Live the high life at the Hermitage...
You could certainly retreat to the mountains round here for a life of fasting and contemplation.... that’s not compulsory though and at Campeggio Hermitage in the Piedmontese village of Santa Maria Maggiore they’d prefer you to enjoy what’s known in Italy as la dolce vita. It’s not hard up here, staying 750 metres above sea level, next to a quiet mountain stream...
Well appointed for views and trips to the village for eats, treats, cable car rides and the world’s only museum devoted to chimney sweeps (really), this site is also well furnished for family stays. There's a games room and a playground for kids, and grownups aren't forgotten either: the site has a bar and restaurant for long leisurely eats and drinks.
For mountain walks, stroll five minutes to the cable car taking skiers to the pistes in winter and summer hikers to the high trails, cracking views and teeming wildlife of the Piana di Vigezzo.

To go deeper into the wilderness, make your way to the Alta Valle Antrona Natural Park an hour’s drive away, for hikes through wooded hills of birch and larch and mountain lakes surrounded by meadows of wildflowers.
If you want the mountains without the mammoth effort, the Centovalli Railway is just the ticket: the line from Domodossola (25 minutes) to Locarno in Switzerland passes, as the name suggests, through a hundred valleys, with jaw-dropping views all the way.
Or just gaze up at the peaks from your inflatable down on the waters of Lake Maggiore... Cannobio (45 minutes) is your nearest lakeside spot, a pleasure town on the shores of a playground and a destination for everyone into watersports. Ride the ferries and visit the islands, hire bikes and cycle round, stopping for dips and bites whenever you fancy; alternatively, do dolce far niente as they say in Italy, as sweet nothing is supremely easy to do here.
If you do get itchy feet, cross the border and cruise into Locarno (45 minutes), in the Italian-speaking Swiss canton of Ticino. It's very unSwiss if your idea of the country is all cheese and cowbells; Locarno with its steamy climate and palm trees seems somehow tropical. If you've had enough of Lake Maggiore, visit Locarno's falconry centre to see fab displays of feathered predators.
