3.0

When you step inside this 17th–century villa, there’s a sense of being transported to another time and place. With its atmospheric presence and poetic beauty, it’s the kind of home that’s been designed for beautiful gatherings. Set within the charming village of Baveno, just a short drive from Milan, this is the perfect setting for friends and family to celebrate in traditional Italian style. The communal spaces feel intimate and personal – with artistic details that inspire curiosity and intrigue. Follow the creative spirit through the pink inner patio and into the kitchen – this is a wonderful place to cook and socialise. No doubt you’ll be inspired to take your morning coffee outside and into the gardens. With views across Lake Maggiore and the famous Borromeo Islands, it’s easy to get lost in the magic of this setting. Spend slow days by the swimming pool, reading beneath the trees and enjoying long lunches on the terrace. It’s only a short walk from this home onto the main boulevard of the village where you can pick up any supplies. Or wind your way around the lake, stopping in a local cafe to admire the views. As the sun sets across the mountains, you’ll love coming together around the large dining table to raise a glass of local wine, and share the beauty of Italian living.

About Lake Maggiore

A jewel in the crown of the Italian lakes, a trip to Lake Maggiore is, in fact, an international affair.

Pastel sunsets and silhouetted peaks make this spot an artist’s paradise, and just 37km from Lake Como, Maggiore is a welcome escape from nearby tourist traps. Literally translating to ‘large lake’, there are...
