"The August moon rises directly in front of the villa, turning the lake to shimmering quicksilver..." A romantic bed and breakfast getaway for couples situated on the Italian lake of Maggiore. Combining quiet elegance with stunning views The Villa Sanantonio Bed and Breakfast is ideally situated in the traditional village of Solcio and yet still remains only 10-15 minutes from the lakeside bars and shopping facilities of Stresa to the north and Arona to the south.

My friend and I stayed for three nights here and it was by far the best bed and breakfast we had been to. Gary makes incredible crepes each morning and you eat breakfast on a patio overlooking Lago Maggiore which is stunning. There is a dock at the bottom of their street and you can rent paddle boards and enjoy a day out on the lake or you can go to the beach and relax. Gary and Jenny are a very hospitable couple, they went out of their way to ensure we had an incredible time while we were there. The room was perfect, the bathrooms are gorgeous and the beds are extremely comfortable. I definitely would stay there again and recommend others to if they get a chance. The location is prime to get to the other cities nearby too!

We stayed at the villa for 3 nights in excellent company. Jenny and Gary are excellent hosts and top chefs who continuously strive for perfection. They villa has an excellent view on the lake and is located in a very calm area. You may walk down to the pier in mere minutes. I highly recommend this B&B!

We found this place on the internet whilst looking for a place to stay near Stresa and immediately fell in love with it. This was cemented after reading several other reviews and taking the advice to book the Summerhouse. Which we did. Upon arrival we were not disappointed, Gary and Jenny made us feel most welcome. Showing us our room and how everything works and where everything is etc. The views from villa are amazing and something you'll never tire of looking at. A 'pinch me' kind of feeling comes over you. We enjoyed Gary and Jenny's company and they were always on hand to recommend places to visit and where to dine out in the evening. They were happy to supply coals for the BBQ if you just wanted a night in relaxing on the summerhouse terrace with a glass or two of wine. Breakfast is on a beautiful terrace above the Summerhouse which consisted of crepes and an omelette which set us up for the day ahead. We honestly can't recommend staying here enough. They truly are great hosts making our stay magical.

What an experience. To say we were blown away by our stay at Villa San Antonio is a huge understatement. From the moment we arrived we have never felt so welcome in all our travels. Within an hour we felt like our hosts Gary and Jen were old friends! This only grew during our four day stay which was littered with lovely personal touches, delicious breakfasts on a sun kissed terrace, a beautiful private beach on the lake, and an amazing stay in the delightful and impeccable "Summer House". We quite simply did not want to leave and cannot wait to return to Villa San Antonio next time we are in Italy. Thoroughly thoroughly (URL HIDDEN) long as you enjoy romance, scenery and luxury! We miss you Gary and Jen! (and Sasha!).

We had a wonderful week with Gary and Jenny at the Villa San Antonio. They made us feel so welcome and really went above and beyond to make sure that we enjoyed our week in the Lakes. Not only that, but the view from our Summerhouse room was just spectacular and we were ideally located to discover the area. DO - listen to Gary and Jenny's recommendations for places to eat and visit! DON'T - forget your mosquito repellent if you are going to eat down by the lake in the evening! Thank you so much Gary and Jenny - it really was a huge pleasure to get to know you both! Becky and Andy
