Maria and Elvina were great. It was warm. No AC only one fan. Road noise was bothersome. Pool was nice. Access on and off highway a little hair raising.

Meina is a pretty village on the Piedmont side of Lake Maggiore, located, following the Simplon in a northerly direction, just after the town of Arona and before Solcio di Lesa. The territory was already inhabited in the Bronze Age and preserves evident traces of the most recent feudal past.

Meina and tourism

Originally known as Madina, Meina has some interesting churches in its territory.

The most important is the Church of Santa Margherita which houses some interesting frescoes inside. In the village of Silvera, a village of approx. 500 meters s. l.m., on the slopes above, we find the Church of San Rocco, of the nineteenth century, and in Piantini the Church of Our Lady of Fatima.

Near Ghevio di Meina, also like Silvera in the hills behind Meina, you can admire the Oratory of Sant'Anna, of medieval origin, and the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. Ghevio also houses an interesting building, once occupied by a blacksmith's workshop, where you can admire some ancient and interesting devices.

Meina and the villas: Villa Faraggiana

In the X-XI centuries there existed in Meina possessions of a Pavia monastery and the Benedictine monastery of Arona. Having come into possession, with all the Vergante, of the Milanese archbishops shortly before 1200, it was then a fief of the Visconti and the Borromeo family. The rediscovery of the enchanting beauty of Lake Maggiore and the birth of the fashion of the elegant holiday, from the century. XVIII, some prestigious residences are owed.

The entire coast of Meina is in fact a succession of villas and parks: The most admirable example is certainly the neoclassical Villa Faraggiana, built in 1855 by Raffaele Faraggiana and immersed in a vast park of more than 70 hectares. Spectacular is also the large park, which reaches the shores of the lake, of Villa Cella.
