A luxurious Lake Maggiore retreat!

Enjoying a prestigious location in an exclusive residence along the lakefront of Meina this fabulous property (ID 767) is perfect for romantic getaways!

The property boasts a spectacular open plan living area with a panoramic lake view sitting area with SAT TV, a high quality kitchen fitted with marble tops and stylish high gloss cabinets and providing guests with all the desired appliances including an electric gas hob and oven, a microwave, fridge and coffee machine.

The dining area is perfect for breakfasts and romantic dinners as the lights twinkle in the towns on the distant shore and for the long summer months an additional alfresco dining area can be enjoyed from the very sunny and spacious terrace, which boasts spectacular views of the fascinating Borromeo Islands and picturesque Lake Maggiore and provides a BBQ ideal for alfresco summer parties. The accommodation is ideal for couples and small groups of friends with a spacious master bedroom with king size bed and a double sofa bed in the living area, and a contemporary fitted shower room fitted in warm stone tiles.

The property is situated in a beautiful gated residence made up of just 9 lake view properties, all fitted to a high modern finish with lake view balconies and shared facilities which include an outdoor swimming pool with lakefront terrace, shingle beach with boat slip and off street allocated parking.

The residence is ideally placed in the picturesque village of Meina, which provides an idyllic place to relax and unwind. The village boasts many fine villas and gardens which sprung up during the 19th century when the fashionable families from Milan and Novara decided to holiday here. An ancient town centre can be explored and there are some good local restaurants and a frequent lake bus service, with many more amenities to be found in the nearby town of Arona and attractions in and around Stresa, a popular visitor town just 15 minutes away, including the Umbrella Museum, Villa Pallavicino and the Mottarone funicular railway. A Transport museum is also situated in nearby Ranco. For thrill seekers 'Alpyland 'on the summit of Mottarone is an alpine coaster/bob ride experience and one definitely to try!

The idyllic Borromean Islands which can be viewed from the property itself are also worth exploring and Isola Bella is just a 10 minute boat ride from Stresa, with its medieval buildings and enchanting Doll Museum.
Milan Malpensa airport is just 32km away making this part of Lake Maggiore highly accessible.

Location description from manager

The Lake Maggiore region

Lake Maggiore:

Lake Maggiore is 54 km long, with a coastline of over 150km and at its widest is 12 km. Like all the other Northern Italian lakes it is a deep glacial basin fed by rivers; Verzasca, Giona, and Cannobino flow into the lake. Its major outlet is the Ticino which, in turn, joins the river Po just south-east of Pavia.

Piedmont and Lombardy are two major regions surrounding the Lake but the most northerly section of Lake Maggiore extends a dozen kilometres into Switzerland, the lowest point above sea-level in Switzerland.

The climate as with all these protected lakes is mild in both summer and winter, producing lush vegetation, with beautifully planted gardens in wonderful villas growing rare and exotic plants. Well-known gardens include those of the Isola Madre, Isola Bella and the Isole di Brissago, that of the Villa Taranto in Verbania, and the Alpinia botanical garden above Stresa. These lakes are almost like a lost world. They also have their monsters apparently!
