The Home

This 18th century Italian Lakes 2 bedroom apartment takes inspiration from the years the owner spent living in India, South America and the Middle East. It is a newly renovated oasis of calm on the oldest street in Lesa, Lake Maggiore. Everything has been installed recently and inside you’ll find fresh, white linens and a designer Italian kitchen waiting for you.
During your stay in this Italian Lakes 2 bedroom apartment you will share the street with a 17th century folly, the town hall and a romantic botega. The fresco of the virgin on the main facade is thought to be a later addition and dates from the late 18th century. It is believed to be the handy work of a local artist famed for his sacred art and other similar examples can be found in the churches of Lesa, Meina and Stresa.

This Italian Lakes 2 bedroom apartment boasts two balconies. There’s a balcony on the front for breakfast and another at the back where you...

The Neighborhood

There is no bad time to visit this area! In the Summer months, there are many ways to enjoy the lake, not least the 3 beaches you will find in Lesa itself. Since 2017, Lesa has had a lovely new sandy beach which you can find on online maps called Erno Beach as well two closer public beaches at the end of Via Giuseppe Ferrari and Via Castello. Other attractions in the area include Armani, Lora Piano, Alessi and Belora factory shops. There are around 30 golf courses around the lake, many of them situated in breathtaking mountain locations with very reasonable green fees. Ziplines, summer toboggans, boats of every conceivable kind and world class summer festivals from classical music in quarries to jazz in palace gardens are all on offer to visitors. In the Winter, there's local skiing on the hill behind Lesa itself and the world class pistes of Switzerland can be reached in under an hour. Local skiing is easy to access and there are many slopes to choose from! The closest is Mottarone which is about 30 minutes from the apartment and has a nice selection of slopes for a few couple of days skiing. It's the perfect place to learn or get back on the slopes after a break. There are various other ski stations up the lake towards Switzerland e.g. Macugnaga, Dormbianca and San Domenico Ski. Further afield, if you start the day early, the Swiss slopes are at hand with Zermatt reachable in just over 2 hours. On the way back, we highly recommend stopping off at the newly renovated thermal spas. Further afield you'll find Portofino, the Via Ferata of the Dolomites and even Monaco, Venice and the French Riviera all within a 3.5 hour drive or less. Alternatively, if you're looking for a more relaxed pace on holiday, why not tour the wine trail taking in Ghemme Gattinara in Romagnano Sesia and the famous red of Barolo with its stunning castle. With many foods in season, Autumn is one of the best times to visit the various Michelin starred restaurants or go truffle hunting! There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance including the popular Il Rapanelo fish restaurant as well as a delightful local deli which we can highly recommend and much more besides, all with stunning views over the lake. Or, if you're looking for a more spiritual getaway Unesco have listed many religious sites: visit Sacro Monte di Varallo or the Santuario di Varese.
