"Rent our Frauscher 1017 Lido for the day and combine this excursion with a trip to an Italian market, and visit the picturesque islands at Lake Maggiore and the historic ruins of medieval castles. We are happy to prepare a picnic or champagne and nibbles to enjoy on the boat as required."
Castello del Sole is surrounded by 150 hectares of Terreni alla Maggia SA winery agricultural land, which all belongs to the same owner. We foster the same philosophy and the same demand for quality there as we do at the Castello. Quality produce such as wines, risotto rice, grains for pasta, potatoes, asparagus, and fruits are cultivated for Castello del Sole's own use as well as for sale. We would be delighted to organise a guided tour of the agricultural farm for you.
The gorge-like Verzasca Valley stretches as far as Tenero. Craggy mountains with altitudes of between 2,000 and 2,800 metres rise up on either side. Those who succeed in the climb can see the 29 km-long valley rising gently towards Sonogno.
A bridge built in the Middle Ages, in the impressive Verzasca Valley village of Lavertezzo, has two arches and makes for a popular snapshot. The view of Verzasca from the bridge above Corippola is splendid. The Verzasca river flows right down to Lake Vogorno: in the mid-1960s, the Verzasca was held at Vogorno and a dam over 200 metres tall was built, creating an artificial lake 7 km in length.
