Lake Maggiore is one of the most famous touristy destination in Northern Italy. It hosts rich and scenographic villas. On Piemonte’s side of the Lake, starting from lake shore up to the hills before Mt Mottarone you will have the occasion to admire wonderful parks and amazing villas with their porches, balconies, terraces, galleries, staircases, towers and belvederes. Some of those are now open and transformed in luxury venues for weddings, meetings, congresses, fashion and company events… It is not by chance!
After Lake Como, where George Clooney and Michael Schumacher bought their homes, and Lake Orta which is nowadays one of the main Italian destinations for weddings, now Lake Maggiore is taking for itself all medias interest.
Womens’s Wear Daily, one of the most important US fashion magazine, mention Lake Maggiore among one of the most sophisticated travel destinations, while Los Angeles Times considers it as one of the most scenographic Italian Lakes. Maybe because of its mountains reflecting on the waters and its villas surrounded by wonderful gardens.
New Motorway of Trafori allows to reach from Turin or Milan, the best locations on the lake and Lake’s micro-climate maybe can explain better this new choice for tourism. This is the reason because Lake Maggiore become also one of the favorite destinations of many Italians for their weekends.
From Claudio Abbato to Iannis Kounellis, from Alessandro Benetton and Deborah Compagnoni to Magan Gale, Valeria Mazza, Borromeo Family and Curiel… many people of international show business are now on the Lake!
We are facing a kind of renaissance of Lake Maggiore with its restored private residences now transformed in guest houses, villas that become art centers or galleries or ancient palaces now converted in luxury residences with fairy tale gardens.
