Lake Maggiore is 5 mins drive away from the yoga shala. It is the one of the largest lakes in Italy, hence the name. The water is deep, clean, great for swimming and tends to get to a comfortable temperature of 20 - 22 °C in July and August, however it's also fine to swim on sunny days from around April through to October. We do!
Some of it's banks have sand and some pebbles, with the waves lapping on the shore it feels similar to being at the beach. Perfect for a picnic… or a gelato
