How to reach Villa Piceni
‘‘Village charmant qui mantien ce que son nom promet: un beau tour sur le lac’’ – Stendhal
Belle girate, meaning Beautiful walks, truly describes this delightful village nestled on the western shore of Lake Maggiore.
Situated on the extreme end of the promontory that separates the southern part of the Lake from the gulf of Borromeo, and half way between Arona and Stresa, Belgirate boasts a comfortable climate tempered by the lake and the Vergante’s hills that surround it.
The location, beauty, and the history that sinks its roots into a bygone era have attracted illustrious characters including poets, writers, industrialists, and patriots who loved to walk in it’s narrow streets.
Goethe, Stendhal, Manzoni, Hemingway are only some of those visitors to Belgirate who here, have found inspiration for their stories.
