Property description

Enjoying a prestigious location in an exclusive residence along the lakefront of Meina this fabulous property (ID 767) is perfect for romantic getaways!

The property boasts a spectacular open plan living area with a panoramic lake view sitting area with SAT TV, a high quality kitchen fitted with marble tops and stylish high gloss cabinets and providing guests with all the desired appliances including an electric gas hob and oven, a microwave, fridge and coffee machine.

The dining area is perfect for breakfasts and romantic dinners as the lights twinkle in the towns on the distant shore and for the long summer months an additional alfresco dining area can be enjoyed from the very sunny and spacious terrace, which boasts spectacular views of the fascinating Borromeo Islands and picturesque Lake Maggiore and provides a BBQ ideal for alfresco summer parties. The accommodation is ideal for couples and small groups of friends with a spacious master bedroom with king size bed and double bed, and a contemporary fitted shower room fitted in warm stone tiles.

The property is situated in a beautiful gated residence made up of just 9 lake view properties, all fitted to a high modern finish with lake view balconies and shared facilities which include an outdoor swimming pool with lakefront terrace, shingle beach with boat slip and off street allocated parking.

The residence is ideally placed in the picturesque village of Meina, which provides an idyllic place to relax and unwind.

Meina:
The idyllic village of Meina, situated along the southern end of the Piedmont coast of Lake Maggiore, has been regarded since the 19th century as a delightful tourist destination, when wealthy families from Novara and Milan built their elegant villas here. Today guests can still admire the beauty of these fine villas and gardens, and explore the historical centre which is 20m above the lake level. Some good local restaurants are located in the village and an excellent bus service operates through the town, taking visitors to the popular destinations of Arona and Stresa in under 15 minutes

The surrounding area offers golf courses, horse riding centres and sport clubs and Milan Malpensa airport is also just32km away.

Lake Maggiore:
Lake Maggiore is 54 km long, with a coastline of over 150km and at its widest is 12 km. Like all the other Northern Italian lakes it is a deep glacial basin fed by rivers; Verzasca, Giona, and Cannobino flow into the lake. Its major outlet is the Ticino which, in turn, joins the river Po just south-east of Pavia.

Piedmont and Lombardy are two major regions surrounding the Lake but the most northerly section of Lake Maggiore extends a dozen kilometres into Switzerland, the lowest point above sea-level in Switzerland.

The climate as with all these protected lakes is mild in both summer and winter, producing lush vegetation, with beautifully planted gardens in wonderful villas growing rare and exotic plants. Well-known gardens include those of the Isola Madre, Isola Bella and the Isole di Brissago, that of the Villa Taranto in Verbania, and the Alpinia botanical garden above Stresa. These lakes are almost like a lost world. They also have their monsters apparently!
