Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

The apartment is 90 square-meters with an enclosed private garden of 400 square-meters. The house is 5 minutes walking distance to the shops, bars, restaurants, the ferryboat station and the lake with its own beach in the lovely lakeside town of Angera but in a quiet and beautiful country area with lots of lovely walks! Once here there is no need to use the car at all. Even if you want to go to Milan, you just have to walk to the ferryboat and take the ferry to Arona and the train from there to Milan or up to Switzerland along Lake Maggiore.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

I live in a very pretty, small town called Angera on Lake Maggiore near Milan and surrounded by the Italian & Swiss Alps, Its short drive (40 minutes) to go over the border to Switzerland. You can also go to Switzerland (Lorcano) by ferryboat from Angera. There are plenty of wonderful things to do in the area, trips on the lake, lake beaches, scenic train rides into Switzerland, Hiking/walking and cycling in the nearby Alps. Angera itself has some great restaurants and bars. If you want to see Milan and all that it offers you only need to take a train (50 minutes) In fact it is possible to use my place as a base and drive or take a train to all the nearby Italian cities of culture, Turin, Genoa, Verona, Venice, Bologna, Florence etc

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Lake Maggiore & the Noce Beach in Angera: the beach is free entry and you can go and sit with your towel wherever you like. Angera Kids play park & trampoline is on the lake, along the tree-lined promenade. Angera ‘Rocca’ Castle: It is a beautiful castle, still partly lived in by the same family who owned it through the years, the Borromeo Family. The castle itself is really lovely and the views are amazing. It houses one of the biggest doll and toy museums in Europe. Well worth a visit. There is a medieval garden and a coffee shop there too.

Ferry to Arona, a lovely town opposite Angera on the Piedmont side of Lake Maggiore, nice shops, bigger town so much more to offer for shopping than Angera.
If you so wish you may take the train from directly Arona to Milan, avoiding use of the car.
Ferry to Stresa and the Borromean Islands: lovely trip. Ferry or drive to Santa Caterina Monastery.

Private boat trips on lake Maggiore can also be booked with an English speaking host.

Larice Beach in Cadrezzate, only 10 minutes’ drive away: great vibe private beach on the smaller lake Monate, grass, water clean because no power boats allowed. Entrance fee is about 5 euro each. Sunbeds extra, pedalos to hire. Beach bar with good restaurant, facilities basketball, football, volleyball, good for smaller and bigger kids.

‘Wave’ swimming pool in nearby Sesto Calende with big water slides and a kiddies pool.
