Borromean View Villa | Lake Maggiore
“An elegantly renovated 1940s villa, the Lake Maggiore View Villa is a superb choice for families and friends who are seeking a relaxing retreat with exceptional facilities.”
Built in the 1940s and originally a lawyer’s family home, the Lake Maggiore View Villa is an elegant property set over 3 floors. It was renovated in 2014 with a refined design featuring vintage touches and paintings by a local artist, as well as large windows that endow every room a breath-taking view.
Sleeping 10 guests, the 5 bedrooms are situated on the first floor. Stroll up the majestic wooden staircase to find each beautifully decorated room, complete with satellite TV, mini-bar and private marble bathroom. On request, the ground floor TV room can be converted into an extra double bedroom.
The ground floor of the Lake Maggiore View Villa has several shared living areas where you and your travel companions can relax and socialise, as well as a smart stainless steel kitchen. Make music with the grand piano, put your skills to the test on the onyx chessboard, enjoy a movie on the 3D TV or use the Playstation3 and the AppleTV. The villa is well-equipped to welcome families, with high-chairs, baby beds and other childcare accessories, plus a good selection of toys. There is also a basement floor wellness area with jacuzzi, Turkish bath and gym equipment.
3 extra guests can be accommodated in the sixth room.
The villa’s exterior spaces allow you to enjoy the best of al-fresco living. A transparent roofed arbour and barbecue grill are conveniently located for meals on the lawn beside the 12 x 5m swimming pool (opened from May to September).
