Stresa villa description

Villa San Remigio

The Villa San Remigio is located on the headland „Castagnola), one of the prettiest places on the Lake Maggiore, North of the Borromeo Islands. The view takes in the entire lake, from North to South. As far as size, location and history go, this villa is probably the most significant on Lake Maggiore. It was built at the end of the 19th Century to celebrate the passionate love between the poet and musician Marquis Silvio della Valle di Casanova and the Irish artist Sophie Browne. The pair chose just this spot for their „Garden of Dreams“. Inspired by the grand Baroque and Art Nouveau Italian villas, they endeavoured to create a harmony between artistic forms and the beauty of nature. Since the sixties, the villa building has been used by the Municipality of Verbania and its interior is therefore not open to the public, However, the park may be visited by groups, if requested. Couples seeking a romantic start to their marriage may have a civil marriage ceremony in the building.

'San Remigio'

The park area which is directly by the lake-side has remained in private possession. Here, on a rocky promontory, is the former private chapel of the villa. It was completely restored a few years ago and converted into a modern residence of great fascination and originality. The garden, which was neglected for decades, has been carefully restored to its former splendour and may be described as the „smaller brother“ of the largest botanical garden in Italy, which is in the neighbouring Villa Taranto. Living here in San Remigio gives one the unique sensation that one can „embrace“ the lake from every window. The approx. 3.600 m² garden at the lake-side is inaccessible from outside the villa grounds, thus garanteeing absolute privacy. You can swim in the lake here, enjoy its view from the glass Finnish sauna and then relax in the whirlpool. Whether while reading in the garden, listening to music by the lake-side, playing the piano or just day-dreaming by the lily-pond, this a paradise in which to relax and excape from daily routine. The villa, with its approx. 300 m² living area, boasts 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and every modern comfort, including a gratis W-LAN connection. The individual floors are connected by a winding staircase. If you should require a cook, we can easily organise this for you. A gardener
tends the park and will also assist you when putting canoes into the water or when starting up the sauna. There are gratis bicycles for shorter excursions. Your car may be parked on one of the 4 parking spaces or in the carport within the closed grounds. Smoking is not permitted. Pets are allowed.

                  Pallanza (approx. 10.000 inhabitants) has Roman origins and was first officially mentioned in the 11th century. Because of its important strategic location it was, like the neighbouring towns Intra and Suna, repeatedly under the control of various ruling families. Since 1939 these three towns form the provincial capital Verbania. At the beginning of the 19th century, tourism in this region developed and gained considerable impetus through the construction of the railway and the Simplon Pass. Many famous personalities came here to enjoy the splendid location in the Gulf of Borromeo, the mild climate and the resulting Mediterranean vegetation. The world-famous music conductor, Arturo Toscanini spent many years living opposite Pallanza, on the small island San Giovanni, which is still privately owned by the Borromeo family. Here he found a refuge which afforded him the strength, peace and inspiration which he needed for his future projects. There is much to discover while walking through the charming historic town-centre with its mediaeval streets, churches, chapels, villas, gardens, arbour pathways, restaurants, bars, and numerous shops, as well as the wonderful lakeside promenade. The beautiful Art Nouveau villas are witnesses to a rich and unique era which no longer exists. One of these villas has become world-famous due to its park – the Villa Taranto on the Punta della Castagnola, Here you can find a park of approx. 20 hectares with more than 20,000 different plants from all over the world. Not only is the botanical variety throughout the year impressive, but also the splendid location between the lake and the mountains. Incidentally, one of the most famous sons of the town, Giovanni Maria Farina attained world-wide fame in Cologne in 1714. Thanks to his fine instinct and good sense of smell, the famous „Eau de Cologne“ was invented, and he described it thus: „My perfume is like a Spring morning in Italy, after a shower of rain: oranges, grapefruit, bergamot, lemons, cedar, lime and the blossoms and herbs of my homeland.“ Napoleon wished to buy the formula for himself and only some devious deception tactics prevented it from falling into his hands! After the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century, many attempts were made by rivals to copy the perfume and the name and because there was still no Trademark Protection Law at the time, „Eau de Cologne“ became synonymous with an entire range of perfumes.
