Villetta Bruna is a beautiful, large accommodation with its own stunning gardens and a shared pool.  It is located on the hillside just above the village of Meina on the southern shores of the enchanting Lake Maggiore.  Situated in a very sought-after location between Stresa and Arona, Villetta Bruna offers magnificent views of the charming region.  The villa is only five minutes away from the town of Arona and is easily accessible by road, train or air.  A car is necessary for transportation to and from the villa.  There are three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.  The house can accommodate up to 6 adults and 1 child older than 11 years old.

Your apartment is accessed via your own front door and has a spacious living/dining room with direct access to the gardens (1000 sqm) and large terrace. You will also find a beautifully designed and well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. There are three large bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 twin) equipped with satellite TV and three large bathrooms, 2 of which are en-suite.  The villa offers a central internet access point for those who want to keep in touch with home or business. All rooms have large windows with lake views. Villetta Bruna has been lovingly decorated with a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture.  The son of the owner lives on the lower level of the villa during the weekend.

Check availability

Villetta Bruna, which has been excellently constructed, lies on a large plot of land (17,000 sqm) that has been divided between the owner’s house and the villa’s property.  The two properties share a pool and their separate gardens are joined by a gate.  The friendly, English-speaking owner will do everything possible to help you enjoy your stay, while still providing you privacy.  In 2010, the pool will be open from May 8 until September 25. Pool towels are not included.

This spacious and bright ground floor apartment (175 sqm) faces the lake and provides generous accommodation for six people, with private bedrooms and bathrooms.  There is direct access to the gardens and a large terrace/patio, which is ideal for shady lunches and romantic dinners.  The terrace also has gorgeous views of Lake Maggiore.

The access to the property is via a tarred road and remote controlled gates. There is a garage as well as outdoor, on-property parking. The villa has only two floors - the ground floor where your apartment is located, and a lower ground floor with a small apartment with its own access (the son of the owner lives in this apartment).

The swimming pool, also with a lake view, is situated 100m from the villa and has lounging areas with sun beds, parasols and a BBQ.  The gardens are well tended with lawns and flowers as well as trees. There is a natural forest just next to the property, which is excellent for short walks.

The location is peaceful and private, yet also convenient. In Meina, which is located 800 meters downhill, you can find shops, grocery stores and restaurants.  It is also possible to order delicious take-out meals from local restaurants.  In only a five minute drive you will find yourself at the ferry to other lakeshore villages on Lake Maggiore, as well as beaches and sports clubs with tennis courts and swimming pools. Two golf courses are within 10-15 minutes drive, with several others less than an hour away. Just 10 km north is the town of Stresa, and Arona is about 4 km to the south of the villa.  A visit to Switzerland is always a possibility, as it is just half an hour away.

Please note: The owners have a friendly dog (German Shepherd) who will also be living on the property, because of this, young children (1 – 11 years) are not permitted at this property.  Bed linens are changed once a week and bath linens are changed twice a week.  There is a washing machine available in the house.

a) You can only make local calls as well as any necessary emergency calls with these telephones; telephone costs for incoming and local outgoing calls are included in the rent.
b) You can receive long-distance or international calls but you cannot make any yourself.
c) If you want to connect your computer to the Internet, it is possible to go online with a User ID and password given to you by the house owner at your request.
