Additional Location Information

The Neighborhood

Lake Maggiore or Lago Verbano is 66 km long, with a coastline of over 150km and at its widest is 10 km, creating a natural border between Italian regions of Piedmont (west shore) and Lombardy (east shore). Its northern part belongs to Ticino region, Switzerland. Like the other Northern Italian lakes it is a deep glacial basin (max. depth of 372 m).

The climate as with all these protected lakes is mild in both summer and winter, producing lush vegetation with beautifully planted gardens in wonderful villas growing rare and exotic plants. Well-known gardens include those of the Isola Madre, Isola Bella and the Isole di Brissago, that of the Villa Taranto in Verbania, and the Alpinia botanical garden above Stresa.

Ispra is a typical small Italian town with a church, bar, ice-cream parlor and a pastry shop (pasticceria) at its center.
The downtown and in it all the basic infrastructure are within 5 min walking distance from the apartment.
On its outskirts, Ispra also features more "advanced" facilities like a swimming centre, horse stables, golf course etc.

Getting around

Public parking is available in the Old Marina or on a hill above the condominium garden (paid on week-ends during daytime).

Public boat service stops some 100m from the garden entrance (April to October). It is a great way to see the many interesting places around the lake: the Borromean islands with their villas and beautiful botanical gardens, hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso, towns of Arona, Angera, Stresa, Laveno, even as far as Locarno (Switzerland).

It is also possible to rent a 40 ccm speedboat (~ €150 a day ex. gas, in a marina 5 min away by car) to explore the lake freely. Temporary mooring is available directly in front of the house.

Milan Malpensa international airport is a 40 min drive away.
