Description of Area:
Lake Maggiore is the second largest lake in Northern Italy. The exceptionally mild climate is a major contributing factor to the abundant subtropical vegetation found all around the Lake. The great Renaissance cities of Cremona and Mantua are within easy reach - as are Milan and Turin. The area has an enviable climate of warm summers and crisp winters and has been a popular retreat since Roman Times. The wooded hillsides are perfect for walking/mountain biking and the lakes are a watersports haven. The property is located in Fondotoce, a little hamlet of Verbania. Fondotoce is a little village on the shore of Lake Maggiore. It is well known for its sandy beaches and the natural park, situated on the mouth of the river Toce and from there several cycling paths start.

Milan is a 1 hour drive away for visits to La Scala and the Il Duomo. Nearby areas of Baveno, Pallanza, Suna, Intra, and Mergozzo are all easily accessible (all approx 4 Kilometres). Most have ferry terminal and boats call at half-hourly intervals during summer months, and they all have several excellent restaurants. It also has relatively easy access to the beautiful areas of cannobio and cannero (approx 45 min drive) and Locarno in Switzerland where they have music festivals arranged throughout the summer months (1 hr).
Stesa is approx 15 minutes by car where you can take the lift to ski-slopes. Local skiing is available within 45mins. It is also an ideal base when ski-ing in the local areas of Montaronne (approx 45 mins by car). There are two local ski resorts, Domobianca and Mottarone:
