Lago Maggiore is a magical glacial lake anchoring the mountains which lead up to the Italian Alps. This is the heart of the 'Lakes District' of Italy, an area with a noted northern influence blending beautifully with all things Italian. This is an area devoted to being outdoors on land or water, with plenty of small villages to explore. There is excellent hiking in the Valle Grande and elsewhere, and equally excellent golfing with two golf courses within 15 minutes by car.
