Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Villa Gioia is situated in a unique lakeside position on Lake Maggiore offering the discerning client a luxurious blend of design, space and style with uninterrupted panoramic views across the Lake. The Villa was built in the 19th century and was internally restructured and modernised in 2012. From the use of only the highest quality materials, to the refinement of the smallest architectural detail, the property retains the external charm and beauty of the original building. The Villa offers a magnificent vista across Lake Maggiore to the Italian Alps and as far as the eye can see to Switzerland. The idyllic Borromean Islands are a 'stone's throw away' from the lakeside garden on the shore line which has direct access to an exclusive beach and berthing jetty for private boats and water sports. The villa entrance is via electronic gates with parking and is conveniently located within a few minutes' drive to the centre of Stresa, and the international railway station and ferry port.
The internal space offers 350 square metres over three floors with the option of using the internal lift for your comfort and convenience. The ground floor comprises a spacious living area, study, laundry room and separate bathroom. The kitchen, dining room, pantry and bathroom are located on the first floor with a large accommodating terrace overlooking the Lake. The second floor has two double bedroom suites with private bathroom and balcony. There is also a large converted rooftop space which offers additional flexible accommodation for up to 4 people and is a particularly suitable space for families, young adults and guests.
The comfort of ECO friendly technology, underfloor heating and solar and thermal insulation ensures warmth over the colder months. As would be expected in an exclusive property, wireless internet and satellite TV are available. Externally, you can relax and dine informally on the private terrace overlooking the lake or under the pergola in front of the romantic garden facing the translucent quality of Lake Maggiore's waters.
The old town centre of Stresa comes to life in the evenings as the bars and restaurants spill into the square with smart shops on the narrow cobbled streets and a long lakeside promenade. Nearby leisure activities include first-class golf courses, the 'International Music Festival' in Stresa over the summer months, boating and sailing on the Lake and a cable car to Monte Mottarone with its magnificent views, Alpine Gardens and skiing during the winter months. The property is ideal for professional people or families seeking a residence for vacation and relaxation purposes in a tranquil setting but within easy commuting distance to Malpensa International Airport, Milan and Switzerland.
Much appreciated by Byron and Shelley, a temperate microclimate made this region a preferred hideaway for 19th century aristocrats who built palatial villas with landscaped gardens on its pristine shoreline and panoramic hills. No-where can these delights be better experienced than at Villa Gioia.

Al visitatore che, per la prima volta, giunge a Stresa, si offre uno spettacolo mozzafiato. Sul principio, la superba vetrina del lungolago, delineato da filari di palme, da giardini fiorenti e dalle facciate di maestosi e lussuosi alberghi in stile. Poi, volgendo lo sguardo al lago, come se emergessero per incanto dalle acque stesse, le incantevoli Isole Borromee (Isola Bella, Isola Madre e Isola dei Pescatori). Basta lo splendore di queste visioni per far comprendere come Stresa sia potuto diventare uno dei massimi ritrovi del turismo internazionale. La cittadina, già a metà dell'Ottocento era la località lacustre di soggiorno più elegante, la più frequentata dall'alta borghesia internazionale. Simbolo della vitalità di Stresa è l'animatissima piazza dell'imbarcadero e la vasta e alberata piazza Marconi. Qui si affaccia la neoclassica parrocchiale di S. Ambrogio. A destra della chiesa c'è la celebre Villa Ducale , del 1770, anch'essa in stile neoclassico. La notorietà deriva dall'essere stata la residenza del filosofo Antonio Rosmini, che qui ospitò anche Alessandro Manzoni.
