The lovely outdoors (1000 m²) is the perfect place to relax featuring a green lawn surrounded by fruit trees and flowering plants (azaleas, magnolias, camellias), an outdoor kitchen and barbecue, and a swimming pool with sunloungers and deckchairs. A few steps down from the villa (basement level) there is a dressing room with shower.
This vacation villa overlooks the picturesque harbour of Porto Valtravaglia in the heart of the village: within walking distance from the historic medieval church, a bakery, typical Italian restaurants, and the lakeside promenade and beach. The ferry port is 100 meters away and allows you to explore over water the other villages of the beautiful Lake Maggiore.
Porto Valtravaglia is situated half way between the towns of Luino (8 km), famous for its huge Wednesday’s market and nearby the Swiss frontier, and Laveno (9 km), the charming and centrally located town where you can also drive your car into the ferry to the other side of the lake. Both towns offer railway stations connecting you easily e.g. to the center of Milan. Except the many waterside activities, don’t forget the outdoor possibilities in the nearby mountains (trekking, mountain biking)!
