What you'll do

With a quiet pace we will head to the chosen location, where we will stop, turn off the engine and enjoy a fabulous aperitif, enjoying the sun that still warms us.

Always a lover of water, I have sailed for many years on seas and lakes and, for more than a year, I have decided to turn my passion into activity.
I have traveled thousands of miles on a sailboat and am in love with my "gozzo", which allows me to turn and admire the beauty and unique places that Lake Maggiore can offer those who know how to see.
With my slow navigation I savor every meter traveled on the water, delighting me with the landscape that surrounds me

Where you'll be

I will be happy to welcome you on my boat and to show you the Hermitage of Santa Caterina, the Bella-Pescatori-Madre islands and the beautiful water villas. It will start from Arolo, a small town on the Lombard shore that is only an hour from Milan and approx. 25 minutes from Varese by car.

We had a wonderful boat ride with Dario. From the beginning, Dario was very accommodating. He traveled across the lake from his normal pick-up location to meet us at a dock near our Air BnB. He then took us around the islands and across to Verbania and let us jump out for a swim. Then he provided a whole spread of meats and cheeses and our aperitif of choice while we enjoyed the view of the sun setting behind the hills. Dario was super friendly with a great disposition. He even let us bring our dog along! The price was very reasonable, too. I highly recommend this experience!
