Stresa villa description

This spectacular lake-front property is located in Stresa, Lake Maggiore, just 45 minutes away from Malpensa Airport, in the opposite direction of Milan. This large, four floor, 8 bedroom villa was built in 1903 by the Ricordi Family. Originally named Villa Glicine, it is now known by the locals as Villa Ricordi. Ideal also for small group meetings and family reunions.
The piano terra, ground floor, has a garage with covered parking for three cars, storage space and a cantina. The first floor, has a fully-equipped eat-in kitchen, living room with fireplace and piano, an organ, an antique billiard room with a sound system, television room and powder room. There is also a large terrace with a spectacular view that has a stone table that seats 12, which we use for our main meals. The second floor, has two master bedrooms with baths that have beautiful lake views, a childrens bedroom with bunk beds and a single bed, two bedrooms with queen-sized beds and a shared bath.

outside: The most valued feature of this property is the fabulous view of the three islands (Isole Borromeo) and surrounding mountains. The foothills of the Alps with the high peaks in the background complete the breathtaking vista that is gorgeous by day and also very romantic at sunset and during the night.

                      To the tourist, who for the first time arrives in Stresa, is offered a breathless sight. At the beginning a superb window of the lake front, delineated with lines of palm trees, with flourishing gardens and facades of majestic hotels. Then, turning to look at the lake, enchanted, as if emerged from the same waters the spectacular Borromean Islands (Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori). It is enough the splendour of these visions to make one understand how Stresa has been able to become one of the maximum meetings of international tourism. The town, already at the middle half of the 19th century was the most elegant place to stay, the most visited by the international upper middle class.
