Mountain Villa in Falmenta, Valle Cannobina, Piedmont - Only 20 minutes to Lago Maggiore
Welcome to our cosy mountain retreat! Perched on the side of the outstandingly beautiful Valle Cannobina, Casa Falmenta occupies the perfect location for the keen walker and relaxer. Situated in an area rich in unspoilt nature, signposted footpaths lead from the cottage to neighbouring villages, gorges, natural pools and mountain peaks. To one side of the house nestles a vine-covered stone table overlooking neighbouring Crealla. Sit in the shade of the palm tree or bask in the sun while listening to the far-off bells of the Campanile. Situated ten minutes from the communal parking area, the walk to the house is like a garden exhibition, passing through the fully pedestrianized village of Falmenta via its medieval centre. It winds up gently cobbled steps and through lush gardens lined with hortensias, roses, waterfalls and gladiolas. Amenities include internet access, satellite-TV and DVD player, washer and dryer, weekly local market, cafe, public transport and one great view!
