A QUIET COUNTRY HOUSE WITH A GREAT VIEW OF LAKE MAGGIORE

Belgirate Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, single occupant, 3 bedrooms, sleeps 7, large private garden.

The house is built in the middle of a 20.000 sqm property overlooking Lake Maggiore. A great view in a silent, reserved, exclusive place, with seasonal flowers and fruits, is the key for a relaxing holiday. There is a car park in a large private parking just 50m from the house. Enjoy your stay in this 2 floors, 3 bedrooms, 2 bath rooms property with a wonderful Veranda and a working Fireplace inside and a BBQ on the terrace outside. You can reach the house from Malpensa airport within 35km car drive. Linate Airport and the city of Milano are only 70km away. Wonderful Stresa with boat service to the Borromean Islands is only 8km away. A 18 holes Golf Course is less than 10 minutes away, while Belgirate village and the beach is just a 15 minutes walk in the woods or a 5 min. car drive. What else can you wish for? Just book your holiday now!

The Garden: The House is surrounded by 14.000 meters of private woods and garden. A gardener will keep the place clean for you while you enjoy its fruits and its flowers. You can get fresh fruit in the garden almost all the year round.You start in May with wild Asparagus and Morons, in June you have Raspberries and Cherries, in July Nuts and small Pears, Blackberries and Figs in August, Grapes in September and Chestnuts in October and November.

For additional pictures, please contact us for web site address.

Beaches: In a hot sunny day the best way to spend the warmest hours is swimming in the Lake.

The water is fresh and a constant current keeps it clean in Belgirate.

If you like to meet other people you can choose the Public Beach which is located at the entrance of the village coming from Lesa.

If you like to stay on your own then I suggest you take Via della Masseria which starts few meters above the end of La Bargajana road. It is a little steep with 3 tight turnpikes but it is paved and takes you directly to the lake (by the way this is the fastest way to Stresa as well!). At the end of Via Masseria Park your car, cross the SS 33 (Sempione Statal Road) and you will see on your left an access to the beach. A big Oak Tree will provide all the shadow you need.

If you are looking for a sandy beach a nice alternative is 20 km north in Feriolo or just 2km south in Villa Lesa.

One Day Trips & Things to do: 3 suggestions for a 'One Day Trip':

A trip by Cable-Car from Stresa to Mottarone mountain top: wonderful view on the Alps and on the Lake. A Car ride to Orta S.Giulio passing thru Il Mottarone: after that v. nice view from Mottarone, you will find a peaceful out-of-it-all atmosphere in Orta S.Giulio. A trip by Boat visiting S.Caterina del Sasso (a nice Monastery in a breathtaking place), Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori (nice Restaurants), Stresa and then back to Belgirate!

Botanic Gardens. If you like gardening then you might be interested in visiting one of the numerous Botanic Gardens in Stresa, Verbania or Isola Madre.

Local Markets. Everyday from 9:00 to 13:00 you have a Local Markets in one of the villages near Belgirate. They might not be large but they are always worth a look! This year you have: Monday/Baveno, Tuesday/Arona, Wednesday/Luino & Sesto Calende, Thursday/Lesa, Friday/Stresa, and Saturday/Verbania.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Stefano



We have now returned to the UK, but I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at La Bargajana. What a beautiful place, with the most idyllic view - we did not want to leave.

Thank you for letting it out to us. I have written in detail in the visitors book, but just wanted to thank you personally.



best wishes

My name is Giovanna, I am a teacher and I live close to Milano

Stefano Salteri purchased this villa in 1990

My husband Stefano inherited the house and the surrounding land in 1990 from his father. La Bargajana used to be the farm house of the family villa in Belgirate but it was abandoned since the early 70s. The renewal effort took around five years and since then La Bargajana became our weekend retreat and the place for short brakes all year round.

La Bargajana is a unique place, it is isolated in the middle of nature with a wonderful view of the lake. At La Bargajana you are close to everything you might want but you can totally relax yourself and enjoy silence and peace. It is a unique place and we are very happy to see that our guests agree with us!

Comments from Owner Guestbook

‘We just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful holiday in your hous in Belgirate. We have never experienced such tranquillity – it was lovely. We loved the spectacular views from the house and all round the lake. It is such a beautiful place and we found the local people very friendly.’ Peter and Sarah Robinson, Aug.2005.
‘We had a lovely week here at La Bargajana. The view from the terrace over the lake is probably the best view we’ve ever had at a cottage. We couldn’t resist the log fire, even though it was August, so we had a couple of late evenings in front of a fire with a bottle of wine.’ Nicola Quinney, Aug.2005.
‘Fabulous, wonderful spiffing!! We loved it here! Definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever spent an holiday… will be sad to go! We have all truly enjoyed out time here… is so peaceful, private and great for exploring in the woods or small walks and we too had the privilege of seeing a thunderstorm! Positevely “out of the world” experience! July2005

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5
We all had a really wonderful time here. A quiet location, with the house is set high up on a hillside with a fantastic view of Lake Maggiore and the mountains beyond. A big garden with grill for those lovely warm evenings or an open fire in the living room for when not.
We came here for a week of mountain biking (plenty of trails in the area) but also the usual holiday requirements and were not disappointed.
The house has lots of character - we appreciated all the personal touches that the owner made. It really felt like being in the home of a friend - so high compliments indeed.

Very pleasant holi

  • 4 of 5
A very pleasant house in the nature with a fantastic view on the Lake ... Nice décoration and clean. Very well located to visit the region. Good équipement to cook. Claudius, who welcomes us was very nice. You aren t disturbed by the neighbors....

The end of the road to access to the house is not very easy ( rocks and very stiff). A additionnal bathroom would be perfect,if your are more than 4 people !, and please change the vaccum cleaner which is out of order ....You may also add a toaster.

We keep a good memory of this house and of the area!

Owner's Response: We try to improve La Bargajana every year with new works or piece of forniture, following advice from our guests.
In 2012 we added a new vacuum cleaner, as suggested by our guest, and a new sofa bed in the veranda.
More improvements will come as we move forward!

Great place that could even be greater

  • 3 of 5
Settings wonderful, house very comfortable.
Fantastic garden, especially if you travel with a dog.
Location great
Kitchen / dining area great.

What can be improved:
-Cleanliness!!! When opening the drawers and cabinets in the kitchen, you quickly understand all ustencils, pots, pans, cups, plates cutlery need thorough cleaning before use. The bottom of the drawers and cabinets is never cleaned.
- plenty of dust and spider webs everywhere
- terrasse not 100 % clean (don't look under the mat)
- Lack of wifi. These days, for such a house, wifi is not an option anymore. I am managing a B&B/hostel in Brussels. Internet access/WIFI is part of any modern traveller. I needed access for professional needs, and this caused me big big problems.
- Airconditionning in the bedrooms would be more than welcome. This house heats up very fast.
- lack of presence in English , capable of helping guests with specific questions about tourism, dining, access to activities, technical issues...etc....gives a very impersonal feeling.
Owner is 'far" away. Meeting new guests when they arrive doesn't seem to be important.

Owner's Response: La Bargajana is a cosy country cottage, surrounded by a large private property, isolated in the middle of nature.
We deliberately want to keep it simple and natural: some shortcomings (like absence of WiFi connection or Airconditioning) will unfortunately come with it...
Come for the comfortable house in a wonderful setting with a great view and you will get it!

Beautiful atmosphere of La Bargajana

  • 4 of 5
We were a group of 4 adults and 4 small children staying in La Bargajana in July 2010. The place was beautiful, especially the nice garden with beautiful flowers and a lake view. Great atmosphere to bbq during the evenings.

Overall, the residence in highly recommended for a group of 6 to 8 people. The only downside was the steep private road (the last 300 m) but you'll get used to it relatively fast.

Tolle Ferien in großem Garten

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben ein wunderschön gelegenes Anwesen vorgefunden, mit großen Zimmern, prima Ausstattung und herrlicher Aussicht. Alles war, wie beschrieben, nur der Anfahrtsweg ist etwas beschwerlich, weil es sich nicht um eine normale Fahrstraße sondern einen betonierten Waldweg mit großer Steigung handelt. Die Waschmaschine war älteren Jahrgangs aber funktionnierte einwandfrei, die Küche hatte genügend Besteck und Teller für 8 Personen. Man kann wunderschön draußen sitzen und grillen, wandern, der Wanderweg beginnt direkt hinter dem Haus, hat Ruhe und Erholung. Die nahe gelegenen Orte Lesa und Belgirate sind schnell zu erreichen und der Lago Maggiore ist mit dem PKW in wenigen Minuten angelangt. In der näheren Umgebund finden sich wunderschöne Urlaubsziele und für eine große Familie ist dieses Haus ideal. Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter war einwandfrei und vor Ort fanden wir sehr viele Informationen. Mailand und der Flughafen sind nur einen Katzensprung entfernt und zum Shoppen bot sich Arona an. Wir kommen sicher wieder!
