The Territory of the Distretto Turistico dei Laghi Monti e Valli
The romantic atmosphere of the lakes, the grandeur of the surrounding alpine peaks, the ancient rural history and the excellence of top quality food and wine products typical of the regional cuisine contribute to make the “Distretto Turistico dei Laghi Monti e Valli“ in Northern Piedmont, an area directly bordering with Switzerland and located within a short distance from the two important metropolitan centers of Milan and Turin, a perfect destination for a top quality relaxing vacation.
A variety of landscapes, so different but so closely connected and easy to reach! From Lake Maggiore, with the fascinating Borromeo Islands, to the peaceful and charming Lake of Mergozzo, all the way up to the bewitching scenario of Lake of Orta with the suggestive Island of St. Jules: Nature, art and historical jewels contribute to make this one of the most beautiful tourist areas in the world. Here, surrounded by the seemingly never-ending Alpine range, mountain lovers can explore and enjoy the Ossola Valleys with their extensive forests, alpine lakes, imposing mountain tops and breathtaking parks.
Mount Rosa, the Val Grande National Park, the Nature Parks of Veglia-Devero Mountain Pastures and the Antrona Upper Valley represent ideal destinations for hikers looking for the most uncontaminated environments.
The succession of lakes and mountains offers endless opportunities to practice summer and winter sports, stop at typical restaurants to savor the traditional regional cuisine, and discover mouth watering menus inspired by both tradition and innovation, visit interesting museums and enjoy the comfort of thermal resorts and take part to international events without forgetting to stop at some of the many craftsmen shops to take a look at, and possibly take home as souvenirs, the many skillfully handcrafted items, houseware and clothing exposed in the windows. Senza dimenticare i nostri centri termali di Bognanco e Premia: divertimenti, relax e cure per tutte le età in un contesto architettonico rispettoso delle bellezze ambientali del territorio che li circonda! All of the above contributes to make this a territory to be enjoyed all year round.
