Lesa villa description

Villa Brinada is the perfect place to relax in harmony and luxury and enjoy the attractions of the Lake District. Located half-way between Arona and Stresa, the estate is part of a gated community that is far from the bustle of the lakeshore road. It is an excellently designed and furnished villa with its private landing stage, manicured lawns, a private pool, a tennis court, and a view that only a few houses have to offer.

This accommodation is unique because it is situated far from the hubbub of the roads. As you may know, the lakes of Upper Italy are usually encircled by a lake-shore road. This house, however, is far away from the busy roads. Here you have direct access to the lake, only a few steps away from the house.

Newly restored, Villa Brinada is a spacious house built on a single level, so it is suitable even for guests with walking difficulties. There are four bedrooms with four bathrooms, spacious living areas, and a bit of additional living space upstairs in a mansard. An additional guesthouse for two more people is available at extra charge. Interiors offer traditional Italian elegance with a modern twist. The end result is chic, calm and comfortable.

The villa provides several facilities: air-conditioning, pool, private dock and golf driving range. Guests can also use bikes, canoes and the sailing dinghy boat offered by the owner. On request it is possible to book an excursion with the owner`s helicopter or a cruise with the owner`s 15 m vintage sailing boat and the 12 m vintage wooden motorboat.

The villa is surrounded by 20 acres of lush gardens planted with native flowers, fruit trees and aromatic herbs. (Please see `More Pictures`on the top, left: the last picture shows the entire property, the red line indicates the extension). The friendly, English-speaking owners lives in another house in the same property, about 50 metres from Villa Brinada. They are eager to offer you the finest services while respecting your privacy and not intruding.

Proximity to the village also ensures that all essential amenities are close at hand, at a ten minutes walk, including restaurants, cafés, a supermarket, pâtisserie, post office, bank, hairdressers, bus stop.

Ground floor:
Spacious living room with fireplace
Dining room; opens to shaded pergola for outdoor dining
Superb kitchen
4 double bedrooms (king beds); en suite bathrooms with shower
Laundry with washer and dryer
Fitness room

Additional open space

An additional independent guesthouse with 2 beds, kitchen and bathroom is available on special request. It can be rented only together with Villa Brinada. 8 people sleep in Villa Brinada. The guesthouse for 2 extra guests is available at extra charge.

This accommodation is an excellent starting point for excursions in Northern Italy. The villa is approx. 600 meters from the village and sits almost equidistant (4 km) between Arona and Stresa, the two main touristic Lake Maggiore resorts. The nearby town of Stresa calls invitingly to visitors: the Belle Epoch is now covered by patina, and the plaster is crumbing off the walls but to this day Stresa still exudes the elegance of a fin-de-siècle bathing resort. In the 19th century, the little town on the west shore of the lake was one of Italy's noblest spas.

You can go summer-skiing in Switzerland (90 minutes north). The popular Swiss towns of Bellinzona and Locarno on the northern shore of the lake can easily be reached by speed-boat (90 minutes). Ferry boats go regularly from Belgirate and Stresa to the three picturesque Borromean islands: Isola Madre, Isola Bella, and Isola dei Pescatori.

The surrounding offers an impressive range of cultural and sporting activities. The region is a paradise for walkers and cyclists. In the nearby town of Lesa there is a modern sporting club with four tennis courts, a sauna, steam bath, fitness centre, two outdoor pools (one for adults, the other for children) with large lawns, as well as a bar with restaurant.

In the vicinity there are facilities for horseback riding, in addition to two panoramic golf courses only 30 minutes away from the house. The nearest village is Solcio (approx. 500 m far) with a very good alimentary shop, a church and a 3 star restaurant - while in Lesa, the main village (approx. 1 km), you can find a pharmacy, post office, 3 restaurants, a petrol station, a coffe shop and a little harbour. 5 km from the villa, there is the boat club of Stresa, where you can lend a boat (sailing boat, motor boat) and do water skiing.

Many fabulous restaurants are located in the area, as well as cafés and shops. In Stresa (5 minutes driving), located in a wonderful setting, the Grand hotel des Iles Borromées offers beauty, fitness and antistress programs featuring all the most modern equipments. Milan's Malpensa airport is 27 miles away and is reachable by shuttle. Milano is at 1 hour drive by motorway, it is reachable also by train from Arona.
