Description from manager

Set in the pleasant lake shore village of Baveno, an hour's drive from Milan and walking distance to shops and the main boulevard along Baveno’s lake promenade, Romanza was built in the 17th century on an ancient monastery and features a unique 17th century Andalusian patio.

The villa is surrounded by a spacious terraced garden with private parking facilities. Descending the garden path, guests can reach the swimming pool (16 x 4 x 1.40 meters), overlooking the lake. The pool is not fenced and there's and external shower near the pool.

This is a perfect holiday rental for family and friends. All living areas are furnished with a mix of modern design and antiques that have belonged to the owner's family for hundreds of years. There are spacious rooms with high ceilings and the large panoramic windows offer comfortable living.
