Eva's Cottage 6 to 5

A private lakeside cottage on Lake Maggiore, Italy

Nice little touches

  • Having the lake on your doorstep is a real treat

Enjoying a beautiful lakeside position, this cottage offers private access to Lake Maggiore via a spacious, well tended garden that leads to a private mooring. The house is a charming L-shaped villa with two wings connected by a common courtyard. While the friendly owner lives in one wing, the other is available for rental, and the layout of the house ensures that both peace and privacy are guaranteed.


The house has a remarkable sitting room with a pool table, a fireplace and large arched French doors leading to the garden. A dining area is connected to an eat-in kitchen which also has direct access to the garden. The bedrooms are arranged in an unusual fashion, with a double bedroom also featuring independent access to the garden and an ensuite shower-room. To reach the rest of the house from this bedroom one must pass through a single bedroom, itself adjacent to a bathroom with an old fashioned marble tub as well as a separate stall shower. Overlooking the single bedroom from a loft level is the air-conditioned master bedroom. On this upper level there is also a second, smaller single bedroom appropriate for a child under 10. Tastefully and carefully decorated, the house offers a romantic lakeside holiday.

Around Eva's Cottage

This cottage is in an excellent position for those who like to move as well as meditate, for not only are lake swimming and water sports steps away, but tennis courts and golf courses are all within 15 min.

The towns around Lake Maggiore offer spectacular gardens and historic villas to visit and the mountains beyond the lake are wonderful, and each little village with its brightly painted houses seems a terrace on the water.

The three enchanting Borromeo islands are definitely worth the boat ride over: Isola Madre and Isola Bella host the Borromeo palaces and gardens, while the charming Isola dei Pescatori or "fishermen's island, is smaller. One lake away, the charming car-free town of Orta S Giulio invites a slower pace when strolling through timeless piazzas and the Sacro Monte and its terracotta chapels dedicated to St. Francis.


  • Restaurant at 5 mins walk, others also close by.
  • Stresa 15 mins by car - ferries leave from here for the Islands.
  • Villa Taranto 30 mins drive

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
