About The Experience
Historic and modern elements converge at this charming property close to Stresa, overlooking Lake Maggiore. Incorporating the original walls of a nineteenth-century farmhouse, this lovely space is perfect for three couples or a family. A private garden, two outdoor dining areas and stunning views from both levels of the farmhouse ensure that the majesty of the lake is front and center.
Location Description

The farmhouse enjoys a quiet setting close to the historic town of Stresa, which sits alongside Lake Maggiore, in Italy’s Piedmont region. From the property, the lake is 600 meters by car (no access from the property) and the town center is 1.3 kilometers away by car. Stresa features a promenade, church, market, bakeries, banks, pharmacies and a ferry dock that offers boat trips to nearby towns and the Borromean Islands. A cable car runs a 20-minute route from Stresa to the summit of Mount Mottarone, where there are panoramic views of the area’s seven lakes. The Villa Pallavicino Zoological Park, which features a grand 19th-century villa, gardens and a zoo, is located on the outskirts of the town, 3.3 kilometers away. A car is necessary.
