This comfortable, cozy cottage is located uphill from Meina, a peaceful lakeside town on the western shore of Lake Maggiore. Casa Argento is not on the lakeshore but is located above the lake and the village, and therefore enjoys magical views of the lake and the mountains beyond. The house has a small manicured garden (750 m2) and a panoramic swimming pool. Casa Argento is furnished in modern style, and large windows provide great views of the lake.

There are eight golf courses within 15-40 minutes' drive. Arona (all services and a railroad station) is 4 km south, 10 minutes by car or bus. Switzerland is just half an hour away, and Milan can be reached easily by train. Just 10 km north is the elegant town of Stresa. Stresa calls invitingly to visitors: the Belle Epoch is now covered by patina, and the plaster is crumbing off the walls but to this day Stresa still exudes the elegance of a fin-de-siècle bathing resort.

Day excursions to the Borromean and Brissago Islands, to Riviera Cannero, the romantic Lago di Orta with the San Giulio Island or the botanical gardens at the Villa Taranto are only a few of the many options.
