Our home

Our home is a beautiful 19th century liberty style villa located near the Alps and has gorgeous panoramic view of the mountains and the lakes. It is large and comfortable villa that offers you access to cultural sites, nature, excellent dining places and wineries, sports, and all kinds of outdoor activities. The house is surrounded by a large garden, which includes a small private chapel. We renovated the house but maintained most of the antique charme (wooden floors, marble stairs, high elegantly decorated ceilings, and other details). The house is laid out on three floors, and consists of six spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, two large living rooms, one with a fireplace and a bright kitchen with exit to the garden. Additionally, in the basement we have a large laundry room and a typical wine cellar.

Who we are

  1. We are a Spanish mid-forties couple living in Italy for the last 13 years. Previously we lived in the Netherlands for 2 years and in the States (Berkeley) for 5 years. We have three children: a girl(16) and two boys(14 and 9). My husband is an engineer working for the European Commission Joint Research Centre and I organise cultural events for the commission mainly in Milan. Both of us studied at Berkeley, which is why we're looking forward to returning there in order to visit friends. We've gone back a few times, but we'd like to spend our holidays there.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is located on the hills of Cocquio-Trevisago, away from city noise and surrounded by nature (on the edge of the "Parco Naturale: Campo dei Fiori", which extends up to the city of Varese). It offers the possibility of visiting multiple cultural sites in the area and all the beauty around the northern lakes of Italy. Cocquio-Trevisago is very close to the city of Varese, between Lago Maggiore and Lago di Varese, near the Swiss border (30 minutes). It also offers the possibility of visiting nearby cities such as Milano and Como, and Lugano in Switzerland, all within the range of 1 hour. Cocquio-Trevisago offers train connections to all these cities, including Venice. It is near a large shopping center and many other shops in the town of Gavirate (2 km).
