This is a 2 bedroom apartment within a short walk of the lakeside in Meina. The apartment is traditional in style and equipped to a good standard. The Meina lido with outdoor pool, cafe and lakeside bar is a 10 minute walk away. There is a superb fish restaurant within a 5 minute walk as well as a pizzeria within a 10 minute walk.
The property is located on the first floor of an elegant villa in Meina and enjoys its own independent entrance. The property boasts a living area with large, original fireplace. A bar area in this room provides an unusual feature. Moving through the apartment, there are two bedrooms. These can be arranged as either twin or double rooms. These 2 rooms each enjoy their own bathroom. The first is tiled with red and white ceramic tiles and equipped with corner bath, sink, bidet and toilet. The second bathroom on this floor has a shower, bidet, sink and toilet. Finally, there is a small kitchen area with doors leading from the kitchen to a private balcony area. The kitchen is equipped with gas hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There is a table seating four. A communal basement area houses a laundry room and additional bathroom as well as garage space. There is also plenty of secure parking on the driveway of the villa, access to which is via a lockable gate.
Across the road from the villa, approximately 2 minutes walk away, is a small garden and beach area which leads directly on to the lake. The beach is shared with the other villas in the immediate locality. The lake is lovely to swim in, whilst for those who are bringing kayaks with them, it's very easy to pull the kayaks on to this area. For those coming with a boat, the harbour at Solcio is just a short distance away and visitors can moor a boat here for use during their stay. The Meina lido with outdoor pool, cafe and lakeside bar is a 10 minute walk away. There is a superb fish restaurant within a 5 minute walk as well as a pizzeria within a 10 minute walk. Meina is a lovely lakeside village and it's a good base to explore the other towns and villages on this part of the lake including Stresa, Pallanza and Arona as well as the Borromean Islands.
A note from Jo
Whilst this apartment may not boast lake views, it's literally just a short stroll to the lakefront which is a great plus point. The lake is wonderful to swim in and it's wonderful to be able to go for a swim without needing to get in a car. Meina itself is lovely lakeside town, with a couple of superb restaurants and cafes / bars. Whilst you can walk to the lakefront and restaurants, we do still recommend that you do hire a car as it would be difficult to properly explore the area or do your grocery shopping without one. Please note that, for those requiring additional space, this apartment can be joined with a ground floor 3 bedroom apartment to create a larger property sleeping up to 10 guests.
