Holiday in a stately villa with spectacular views to Lake Maggiore. Villa Boffa is situated on a steep hill on the edge of the Valgrande National Park on the outskirts of the mountain village of Caprezzo. The almost 200-year-old building offers three individually furnished holiday flats: a 100 sqm flat on the first floor, a 120 sqm flat on the second floor and a 55 sqm flat (tower room) on the third floor. The flats have up to four meter high ceilings, are equipped with modern kitchens and have fireplaces that provide a homely atmosphere. Each flat has at least one balcony, with the balcony in the tower room stretching to a proud 28 meters. In addition, you will find 250 square metres of terraces around the house and in the wooded garden. Here, everyone will find their favourite spot to relax with a view of the surroundings or with a book in a deck chair. Holiday reading is taken care of, as the villa contains several comprehensive libraries. And for those who like to be active, there is a (heated) 16-metre pool in front of the villa.
