Vacation Home Belgirate
The house is built in the middle of a 14.000 sq. property overlooking Lake Maggiore. A great view in a silent, reserved, exclusive place, with seasonal flowers and fruits, is the key for a relaxing holiday. There is a car park in a large private parking just 50m from the house. Enjoy your stay in this 2 floors, 3 bedrooms, 2 bath rooms property with a wonderful Veranda and a working Fireplace. You can reach the house from Malpensa airport within 35km car drive. Milano Airport will is 70km away. Wonderful Stresa and boats to the Borromean Islands are only 8km away. An 18 holes Golf Course is less than 10 minutes away, while Belgirate village and the beach is just a 15 minutes walk in the woods or a 5 min. car drive. What else can you wish for? Just book your holiday now!
Belgirate is a small, nice, 400 people village on the west coast of Lake Maggiore mid way between Arona and Stresa.
A quiet away-from-it-all place with no neighbours where you can relax but also find a choice of activities and entertainment within an easy reach. In less than 10 minutes car drive you can go sailing, wind-surfing, swimming and all kind of water sports on Lake Maggiore. You can choose between 6 different Golf courses within 30 kms (see Golf Details) or enjoy skiing in winter either on Mottarone or Macugnaga/Monterosa (see Ski details). Tennis is also available in the village (10 minutes walk) while if you like trekking you can start exploring the woods around the house or take a car and explore the pre-Alps and mountains around the lake. Horse riding is available in Magognino (3 Km.). You can enjoy a trip by boat to visit the Borromean Islands, visit the Botanic Gardens of Villa Pallavicino or drive to Orta S.Giulio thru the Mottarone road. Almost everyday you have nice Local Markets in the nearby villages while in less than 1 hr car ride you can go Fashion-shopping in Milano.
The House is surrounded by 14.000 meters of private woods and garden. A gardener will keep the place clean for you while you enjoy its fruits and its flowers. You can get fresh fruit in the garden almost all the year round.You start in May with wild Asparagus and Morons, in June you have Raspberries and Cherries, in July Nuts and small Pears, Blackberries and Figs in August, Grapes in September and Chestnuts in October and November.
In a hot sunny day the best way to spend the warmest hours is swimming in the Lake.
The water is fresh but a constant current keeps it clean in Belgirate.
If you like to meet other people you can choose the Public Beach which is located at the entrance of the village coming from Lesa.
If you like to stay on your own then I suggest you take Via della Masseria which starts few meters above the end of La Bargajana road. It is a little steep with 3 tight turnpikes but it is paved and takes you directly to the (by the way this is the fastest way to Stresa as well!). At the end of Via Masseria park your car, cross the SS 33 (Sempione Statal Road) and you will see on your left an access to the beach. A big Oak Tree will provide all the shadow you need.
If you are looking for a sandy beach a nice alternative is 20 kms north in Feriolo.
Day Trips and Things to do
*** 3 suggestions for a 'One Day Trip'.
A trip by Cable-Car from Stresa to Mottarone mountain top: wanderful view on the Alps and on the Lake. A Car ride to Orta S.Giulio passing thru Il Mottarone: after vthe nice view from Mottarone you will find a peaceful out-of-it-all atmosphere in Orta S.Giulio. A trip by Boat visiting S.Caterina del Sasso (a nice Monastery in a breathtaking place), Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori (nice Restaurants), Stresa and then back to Belgirate!
*** Botanic Gardens. If you like gardening then you might be interested in visiting one of the numerous Botanic Gardens in Stresa, Verbania or Isola Madre.

From the Guest Book
"˜We just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful holiday in your hous in Belgirate. We have never experienced such tranquillity "“ it was lovely. We loved the spectacular views from the house and all round the lake. It is such a beautiful place and we found the local people very friendly.' Peter and Sarah Robinson, August 2005.
"˜We had a lovely week here at La Bargajana. The view from the terrace over the lake is probably the best view we've ever had at a cottage. We couldn't resist the log fire, even though it was August, so we had a couple of late evenings in front of a fire with a bottle of wine.' Nicola Quinney, August 2005.
"˜Fabulous, wonderful spiffing!! We loved it here! Definitely one of the most beautiful places I've ever spent an holiday... will be sad to go! We have all truly enjoyed out time here... is so peaceful, private and great for exploring in the woods or small walks and we too had the privilege of seeing a thunderstorm! Positevely "out of the world" experience and that's a fact... we may return but definitely recommend La Bargajana to others!' Annie from London, July 2005.
"˜Thank you! La Bargajana is remarkable! It has been everything we expected "“ solitude, tranquillity, and abundant nature surrounding us from every direction. We also desired a view of Lago Maggiore, but we were not expecting one so generous as this! On our 1-5 enjoyment scale we give it a 5. These experiences will become cherished memories in time. Belgirate has truly been a "lovely turn", and La Bargajana a secret garden of paradise.' Scott Fin & Reny Baus, July 2005.
"˜It has been a wonderful 4 weeks "“ where did the time go?!?
