Whether you’re looking for a villa for a larger group, or simply want some privacy for your morning swim (along with a guaranteed sun-bed) — we’ve curated a list of fantastic properties in the Italian Lakes, all of which have their own private swimming pool.
Villa Castellaccio, Lake Maggiore
Situated on the hillside, this villa overlooks Lake Maggiore on one side and the village of Brezzo di Badero on the other. The private gardens are truly spectacular — measuring nearly 40,000 square metres and set over five levels, which have been carefully cultivated so that guests can enjoy them during their stay. The pool is heated, with plenty of loungers for lazy days in the sunshine.
The villa also has an annexe with two bedrooms and its own large living area — perfect if you’re looking for somewhere where you can enjoy privacy whilst part of a larger group. The owners also provide a full time gardener — who will also set out the pool for the day — and a housekeeping service, to ensure that guests have a truly relaxing stay at the property.
Villa le Selve, Lake Garda

A short walk from the lakeside beaches, this villa has fantastic, large private gardens complete with swimming pool.

The villa is ideally located for exploring the local area; the Vittoriale degli italiani has an outdoor theatre with a fantastic summer season, the city of Brescia is nearby with numerous cultural events, and every May the Mille Miglia runs — a racing event for vintage cars. The location makes it the perfect place to stay for keen hikers and water sports lovers alike.
