When Bellezza del Lago and Carina del Lago are rented together, this villa offers our special “arrive and relax” package: 

A simple typical dinner is provided on your arrival night.  This is a welcome sight after a long flight and will allow you to check in, unpack and relax.  You will find the dinner in the kitchen with the instructions for heating.  The dinner is also suitable for vegetarian guests.  It basically consists of a pasta al forno, a vegetable tarte, salad, and fruit.  Bread, water and wine are included.  No changes are possible for the first dinner.

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 villa estate is located directly on the waterfront near Laveno, a lively town on the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore.

The property has direct access to the water through its private lake shore of 150 meters.  (Please note that Italian law allows for private beaches to be accessed by other boats from the lake).

The location of Bellezza Grande is particularly quiet and peaceful given the fact that it is located at the end of a dead end road.  It is approximately 15 minutes by foot from Laveno.

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 Bellezza 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 to the villa.  A handy taxi ride to the villa would be necessary with luggage.  Once at the villa, day trips in the region can be made by taxi, bus or boat.  As a result, Bellezza Grande can be well suited for those who do not wish to rent a car.
