Overlooking Lake Maggiore and the Castle of Angera, Colle Belvedere is a modern villa offering a comfortable environment and wonderful  views of Lake Maggiore.  The villa is located in a residential area just outside of Lesa and within 4 km of Stresa and Arona.

The villa is surrounded by a beautifully manicured and fenced garden which helps to provide full privacy to guests.  The road leading to the villa is in good condition, although it is steep with some curves.  However, once you arrive you will see that the exquisite view was worth the effort.

Colle Belvedere offers an excellent arrangement for a family or group of friends.   It spans two floors with three bedrooms and three en suite bathrooms.

Ground floor: The entrance leads into a spacious living room with a fireplace, Satellite TV, and large French doors, which open onto the lovely panoramic terrace.  The terrace is nicely furnished and is ideal for relaxed summer dining.  This level also contains a separate dining room with a table for eight and a small, well-equipped kitchen.  There is a WC as well.

Upper floor: The master bedroom with a double bed is both large and colorful, offering a pleasant view of Lake Maggiore, an en suite bathroom (half tub with shower) and access to the terrace. On this floor there are also two twin-bedded rooms, each with its own small private bathroom (each has half tub with shower).  The twin beds are each 80 cm wide and can be joined to form a double bed.

Colle Belvedere has been restored with care, and finished in a pleasant and comfortable fashion with ornamental detail and fine upholstery.  The walls framing the panoramic windows are brightly colored and the overall feeling is cheerful.  The furnishings are a blend of contemporary pieces mixed with some antiques.  Each bedroom has direct access to the upper terrace and its own small private bathroom.  Please note that the showers are combined with the half tubs, for this reason are not highly recommended for elderly guests.  Amenities include a refrigerator, telephone, TV, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker and microwave.

WiFi Internet is now available!

Both terraces enjoy the remarkable views of the lake and a variety of outdoor seating areas. The owner who speaks both French and English can assist you by phone in case of emergency. 

Please note that the local train passes 250 meters downhill from the property but is separated by other properties, trees, and shrubbery.

In the surrounding area there is plenty to see and do.  You will not want to miss a tour of the three Borromean islands.  Isola Bella, the largest, is almost entirely occupied by a villa built by Carlo III Borromeo in honour of his wife Isabella.  Isola dei Pescatori is home to an ancient fishing village with tiny narrow streets and some excellent restaurants. The third island is Isola Madre, which boasts another Borromean palace and noteworthy botanical gardens.  Colle Belvedere is an excellent base for exploring the region.  Beautiful mountains, tiny lakeshore villages, markets, spas, and even nearby Switzerland are all within close distance from the villa.  The beach is only about 2km from the villa.

Stresa is 4 km north while Arona lies 4 km to the south.  It is possible to reach Milan in about an hour by train and the Malpensa international airport is not much more than a 50-minute drive.  There are many shops and restaurants in Lesa, which is located about 1500 meters downhill from the villa.  It is also possible to order take-out meals from the nearby Rapanello Restaurant in Lesa.  Lesa has a sport club with 3 tennis courts and an Olympic-sized pool.  There are also 2 golf courses within 10-15 minutes by car and 7 more within 45 minutes. The ferry and the railroad station are located in Stresa.
