Right on the shores of Lake Maggiore, with stunning views across the lake, this elegant, contemporary villa has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a welcoming living / dining area. The terrace provides an outside living area and the garden slopes down to the beach.
The villa is right on the Lake with private lawns stretching to the shore. Renovated in 2014, the property is furnished to a high contemporary standard. The property itself is on two levels, with the majority of the living and bedroom space being on the first floor. On this level, there is the kitchen, living / dining area, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The main bathroom was refurbished in 2015 to provide guests with a walk-in shower. The living area is very welcoming with armchairs, sofas and a dining table, along with a fireplace for those winter rentals. Elegant chandeliers hang from the ceiling and there is access to a large terrace. The terrace itself has a dining table and chairs along with a more relaxed seating area around a coffee table. The interior has been particularly arranged so that all rooms offer amazing views over the lake and to the picturesque towns on the opposite shore, Meina, Lesa and Belgirate. The lower floor is completely open to the lake and includes the laundry room. There is direct access to the lake, with a gently sloping lawn, leading to the beach area.
Ranco is a quiet lakeside town however boasts a number of amenities that guests will find useful including a village shop, lakeside cafe / bar and three restaurants including a Michelin Star restaurant. The villa is also less than a minutes walk from the boat stop where you can catch a boat to all the other towns and villages on the lake.
A note from Jo
There is nothing better than enjoying direct lake access when you're holidaying in the Italian Lakes and this villa delivers this in bucketfuls! The garden is a wonderful space, with lawns sloping down to the lake water. There is nothing more peaceful than enjoying a BBQ here in the evening listening to the lake water lapping against the shore. However, as an added bonus, we love the fact that if you don't feel in the mood for cooking, you have a choice of great restaurants to walk to (or you can even catch a boat to one of the restaurants in the other lakeside towns).
