About the property

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

This striking holiday home is only 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. 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.
