Tips van de eigenaar
The Isola Superiore also known as the Fishermen’s Island is certainly the most characteristic of the Borromeo islands on Lago Maggiore, owes its name to the activity of its inhabitants. Approximately 300 meters of land in the middle of the lake in a marvellous frame of the Alps, the fascination of this island lies in the archaic simplicity and the rustic candour of its houses. On the narrow alleys you will find restaurants, where to taste the local fish, bars, kiosks and the little shops. “It is a place that …enchants you with a thousand unknown fascinations and you feel in a state of rare sensuality and refinement” this is how Gustave Flaubert described this place that, throughout the centuries and in every season fascinated and still enchants tourists from all over the world.
The Island is connected to Stresa and Baveno by a regular public boat service and it is a good cross road for every kind of excursion: to reach the other islands (Bella and Madre), to visit the beautiful villas and gardens along the coast to get to the top of the mountain, also with a cableway to enjoy a marvellous view over the top of the Mottarone Mountain of 7 lakes (Maggiore, Orta, Mergozzo and 4 Lombard lakes) and the majestic Italian and Swiss Alps. Mottarone is equipped for winter sports. The villages surrounding offer traditional and cultural events as well as musical festival well advertised by the local tourist office.
