Just a short walk from village shops and restaurants, Villa Montanelli is an elegant, air-conditioned lakefront villa with heated pool enjoying magnificent views over Lake Maggiore and the Borromean islands, with Stresa just three miles away. Built in the 1940s as a holiday home by a wealthy Milanese family, this substantial three-story luxury villa features light and spacious interiors in which classic bespoke Italian furniture and soft furnishings create a reined and sophisticated atmosphere.

This property is also provided with all modern comforts such as air conditioning, pool heating and a fully equipped fitness & wellbeing area encompassing a gym, Jacuzzi tub, Hammam, relaxation area and herbal tea room. Surrounded by manicured terraced gardens overlooking the splendid Borromean Gulf and set against the striking backdrop of the soaring pre-Alpine peaks, the property offers the quintessential lake retreat to relax and recharge those flagging batteries.

Ground floor

The living area is sited on the ground floor and it is entirely paved in polished roman travertine. The core of the floor is the big hall, facing its own private garden which is furnished with an outside living room covered by an elegant white voile, and facing a wide veranda with drapes and a view of the lake, furnished with a wrought iron living room. The guests can relax on the white leather Chesterfield sofas that surround the Alps-green marble fireplace, they can enjoy one of the many liquors that are contained inside an elegant black leather vintage cocktail cabinet, they can engage in a chess game over the old card table, or maybe lay down to watch some TV on the adjacent living room. The hall is embellished with an old Austrian grand piano, completely renovated and functioning.

From the hall it is possible to enter, through a corridor, in a kitchen made of stainless steel equipped with professional tools, and also with a wide window overlooking the park. Proceeding through the corridor we reach an elegant ante-room and then a small bathroom with shower. Finally, we can find the relax room, with TV and sofa, that, if necessary, becomes the sixth bedroom with sofa double bed. This room overlooks the arbor with transparent glass roof, equipped with table and barbeque grill, where it is possible to grill meat or fish, having lunch next to the swimming pool and enjoying the view over the Lake.

The arbor is linked to a small balcony belonging to the dining room, also accessible from the entrance hall. It overlooks the Lake and it is furnished with precious cherry wood furnishes, an elegant table and chandeliers in Murano glass.

First floor

The sleeping area is located on the upper floor of the Villa which is accessible by a majestic wooden staircase, completely restored and enhanced during the renovation. The floor is paved with solid oak wood, and it’s equipped with modern heating and air conditioning. There are five rooms, all furnished keeping high standards of quality and comfort: every room is equipped with elegant curtains, built-in wardrobe, refined upholstered bed and Television, other than a private marble bathroom with shower.

Upon request, a sixth bedroom can be available on the living floor, converting the TV relax room in a sofa double bedroom and using the adjacent bathroom (with shower and wardrobe) of the living area.

Lower floor (Relax and wellness area)

The wellness area occupies all the basement floor and it is accessible directly from the garden, through four big French windows, or from the travertine stairwell descending from the living area, embellished by numerous watercolors depicting glimpses of Lake Maggiore’s landscapes.

Guests can relax inside the jacuzzi or the Turkish bath and they can work out with professional gym equipment, then rest over comfortable relax beds or sip herbal tea prepared in the herbal tea corner. The fitness area is equipped with its own private bathroom with shower and with the laundry room, equipped with washing machine, dryer and electric iron.

Just next to the wellness area a multifunction space has been designed with walls of natural stone, TV, several sofas, armchairs and an impressive refectory table, previously belonged to the former owners of the Villa (from this room a beautiful view of the lake is guaranteed with direct access to the garden, through three big French windows made of glass).
