    Overview

    Enjoy the views and walk to the village

    Villa Lago Maggiore is set in the nice lake shore village of Baveno and in walking distance to shops and Baveno’s lake promenade. The villa was built in the 17th century on an ancient monastery and features a unique 17th century Andalusian patio. The villa is surrounded by a spacious terraced garden with private parking facilities. Descending the garden path guests can reach the swimming pool overlooking the lake.

    Villa Lago Maggiore is located 500 meters uphill Baveno, where you can find many restaurants, bars and alimentary shops. The villa is also close to Stresa (5 km) and less than 60 km from the International Airport of Milano Malpensa. It can easily be reached in about one hour by highway or by train from the Milano Centrale railway station.

    The property features the Main Villa (sleeps 12 people), the Guesthouse (sleeps 4 people) and a magnificent garden. All living areas are furnished with a mix of modern design and antiques that have belonged to the owner's family for hundreds of years. Spacious rooms with high ceilings and large panoramic windows offer comfortable living. The interiors are bright and nicely furnished.

    The property has a total 8 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, a total of 16 people can be accommodated. If your group is smaller than 16 people you can benefit from the advantage of a price reduction for groups up to 12 people (in this case the guesthouse will not be available).

    The magnificent garden (1.5 hectare) was designed in the twenties by Maurice Blondel (1861 - 1949) - a Catholic positivist French thinker, author of the “Philosophy of Action” who bought the villa after the First World War and created a unique piece of art. It is fully fenced and rich of wonderful centuries old plants. This very special garden features three distinct styles, each characterized with different flora and vegetation: the formal Italian box garden, the English rose garden and the Japanese water garden. All around are peonies, azelias, cammelias and valuable trees, including Japanese maples, cedars, chestnuts and a spectacular canphora tree. Thanks to the owner ‘s restoration the enchantment of Blondel´s garden has been preserved.

    Please note:
    Villa Lago Maggiore is not suitable for people with walking difficulties. The local train passes 250 meters from the property (downhill and separated by other properties, trees and bushes). 
    Resident staff: One staff member lives at the property and works 8 hours a day (Tuesday off). He prepares breakfast every day. He lives on the top floor of the property in a separated unit with independent entrance.

    A taste of the good life for a large group
    Left on Sep 4, 2018 for a stay in Aug 2018
    A peaceful and beautiful villa - roomy and charming. Gorgeous lap pool. Short walk into town. Stunning gardens that were a bit overgrown. We were a party of 11, celebrating my mother’s 90th birthday - Lots of room for privacy, and lovely common spaces to gather, eat, cook, play bridge, etc.
