Pallanza Romantic Villa | Lake Maggiore
“This romantic renovated chapel, located right on the shore of Lake Maggiore, provides guests with a truly unique stay. In this lakeside villa, stunning natural beauty, elegant architecture and modern comfort all combine harmoniously”.
A stay at the Lake Maggiore Romantic Villa is a spiritually enriching one, in every sense of the word. This renovated chapel proudly displays its lofty origins, whilst also boasting stylish interiors, promising guests an unforgettable stay.
The villa’s main living area is based in the heart of the chapel. This open-plan space is furnished with a kitchen, dining table, sofas and an upright piano. A bathroom is located just off this main room. A spiral staircase takes guests up to a mezzanine, which serves as an additional lounge area. A large arched window fills this space with light and provides beautiful views out on to the lake.
Following the spiral staircase down to the lower level, guests will find the villa’s sleeping area. The Lake Maggiore Romantic Villa has four bedrooms: three double and one single. All three double bedrooms enjoy their own bathrooms, two of which are equipped with a shower, the third with a luxurious Turkish steam bath. All four bedrooms are elegant in their interior design, but a highlight is undoubtedly the master bedroom. With one wall composed of spectacular excavated natural rock, and another two walls inlaid with ceiling-high arched windows, this room gives guests the impression of being immersed in the beautiful outdoors and of resting on the water’s tranquil surface.
The Lake Maggiore Romantic Villa also boasts a Finish Sauna, detached from the main building.
The beauty of the villa’s main building is matched by that of its outdoor area. The chapel is bordered on two sides by a pristine, manicured lawn, from which guests can enjoy panoramic views of Lake Maggiore. The villa has two private points of access to the water: a pathed stone deck, equipped with sun loungers and deck chairs, as well as a small pebble beach. The main building is set within a wider botanical garden. Along with its lovely array of flowers and trees, guests will find a lakeside gazebo, furnished with a barbecue: the perfect space for an al fresco dinner.
The Lake Maggiore Romantic Villa is located two kilometres away from the town of Pallanza, on the western side of Lake Maggiore. Pallanza is one of the lake’s most picturesque sites; the centre of the town is dotted with ancient and Romansesque architecture, whilst towards the shore, it provides scenic views out on to the Borromean Islands. A lakeside footpath gives guests easy and direct access to the town.
The villa is also strategically located for those wishing to explore other parts of Lake Maggiore, with a ferry port just a short walk away. Here, guests can catch a ride to many of the lake’s most renowned sites, and travel even as far as to Switzerland.
The closest major city is Milan, at a 90 minute drive a way.
