3 BEDROOM ITALIAN VILLA WITH TERRACED GARDEN AND STUNNING VIEWS OF LAGO MAGGIORE

Verbania Villa Rental Photos and Description

Three bedroom two bathroom villa with garden and 2 patios. Sleeps up to 6

This lovely 3 bedrm independent secluded villa is nestled into the hillside beside Lake Maggiore. The villa is on two floors approximately 150m from the lake with panoramic lake views from the living room and all bedrooms. Parking is available for 2 cars next to the villa. Upper floor: 1 double bedroom with balcony, fully equipped kitchen, shower room/toilet, living room with real fireplace and balcony with al fresco dining area beside a mountain stream. Downstairs: two large double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom. All bedrooms have direct access to a balcony overlooking the lake. Central heating in all rooms and free Wifi. Outside is a large paved patio again overlooking the lake, perfect for evening drinks and dinner. To the back of the villa is a private flowering terraced garden on 3 levels with the mountain stream running down on one side. The lake is about 150m away with a small beach at the end of the road. The pretty villages of Cannobio and Cannero Riviera are both just 3 minutes by car. There are walking & cycling paths directly from the house and also in the magnificent mountain forests surrounding the lake. Note that the house is accessed via a steep road and there are 38 steps leading from the parking area up to the house so this villa is not suitable for those with walking disabilities.

Location: This independent villa is located on Lake Maggiore, the second largest of the Italian Lakes. It has a mild climate from May to October, despite being close to the Swiss border and the Swiss and Italian Alps. Snow can occur from late November to late February and snow tyres/snow chains are recommended for these periods. The villa is accessed 300m up a very steep single track private road and visitors should be aware of this. There are also steep steps up to the front door of the villa. The pay-off is the spectacular views over the lake, the sound of the mountain stream outside the kitchen window and the terraced hillside garden planted with fragrant and flowering trees and shrubs . The house is not overlooked and offers peace and serenity to all who visit. There are many good restaurants and cafes in the villages along the lake, as well as historic buildings, churches and museums nearby. Walking or cycling in the mountain forest is unparalleled with waterfalls and snow covered peaks

Notes: The villa has recently been re-furbished to retain its traditional style but with modern flair. The whole house has new wiring throughout and a new boiler, so plenty of hot water and central heating! And now with a new spa themed on suite bathroom AND FREE WIFI!

We have a lovely flowering terraced garden planted with hazelnut, azalea & wild strawberries, accessed through two wooden gates. The garden is on a very steep hillside and has paved and unpaved access paths with great views of the lake. The gates are locked for safety. but guests can ask for the gates to be unlocked but do so at their own risk. The paths can be slippery and overgrown and although we endeavor to keep the access paths maintained, we are only at the villa a few times a year and the paths do deteriorate. There is also a steep, fast running stream at the side of the garden which is not fenced off beyond the access gates. Guests must bear these items in mind before requesting use of the garden and do so at their own risk, especially if allowing access for children. Children MUST be supervised at all times.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Liebe Familie Tyson,

wir haben in ihrem Haus am Lago Maggiore eine schöne Zeit verbracht. Ihr Haus haben wir sauber und gut ausgestattet vorgefunden, es war alles da, was wir brauchten. Der Ausblick auf den See ist grandios und das neue Bad ist wirklich sehr schön geworden .Es war zwar für die Jahreszeit zu kalt und wir konnten leider nicht draußen sitzen, aber wir hatten an mehreren Tagen viel Sonnenschein und es hat kaum geregnet. Wir haben sehr viel unternommen, die Landschaft, die Natur und die Wanderwege nach Cannero, Cannobio und im Vale Cannobina sind herrlich.!!!!



We spent a lovely time in your villa on Lago Maggiore. Your house was very clean and very well kitted out, there was everything we needed. The view out to the lake is really fabulous and the new bathroom has been transformed beautifully. It was actually too cold for that time of the year and we couldnt sit outside unfortunately. But we did have several sunny days and it hardly rained.



We undertook a lot whilst we were there and the countryside, the Nature and the walking trails towards Cannero, Cannobio, and Vale Cannobino are wonderful!

THE LOCATION IS MAGICAL WITH STUNNING VIEWS.

  • 4 of 5
The villa is very private, peaceful and atmospheric with every home comfort imaginable. Staying 'at the villa' was a popular option during our week long stay for sitting out on the terrace, eating al fresco and planning the next adventures. The kitchen is well equipped and cooking is a pleasure in the spacious open plan area.The walks just steps away are well marked and actually take you somewhere so it is easy to create a 'mission'. The local villages, islands and nearby Switzerland provide a variety of places to aim for with more than enough choice for a week's holiday. Driving not for the weak hearted or 'Sunday driver' but with a little effort all is possible. Sunday market only enjoyable if you go early and leave the car outside the town.

AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This house has an amazing view of the lake. Its a steep drive up but the view is worth it. The house itself is well kept and comfortable with a stunning main bedroom with a verenda that looks out over the lake. Its is well equipped and looked after by an excellent friendly agent. The area is lovely , we particularly enjoyed cannobio and isola madre. We will definately go back for a longer stay.

A RELAXING WEEK.

  • 5 of 5
An excellent villa situated above lake Maggiore in the pleasant village of Carmin Inferiore. All bedrooms have a balcony which overlooks the lake. The owners have a real gem in Eugenia, who is the owners representative. The villa was clean, airy and well presented. There is plenty of information regarding the local area available and the free WiFi was a real bonus. The local restaurants in Cannobio and Verbania had a good range of Italian food at acceptable prices. i would certainly recommend this villa to friends and family with one caveat, there are steep steps up to the villa, any
one who has mobility problems would find it very difficult. Finally it is an incredibly steep and winding, single track road to the car park, which makes for an exciting time when you leave or return!

MARVELOUS

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here during an extraordinary warm period (mostly 34 degrees) and had a marvelous time with our children of 15 and 16 years old. It is a really nice house and the view is magnificent. We enjoyed it in the morning as well as in the evening.
The lake was more quiet than we expected, a pleasant surprise. We rented a boat ourselves one day (from Ghiffa) and it was really nice to experience the wideness, also having a look at the small islands just in front of Cannero and faring once again along the Borremeo-islands near Verbania. During the first week we got curious about the apposite side of Carmine and so we could explore this too.
Just before the house below there is a small beach, a few steps further there is a larger one, just before the camping, on which we were the most, lying under the trees and swimming in the nice and cool water. On the way back to the house we had to climbe again, sometimes with reluctance. Anyhow, we kept our condition well. Also we walked a few times to Carmine Superior which we can recommend as well. A real nice walk of about 20 minutes from the house. If you want to walk more and further, you need good walking shoes, which we did not all take with us.
Futhermore, we were glad we had a small car. The driving along the narrow roads was not always a pleasure and the walk to the beaches: you had to be careful all the time.
Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful house !

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a good relaxing holiday at our villa. Yes the narrow roads can be a challenge but they are really picturesque, particularly when driving in the mountains through Val Cannobio where the forest is thick and you can find quiet streams and waterfalls to walk along and admire. Hiring a boat in Giffa was a great idea - we will recommend this to our future guests.

Hope to see you back soon

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with the views from this villa already when looking at the pix in the Internet, and booked because it also seemed to have three equally good bedrooms each with terraces and the same magnificent view, and separate bathrooms for two families. In reality, the villa and the views turned out even better than expected! Cannobio, the near-by town, was one of the nicest in the area - in two weeks we had time to visit most of them by car, boat, and train (the Lago Maggiore Express is recommended for a one-day tour on the lake and surrounding mountains). Just up our own street Via Traversa, really nice Nordic walking paths leading to near-by towns and villages. Plenty of good restaurants in them, but most evenings we enjoyed cooking at home and dining al fresco with the fantastic views.

The place was ideal for adults with teenagers. We agree it would not be suitable for small children or disabled or even obese people - you need to be able to climb steep stairs (and carry luggage, shopping etc.) both outside and inside the house. A small car is recommended due to the narrow roads in the area!

The villa is accessed via a steep private road so cycling home is only possible for the experienced cyclist! Golf and horse riding is found in nearby Verbania
