It can accommodate up to 5 people. The spacious dining and living room is richly decorated with frescoes, paintings, and an old fireplace. From the table you can admire the lake and its boats. There are two bedrooms: the first with a double bed and a single bed , and the second with a bunk bed. The kitchen and the bathroom, recently renovated, are large and comfortable.
A holiday on this Island is an exclusive and unforgettable experience, a journey in the past, a perfect escape from routine… when the last boat and the last daily tourist leave the Island you can appreciate it in its full authenticity.
Spending a holiday at Isola dei Pescatori means tasting the typical atmosphere that is more prominent in the early morning and after sunset, when silence prevails, the light becomes softer and the water reflects the oblique sunshine. You can relax and scan the horizon with its calm water, glimmering lights from the coast and the green mountains reflected on the lake surface. From this privileged spot you can really appreciate the best that this island has to offer, get in close contact with the true nature of the place, and enjoy a refreshing dive into the lake.
How to get to the island:
Isola dei Pescatori is conveniently served by public and private motor vessels and offers a wide range of options for excursions in the surrounding areas, including all the other islands. If you like mountains, there are various beautiful wild spots nearby too.
Anyone who happens to pass by LakeMaggiore is inevitably impressed by the wonderful view on the Borromean Islands: Isola Madre, Isola Bella and Isola dei Pescatori, offering a unique and suggestive scenery.
Isola Madre, the largest of the archipelago, is a genuine floating botanical garden. A favourable microclimate and constant maintenance are the secret of this magic setting and this magnificent garden with lush vegetation and rich wildlife.
Isola Bella is almost entirely occupied by the astounding Borromean Palace, built by highly reputed artists in the XVII century. It is open to the public, that can admire its splendid architecture, painting collection and gardens.
Isola dei Pescatori, however, is probably the most appealing to travellers visiting Lake Maggiore in great numbers every year: it is a picturesque maze of narrow streets and old houses, with small shops and typical restaurants. Its charm did not pass unnoticed to some prestigious visitors, such as Hernest Hemingway, Arturo Toscanini and George Bernard Shaw,
In this evocative cadre you can find our exquisite apartment on the Island, which used to be the summer residence of a famous antique dealer who exhibited a part of his collections in its dining room.
