaches the summit in 20 minutes. In summer, visitors can roam the site on mountain bike and enjoy beautiful hikes. In winter, they can ski.
