Set in the village of Meina, on the statal road, Nuvoletta is a beautiful appointed accommodation on the water's edge. The rental is a base for virtually any kind of vacation; meditative walks into the mountains, sunny afternoons by the private beach, day trips to the Borromeo islands. Sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing as well as excellent golfing are available in the area. In 1 hour by train, or by car, you can spend your day shopping in the "golden fashion triangle" in Milan. The charming 200 square meters accommodation is surrounded by a wide private garden of 1000 square meters and is situated just on the lake shore. Roses bushes, magnol...ias, azaleas and many other flowers adorn the nice garden where you can sunbath on the large terrace over the small secret harbor. The lake can be easily accessed by the private small beach a few footsteps away.
Furnished with style, the house is spacious and comfortable, an ideal rental for people who wants to be at walking distance from the centre of the village. At the ground floor, there is a cheerful living room with two large windows framing the view of the garden and the lake. The dining room with table for 8 people is immediately adjacent to the living room and to the fully equipped eat-in kitchen. All the rooms are upstairs. At the first floor the master double bedroom is orange and offers a nice view on the lake, while the blue bedroom has 120 cm twin bed that can't be combined.This last bedroom has windows towards the road so could be noisy. The bathroom has tub and separated shower. Climbing up the stairs you arrive at the second floor with the comfortabe pink bedroom with twin bed that can be fitted as one double bed, large windows facing the lake and private shower room.
As with all in-town houses, the sound of people and traffic could be heard. The lake road is located behind the rental, once inside the beautiful garden that ends in the lake you will not feel to be in a noisy place. Only one room (the blue one) having windows towards the road could be noisy
All the bathrooms and bedrooms are upstairs therefore the villa is unsuitable to people with walking difficulties. There is a fish pond in the garden. It is not very large: about a couple of meters of diameter. We think that families with small children have to be informed about this. If you are staying in a resort a general hubbub associated to everyday life could be present and do not forget that in Mediterranean countries, the local people live their lives according to different timetable. In summertime music can be heard even though there are laws to control it.
Lake Maggiore offers a wide choice of things to do and to see. It reaches into three different areas, in fact, with its less mountainous shores in Lombardy, its higher eastern banks in Piedmont, and its northern tip reaching as far as Switzerland. It is a neverending discovery of majestic landscapes, a journey around pleasures, curiosities, uncontaminated environment, to relish unknown oases, cultural itineraries, archaeology, parks and natural reserves. You can visit some of the marvellous villas and their gardens, like Villa Taranto or Villa San Remigio. You can take a boat and spend a whole day discovering the Borromeo Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori. The town of Stresa is also very nice and in front of it stands, just above the water on a rocky cliff the Eremo di Santa Caterina. Arona with its wonderful fortress is also worth a visit and the car free town of Orta S Giulio is a little jewel. Botanists will delight in the fine alpine plant specimens at the Alpinia gardens, and climbing enthusiasts will not want to miss the panoramic view of the lakes and Alps from the summit of Mount Mottarone.
