Villa Arianna is an elegant, stand-alone home crafted in stone set on a majestic spot overlooking the glittering shores of Lake Maggiore, with beautiful private gardens and a pool.

This sumptuous home can accommodate 12 guests across six bedrooms and six bathrooms, set across airy and light-filled proportions, together with touches of local and rustic charm, with a nod to the local style. The exterior is finessed with a note of Italianate charm, with its distinctive cloistered facade. With terracotta tiled roofs, pretty cream-toned shutters and elegantly manicured gardens, this home sets the scene for a tranquil yet colourful group or family holiday on the Northern Italian lakes.

The interiors at Villa Arianna are both home-like, understated, yet also chic. The large and breezy open-plan living space features high ceilings with exposed timber beams, beautifully upholstered furnishings with accents of gold and crimson for a note of grandeur. The double aspect magnificently sized windows in this airy space just offer endless light and write-home-about views, while the dining room emulates the same feel. Large windows, open space and generous proportions offer the feel of a neo-classical Orangerie, while the sleek kitchen is a modern affair of glossy monochromes and slick styling.

Each of the serene bedrooms at Villa Arianna is finessed with simplicity, charm and grace, with accents of colour and pretty fabrics. With high ceilings and sleek wooden floors, this elegant home offers abundant space for the whole family.

Set on a hilltop, with wonderful views of the lake, this stunning home is only five minutes by car from the charming towns of Verbania and Pallanzo, nestled in an elegant stretch of the southwestern shores of Lake Maggiore. Key attractions to this area include the magical Borromeo Islands, one of which is the Isola Bella, known for the opulent grandeur featured in the homes and exquisite gardens, the Botanical Gardens at Verbania, and the museums, pretty promenades and lakeside beaches. Water sports on the lake, boat trips, hiking in the hills and pony trekking are all great ways to enjoy the region while taking an evening “passeggiata” in Pallanza, when the sun softens over the lake, against the backdrop of the flower-filled balconies and vibrantly ornate homes, will be about as good as it gets!

What you should know…

  • Set up a very steep, winding road with some hairpin turns, so careful night driving is needed and ideally a small car (or two)
  • Air-conditioning is featured in some rooms only, but fans can be provided
  • Villa Arianna makes for a wonderful base for a family holiday but is not suitable for infants under the age of 2
  • When minimum occupancy is booked, some rooms may not be accessible and this remains at the owner's discretion. Please enquire should you require details

Villa Arianna is in an elevated spot with stunning views across Italy’s second-largest lake, Lake Maggiore, which is known as being quieter and less tourist-heavy than Como and Garda, while this sumptuous home sits overlooking the Gulf of Borromeo and the jewels of the lake: the Borromeo Islands. The most famous of these is the beautiful Isola Bella, with its incredible palace, gardens and fairy-tale setting, it’s a must-see.

With the buzzing Verbania and the elegant Pallanzo both just a five minute drive away, visitors can sample a slice of local life, from the stunning gardens at Verbania, to the promenade at Pallanzo, to museums, boat trips across the lakes and hiking in the surrounding mountains.

Verbania is known unofficially as “the garden on the lake,” it offers beautiful views, opulent villas and water sports, as well as boat trips to the islands. One of Verbania’s key attraction is its botanical garden with no less than 40 acres of rare plants and stunningly manicured gardens.

Close by Intra is known for its excellent shopping, while Pallanzo features pretty Art Nouveau architecture and there’s an excellent museum in Verbania dedicated to landscapes, the Museo del Paessaggio, that is an excellent choice for rare cloudy days.

Just ten minutes along the lake shores, Ghiffa is known for its unique UNESCO World Heritage Site: The Sacred Mountain of the Most Holy Trinity. This magnificent natural park covers hundreds of acres of unspoilt mountainous terrain, sprinkled with spiritual sanctuaries. Trails lead into the hills and wind through the woods; ideal for hikers and escaping the bustle of the crowds.

Ghiffa has another unusual attraction - the Museo del Cappello (the Hat Museum). Dedicated to the classic felt hat that was once commonplace with local gentlemen necessity, the museum traces the manufacturing history of this former thriving local trade!

From elegant dining in Verbania, stunning walks among peacocks in the hauntingly beautiful Isola Bella, to strolling among the rare plants in botanic gardens to lazing days away on the lakeshore beaches, this region has so much to offer.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The southwest shores of Lake Verbania make for a wonderful family holiday destination. With water sports, pony trekking, ferry rides and mountain bike trails, active youngsters will have so much on offer.

Travelling in a cable car is a memorable way to enjoy the region, with breathtaking views, while the tourist train at Orta San Giulio will be a hit with children of all ages. A boat trip to the Borromeo Islands offers an enchanting day out for the children, with peacocks roaming freely and stunning gardens to frolic in.

Macagno beach is an ideal spot for a day of waterside fun - it is fully equipped with cafes and a beach bar; likewise, Cannobio has plenty of water-based fun with the added attraction of being a pretty, cobbled traditional village that parents will love.
