9 nights in the Italian Lakes

Jump to last reply

Hello! We are trying to finalize our lodging for 9 nights in the Italian Lakes in July. We are a family with 3 kids interested in scenic hikes, boating and such. This should be a relaxing stay with plenty of pool time and strolling to lunch or dinner. There is availability for the apartment we like in Bellagio for 6 nights. From there, I am thinking of Stresa on Lake Maggiore. Since we are headed to Switzerland afterwards, I think going to Lake Garda isn't as practical, but I could be wrong. Can anyone suggest a good second stop to compliment our Bellagio stay? Also, would you keep 6 nights in Bellagio and 3 in the other spot, or make it 5/4? I am hesitant to cut any time from Bellagio, but if Stresa is also great it would be fine. I can't say because I haven't been to Maggiore. If Stresa is a good plan, what about Villa Palazzo Aminta? It looks traditionally opulent with a lakefront pool. Very appealing after a self catering apartment stay! Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give!
