We believe in enjoying and exploring the area that you have holidayed to. So many excursions these days take you away from where you are staying meaning that you miss out on the history, culture and nature which can be found right on your holiday doorstep. Having fallen in love with the lake many summers ago we realised the wealth of exciting places, of beautiful sites and of fascinating history that are only a boat ride away. All you need to do is sit back relax.

As planned, we undertook a trip covering several villages along the Lago Maggiore shoreline ending up in Pallanza, a beautiful town, just across Stresa, Italy (cost Euro: 16 for two seniors). It was just beautiful.
