Set in the pleasant lake shore village of Baveno, located 500 meters uphill the centre of Baveno, the villa is in walking distance to shops, restaurants and the main boulevard along Baveno's lake promenade. Also the Baveno ferry berth is in walking distance (750 m). The lovely resort town Stresa is just 5 km south and Milan can be reached in just an hour's drive. The villa was built in the 17th century on an ancient monastery and features a unique 17th century Andalusian patio. The villa is surrounded by a spacious terraced garden. Descending the garden path guests can reach the swimming pool overlooking the lake. The pool is not fenced and there is an external shower near the pool. The property features the Main Villa (sleeps 12 people), a guesthouse (sleeps 4 people) and the magnificent garden. All living areas are furnished with a mix of modern design and antiques that have belonged to the owner's family for hundreds of years. Spacious rooms with high ceilings and large panoramic windows offer comfortable living. A total of 16 people can be accommodated (8 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms). If your group is smaller you can benefit from the advantage of a price reduction for groups up to 12 people (in this case the guesthouse will not be available). The beautiful garden (1.5 hectare) was designed in the twenties by Maurice Blondel (1861 - 1949) - a Catholic positivist French thinker, author of the 'Philosophy of Action' who bought the villa after the First World War and created a unique piece of art. It is fully fenced and rich of wonderful centuries old plants. This very special garden features three distinct styles, each characterized with different flora and vegetation: the formal Italian box garden, the English rose garden and the Japanese water garden. All around are peonies, azelias, cammelias and valuable trees, including Japanese maples, cedars, chestnuts and a spectacular canphora tree. Thanks to the owner 's restoration the enchantment of Blondel's garden has been preserved. Please note: this property is not suitable for people with walking difficulties. The local train passes 250 meters from the property (downhill and separated by other properties, trees and bushes). Resident staff: One staff member lives at the property and works 8 hours a day. He prepares breakfast every day. He lives on the top floor of the property in a separated unit with independent entrance.
