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?

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.
