Villa Verbania

  • Type : Villa
  • Occupancy : 18
  • Location : Piedmont

General

This villa is located in a spectacular setting in Italy's Piedmonte region, on the northern end of Lake Maggiore. Here, the vineyards roll right down to the lake and the setting is second to none. 

This villa is a masterpiece of both Italian architecture and natural beauty and offers one of the best viewpoints on the lake.   To the ground floor the baroque style porticoes wrap around the villa offering the fortunate visitor a different viewpoint of the lake from each and every room.  And the views only become more impressive as one climbs further up this three storey villa.  

Stepping inside can be compared to a visit to an Italian historical monument with high reaching ceilings, a grand solid oak staircase, wonderful parquet oak flooring and beautiful period and antique furnishings.  However, the grandeur of a bygone era combines to create a wonderful and comfortable space in which to relax and rest your mind.  All mod-cons have been considered for your stay.  The space is immense with each and every room offering a private and peaceful place.

The garden tumbles down, tier upon tier to a fantastic 16m x 8m swimming pool.  Again, nothing has been forgotten with changing rooms offering hot showers and fridge to keep the Prosecco cool!  Continue down the tiers to the lake road where a pedestrian crossing provides direct access to the lake itself just 5 minutes away on foot.  Indeed, the town of Verbania is only 15 minutes walk from here

Shrouded by trees and foliage is the secluded house-keepers cottage.

From 2015, additional services offered by the owner and payable locally are the use of a helipad, a speedboat on the lake and a chauffeur driven Rolls Royce.

 

Location


Although Lake Maggiore claims to be the largest of the lakes (maggiore meaning ‘greatest’) it is in fact the second largest lake after Lake Garda at 54km long with a coastline over 150km.  It is a deep glacial basin formed over 12 million years ago and crosses the border between Switzerland and Italy.

 

Over the centuries it has been the inspiration for many a writer, poet and artist and during the 18th and 19th centuries Maggiore became synonymous with high style and class and home to the grand styles of the epoch Art Nouveau and its Italian counterpart Liberty.

Sat amidst the lake itself are the Borromean Islands; a collection of small private islands that are available by water taxi and we suggest you spend time exploring a least three of these.  Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola Pescatori have been collected over the years by the Borromeo banking family from Milan

Isola Bella is famed for her sumptuous palace; baroque in style she is full to the rafters of 16th and 19th Italian works of art, antiques and treasures.  It also holds a place in history as the venue for the 1935 Stresa conference that aimed to restore peace to Europe during the 2nd World War.  It is said that Bonaparte and Josephine also spent a night or two here.

The gardens of Isola Madre were designed upon themes of an English stately home and offer visitors a wonderful and vibrant experience and you may meet a white peacock meandering around the grounds too.

Isola Pescatori is the only island with a permanent population and is in essence a fishing village.  Head here for a true fish supper!

Lake Maggiore offers a multitude of walks, bike trails, boat trips, villas and gardens.  Water sports can be found in abundance including sailing, windsurfing and canoeing.  There is the Lake Maggiore Adventure Park if you have energy to burn whilst a visit to Stresa with its generations of exclusivity and collection of shops and restaurants is also worth a visit.

The rest of the lakes are also to be explored; Orta, Lugano, Como and Garda, whilst the elegance and historic centre of Milan is just over an hour’s drive from the lake itself.

Client Testimonials

This company really knows their stuff and recommended our family to stay longer in each location. We didn't listen to them, but wished we had in every single place we went. They recommended Sestri Levante over the Cinque Terre which was our favourite destination on our entire trip. We visited Rome where we stayed in the outstanding Hotel Locorno where they know the owner there, like in every place we went. It made a difference in Italy when they knew who had arranged our trip, like they gave us special treatment or something.

We are planning on going back to Italy in 2020 and definitely having the IVS team organize everything!
