Villa overview - owner's description
Staying at Villa Campino is a heady experience. An elegant facade, ornamental furnishings and resplendent rooms all make for a sophisticated holiday home. And what more could you possibly want when that holiday is spent right by the breath-taking Lake Maggiore...
Well, maybe being close to the enchanting little lakeside town of Baveno, next to Stresa. Voila! This cute little town, just a short stroll from the villa, features a lovely promenade, shops, restaurants and cafes and is famous for its mineral water springs. And being a stone's throw from Baveno, this sophisticated villa benefits from a superb view of Lake Maggiore's star attraction - the Borromean Islands, which can be reached by boat from the nearby harbour. Enjoying a nightcap from your private terrace as the lights twinkle away on the islands opposite is an unforgettable experience.
From its elegant facade, little stone balconies and terraces - the initial impression is one of grandeur. And it doesn't disappoint once you're inside. Walking into the entrance hallway, you'll be greeted with highly-polished decorated floors, a stained glass window and even a piano!
Step into the dining room and the impressive decor ensues. Chic chairs and period wallpaper in sapphire hues set the tone for a glamorous meal and behind it a lounge area with elegant seating around a grand fireplace. With views of the lake, it's one unique setting. The kitchen is separate, so surprising your guests with a delicious Italian feast is easy to do.
The showstopping interiors do not end there. The traditional living room with inviting chairs and portraits lining the walls is reminiscent of more noble times, and even the glamorous staircase with decorative wallpaper is a beautiful feature. Wind your way up those stairs and you'll find lovely spacious bedrooms - many with access to a terrace - and a characteristic upper-level bedroom with sloped ceilings and wooden beams.
Villa Campino is splendid and an escapist break for anyone. With own sandy beachfront and canoes available to take out, everyone will undoubtedly be happy. And with those delightful terraces for you to make the most of the views, combined with the fact that you're so close to a charming town frequented by many an illustrious guest, we think you're likely to be very happy too...

There's something magical about the lakes of northern Italy bordering Switzerland - the snow-capped mountains, elegant villas, charming villages and narrow glacial lakes, all of which make for a camera-ready scene of eye-popping beauty.
And Lake Maggiore, Italy's second largest lake, is no exception. Sleepy cobblestone villages, exceptional flowers, views over glittering waters, ethereal islands and the odd castle - it's no wonder such illustrious visitors as Byron, Shelley and Hemingway graced its very shores.
When the Simplon Pass train from Switzerland, one of the Alps most beautiful crossings opened, it meant easier access to this beautiful lake. And many visited for all its beauty, including its little islands located on the western arm of this stunning stretch of water: the tiny Isola Bella - a place of decadent parties for the nobility of Europe; Isola dei Pescatori with its population of just 50 people and a number of fabulous fish restaurants; Isola Madre featuring the most beautiful botanical flowers. The Borromean Islands are well worth a visit.
Inland, explore the pretty town of Stresa situated below the majestic peak of Mottarone and enjoy its many cafes, restaurants and bars - especially the ones with views out to the Borromean islands.
Why not take a cable car up Mottarone for a truly spectacular view across the Alps? Amble around the town of Verbania or Cannobio's lakefront piazza with its ancient buildings. Then there's picturesque Maccagno and Luino with its famous market - amongst many more on this enchanting lake that will quite literally take your breath away.
