Located in Laveno on the east side of Lake Maggiore, Carina del Lago is a small, independent cottage for 4 people.  It is part of a larger estate where the beautiful villa Bellezza del Lago is located.  Carina del Lago was formerly the guardian’s house and is located at the entrance of the estate about 60 meters from the villa.  The location is particularly quiet and peaceful given the fact that it is located at the end of a dead end road.  It is 15 minutes by foot from Laveno.

Together, the two properties accommodate up to 14 -16 people and provide a perfect place for a large family or gathering of friends!  Please see Bellezza Grande for a description of the combined property.

Check availability

Guests have their own private area of the garden (approximately 300 square meters) and a pleasant terrace with views over a section of the villa gardens and Lake Maggiore.  These facilities are separate from Bellezza del Lago, which is private to its guests.  Bellezza del Lago has its own park and beach access which are available to guests of Carina del Lago only when the two are rented together.

The public beach is a pebble beach and is approximately 5 minutes away by foot and less than 250 meters away as the crow flies.

Laveno is a small and relaxed tourist town offering a variety of services such as grocery stores, bank, pharmacy, post office, shops, restaurants, and a lakeside promenade.  There is a ferry stop in Laveno and boats go to the western side of the lake (Stresa, Pallanza, Cannero) and also to the Borromean islands famous for their charming beauty.

The Laveno Mombello train station in Laveno is about 1.5 km from Carina del Lago.  From here trains go to the Milano Cadorna train in the center of Milano in less than one hour.  The fast train from Malpensa airport goes to the Milano Cadorna train station so it is possible to fly into Malpensa and take a train to Milan and then the villa.  A handy taxi ride to the house would be necessary with luggage.  Once at the cottage, day trips in the region can be made by taxi, bus or boat. As a result, Carina del Lago can be well suited for those who do not wish to rent a car.

Recently restored and refurbished, Carina del Lago offers a fresh and new interior that is comfortable and entirely modernized.  The kitchen is fully equipped and the 3 x 5 meter terrace provides pleasing views over a part of the gardens and the lake.

The villa also will be stocked with basic groceries so that you do not have to shop upon arrival or worry about store closures on Sunday.  The shopping list consists of: milk, coffee, tea, bread, biscuits, sugar, salt, water, fruit, eggs, oil, butter, jam, orange juice, cereals. The quantity of the items will be adjusted by the staff according to the number of guests.

The access into the main floor of the house is at street level.  Stairs lead outdoors to the garden area.

Two garages and a closed storage room that is reserved for the owner are located on the lower level.

All bedrooms have portable fans.  Air conditioning is not available.
