Our beautiful fascinating historical Villa lies in one of the most characteristic villages of Lake Maggiore.The flowered and perfumed Garden is ideal to relax after a nice swim in the lake.But if you like Expo and Milano are less then 50 minutes away
The house is an ancient hunting lodge built around 1850; it lies in the picturesque peaceful village of Solcio nearby the lake, immersed in a beautiful private flowered garden.
Camellias, Hortensiae,Roses all over the garden create a feeling of tranquillity and relax.
Although not directly on the lake, our house enjoys a magnificent view of the little gulf of Solcio and a little stream runs along the house boundary wall. The lake is a few yards away and it is possible to swim in wonderful little beaches nearby.
Your car can be parked inside our private garden, or in a little parking lot on the lake shore. In the local village you find a market, a few restaurants, a bar and a tobacconist- all at about 100 yards form the house. Large supermarkets and shopping centres are in a few kilometres range.
Nice walks start from the village and go uphill into the chestnut forest. The second highest mountain of the Alps, the Monte Rosa, is less than an hour drive away. If you like to swim you can find little nice beaches nearby.You can also hire a sail or a motorboat to sail across the lake in a nearby village.
A private sporting club is also close by; it offers tennis courts, a big swimming pool and other facilities. If you prefer to play golf, an 18 holes golf club is a few kilometres away.
The house has a beautiful painted front and in the inside you will revive the charm of an old patrician leisure villa; you will enjoy the ancient furniture, a pleasant dining room with frescoed walls and ancient glass cabinets. In the room there is also a nice led TV. Wifi internet is available.
Next door, you can relax on the comfortable armchairs and old sofa of the drawing room, among a wooden wall library and an 1800’s writing desk.
The large kitchen has maintained the old charm with the original working table and cupboards; the big fireplace is still in place, as well as an old wood stove, once used to cook all meals .Besides the old fashioned furniture, the kitchen is clearly equipped with all modern appliances, i.e. fridge, freezer, gas cooker, microwave oven and dishwasher.
On the same floor, facing the garden with a nice wooden big balcony there is a small cosy room with its own bathroom.
The two main bedrooms (king size bed) and adjoining bathrooms are on the second floor, both with a balcony overlooking the garden and the lake.
Each room is also equipped with an individual washbasin – as it was customary in the 1800.
Connected with one of the rooms there is another bedroom , with twin beds, also with a view on a private garden.
From the 15th of november to the 31st of march there will be a small extra charge for the use of heating equal to 1, 5 euro per cubic meter of gas used during the stay.
We hope that this will be a quite romantic way to relax and enjoy your vacation.
Vivo a Roma e sono innamorato di quella città. Amo anche moltissimo il lago e la natura che qui é bellissima e rigogliosa.Ho moglie e quattro figli. Abbiamo anche 2 cani un gatto e una cavia peruviana. Ho una piccola barca a vela e quando siamo sul lago navighiamo moltissimo e facciamo anche le regate. Mi piace anche passeggiare in montagna e esplorare luoghi nuovi, d'inverno andiamo a sciare sul monte Rosa che é bellissimo e affascinante. Amo il verde e cerco di curare i fiori e il giardino nel modo migliore possibile
Mi piace anche leggere, e rilassarmi con un buon bicchiere di vino vicino al caminetto. Se sono qui quando vengono gli ospiti mi piace accompagnarli in delle belle gite o in qualche navigazione sul lago.
