The Art Nouveau villa which was built in 1899 is located approx. 300m² above the lake on an exclusive, secluded and sunny panoramic site, with some breathtaking views of the lake and the opposite shore. In 2006 the villa was extensively refurbished and, with much attention to detail, tastefully divided into newly-furnished 1 and 2-room appartments. A special feature are the beautiful stuccoed ceilings which reflect the charm of the villa. There is a washing-machine available for communal use by the guests. The rambling, partly sloping and park-like communal gardens (approx. 8.000 m²), together with the Villa Belvedere in Ghiffa, provide a pool, barbecue and, with in total 3 very sunny communal terraces, a wonderful opportunity to enjoy peace and solitude. The small path around the Mediterranean sloping garden, with its many trees, such as lemon, olive, almond, loquat, pomegranate, quince, etc. offer many delightful views and the chance to regenerate. If Goethe had walked through these gardens, he surely would have been inspired to quote his famous words: „To the moment I would say: but stay, you are so beautiful“. The vantage point Belvedere provides a splendid view of the lake and the opposite shore.
Sports enthusiasts may use the boccia track and a basketball pitch. There is a playground for children. Beneath the villa there is a public beach (accessible by ca. 180 steps), and the restaurant „Villa Bianca“ where you can not only enjoy the splendid view of the lake, but also culinary diversity. Nearby there is a corner shop for the daily necessities. You may park your car within the enclosed estate. To pack and unpack, you may park in front of the villa. Pets are not allowed.
