Dating from the 17th century, the villa retains evocative original features such as wooden flooring, large fireplaces, coffered and frescoed ceilings and a romantic covered walkway. The owners renovated the property in 2012, and have created a tasteful and luxurious blend of ancient and modern features, including a stunning heated indoor pool with small spa and Turkish bath.
There is a special atmosphere in this area that you cannot fail to notice. The villa itself is located in the heart of Vacciago, an unspoilt village overlooking the lake. The house is attached on one side to the village church with a bell which chimes during the day - not too loudly! The church is open to visitors but no longer used for services. On the other side of the house, within a few metres is a small local shop where you will find all the essentials, and you will find plenty of restaurants and more shops at nearby Orta San Giulio. Considered to be one of Italy’s most beautiful villages, it stands on the slopes of Sacro Monte, a steep, sacred hill that juts out into the lake offering a spectacular view from the top. You can also take a boat out to the island in the middle of the lake: home to an ancient monastery which you can visit, you can stroll around the island and enjoy a meal in the restaurant here. There are lake beaches at Orta San Giulio and elsewhere around the lake, and plenty of opportunities for sports and day trips in the surrounding area.
