Overview

About the property

Mansion, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 4)

This striking holiday home is mere 10 metres from the shores of Lake Maggiore, on Isola Superiore Pescatori (fishermen island). It is an alluring property containing 3 delightful apartments with lovely panoramic views over the lake. Furnished with attention to detail, they include several examples period furniture.

Isola Superiore Pescatori is one of the Borromee islands on lake Maggiore and is the only permanently inhabited island in the archipelago. 350 metres long and 100 metres wide, it features a small residential area with distinctive style properties comprising several floors (with long balconies designed for drying fish). There is a small piazza, picturesque narrow streets, a lakeside promenade and main street. 150 permanent residents make a living from the fishing and tourist industries. Inhabited for at least 700 years, it has a tree-lined vantage point, and local handicrafts can be purchased at the small market. Several traditional restaurants serve up delicious dishes, based almost entirely on fish. There are small beach areas on both sides of the Island.

The perfect choice for a relaxing, action-packed or culture-orientated holiday. For further information about local activities and monuments, please visit: www.borromeoturismo.it.

Driving is not permitted on the island and cars must be parked in one of the private or free parking areas in Stresa or Baveno. From here there are excellent connections by ferry shuttle or water-taxi. Upon prior request, the kind owner will also organise transfers to and from the island by motor boat, (prices start from 10 Euros).

The house, simple but comfortable, is not only pleasant, but also a good starting point for discovery of the area(through public transport or by renting a boat): the different islands of the lake and its attractions (palace, beautiful gardens) the villas, the riviera, the small villages, the nature, the mountainous regions etc.

Although on a small island in the middle of the lake, guests always have free WiFi connection.

This holiday house is a good starting point to visit the international event EXPO 2015 in Milan, from May 1, to October 31, 2015.

Beautiful island with fantastic views from the apartment. It was buzzing during the day peaceful in the evenings. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly there was a book providing suggested days out. It was easy getting about, but slightly restricting as the last boat back was at 7pm. However this didn't curtail our enthusiasm. W would definitely love to return and highly recommend to others.

Wat hebben wij genoten. Overdag met de boot weg naar allerlei bezienswaardigheden en savonds heerlijk rustig op ons balkon met een lekker glas wijn.

Mooie uitstapjes naar de berg Motarone, lago majore expres.

Wel een heel erg toeristisch gebied. Heel vriendelijk welkom door de gastvrouw.

Heerlijke douche. En neem de holidaykaart voor de overtocht met de boot, want losse kaartjes zijn duur. En nu kun je de gehele week naar elk eiland en dorpje heen en weer varen. Kost 83 euro per persoon. Auto kun je gratis parkeren bij station in Baveno, of langs de boulevard van Baveno.

In dit kleine (maar voor twee personen ruim genoeg) appartement kun je de hele dag genieten van de in grote getalen aangevoerde toeristen. In de avond zijn ze vertrokken en is het eiland bijna voor jou alleen.

Vanaf het eiland kun je met de boot naar alle bestemmingen. Het ernaast gelegen Isola Bella is een must. Parkeren gaat het best in Baveno.

Dit appartementje ligt op een fantastische plek aan het water. Zo leuk om al die bootjes af en aan te zien varen. Het balkon is een heerlijke plek. Alles is lekker kneuterig met gehaakte kleedjes e.d. Als de laatste veerboot geweest is kan je voor je deur vanaf de stenen pier zo het water inspringen!

We komen hier zeker terug.

tip parkeren bij halte CARCIANO is gratis.

Vanaf de parkeerplaats doorrijden naar achteren. Dan hoef je geen rekening te houden hoe laat je de volgende dag weer bij je auto moet zijn.
