Villa Lavinia is a beautiful holiday rental located near the lively town of Laveno. Just a 10 minute walk away from where you catch the ferry.
It sleeps up to 12 people in 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. The property offers great views over the lake!
The villa has direct access to the water, a private beach and a panoramic swimming pool. On the same estate there is also another property for 4 people called Lavinia Dependance.
The two properties together sleep up to 14! A perfect spot for a large family!
The estate consisting of a Villa with a large swimming pool, is situated directly on the waterfront of Laveno, a lively town on the Eastern shore of Lake Maggiore. The property has direct access to the water through its 150 meters of private beach. (Please note that for the Italian Law private beaches can be accessed also by other boats from the lake). The estate is situated within the perimeters of the coastal road, and at the end of a dead-end lane. The location is at the edge of Laveno, in a very quiet spot with beautiful views and only a 15 minute walk from the centre of Laveno. Our charming villa is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday, or for several interesting and recommended daytrips.
On the same property there is also a Dépendance, Lavinia Dépendance that can be rented separately: see our website for more details. Guests renting the Dépendance are not allowed to use the pool and do not have access to the beach and to the main part of garden unless the whole estate is rented by the same group of people.
Laveno is a small and relaxed tourist town with most shopping facilities, many restaurants, and where all year round lot's of activities are organised. From here it is possible to catch the ferry boat to the Western side of the lake (Stresa, Pallanza etc…) and to the Borromeo Islands which are famous for their enchanted beauty.
Here you will also find many shops, including supermarkets, banks, post office etc
From Laveno it is possible to catch the train to Varese and Milano in less than an hour.
Angera with its Borromeo Castle is a 30 minute drive away, and so is the romantic Sanctuary of Santa Caterina del Sasso.

All sorts of water sports are possible and also within walking distance is the gondola which takes you to the top of the hill against which Laveno is built. It is a very popular location for Parapente and Delta flying. Cycling is of course possible and there is a riding school in a village nearby.
Villa Lavinia, built in 1930 for a well known Italian family, is spacious and full of atmosphere. The interiors are Italian Classic style with marble tables and decorated wall papers. Most of the furniture is designed and handmade for the Villa.
Most rooms overlook the lake and on the ground floor the rooms have direct access to the terraces and gardens.
Villa Lavinia has a beautiful garden with old trees and grass lawn. From the garden a path (about 150 steps of stone) leads down to the lake and the rocky beach. The whole park measures 22000 sq.meters. Note that it is a fairly steep path on which persons with walking difficulties or elderly people will have difficulty to descend and ascend.
