Overview

Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

Villa Albino is a large, family-friendly holiday home that occupies an impressive position overlooking Lake Maggiore, close to the popular town of Stresa. The spacious rooms offer the chance to socialise with loved ones whilst appreciating the naturally beautiful scenery from numerous lake-facing windows. You can get even closer to the stunning views by unwinding in the lush garden that Villa Albino boasts.

The nearest village is within walking distance, with Stresa less than 20 minutes away by car. Here you can stroll along the picturesque lakeside promenade and relax on a sandy beach. A variety of watersports on Lake Maggiore and boat trips to nearby islands are also easy to access from Villa Albino.

The open-plan living/dining space is warm and welcoming. There’s an array of comfortable sofas and armchairs for either watching the television or having the lovely fireplace as a focal point on cooler evenings. The dining table is positioned to make the most of the views, with a door opening onto a terrace. The kitchen also offers direct access to a terrace with an outdoor dining table and lounge area for enjoying pre-dinner drinks.

Upstairs is where you’ll find five bedrooms featuring a combination of double and single beds that make this villa perfect for families. There are also two well-appointed bathrooms on this floor. The lower floor is home to a fantastic space with pizza oven and barbecue grill, with a dining area for casual meals.

Soak up the tranquil atmosphere in the mature gardens that are full of leafy trees and colourful plants, adding to the sense of quiet calm. Recline and take in the views on a sun lounger, then move over to the charming pergola with stone table for dining al fresco.

With Lake Maggiore practically on your doorstep, so is the opportunity to try a number of watersports. The idyllic waters are ideal for swimming, water skiing, paddle boarding and boating.

Drive 20 minutes to the resort town of Stresa and enjoy lidos with swimming pools as well as sandy stretches by the sea. You can also take the ferry over to the Borromean Islands and explore several other towns and cities along the shores of Lake Maggiore. The beautiful city of Como with its historic buildings, cable car and waterfront promenade is just over an hour’s drive away.

Stroll into the village (300m) to enjoy the rural and laidback atmosphere, as well as the sight of a pretty village church. There’s a bar and post office on offer here, but you’ll need to drive to Stresa (10km) for restaurants, shops and more amenities in general.

A must-visit of Stresa is Villa Pallavicino, which is home to beautiful gardens and a zoo. There’s also a picturesque lakeside promenade to enjoy a leisurely walk whilst taking in views over to the Borromean Islands. Watch boats coming and going across the water as you pass by immaculate gardens, then stop for ice creams and a spot of people watching. Don’t miss the chance to take the cable car up Mottarone mountain for panoramic lake views.

Catch the ferry over to the Borromean Islands to see more grand residences. These three small islands are also home to lush, exotic gardens that you can walk around. Another spectacular garden can be found after driving 30 minutes to Verbania (22km). The botanical garden here features over 20,000 species of plant from around the globe.

A little further afield is the stunning city of Como (80km), with the journey there taking just over an hour by car. It’s a great place for historical and cultural sightseeing, with the Gothic cathedral one of the highlights, along with the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio. Como also has its own funicular railway, with a ride taking you up to the pretty village of Brunate in less than 10 minutes. Once you reach the top, you’re rewarded by wide-ranging views over the city and lake.
