Our home is peacefully situated in a small street within walking distance (600 m) from Mombello village where you can find a local bakery selling breads and pastries, a small supermarket, bars and a restaurant.

Laveno is only 3 kilometres away. From Laveno you can easily hop on any ferry and explore the Lago Maggiore. There are regular schedules towards Intra, Verbania, Stresa and the magical Borromeo islands with their ever-blooming tropical flora of palm trees, magnolias, roses and camellias.

The cable lift brings you up on the "Sasso del Ferro" from where you can enjoy the wonderful landscape of the snow-capped mountains of Swiss and Italian Alps reflecting into the deep blue waters.

Day trips can easily be made to the not-to-be-missed Eremo of Santa Caterina del Sasso, built into the cliffs of the lake, the towering castle at Angera, the lively, waterfront town of Luino boasting on Wednesdays the largest open market of the area.

3 Km away is the lakeside town of Arolo with its cute little beach and lake-front promenade. Nearby, Cerro and Reno are charming little villages with promenade, marina and sandy beaches where you can enjoy the sunset in one of the summer bars. Here you can get information about sailing lessons for children and adults and boat rental.

In addition to the water sports, be sure not to miss the great opportunities for paragliding, delta plan, mountain biking, cycling or trekking.

The closest beach on the Lago Maggiore is in the charming village of Cerro and only 2.5 km away from Casa Tina
