Casa della Gioia

Follow the road that leads…
to your place of the Heart

In a refined natural setting, Casa della Gioia, a charming 19th-century residence, immediately makes one feel at home.

The magic of the lake, whose waters take on the color of the sky, captures the observer by embracing him in its reflections: shimmering and blue on sunny days, deep and wise when the sky is overcast.

Walking in the park prompts one to abandon, step by step, the tensions and stresses of city life. One encounters trees with huge trunks, wise centenarians whose slow, deep breathing takes one back in space and time to their roots, and by magic worries flow back to the earth like the dry leaves that fall in autumn, becoming manure for new life.

The facades, originally Pompeian red, now a fascinating testament to time past, enclose a house with large halls overlooking the garden and rooms on the two upper floors from which there are wonderful views of the park and the enchanting surrounding landscape.

Our rooms

The House has 5 bed rooms.
It lives in the sun and falls asleep in the stillness of the night. And it is not without dreams.

A Thousand Corners of Peace and Beauty

The surroundings

Casa della Gioia is located in Castelveccana, a delightful town situated between Laveno (a ten-minute drive away, where the train arrives and the hydrofoil departs) and Luino (a must-visit Wednesday market).

With a nice walk you can reach the small village of Caldé, the little Portofino of Lake Maggiore with its romantic little harbor, from which in a few minutes you can reach the Fornaci beaches, or the divers’ beach, with lots of little trees on the shore and clear water.

In Laveno with the funicular railway, an impressive 15-minute ascent takes you up to Mount Sasso del Ferro, about 1,000 meters above sea level, from which there is a stunning view of the lake that fades into the distance.

Among the splendid trips to be organized absolutely cannot miss the enchanting Borromean Islands, favorite destinations of tourists from all over the world with their sumptuous palaces and gardens, the enchanting Hermitage of Santa Caterina dal Sasso, Lake Elio, Mount Mottarone and Cuvignone, Curiglia, the Froda waterfalls and the exquisite Villa Pallavicino, Villa della Porta Bozzolo and Villa Taranto with their wonderful botanical gardens.
