About this listing

Located on the road that runs along the shore on the Piedmont side of Lake Maggiore not far from the Swiss border, near Ghiffa, you can take leave at this hidden waterfront home. Created in the late 1980 out of an old mill by one of Italians most acclaimed architects. Build with blocks of local granite in the early 19th. century, the house is one of the least conspicuous buildings overlooking the lake. A very private space, adopting an effortlessness attitude and often with an almost marine sky

The space

The Studio contains 2 rooms. The bed room is furnished with a queen-size double bed, 2 bedside tables, 1 chair and a wardrobe. The fireplace room is furnished with a daybed, lounge-chair, coffee table, marble fireplace and a Smart TV with local channels. Next to the rooms is a comfortable private bathroom with a bathtub/shower.
The window-door opens onto the lake with a covered terrace created underneath the roof hanging, with ample furniture, hammock and a price less view of the lago.

Guest access

Free private and secure parking on the villa’s grounds is included.
The house is located directly on the shore of the lake, with private access to go swimming and sunbathing on the pebble beach (water level varies throughout the year). Bring your beach shoes for easy access. Beach chairs are available.
Laundry service available on request.

Interaction with guests

Breakfast is included with focus on a balanced selection of fresh, healthy local food items. Let me know with your booking if any dietary plan has to be taken into consideration.
The big community table offers a great opportunity to interact with other guests and the host, to plan the day ahead, exchange views on past and future exploration and experiences made.

Other things to note

Il Dolce far Niente or ‘the sweetness of doing nothing,’ but it’s so much more than that. It’s sheer indulgent relaxation and blissful laziness, with no guilt, for no reason at all. Dining, sunbathing, and marveling at beautiful nature.
- Or exploring great cultural sites, local markets, National Parks, mountains and so much more!

Staying at Jean-Marc's house was the highlight of our whole Italy trip. We really enjoyed the stay and it was even a bit sad to leave after 5 days. The house is beautiful and the atmosphere inside is very cozy and peaceful. Breakfasts Jean-Marc prepares every morning are fantastic, especially when combined with the lake view. We enjoyed Jean Marco's company also a lot, he is a man with great life experience and it was a pleasure to spend some time having conversations with him. If we are back to Lago Maggiore once and Jean Marc's house is open, we'll visit again for sure :)!

This was an extraordinary experience!! The location was superb for island hopping on the lake or for shopping in Cannobbio. Being able to have easy parking was definitely a plus. The location right on the lake was wonderful if you love to swim, like we do. We had a wonderful time on the lake. And the view!!!!!!!!! Just breathtaking. The house was immaculately clean and everything was first class. If you ever have the chance to stay here, do it!! Jean-Marc speaks many languages, so it was very comfortable for us that he spoke English. This is a must do on your list of places to visit!

Jean-Marc is a very nice host. He has a good knowledge of the area and gave us a bunch of good advices to discover the place during our stay. The room and bathroom were perfect, clean and really comfy. It was a high quality experience that we could have had in any 3 stars hotel for a really good price.

I think my lake-shore home reflects and describes me best.
Deliberately and openly adopting an easy going attitude, typical of someone at the height of his maturity and traveled practically around the world. The Italian language has a good, old-fashioned word to express this naturalness - that comes not from nature but from study, indicating the need for art, ability and mastery to remain concealed rather than conceitedly display themselves: SPREZZATURA, effortlessness.
