Villa Alba is a beautiful, modern, contemporary 3 bedroom villa situated on the Eastern shores of Lake Maggiore. The property is in a stunning location and enjoys wonderful 180 degree views up and down the lake. With private steps leading from the garden to the beach and lake waters, this truly is an idyllic setting for a holiday in the Italian Lakes.
The property is south westerly facing with 140 m2 of living space, a large balcony leading from 2 of the 3 bedrooms and a stone terrace and lawned garden area. It is perfectly placed for visting the lakeside towns and villages on Lake Maggiore but if you wanted to look further afield, Lake Como is only a 1 hour drive and trains run direct from Luino to Milan in an hour. Other cities such as Verona and Venice are also accessible from the property.
The holiday rental is located in the village of Portovaltravaglia which boasts a small market every Monday between 8 and 1, an icecream shop, cafe and newsagents. The village centre also boasts an excellent restaurant - AGC Ristorante - serving modern Italian cuisine. Guests can usually walk to the village along the beach (although the water level does prevent this at certain times during the winter). There is another great Italian restaurant within a few metres walk of Villa Alba in the other direction.
The owner spent 2 years renovating the property to an extremely high standard and has created a luxurious property with a homely, welcoming feel. The property comprises 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed whilst the second bedroom has a double bed. Doors from both bedrooms lead out on to a balcony with stunning lake views. The third bedroom has twin beds which can be converted to a double if required. There is an open plan living, dining and kitchen area which leads out onto the garden and terrace. The modern designer kitchen is extremely well equipped. A fire in the living room makes this the perfect place to stay all year round...what better place to relax after a hard day on the slopes!
A table and chairs is provided in the garden for al fresco dining along with a couple of sunloungers.

The Lake Maggiore region
The property is perfectly placed for visiting Stresa & the Borromean Islands, or to catch a boat to the other wonderful towns and villages on the lake including Cannobio, Ascona, Locarno and Luino. A great day out is the Lake Maggiore Express by boat up to Ascona and Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps. It's a trip that can be done in a day or over a couple of days. Also in Switzerland, Valle Verzasca is worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in Goldeneye. The setting is idyllic. You can also use the property as a base to visit Lake Como or Lake Orta. Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes. Or you can catch a train into Milan and go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie and Da Vinci's painting of 'The Last Supper.' If you're more of a sports fan, you can take a tour of San Siro stadium. For cheaper shopping, Luino boasts the biggest weekly market in Europe. Or you could have a look at Foxtown, an outlet centre where the most famous brands offer their products at factory prices. The nearby Mottarone is ideal for hiking. The scenery and nature is fabulous. Most of the nearby mountains also have tracks for mountain bikes. You can also enjoy plenty of other sports there including skiing in the winter, hand-gliding and parascending. The area offers plenty to do for children - Swissminiatur, the Alprose Swiss chocolate factory and the European Museum of Transport. The Mottarone is also a great place for children with an alpine bob sleigh! There is also a superb adventure park for children in Baveno. Or you could try your hand at falconry or visit a safari park! There is a huge waterpark near Milan. Water sports such as sailing, surfing and water skiing are provided at Club Nautico in Stresa. Here you can hire boats or have your own boat brought into the water and anchored. Please ask for more details about what to see and do.
Brezzo di Bedero
The property is located right on the lakeside. The lake and beach is literally at the end of the garden! There is a restaurant a couple of hundred yards up the road. In the other direction is the village of Portovaltravaglia. This is a lovely village with 2 excellent restaurants, cafes and bars, an ice cream shop, supermarket and geletaria. At certain times of year, guests can walk along the beach to this village.
