Situated high on a hilltop overlooking the lake, Borromeo is ideally positioned for exploring the neighboring lake towns and the beautiful countryside. Visit the Borromean Islands, named for the family that has owned them since the 12th century. Isola Bella, the largest island, has lovely gardens and Palazzo Borromeo, where Napoleon and Josephine once slept. Isola Madre is home to exotic birds and tropical, magical plantings. Take a walk on Isola dei Pescatori through an ancient fishing village with its narrow streets and wonderful restaurants. Explore mountains, lakeshore villages and markets or cross the border into nearby Switzerland.
Drive a scenic, winding uphill road to reach Borromeo. The home is surrounded by a lovely, fenced garden, providing complete privacy. Borromeo is beautifully appointed with comfortable furnishings. All bedrooms have access to the upper terrace and en suite bathrooms with clawfoot tubs and hand held showers. Both terraces offer breathtaking views of the lake.
The entrance opens into a spacious living room with fireplace and large French doors opening to the large, panoramic terrace ideal for relaxed summer dining, a dining room with seating for eight, a small, fully equipped kitchen and a guest bathroom.

Because Borromeo is on a very steep hill, it is not recommended for very young children. The train passes 250 meters downhill from the property, separated by other properties, trees and foliage.
