Casa Riccio is situated in a panoramic position in the Piedmont region, on Lake Maggiore's western shore.  It is a detached modern house with extraordinary views over the lake and the castle of Angera.

The area, blessed by a mild climate and an amazing landscape, has plenty to offer: summer festivals, fine restaurants, romantic strolls by the lake, quaint little villages and castles waiting to be explored.

Completely independent and built on two levels, the villa is surrounded by its own private terraced garden (about 1000 sqm). Each terrace is connected by external stone steps, and for this reason the property is not suitable for small children or people with walking difficulties.
