The house "la Madonnina" is situated on the eastern Italian shore of Lake Maggiore, in a small place called Arolo, between Laveno and Angera.
The house was built on a ridge and is surrounded on three sides by the lake and is surrounded by a vast garden, with lawns, terraces, old trees and many flowers. The shore of the lake can be reached on a small footpath within 10 minutes, to the next public beach by car takes about the same amount of time. Google Earth Koordinaten (download)


The next village for shopping is Laveno, with a weekly market on Tuesdays and ferries to Stresa, Intra or the Borromean Islands.
Around Arolo there are several good Restaurants on the shore of the lake or in the hills.
Cultural highlights are the cloister Santa Caterina in Reno, the Borromean Islands, the Panza-Collection in Varese or the Lago di Orta.
For shopping, Varese is the place to go, or the big Saturday market in Intra.
It takes 40 minutes by car to the Airport Milano Malpensa and the regional train from Laveno takes you to Milan in about an hour.
