Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

Life seems so simple when outside and surrounded by breath-taking views. And that's precisely what makes Villa Castagna such a wonderful holiday - there's plenty of opportunities to appreciate the beautiful vistas.

This panoramic villa in the picturesque town of Pallanza, set in a large private park, boasts manicured lawns, shady trees, an abundance of flowers and perfectly located spots in which to enjoy the view. And, it's within these extensive grounds you can while away many an hour strolling around the gardens or running around with the kids. Fancy a dip? Step into the turquoise infinity pool encompassed by wooden decking - the ideal place to soak up those lake and verdant hillside views.

Wander inside Villa Castagna, and you'll be greeted by a spacious but oh-so-cosy living room featuring floor to ceiling windows with more of those gorgeous views out over the lake. If you're a bit of a bookworm, you'll love this room with its many bookcases, and think of all the places you can go and enjoy a good read in those outdoor spaces. What about the decked terrace with retractable awning, opening out from the living room - an excellent spot for a lunchtime cocktail or sundowner. Or, make your way to the open plan dining area for a sumptuous Italian supper indoors.

Sleeping seven people in three double bedrooms, the options for a family are ideal, and with two bathrooms - both with bathtubs - long soaks for everyone. The fact that all the bedrooms share a balcony overlooking the gardens and glittering waters of Lake Maggiore only add to the appeal of this charming property. And to top it off, a spa with sauna and wellness room is a recent addition that should go down well with anyone looking for somewhere to unwind.

Located on a peaceful residential hill next to the town of Pallanza means you'll have easy access to charming shops, cafes and restaurants. And for an enchanting day trip, hop on a ferry to the magical Borromeon Islands, the pretty town of Stresa, or even to Switzerland.

What you should know…

  • Unobtrusive housekeepers reside in separate part of a house, but they will respect your privacy and may come in very handy for assistance
  • Part of the garden towards the lake is bordered by an iron fence to protect from a steep drop

There's something magical about the lakes of northern Italy bordering Switzerland - the snow-capped mountains, elegant villas, charming villages and narrow glacial lakes, all of which make for a camera-ready scene of eye-popping beauty.

And Lake Maggiore, Italy's second largest lake, is no exception. Sleepy cobblestone villages, exceptional flowers, views over glittering waters, ethereal islands and the odd castle - it's no wonder such illustrious visitors as Byron, Shelley and Hemingway graced its very shores.

When the Simplon Pass train from Switzerland, one of the Alps most beautiful crossings opened, it meant easier access to this beautiful lake. And many visited for all its beauty, including its little islands located on the western arm of this stunning stretch of water: the tiny Isola Bella - a place of decadent parties for the nobility of Europe; Isola dei Pescatori with its population of just 50 people and a number of fabulous fish restaurants; Isola Madre featuring the most beautiful botanical flowers. The Borromean Islands are well worth a visit.

Inland, explore the pretty town of Stresa situated below the majestic peak of Mottarone and enjoy its many cafes, restaurants and bars - especially the ones with views out to the Borromean islands.

Why not take a cable car up Mottarone for a truly spectacular view across the Alps? Amble around the town of Verbania or Cannobio's lakefront piazza with its ancient buildings. Then there's picturesque Maccagno and Luino with its famous market - amongst many more on this enchanting lake that will quite literally take your breath away.
