  • Villa Mariuccia is located uphill from Lesa, in the little village of Massino Visconti. Dating from the 15th century, the villa is related to the nearby Visconti castle. The owners have restored the villa with great care, maintaining many of its original features. The property faces the lake and the location is peaceful and quiet, even though it is just a few meters from the shops, cafés and restaurants in the village. The large shared swimming pool offers panoramic views over the lake.
  • All of the units have their own independent entrance from the patio. An additional apartment on the ground floor is used by the owner and her family, who often come on weekends and during the week in August, and they share the pool with the guests.
  • The villa can be rented as separate apartments, or it can be joined and rented comfortably by one larger group. There is space to cook and dine together, and it is possible to pay a supplement to have exclusive use of the pool.
  • A sports club in nearby Lesa (4 km downhill), with tennis courts and an Olympic-sized pool, can be used by guests for a daily or weekly fee. The beach is just four kilometers from the villa, and there are two golf courses within ten minutes’ drive (plus seven more within an hour). The ferry to the other resort towns and islands docks at Belgirate, a ten minute drive. The highway entrance is just four kilometers from the villa.
  • From the parking area there are about 15 steps to reach the garden. Please note that all of the bedrooms and bathrooms are located upstairs; therefore, this property is not suitable for guests with walking problems.

Lombardia and The Lakes

Lombardia is located at the very north of Italy and borders with Switzerland and the Alps. Home to the industrial capital city of Milan which is perhaps the biggest centre in the world for fashion with names like Armani, Prada, and Gucci all residing in Milans ‘Golden Quad’.  The local people of Milan take great pride in the way they dress and it can often seem they are all on a catwalk as they quickly march through the streets.

Milan is also the finance powerhouse of the country, and is not driven by tourism. The city itself is fast passed, and a great place to visit if you are a serious shopper.

The main attractions in Milan include Il Duomo di Milano, Leonardo Da Vincis last supper, La Scala opera house, and the Castello Sforzesco.
