We are located in Magognino, a typical mountainside Italian village, set in a tranquil, rural location. Guests have access to our large, terraced garden, which has breath-taking views of the lakes and mountains. Behind the village are woods and pastureland with sheep and Alpine cows roaming, lovely for walking. The elegant, lakeside town of Stresa, bustling with restaurants and cafes, is only 10 minutes away.
The apartment is spacious and bright. It has 2 bedrooms, and can accommodate between 4 and 6 people. It is on the ground floor and accessible to people with limited mobility.
Zugang für Gäste
Guests have full access to the large terraced garden where they can relax, or walk up to the top of the garden, where there are spectacular views of the lake and mountains.
Interaktion mit Gästen
As we are living above the apartment, we will be available to answer any queries as they arise and assist guests with any of their requirements including lifts to Stresa if necessary. We also respect the privacy of guests, should they prefer to be left alone.
Weitere wichtige Infos
The apartment on the ground floor has views of the village and some mountains. There is a private patio where guests can sit. Guests are welcome to use the garden from which there are spectacular views of the lake and mountains. There are areas for sunbathing with sun loungers and tables and chairs. Some of the higher parts of the garden are steeply terraced, so very young children should be supervised. However there is a clear demarcation between the safe, flat areas and where the terraces start. Most children who come to stay love the garden.
Another thing is there is no grocery store in the village. For general groceries, guests need to go to the supermarkets in Stresa and other locations. We can also help out with food if guests arrive late at night.
We are happy for our guests to enjoy themselves and we ask that they respect the quiet, peaceful location of the village.
We moved to a village above Lake Maggiore last August. It was a big step moving from London to a small village, but we were ready for some changes in our lives. I retired from teaching music in London schools to pursue work composing and publishing music, so it seemed like a good time to do something completely different.
We viewed several properties around Lake Maggiore, looking for one that would provide rental opportunities, as well as somewhere we wanted to live. When we saw our villa, we fell in love and instantly put an offer on it, and here we are.
The surrounding beauty is overwhelming, and we never get tired of looking at the mountains, which change all through the day.
We have 3 grown-up children who visit us frequently, and we hope one day to have lots of grandchildren to enjoy this wonderful place.
