Charming Villa in Meina on Lake Maggiore - Villa Salice
Description from the manager
Located right on the lake and in the village of Meina, this charming house is ideal for a family or friends who want to experience Lake Maggiore. You can enjoy your morning coffee with the sunrise on the lake, as well as an aperitivo with sunset. There is even a pizzeria located just behind the villa!
(1000 m2) This Lake Maggiore villa enjoys a fantastic lakefront position with its own terrace over the water and a small private beach! A wisteria-covered outdoor dining area offers a lovely, peaceful place to have lunch or dinner, while the private garden has a selection of rose bushes, magnolias, azaleas, and many other flowers. Please note that while the gardens are peaceful and private, the back of the house faces the lake road. You should expect some normal traffic noise and the sounds of people in town. There is parking for one or two small cars.
Ground Floor: A comfortable, cheerful living room welcomes you with two large windows framing the view of the garden and the lake. An adjacent dining room has seating for eight people, while the eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, oven, dishwasher, and washing machine.
First Floor: Upstairs you will find two bedrooms. The spacious orange room has a 180 cm king-size bed and beautiful lake views. The blue bedroom contains two 120 cm single beds. This bedroom has windows over the road, so it will experience traffic noise. The two rooms share one bathroom with a sink, toilet, bathtub, and separate shower.
Second Floor: Here a pink bedroom contains two twin-beds (can be combined upon request) with large windows facing the lake. It has a bathroom with a toilet, sink, and shower. All bedrooms in the house have fans.

Wonderful. The location on the lake was outstanding. We enjoyed having morning coffee on the lake and taking sunrise pictures. The view was incredible. The house was comfortable and had all the conveniences. It would have been helpful to have written instructions on how to operate the washing machine. The location was convenient to Stresa via bus.
The location and size.
Road noise was a bit of a problem. The couple who had the roadside room took sleeping tablets since the noise was constant but unavoidable. I would recommend that people have ear plugs until they are used to the noise.
Stresa and the islands were beautiful. Even my husband who I did not think was a museum-goer enjoyed the castles.

Loved it-loved it-loved it!
Being able to swim and fish; being able to walk to the excellent alimentari to purchase food to prepare for dinner or even a pre-made dinner roasted chicken, interesting vegetable medleys; great central location to other points of interest; you could easily walk to a dinner location across the street or down the street; the pizzeria across the street is actually a hotel with a good restaurant.
Some street noise, but you stop hearing it after a while.
The area is gorgeous - close to Stressa, a crazy drive to Bellagio, and don't EVER forget Lake Orta!
