Meet your host, Paolo

Host on Airbnb since 2013
  • Identity verified
I have been sailing since I was 8 years old. For years I have done national and international dinghy regattas. Then I moved on to the cabin cruisers where for some years I was skippered for charters organized by me in Sardinia, Corsica, the Tuscan archipelago and Liguria. I have always been the owner of several boats and now it is with a 9 meters Jeanneau "Folie douce" that I will accompany my guests to Lake Maggiore.

Where you'll be

Lake Maggiore is often known only from the ground. Being able to visit it from the water has a completely different flavor. Starting from the marina of Laveno (Porto Labieno) located in the center of the town, you can easily reach the Borromean islands, the sanctuary of Santa Caterina del sasso, Arona, Feriolo, but also Cannero Cannobio and the castles of Cannero.
