Not only Stendhal, Byron, Flaubert and Hesse – to name only a few – were captivated by the famous Lago Maggiore. This area, the lowest point in Switzerland (200 metres above sea-level), is famous for its mild Mediterranean climate. Palms, chestnut trees and bamboo bushes grow here in lush variety. A multitude of colourful flowers scent the air with their seducing fragrance. Hills and mountains rising from the Lago Maggiore carry you away for sensational walks and trips never experienced before.
