Description

The villa is located within a 5 minute drive of the lakeside and only 3 miles north of the bustling lakeside town of Luino with its wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Less than 5 miles from the Swiss border, the villa also provides easy access to the Swiss towns of Lugano and Locarno. Lake Como is a one hour drive and trains run direct from Luino to Milan in an hour.

The property is south westerly facing and enjoys the sunshine throughout the day. Up one flight of stairs, there are 2 bedrooms - one double bedroom with private balcony with lake view and one twin bedroom with views to the countryside - as well as a modern family bathroom. Up another flight of stairs there is the fantastic master bedroom with kingsize bed. This has a large ensuite bathroom with walk in shower, his and her sinks

There are two balconies on this floor, one with lake views and one with views to the hills.

The property is fully equipped with all the mod cons guests could wish for including 3 flatscreen TVs, DVD player, BOSE docking station and Wii games console. There is also a brand new Nespresso coffee machine in the property. (Please note: Guests are advised to purchase Nespresso capsules ahead of their stay as there are very few outlets near the property selling Nespresso products.)

The owners have also gone to great lengths to make the property family friendly, providing a travel cot, highchair, pushchair, baby monitor and bed rail all free of charge. There is also a selection of toys, board games and childrens DVDs.

The property shares with three parking spaces with the neighbouring property, Villa Sereni. The driveway down to the villa is very steep. Therefore, if guests prefer, it is also possible to park on the main road at the top of the drive.

Please note that this property can be rented together with Villa Sereni to accomodate 12-16 people.

Location description from manager

The Lombardy region

Lake Maggiore offers visitors a wealth of activities and sights to enjoy whatever your age. With plenty to do during your Lake Maggiore holiday, whether you're six or sixty six, it's a great all year round holiday destination in a stunning part of Italy. With great beaches to relax on in the Summer, wonderful villages to visit in the Spring, skiing to enjoy in the Winter and some stunning walks in the Autumn, Lago Maggiore really does cater for all tastes! The property is perfectly placed for visiting Luino, Cannobio, Cannero, Stresa, Ascona & the Borromean Islands. A great day out is the Lago Maggiore Express by boat up to Ascona & Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps then connect to Stresa. Also in Switzerland, Valle Verzasca & Valle Maggia are worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in Goldeneye. The river is fantastic to swim in & the setting is idyllic. Como is just a 45 minute drive away. Lake Como enjoys its own ferry service and features Bellagio, Varenna & Villa Carlotta. In the other direction, Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes. It's a 45 min drive from Lugano & the Monte Salvatore funicular. There is a beautiful lido here too which I would recommend. The brand new lido in Locarno (opened Oct 2009) is also superb. Or you can catch a train into Milan city centre & go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie & Da Vinci's painting of 'The Last Supper.' Or 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 international brands offer their products at factory prices. The nearest beaches are no more than 5 mins away, whilst nearby Maccagno is one of the best spots on the lake to enjoy watersports. Val Veddasca is ideal for hiking. The scenery and nature is fabulous. Most of the nearby mountains also have tracks for mountain bikes. The area offers plenty to do for children - Swissminiatur, a Swiss chocolate factory and the European Museum of Transport. Monte Tamaro is a great place with an alpine bob sleigh and the longest flying fox in Switzerland! Or you could try your hand at falconry or visit a safari park! In the summer, there is a huge waterpark near Milan. Please ask for more details on what there is to see and do in the area.

Dumenza

The property is situated in a quiet hillside location in a rural hamlet overlooking the lake. However, it's only a 5 minute drive to the lakeside and the nearest beaches. There are also 2 excellent restaurants at the lakeside here. There is another restaurant, along with a village store, cafe, pharmacy and supermarket in the village which is a couple of kilometres uphill from the villa. The nearest large town is Luino which is about a 10 minute drive away. This has a much larger selection of bars, shops and restaurants. There are also banks and a hospital here.
