About the Rebel Girls

My great-grandma Margherita, called Desi, was born in 1905, in Cannero Riviera, and her mother, Eugenia called Genia, was born in 1885 in Trarego.
The entire history of our family starts from there.

A family of strong, brave, rebellious women. In an Italy that wants them perfect mothers, angels of the hearth, in support of the family and their husbands.

Desi had ice-blue eyes and an all too determined character. She was used to standing up to her father of Swiss origin, who had been orphaned as a child. And stubborn when, despite her mother’s disagreement, she marries Alberto, a handsome man from Emilia, a soccer player in Brescia. Her life will be a roller coaster in which her father and husband will put a strain on her nerves.

During the Second World War, the entire family takes refuge in Trarego. In particular, in a small house in Cheglio, on the road to Cannero. As a neighbor, Carolina. She was a good and welcoming woman, who always had a fireplace going and some soup for everyone. In turn endowed with an elusive husband, who works aboard ships and takes little care of home and family.

This is how Desi and Carolina began to consider becoming rebellious girls.

The long talks in front of the fire, the doors always open to the yard to reach each other within shouting distance: “Desiiiiii!” – “Carolinaaaaa!” The pro-divorce flyers in a bigoted Italy. The children, children and grandchildren, taking turns in the summer. And the little girls, inspired to be rebellious girls too. To create a more modern, fairer society with more consideration for girls of any age.

Who we are

Let’s introduce ourselves: we are Max and Sebastian. We believe that everything done with love generates positive energy. So, in renovating the Little House and welcoming our guests, we put a lot of our own into it: smiles, enthusiasm, ideas, and dreams. Which, incidentally, are always destined to come true.

History of the Little House

This Little House has an old heart and is all new. It is our tribute to those rebellious girls: Desi and Carolina, but also Enrica and Verbena. Girls who didn’t let someone else write their destiny: they did it themselves.

A vacation home on Lake Maggiore

"In this Little House on the lake seems to be transported to a parallel reality of relaxation and serenity. The apartment has been renovated in a delightful way (I stole some ideas that I will also use to renovate my house!), a real gem with all the comforts ... I'm not exaggerating when I say that I really felt at home. The icing on the cake is the rooftop terrace overlooking the lake, get comfortable with that view to read a book was priceless. Highly recommended if you need to unplug for a few days!"

Valentina, una delle nostre prime ospiti

It is in this spirit that we want a stay in our Little House to be relaxing for the body and inspiring for the mind. Let it be a small place, protected and quiet, to enjoy the view of the lake, take advantage of the cool mountain air and let the current of thoughts blow, bringing beautiful changes for when our guests return home.
