5 reasons why you should visit Lago Maggiore in winter

Lago Maggiore keeps its charm also during the winter months. Here are some tips for your unforgettable stay

Lago Maggiore magical atmosphere is an evergreen. The mild summer weather gives way first to the autumn foliage, offering marvellous colours and sights, and then to the winter quiet mood.  But even if it seems that everything is sleeping and the famous gardens in the area are waiting for spring to come, you have all the reasons to choose an enchanting stay on the Lake, even during winter. 

Whether you have already purchased a Villa Lago Maggiore or are still searching among Villas and Lago Maggiore apartments for sale, here are 5 good reasons to visit Italy’s most famous stretch of water. 


STRESA AND THE BORROMEAN ISLANDS

Taking a walk along the lake promenade or on the streets in Stresa, among elegant buildings and fabulous liberty style Villas is a perfect experience even during winter. Isola Madre with its english gardens is closed at this period of the year, but during weekends and festivities you can still visit the smallest of the three and the only inhabited one, Isola Pescatori, as well as Isola Bella


And if you are already thinking about those cool afternoon aperitifs or pic-nics during spring, then you should know that there are still many Lago Maggiore apartments and houses for sale in Stresa.


All dreamlike properties!

THE ROCCA DI ANGERA AND THE MUSEUM OF DOLLS AND TOYS

In a prime location and with a stunning view of Lago Maggiore the Borromean Rocca d’Angera stands out. Here, in the historic building of a rare beauty, you can visit a little pearl: the Museum of Dolls and Toys. It is the biggest in Europe and hosts 12 rooms, million of dolls in rich clothes, models and androids. 


BAVENO

Another place worth visiting is Baveno, a town with Roman origins, important tourist place and holiday resort. Here you can visit many houses for sale in Baveno and see the mineral called “bavenite”, which was discovered at the beginning of the 19th century and which name derives from the town itself. It is a rare mineral: in fact, you can find it only in the USA, Switzerland, Bavaria and the UK.

Baveno is the perfect place for those seeking relaxation and a life in touch with nature. 


SNOWSHOEING ON MOUNT MOTTARONE

The unique landscape of Lago Maggiore is not only about the lake. A cable railway in Stresa leads to Mount Mottarone at a height of 1,500 metres. An enchanted place, called “the mountain between the two lakes” due to its location in the middle of Lago Maggiore and Lake Orta, attracts tourists and nature lovers all the year round. In winter you can enjoy the ski slopes or the tracks for snowshoeing.


DINNER WITH A VIEW

When dining in your apartment has turned into a routine, then it could be time for a change and have dinner in one of the many restaurants in the area.
The prime dish is undoubtedly the lake fish, especially the lavarello, the trout, the tinca and the luccio. Typical in this area is also the arborella, which you can taste fried or “in carpione”.
