Even though my mind keeps going back to Curaçao once in a while, my blog is back in Italy! Tonight I’ll give you a tip where to have a lovely lunch with a spectacular view on the lake Maggiore…and not only!
Located in a wooded area you will find the Trattoria San Salvatore. It’s located within the remains of an old monastery in the upper hills near Lesa, on the west side of Lago Maggiore. Here you can enjoy a Piedmontese lunch and have an enchanting view at the same time. They even say that on a clear day you can see the top of the duomo of Milan!!!! I’ve been there twice but unfortunately I haven’t been able to see it yet. Will keep on trying… You can also have dinner if you want but I prefer lunch as you have a ‘clearer’ view over the lake. And if you already had lunch you can also just sit and take a drink and relax!
In the area you can have a nice walk and visit the Sanctuary of San Salvatore and the two chapels. As you will find yourself in a wooded area, in autumn you can even go chestnut hunting here. We found quite a few this past autumn!
Just keep this place in mind when you will visit the west (Piedmontese) side of Lago Maggiore as it is absolutely wort a visit!!!
