Baveno

Summer holidays in Baveno take you to a place with wonderful views of the Borromean Islands. Lovely Baveno has been a well known tourist resort since the early 19th century. This elegant past is reflected by the beautiful villas that dot the surrounding landscape.

Baveno has a small harbour, an attractive promenade with lakeside cafés and a profusion of flowers and oleander trees. Take summer holidays to Baveno and explore the splendour of Lake Maggiore in the glorious Piedmont. There are regular ferry connections to Pallanza, Stresa and the Borromean Islands. Enjoy perfect, long, lazy lakeland days in the hot Italian sun!

Isola Pescatori is an old fishing village with good restaurants, famous for the white peacocks that strut in the botanical gardens. Isola Bella, perhaps the best known of the islands, features the magnificent Borromean Palace and beautiful landscaped gardens. Take a summer holiday to Baveno for all this and much more, set in a gorgeous cosmopolitan paradise.
