Our home

Our home is an Italian villa of Liberty style built in 1902. It is located in Lombardy, the lake region of Northern Italy, between Lake Maggiore and Lake Varese, and overlooks the Alps. It is a large and spacious house with a beautiful garden, which includes a small tool house and a little chapel. Although large, our home is very comfortable and offers all the modern facilities. We renovated the house in 2005, maintaining all the original charm; some of the nice features in our home are the depicted ceilings of the ground and first floors, the wooden floors, or the Carrara marble fire place and stairs. The house is divided in three floors, each of them with three large rooms and a bathroom. Additionally it includes a "cantina" in the basement, with the laundry room and the wine cellar. Kitchen, dining and living rooms are on the ground floor; first floor has a studio and two bedrooms, while the upper floor has three additional bedrooms. The beautiful garden and front porch are perfect for having a BBQ and enjoying a drink.

Your neighbourhood

Cocquio-Trevisago is located near the city of Varese (only 10 min. away by car), and the border with Switzerland, and less than one hour from cities like Milan, Como, or Lugano (in Switzerland).

We are just next to many of the large lakes in Italy (Maggiore, Como, Varese), where you can do all can of activities like visiting the Borromeo Isles in Lago Maggiore or navigating to towns around the lake like to Intra, Stresa (in Italy) or Locarno and Bellinzona (in Switzerland).

It is close to a railway station, which allows you reaching cities like Florence, Venice or Rome to enjoy the huge Italian cultural heritage. The location is ideal if you wish to extend your journey and visit other extraordinary italian cities. In a sub-urban area, our home is a hundred meters from the "Campo de Fiori" (Field of Flowers) of 5400 ha of nature.Surrounded by the lake district and the Alps,the area offers excellent cycling and hiking routes too.
