Just a short walk from village shops and restaurants, Ninfa di Lago is an elegant, air-conditioned lakefront villa with heated pool enjoying magnificent views over Lake Maggiore and the Borromean islands, with Stresa just three miles away.
Built in the 1940s as a holiday home by a wealthy Milanese family, this substantial three-storey luxury villa features light and spacious interiors in which classic bespoke Italian furniture and soft furnishings create a renied and sophisticated atmosphere. This property is also provided with all modern comforts such as air conditioning, pool heating and a fully equipped fitness & wellbeing area encompassing a gym, Jacuzzi tub, Hammam, relaxation area and herbal tea room. Surrounded by manicured terraced gardens overlooking the splendid Borromean Gulf and set against the striking backdrop of the soaring pre-Alpine peaks, Ninfa di Lago offers the quintessential lake retreat to relax and recharge those flagging batteries.
Among the landmarks of Lake Maggiore, you must include a visit to Stresa, only a few miles from the villa. This elegant lakeside town is renowned for its Belle Epoque buildings, lovely promenade, fine selection of cafes and restaurants and would be perfect for an evening stroll with ice-cream. From the pier you can hire a speed boat to explore the lake at your leisure or use the regular ferry service to reach the spectacular Borromean Islands with their aristocratic palace and botanic gardens once owned by the prestigious Borromeo family. Rocca d’Angera is another jewel of this region, towering over the east bank of lake Maggiore. Once an ancient Roman castle, today it houses several interesting collections worth viewing. If you are not scared of heights, trips to the Monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso and Mount Mottarone are also strongly recommended, for the breathtaking views over the lake and the surrounding mountains.
