Location and surroundings of object

More information and our "History".

More than ten years ago, we looked at the lake and dreamed with open eyes and year by year, stone by stone, has become reality from Finca Cascina Borchina. Restored and rebuilt, according to old pre-existing farmhouses, today it is a small finca with Family business, opening April 2017.

Finca Cascina Borchina is located on a hillside and offers a breathtaking view of Lake Maggiore and in words it is really hard to describe. For this reason, we have made numerous photos (all of our estate and not of viewpoints) so you have an idea of ​​our view and the countryside, but it is always just a part of what we offer. We assure you that it is much more beautiful in "nature"!


What distinguishes the structure is undoubtedly the attention to detail and the choice of materials. In the years we have always tried to create an elegant and refined environment, but at the same time rustic, to connect with the surrounding nature. The exterior walls of the house are entirely of stone, gneiss, brick and granite, while the floors (both external and internal) are exclusively in marble, lava, travertino, slate and stone. We tried, as far as possible, to use sustainable materials such as ecological cement for the construction and recycling of furniture in the dwellings, but also the walls and exterior walls of the old pre-existing farmhouse, respecting the ancient tradition. We have tried not to avoid ecological materials and prefer to use wood and stone to create herbeds around the house to facilitate integration with the surrounding vegetation. Although we are in the middle of a forest, Cascina Borchina is surrounded by ancient rocks and stone walls, which was used in the history for the cultivation of fruit plants and wine. Today we have lemon trees, herb cacti, wild cherry, oak and hazelnut, chestnut and whitethorn.


Cascina Borchina is literally surrounded by nature and surrounded by forest paths, although we can be reached by car quickly. For those who want to spend a relaxing holiday, to rest around a close contact with the nature, Cascina Borchina is ideal. For this reason, we welcome sportsmen and yoga lovers, moutain bikers, hikers, couples seeking romance, but also families and friends who want to go on holiday together.

Cascina Borchina, everyone is welcome, but not recommended for small children, as there are many walls and stairs in the garden.

Remarkable is the fact that there are no other houses near Cascina Borchina, you can hear and see no cars just from the guests.

To the point?

It is extremely difficult to label Cascina Borchina:

We believe it is rustic but oriental style, modern and up to date, quiet but not melancholic. For us, it is simply a home and everything you would like to enjoy in its time to relax. Our desire is that you spend in an unforgettable place, your special holiday

free time activities

inline skating

additional information

Cascina Borchina can be reached by car in about 10 minutes from Maccagno and its beaches (about km from the hill). You have to get up on the hill about five minutes, in the direction of Campagnano. Before Campagnano turn into a dirt road. The forest path can not be driven with low-level sports cars. For "normal" cars it is not a problem.

Maccagno is a famous holiday destination from spring to late autumn, due to its proximity to the border with Switzerland (about 6 km). Maccagno is a small town on Lake Maggiore, which offers a lot: Freeclimber in every season directly at the rocks of the Lago, hiking and cycling (road bike and mountain bike) and the famous market on Wednesday in Luino (about 5 km away) Visit the museum of contemporary art, take long walks along the lake, go swimming, boating, pedal boating, beach volleyball or tennis, (right by the lake) or eat in good restaurants and pizzerias .. The nearest restaurant is in Km from the finca. In spring, summer and autumn, Maccagno offers boat trips to Stresa, Cannobbio, Locarno and the Borromean Islands and many other beautiful places.

During the autumn season, Cascina Borchina is ideal for long walks and for freeclimbers, but also in the cities shopping and sightseeing. By car: Lugano (Switzerland) is only 35 minutes, Locarno (Switzerland) 30 minutes, Milan in about 1:20 by car or train, Lake Como, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Near Lugano, there is also an outlet with over 80 shops open all year round.

Maccagno has a post office, a pharmacy, a bank and a supermarket, a laundry and a car-sharing service, several well-developed climbing walls for freeclimbers.

Ski: The small but very fine ski resort at Monte Ceneri above Lugano is only 35 minutes away from the finca. The high-alpine ski resorts in the Aosta Valley, such as the magnificent area around Monte Rosa, Cervinia at the foot of the Matterhorn or Courmayeur on the southern side of the Mont Blanc, can be easily reached via the motorway approximately 2 1/2 hours driving time. This is even worth a day trip!

Golf: Our beautiful holiday paradise is also an ideal destination for passionate golfers. The old Lugano Golf Club is only 25 minutes away by car in the small town of Magliaso, directly on Lake Lugano. Also the golf club near the lake of Varese is well reached in about 45 minutes by car. The 'Le Robinie Golf Course' was designed by Jack Niklaus as a beautiful green garden. The 18-hole golf course is a masterpiece with amphitheater, bunker, terraces, ponds, valleys and hills. Everything is coordinated, the course is a challenge for every golfer and compels him so many skills and abilities. The course includes a driving range with 18 covered slopes, 2 putting greens, pitching green, clubhouse with changing rooms, well stocked pro shop; Hotel complex with indoor pool and fitness area, seminar rooms and large car park. The course is open all year round (except on 1 January and 15 August).

A wonderful place for an exciting holiday.

Traumhafte Lage

Schon bei der Ankunft waren wir von dem idyllischen Anwesen begeistert. Der fantastische Ausblick auf den Lago Maggiore, die Lage fernab vom seenahen Trubel und Verkehr rundeten unsere Tage ab. Mit viel Geschmack und Liebe haben Bettina und Andrea ein kleines Paradies erschaffen.
Schöne Wanderungen erschließen die höher gelegenen Bergdörfer. Wenn auch der Spaziergang nach Maccagno ein wenig Kondition erfordert, freut man sich um so mehr Balkon, Garten und Wohnung genießen zu können.
Unsere beiden sympathischen Gastgeber haben viele Tipps gesammelt, so dass wir sehr gerne wieder kommen.

Wow was für ein Urlaub

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen und total entspannenden Urlaub. Ein Traum von einem Anwesen,was Bettina und Andrea da geschaffen haben. Wir haben die Ruhe und den unbeschreiblichen Ausblick auf den Lago Maggiore genossen. Die Wohnung Violetta ist für 2 Personen ein ideales Kuschelnest. Mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht und sollte einem doch mal was fehlen,einfach fragen.
Die Ausstattung ist hochwertig und mit viel liebe ausgesucht. Ich fand das Bad ein Traum und möchte sowas auch zu Hause haben ;:)).
Die Anfahrt ist auf typisch kleinen ital. Strassen sehr sehr schön und der Privatweg zur Finca naturbelassen und etwas abenteuerlich. Wir Danken Bettina und Andrea für diesen Urlaub und hoffen das wir uns Wiedersehen. Lg Manuela und Sascha

Sehr empfehlenswert

Diese Ferienwohnungen kann ich nur weiterempfehlen, deshalb buchten wir auch schon zum zweiten Mal. Die Unterkunft ist sehr gepflegt und modern. Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Sehr erwähnenswert ist die wunderbare Aussicht auf den Lago Maggiore, vom Balkon und Anwesen aus.
In Maccagno und Umgebung ist für Unternehmungen für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei, sei es das Wandern (leichte bis anspruchsvolle Wege), Sightseeing, Shopping und Baden im Lago Maggiore (hier sind Badeschuhe zu empfehlen).
„Last, but not least“ möchte ich die wunderbare Gastfreundschaft der Vermieter Bettina und Andrea erwähnen.
Wir kommen gerne auch ein weiteres Mal.

Urlaub wie wir es uns gewünscht haben

Wir verbrachten einen traumhaften Urlaub in der Wohnung Violetta.

Die große Anlage und die imposante Lage des Hauses ist einmalig. Wir konnten uns einfach nicht satt sehen. Cascina Borchina liegt in bevorzugter absolut ruhiger mit freier Sicht auf den See umgebener Lage. Die freie Sicht auf den glitzernden See ist atemberaubend und in unseren Augen nicht zu übertreffen. Sonne von morgens bis abends ! Die Wohnung innen war sehr sauber und sehr gepflegt und mit allem ausgestattet was man benötigt. Das Doppelbett ist sehr bequem und rundrum ist alles sehr liebevoll ausgestattet. Internet , deusches TV usw. alles vorhanden. Die Eigentümer und der Kontakt waren sehr angenehm und freundlich.

Die Unterkunft können wir uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und wir kommen wieder.
