Open to the rental market in 2014, and following extensive modernisation, is the ground level 4 person apartment of Casa Dansam, a twin apartment house situated at Lake Maggiore, in the village of Novaglio in the wider community of Oggebbio. In respect of internal lounge seating and dining, and sleeping accomodation in two bedrooms, the apartment is designed and equipped to comfortably house 4 persons. The house nestles in a glorious natural woodland hillside setting 50 metres above the Intra to Locarno main Lake 'route nazionale', and commands unique, breathtaking and unobstructed 180 degree panoramic views of the Lake from patio, side gardens, and well stocked garden terraces.

In respect of internal lounge seating and dining, and sleeping accomodation in two bedrooms, the apartment is designed and equipped to comfortably house 4 persons. The house nestles in a glorious natural woodland hillside setting 50 metres above the Intra to Locarno main Lake 'route nazionale', and commands unique, breathtaking and unobstructed 180 degree panoramic views of the Lake from patio, side gardens, and well stocked garden terraces. With a mountain range backdrop in all directions when looking northwards towards the 'upmarket' lakeside village of Cannero Riviera and its ancient castle remains, and southwards towards Ghiffa, and Intra in the wider area of Verbania, no matter what the time of year, the scenes are ever changing according to seasons, weather and light, and will leave the guest visitor with favourable and indelible memories of their visit to the area, all to be captured by camera. On entry through double patio doors, the ground level apartment has overall room accommodation of around 55 square metres, and comprises: Living room - equipped with a 3 seater bed settee, matching 2 seater settee, drop leaf dining table and integral chairs for four persons, colour satellite television for English and German programmes / DVD player, radio / CD player. Bedroom 1 - equipped with 2 x single size beds, double door 3 drawer wardrobe, 3 drawer bedside cabinet, & electric fan. Bedroom 2 - equipped with super-king size bed, double door 2 drawer wardrobe, 3 drawer bedside cabinet & electric fan. Shower room - equipped with modern shower unit, toilet, hand basin and lighted vanity mirror in modern white fitted units, and washing machine Kitchen - A superb modern white fitted kitchen housing ample upper and lower storage cupboards, and equipped with integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer, 4 ring gas hob, electric oven, together with electrical appliances and facilities of microwave, coffee percolator, kettle, toaster, blender, food mixer, iron & ironing board, vacuum cleaner & manual clothes dryer. External integral private patio for leisure, sunbathing, dining purposes etc., equipped with a metal glass topped table and 4 x matching chairs, table parasol, 2 x sun loungers, a 2 seater garden chair. (and an additional oval white garden table & 4 x matching chairs to accommodate guests visitors.) For guests who enjoy outside cooking and eating, the use of a full size (charcoal burning only) barbeque is provided which is located in the main garden area to the house. Additionally, free Wi-Fi connection is provided throughout the apartment, patio and garden. The house/apartment location also benefits from being within a 5 minute walking distance (350 metres) from the Lake, public beach, and nearest 'La Sierra' restaurant which provides a 'pizza takeaway' service. Directly below the house on the 'route nazionale,' bus stops are located which operate regularly from Locarno in Switzerland, via Intra in Verbania to Omegna at Lake Orta. A bus timetable and bus tickets can be obtained from 'Camping La Sierra' opposite the beach, as tickets are required before boarding a bus. Please note that access to the apartment from the private service road is down 3 flights of 7 steps each; walking access to the Lake and beach is downhill; and the main side gardens merge into woodland. We therefore feel that the property may not necessarily be suitable for very young children, the infirm, or guests of restricted mobility. For boat owning water ski enthusiasts, the summer climate is ideal for water skiing, and Casa Dansam has a swing mooring buoy available for daily rental of 5 Euros per day. Being situated on a private access road, car driving access to the house at Novaglio is through the hillside village roads leading from either Ghiffa or Gonte to Novaglio then down hill to owners/guest car parking at 50 metres distance from the house. Car parking is also available opposite the beach adjacent to the 'route nazionale', but will require a scenic uphill walk to the house. The local villages of Ronco and Gonte each at an approximate distance of 2 kilometres provide stores for daily groceries, and local bars, and a chemist/pharmacy are also located at nearby Gonte and Ghiffa. For in depth shopping, the main town of Intra at 5 kilometres distance provides innumerable supermarkets, fashion, clothing and consumer goods shops, and the large Saturday open air market at Intra is a must for locally produced foodstuffs, leather goods etc. This travelling market is also hosted at nearby Cannobio every Sunday morning. The nearest airports are Milan Malpensa at 79 kilometres, Milan Linate at 130 kilometres, Milan Bergamo 154 kilometers, and the nearby railway station of Pallanza Verbania at 11 kilometres distance. For the more adventurous, the famous sights of the Milan Cathedral (Duomo), Sempione Park, Castelli del Forza, and La Scala Opera House, all located in central Milan, are just 113 kilometres distant by car or train, and can all be easily visited within the day. Above all, any holiday at Lake Maggiore would be incomplete without a Lake ferry or boat trip from the Intra fery terminal to the Borromean Islands of Isola Bella and its exquisite botanical gardens, statues and internal artworks; Isola Pescatore with its tiny cobbled streets and fragrant house balcony gardens, and Isola Madre renowned for its gardens and live puppet theatre. Additionally from the Intra ferry terminal, water buses, taxis and ferries also traverse Lake Maggiore to most villages on either side of the Lake, and northwards to Locarno in Switzerland. During summer months, a 'dining ferry' can be booked where you cruise the Lake in the evening, whilst romantically dining in style and taking in the sights of Lake Maggiore. With thanks for your cooperation, we request please that guests do not smoke inside the apartment at any time. More
