Casa Lavender

Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Stresa, Lake Maggiore, Piedmont
Our house is situated on the edge of the tiny village of Someraro, known locally as the roof of Lake Maggiore. We are just a couple of kilometres above Stresa, half-way between Milan and Switzerland, one of the most accessible areas of Italy, just 10 minutes from the motorway connecting Switzerland with the Mediterranean and 45 minutes from Italy's second international airport: Malpensa.

It is no exaggeration to say that the views from the house and garden, offering an almost 180 degree unobstructed panorama over the magnificent Lago Maggiore, extending to Switzerland and the Alps, are sublime and surely amongst the most dramatic and beautiful in the world.

Our house makes the ideal base for a relaxing holiday as it very close to Stresa (5 minutes by car) yet away from the hustle and bustle, the perfect place to return to after a...

Simon's home is really charming. Lovely features, amazing view and a nice quiet village location. I stayed with my family and my 1 year old loved the hammock and trampoline! The only thing I'd caution is that because the house is set into the hill...More

About the neighbourhood
You will need at least a week to do justice to the area's infinite charms: island villages and palaces, island castles, beaches, cliff-hugging monasteries, lemon trees and glaciers, first world war trenches and fortifications, vineyards, ski-slopes, mountain trails, cheese producers and water parks. The list of must-see sites is endless and suitable for young and old alike.

As the property owners are real experts on the area and its attractions, please do not hesitate to ask us for suggestions as to what to see, maybe something relating to a particular interest. We would be delighted to help. There are a wealth of activities to be enjoyed throughout the year, ranging from historic housese and gardens to ski-slopes and water-based sports. The most famous attractions are the three beau...

How to get there
Airport: Malpensa: 40.0 km
Railway: Stresa: 3.0 km
Ferry: Stresa: 3.0 km
The Lago Maggiore area is very easy to get to by plane, train, car or even boat. It is just 45 minutes by car from Italy's second most important airport: Malpensa and 5 minutes by taxi or car from Stresa, an important train station with fast connections to Milan and Switzerland. A major plus is that it can easily be reached from Northern Europe in one day, saving you a day on arrival and a day on departure compared to locations in Central or Southern Italy. The motorway connecting the area and Switzerland is toll-free. Much of the centre of Someraro is car-free and so most houses in the village do not provide parking. Casa Lavander is no exception. This means holiday-makers need to find parking space in the village. This is perfectly safe. Usually it is not necessary to walk more tha... more
