Villa Laveno is a beautiful country estate ideally situated on the Eastern shore of Lake Maggiore. Built in 1930 for a well-known Italian family, the spacious villa is decorated in classic Italian style with marble tables, decorative wallpaper, and locally designed and handmade furniture. Almost every room overlooks the lake, and the ground floor rooms have direct access to the terraces and gardens. The extensive grounds of the estate include a large pool (open May 3 - Sept 27) with diving board, a separate room with shower and toilet, and garden furniture. The well-maintained gardens offer a plethora of local flora as well as ancient trees and plenty of grassy areas. A short path leads to the lake and a private beach with boathouse. (Please note, Italian law states that other boats from the lake can access private beaches.)
Villa Laveno is situated within the perimeters of the coastal road, at the end of a dead-end lane, and as such, it is very quiet and peaceful with an unobstructed view of the lake. A ten-minute walk finds you in the center of town with access to all your essential needs. With so much to offer, this charming villa is a perfect choice for a relaxing holiday or as a home base for several interesting and recommended day trips. The unique layout of the villa, with two separate wings, affords two families all the privacy and comfort they may require.
