Found in a spectacular location on the Lake Maggiore, Villa Ghis offers to its guests stunning views, an extraordinary garden and charming accommodation.
The construction of this majestic property took place in the 17th Century. The villa acquired by the French Philosopher Maurice Blondel - a botanical enthusiast - in 1920. In the park, there are four gardens (Italian, English, Japanese and French) and an infinite variety of plants. The owners preserve this incredible garden with a strong respect to its evolution and making sure to keep intact its beauty. The garden has been published on several garden and interior magazines.
The comfortable 3-floor villa sleeps up to 12 people and it has been recently restored by the owners. The house is incredibly bright and it has been tastefully furnished mixing old pieces of furniture with modern ones. Alfresco dining can be enjoyed both in the outside dining area in front of the villa as well as in the attractive internal central loggia.
