One of Italy's largest and most popular lakes, Lake Maggiore was formed from a glacier and is surrounded by mountains and hills. The picture of all this already sounds perfect, so a holiday at Lake Maggiore would definitely be on the list of best destinations for the long awaited and well deserved break you're looking for. Ideally located on the border between Italy and Switzerland, with a mild climate in the summer and in winter that’s suitable for fun activities throughout the year, you will surely have a pleasurable time at the lake. On the water or at the shore, you will not be bored a single minute. Sailing, snorkeling, water biking or canoeing are just some of the activities that you can enjoy at the lake, so fun is pretty much guaranteed. Rent a holiday home at Lake Maggiore with fishing possibilities, and you can show off your fishing talent (or luck) by catching fish like trout, whitefish and perch.
Holiday homes at Lake Maggiore are also the perfect starting point to enjoy a cultural vacation in Italy. There are many places along the lakes that you can visit in which you can learn more about the history of the lake like how it came to exist, what it was used for in the past, how it has contributed to the economy of the region and many more. You can learn about this in a museum or on a guided tour during your family holiday at Lake Maggiore. Art and nature pretty much define the place so there is no wonder there's a Landscape Museum here, at Verbania Pallanza, that displays the scenic beuaty of the lake through art, meaning paintings, sculptures, archaeological objects. In Santa Maria Maggiore in the Vigezzo Valley, also known as the “Painters’ Valley”, there is the Rossetti Valentini Museum with works by excellent artists who have worked in the valley. If you want to go off the beaten path when it comes to culture, there's also the Hat Museum in Ghiffa and the Umbrella Museum in Gignese. Art exhibitions are also held in the museums.
Around Lake Maggiore there are many hills and mountain tops that you can climb, there's extreme sports that you can practice like hang gliding, rock climbing or canoeing. If you want to take it easier at some point, take a nice walk and enjoy the surroundings or rent a bike and go mountain biking on the winding paths while admiring the flora and fauna and enjoying the breathtaking views over the lake. Enjoy the nature here by walking in the forests, biking along rivers or go hiking in the mountains, breathing in the fresh air and taking some lovely pictures as witnesses of your great time here. Then there's also natural parks like the Val Grande National Park, Italy’s largest wilderness area, the Wildlife Oasis of Macugnaga, as well as nature reserves like the Fondotoce Nature Reserve, the Dormelletto Nature Reserve. In the Pian dei Sali protected area in the Vigezzo Valley, and in the Bosco Tenso protected area in Premosello Chiovenda, you can take a guided tour to discover the flora and fauna of the area. A holiday at Lake Maggiore is the definition of a relaxing time.
