Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

Close to a small, charming village in the Piedmont region of Lake Maggiore, Villa Davicini occupies a peaceful position within a large, lush garden. Its sociable, open rooms and extensive outside space makes it an ideal base for family holidays. With the heart of the village being less than a 10-minute walk away, Villa Davicini is also perfectly located for convenient amenities.

This laidback villa feels like a home-away-from home, with comfortable furnishings and plenty of facilities on offer. The most chilled-out room inside is the ground-floor living space. There are two distinct areas that both feature large sofas for getting everyone together. One space is perfect for relaxing and taking in the garden views through glass doors that open onto the outside space. There’s also a small table with chairs for grabbing a quick lunch in between visits to the garden on lazy afternoons. The slightly more grown-up living space is where you’ll enjoy movie nights, with a grand fireplace making these evenings even cosier. Dinners are easily served at the table and chairs that are found in the fully-equipped, modern kitchen.

There are three double bedrooms at Villa Davicini, with the fourth bedroom with two single beds being ideal for children. Several of them offer lovely garden views that give them an even more tranquil feel, and two of the doubles have their own en-suite bathroom. There are two family bathrooms for enjoying an invigorating shower before heading out for the day or unwinding with an evening bath.

The villa sits within a beautiful garden with immaculate lawns for the children to play on. Dotted around the garden are various types of trees that create quiet, shady spaces for fully appreciating the idyllic atmosphere. Colourful plants and flowers make the garden feel even more like an oasis of calm. Also found across the garden and terraces are outdoor dining and seating areas. The large, private swimming pool is joined by several sun loungers, a changing room with gym equipment and a bathroom with shower.

A lovely beach is just a few minutes’ walk from the villa, giving you the chance to swim, hire a boat or try some watersports. There’s plenty to do on and around Lake Maggiore. Stunning hills and mountains are also within easy reach, with hiking and cycling popular activities. The towns of Arona and Stresa are both close by for historic sightseeing and ferry trips to other stunning spots along Lake Maggiore.

Villa Davicini lies within a quiet residential area, less than a 10-minute walk away from the heart of a charming village. Here you’ll find restaurants, bars, a supermarket, bakery and pharmacy as well as a train station with trains to other parts of the lake and even as far as Milan. There’s also plenty of historic sightseeing to do, with several ancient churches and beautiful lakeside villas to take in.

A beach is also within easy walking distance and is where you can go swimming on Lake Maggiore. There is also boat hire and watersports in the village and surrounding region. The surrounding hills and mountains are great for hiking, cycling and horse riding along rugged trails and through stunning valleys.

Driving to picturesque towns along the lake is easy, with plenty of them close by for day trips. Arona (7km) has a pretty lakeside promenade and historic piazzas and streets. There are several churches dotted around the town and in the hills to visit, as well as the remains of an ancient military fortress called Rocca. Also be sure to tick what is probably Arona’s main attraction, the huge hilltop statue of San Carlo, off your sightseeing list.

The popular town of Stresa (10km) is known for its elegant and majestic buildings, such as Villa Pallavicino with its gardens and zoo. Enjoy the 20-minute cable car ride from the lido all the way up to the top of Mottarone mountain. As well as getting fantastic views over Lake Maggiore you’ll also see the ski areas, with the chair lift opening up even more stunning mountain scenes. From Stresa you can also take the ferry over to the Borromean Islands.

The stylish and cosmopolitan city of Milan (77km) with all its luxury shopping opportunities is just under a 90-minute drive or train ride from Villa Davicini. Also a 90-minute drive away is Lugano (95km), with the journey to this laidback city taking you over the border into Switzerland.
