Sleeps: 8 - 10 Bedrooms: 5 Bathrooms: 4

Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

Looking for a room with a view? What about a villa with a view - lots of them! From its peaceful hillside position, Villa Tessa benefits from incredible views over the glittering waters of Lake Maggiore. And positioned between the village of Meina and the charming town of Arona with its lovely promenade, restaurants, bars and cafes, you're never far from a delicious Italian meal!
This exquisite property is perfect for an extended family or multi-generational holiday, with lots of sleeping options including a dedicated children's bedroom to make the kids feel welcome. Sleeping up to 10 people in five elegant bedrooms, including a feature one that brings the outside in with its lovely garden hues and flowers, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Step into the living area and you'll feel instantly relaxed, whether it's poring over the many books you'll long to read, the inviting rugs or the inspirational view through the floor-to-ceiling windows. And for more outstanding vistas, head into the kitchen with its stylish breakfast bar and table, where there are more inspiring camera-ready scenes to help you cook up a delicious Italian meal.
It's  impossible not to want a refreshing dip when looking out at the cool shimmering waters of Lake Maggiore - especially when those Italian rays shine through. No worries, just head for the inviting turquoise pool outside. Surrounded by lawns, hedges and pretty flowers, it's a lovely spot. But, if you wish to recline and enjoy the sun, you can do so on the many sun loungers or comfy seating up on the first-floor terrace, while the younger children enjoy themselves on the swings and slide in the garden.
Want to venture out for a day trip? Aside from the lovely towns nearby, Stresa - the pearl of the lake - is a mere 15km away, and from there you can hop on a ferry to the magical Borromean Islands. And what's not to love about visiting the Piedmont vineyards, romantic Lake Orta and even Milan for a spot of shopping. Enjoy...

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • Lake Maggiore is simply stunning and Villa Tessa certainly makes the most of the views with its floor-to-ceiling windows and position on a peaceful, residential hillside
  • It's very family friendly - the villa is fenced all around, there's extra security on the windows and a play area for younger children
  • The villa is not only in proximity of a lovely village, but also to some of the main sights on the lake including Stresa and the Borromean Islands

What you should know…

  • To reach Stresa and some of the day trips a bit further out, car hire is recommended
  • The playground equipment in the garden is really only suitable for much younger children

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.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a professional chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs.

From peeling the spuds to helping with the service, our chefs will ensure you have the most relaxing – and definitely the most delicious – holiday you can dream of.

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
