The COVID-19 Pandemic has placed us in a position where we need to make decisions in order to put the safety of our clients and staff as our highest priority.

With this in mind we have come to the decision that it has become essential to temporarily close the doors to our retail branches and ensure the well being of our staff and clients.

In line with government advice on social distancing we have closed our doors to limit the amount of contact our staff and clients are exposed to. Our team are still available to answer your questions by email and can be reached by emailing

We will be contacting clients who currently have bookings and may be affected. We are working through these bookings in date order and will be in touch shortly.

We thank you for your understanding in us having to take such precautions. We hope you and your family stay well and look forward to seeing you all when we re-open the doors to our branches.

Best Wishes
From all at Prestbury Travel

          Playgrounds of the rich and famous, the Italian Lakes are areas of outstanding beauty. Lake Maggiore boasts a snow-capped mountain backdrop to the enchanting Borromeo Islands. With the exceptional resort of Stresa, known also as the Queen of Lake Maggiore and Milan nearby, holidays to Lake Maggiore are the perfect way to relax and unwind.

          It is said that the translucent quality of Lake Maggiore is due to the teardrops of unrequited lovers and romantic poets such as Byron, Shelley, and Ruskin. A temperate microclimate also made this region a preferred hideaway for 19th century aristocrats who built palatial villas on its pristine shores.

          Lake Maggiore has an exceptionally mild climate with the land around the lake often termed The Garden of Europe due to its plethora of flowers and luxurious plants. Most visitors will enjoy luxuriating in refreshing swims, relaxing strolls and scenic cruises on the lakes and there is easy access to Milan for fashionable shopping and sightseeing. It can therefore be said that Lake Maggiore holidays have all that you could possibly need to relax. Al fresco dining is prevalent during the hot summers, and spring and autumn are popular as they are warm and sunny.

          The main resort of Stresa boasts exceptional views across to the Borromeo islands, a lakeside beach and access to Mount Mottarone through a cable car lift it is a charming location for Lake Maggiore holidays. With the three islands that make up the Borromeo islands within easy access, there is plenty to see and do to fit in with everyone’s tastes. Despite being located in one of the most northern parts of Italy, bordering the south side of the Alps, it enjoys a Mediterranean style climate allowing those on Lake Maggiore holidays to enjoy plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures.
