By boat
Lake Maggiore

ln a short space of time you can experience the thrill of a short cruise just like in the olden days. As soon as the boat sets off from its mooring, the landscape changes: as you pull away from the shore, the picture expands with picturesque villages reflecting in the lake and a crown of mountains all around.
It's a great way to enjoy the landscape's diversity: a haven for plants and places with historical links and little villages frozen in time.

From ltaly to Switzerland

You can reach Switzerland by boat and return by train on a panoramic trip through the mountains.

Amongst the most enchanting sights:

  • the Borromeo lslands
  • the Santa Caterina monastery
  • Villa Taranto

The Stresa apartment is my country home, a place I love returning to and never tire of.

It is around 200 m from the lakeside and offers marvellous 180° views over the lake and the surrounding mountains.

From the terrace you can enjoy the colours of dawn and dusk and a delightful landscape which is ever-changing.

The centre of the town is arou nd 2 km away: there is a wonderful walk through the woods along ancient pathways.

You can relax in the swimming pool or enjoy the sun on the terrace, as soon as it gets warm enough, we usually have lunch and dinner, watching the boats go by or gazing at the seagulls.

Stresa will be just you and me: the environment is therefore more tranquil and discreet.
