Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Villa San Remigio was built at the end of 1800 to crown the romantic love between the Marquis Silvio della Valle di Casanova, poet and musician, and Sophie Browne, painter, who wanted to build here "the garden of dreams".
The waterfront portion of the park with the old private chapel overlooking the lake, recently transformed into a modern house of great charm and originality, is available for rent DIRECTLY FROM THE OWNER.
Living in villa San Remigio means embracing the lake from all the windows; walking through a park full of fragrant trees and flowers, which runs for 300 yards on the lake shore; bathing and sunbathing on the private beach; relaxing in the Finnish sauna and hot jacuzzi outdoor or in the turkish bath indoor; breathing the pure air of Villa Taranto and Villa San Remigio parks, over 40 acres of greenery that surround the property. These parks, the lake and the Alps are the only things in sight from the house.
You can enjoy a lunch in one of the three outdoor picnic areas, veritable open-air dining rooms; you can read a book or listen to music on the shore of the lake, or by the water lily pond sitting on the large circular stone seat where the Marquise Sophie loved to spend her time in contemplation of the lake.
The property is fully equipped and serviced by our gardener and housemaid; your holiday will be much more comfortable, unique and fascinating than in the best luxury hotel.
Villa San Remigio is situated in the most beautiful location on Lake Maggiore, the Castagnola promontory in Verbania-Pallanza, just north of the Borromeo Islands, where the view encompasses the entire lake from north to south.
The house is surrounded by the parks of San Remigio and Villa Taranto, probably the most beautiful botanical garden in Italy.
A cycling/walking path passes by the house and runs along the lake until the charming village center of Pallanza at less then 2 km. At 100m, in front of Villa Taranto, there is a ferry station taking you anywhere on the lake from the Borromeo Islands, Stresa, the monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso, the Angera castle, all the way to Switzerland.
We recommend trekking in the National Park of Valgrande, the largest wilderness area in Italy, but also an outdoor museum of the ancient civilization of the Alps.
