La Foleia, Villa Ottagonale

Nest Italy: Magical Villa with Private Lake

La Foleia, Villa Ottagonale

A special, recently renovated destination. It was first imagined, then realized with art, courage and determination. Once an oak forest, it became a property with a 4000 sqm circle of water filled with a private, natural spring from the Ticino river. On the lake’s two opposite shores are two mirrored houses; one has an octagonal plan, with French windows that frame the water and the statues that adorn its edges from the living room. The other, a neoclassical pavilion, with large windows that open onto a stairway that accompany you into the lake. Around it, like curtains adorning the edges of your home, an unmissable variety of trees, plants and flowers, a secret, unimaginable garden, that can’t even be fathomed from the gate outside.

In the spring, frogs come to mate in the lake’s waters. And the sound of them mating inhabits the enchanted nights. As the days progress, the water lilies bloom exposing their pink flowers and the lake’s mirror becomes surprising, with big-mouthed fish jumping to eat mosquitoes, dragonflies filling the air and the mallards forming families, with ducklings swimming among the plants. In the evening, from time to time, you can even see herons resting on the lake to fish and rest. A magical place where nature makes us feel part of a whole and the houses, with their elegant furnishings, are precious stones set in the landscape. And where, outside, not far away, the worldly life of Lake Maggiore is still alive.

The Pink Villa: Up to 4 guests – 2 bedrooms – 2 baths

An octagonal plan, with French windows that frame the water and the statues that adorn its edges.

Dressed in pale pink with a neoclassical structure, this Villa is one of two souls that looks out onto the lake filled with lotuses and water lilies. Large french windows open onto the flower-covered patio illuminated by iron lamps on reserved and somewhat secret tables. Furnished with grace and romanticism, it alternates between muted colours and the stronger tones of natural greens. The veranda, used as a dining room, is camouflaged in nature inside and out: flowers and leaves chase each other among the vine leaves and the interior walls, decorated with the same foliage. The living room has the simplicity of a house that has always been lived in and the grandeur of a Renaissance painting, where charm is the essential element that conquers and keeps its promises.

The villa has two bedrooms, one in a Prussian green and one pink, with two grand, momentous bathrooms. The one in mottled black marble even contains a small sky of stars. The living room, surrounded by niches and neoclassical vases, overlooks the patio and the lake shore, and is perfect for summer evenings, winter mornings, aperitifs and dinners. The large veranda, surrounded by flowers and plants, is a wonderful dining room from which to admire nature, birds feeding in the surrounding trees and ducks swimming across the lake.
