Cast an Eye on the Borromean Islands from Villa Camilla

One of the pleasures of staying on Lake Maggiore is a leisurely trip to the Borromean Islands that sit peacefully off the coast of Stresa.  Boats leave throughout the day from Stresa’s docks and travel frequently between the three islands.  You can make a day of it, enjoying a meal on one island and strolling through castles and gardens on another.

Each island has its own personality and character.  Isola Bella has an elegant 17th century castle, beautiful gardens and numerous terraces overlooking the water.  Isola Pescatore in the only inhabited island, with a quaint village featuring charming shops, cafes and restaurants.  Isola Madre offers 19th century English style gardens and a palace filled with Italian masterpieces and paintings.

Villa Camilla, perched above Stresa, is a perfect villa for enjoying a lake holiday.  It enjoys a splendid panorama in a peaceful position on the first slopes above the town.  The villa has been recently renovated in an elegant modern style that features a beautiful infinity pool and a comfortable interior with every modern convenience.
