Villeta Eva is a quaint lakeshore cottage wonderfully positioned right on the shore of Lake Maggiore near the town of Lesa. 

Named after the very friendly owner who speaks excellent English, this semi-detached house has been very tastefully restored and furnished and has its own private dock and beach. The nearest village is Solcio (approximately 500 meters from the house) with an excellent food shop (open Sunday morning), a church and a 3 star restaurant.  Lesa at 1 km offers a variety of services such as a post office, pharmacy, gas station and café and restaurants. 

Check availability

Villeta Eva presents a very private and peaceful setting thanks to its location far away from the busy lake shore road that encircles the lake.  Located in an exclusive residential area in a former palace garden, access to the house is via a private road with entrance gate.  The property with its spacious and manicured garden is on this small lane and there is direct access  to the lake only a few steps from the house. 

Constructed in the shape of an 'L', Villeta Eva has two wings connected by a common courtyard.  One wing is the residence of Eva and the other wing is our guest accommodation.  There is a furnished outdoor area private for guests outside this section of the house.

Tastefully and carefully decorated, Villeta Eva offers a romantic holiday on the shore of the lake.  Linens are changed once per week. 
Includes lake access and private mooring. On approval of the owner, a well behaved dog is welcome for a fee of 60 Euros per week. A child six years or younger may be added as a sixth person.

Several of the rooms in Villeta Eva have direct access to the garden which is very convenient.

Main Level:
Arched French doors lead from outside into a very large sitting room with sofas, billiard table at its center, fireplace and TV. On the right, there's the dining room and a well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher) opening towards the garden where there’s also a covered dining area (gazebo) and a solarium. On the left, there’s the access to the sleeping area developing on main level and loft. Down at the lake (near the dock area) there’s a corner equipped with beach umbrella, table, chairs, deck chairs.
Sleeping Area Main Level:
Single bedroom (200cm x 100cm bed) with adjacent bathroom (small shower, the pink marble bath is just a decor).
Master bedroom suite with 2 single beds (each 195cm x 90cm) that can be joined, and an en-suite full bathroom (large shower). This bedroom is accessed both through the foregoing single bedroom and directly from the outside. The windows of this bedroom are equipped with mosquito nets.
Sleeping Area Loft:
Second main bedroom with a double bed (190cm x 190cm - not divisible). This bedroom overlooks the main-level single bedroom (no doors, just a low balustrade) and has air conditioning. Adjacent, there’s a smaller, simply furnished single bedroom, appropriate only for children with a single bed (190cm x 80cm). Possibility to add a baby bed on request. Please note: The stairs leading to the loft are narrow making it necessary to carefully watch your steps as you go down. No bathroom available at the loft level, therefore it is necessary to use the bathroom downstairs and the night navigation could be not easy. In addition, the loft is not suitable for very tall people as the ceiling is quite low.

Other facilities: kayak, 4 bikes, BBQ, a mooring buoy, window screens in two of the bedrooms and in the kitchen, laundry service on request and charged.

Well manicured lawn stretches down to the lake. There is a nicely furnished patio with umbrella facing the lake.

About Lake Maggiore

Lago Maggiore is a magical glacial lake anchoring the mountains, which step up into the Italian Alps. This is the heart of the 'Lakes District' of Italy, an area with a noted northern influence blending beautifully with all things Italian. 

This is an area devoted to being outdoors on land or water, with plenty of small villages to explore and more than enough stunning scenery to fill a vacation.  There is excellent hiking in the Valle Grande and elsewhere, and equally excellent golfing with two golf courses nearby (fifteen minutes by car) and more than seven within forty minutes' drive. 
Tours in the area include Stresa, the Borromeo Islands, Brissago Islands, Arona, Villa Taranto with its botanical gardens and the Cannero Riviera.  A ten  minute drive gets you to the ferry launches in Belgirate, and romantic Lake Orta with Isola S.Giulio is only a fifteen minute drive.
Five minutes away by car, Stresa lies in a wonderful setting and offers the Grand hotel des Iles Borromées, beauty, fitness and anti-stress programs with the most modern equipment.  Two swimming  pools are available in Stresa, as well as a tennis court, steam bath, sauna and hydro massage.  The city also offers a fabulous variety of restaurants, cafés and shops.

Water sports such as sailing ,windsurfing, water skiing are available in Stresa, Belgirate and Lesa.  

Milan's Malpensa airport is 27 miles away.
