One of the most requested Italian Lake Villas!
This luxurious, beautifully preserved 19th century villa lies on the shores of Lake Maggiore and has its own beach, private jetty and boat dock. The setting could not be more idyllic facing the Borromean Gulf and the famous Borromean Islands and the mountains of Piedmont. The villa is surrounded by a huge park with English-style gardens, ancient trees, flowering camellias and azaleas creating the very picture of romance and beauty.
Your Lake Maggiore wedding reception can be held outdoors under a grand pavilion which is set in the center of the gardens and is a graceful wrought iron structure in the style of the imposing greenhouses of the late 19th century. The pavilion holds from 50 to 400 guests. In addition, the ancient cellars with vaulted arches and ancient stonework are also made available for dancing or receptions. As the evening progresses, guests can move into the old kitchen for freshly baked pizzas made in the wood burning oven.
The villa owns three charming guest houses for longer stays of a week. The apartments are self catering, have their own terrace and green area, and are accessed from the villa's gardens..
Imagine a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony along the lakefront overlooking gardens and mountains! There is a lovely wrought iron arch that can be decorated with flowers under which you can exchange your vows. The bride can arrive by motor boat!
Due to the fact that the villa is in heavy demand, we advise considerable advanced booking.
