“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

this villa is fantastic! Brilliant view obviously but the decor and amenities are spot on to. We love this area of the world, there is so much to see and is no more than an hour from some of the greatest scenery in Europe from the mountain passes to many of the Italian & Swiss Lakes and what a wonderful property to come home to after a day trips. Ascona and Locarno, although completely different, are both very charming and on you doorstep. We think a car is essential but that's because we love driving in the Alps.
Sabine & Arthur were excellent hosts responding to our queries quickly and efficiently and, more importantly, with good grace! Thank you for sharing your home with us and we hope we can visit again, perhaps next year!

“Stunning”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A stunning view and beautiful house. The house is lovely, the decor was very stylish, it was clean and very well equiped - we had everything we needed, and the views from the balcony were absolutely stunning. The location is fantastic as well, very quiet and peaceful but with lots to see and do including day trips into Italy (I do recommend a car to get round). We had a really lovely stay thank you so much.

Our Honeymoon!
Well! What an absolute stunning place to spend the very beginning of our marriage!! The villa is truly beautiful, so tasteful and relaxing; the views are totally breath-taking, so wonderful to wake up to and even at night all the twinkling lights are simply magical! Tram/cable car + skilift is a must, awesome! Also well worth is the drive through the Valle Verzasca; amazing alpine villages and frozen waterfalls - outstanding natural beauty!! Yes, we have had an honestly unforgettable time here at Villa Bella Vista; thank you Sabine & Arthur for sharing your home with us. Eternally in our memories, Karen & Dennis Carter

“Unforgettable Christmas”

We had a very special Christmas in Villa Bella Vista. The house is comfortable, tastefully decorated and have everything you may need to enjoy your time. We were particularly fan of view we had from the balcony and the living room with a nice fireplace for chilly evenings. The weather was great, sonny at day and cold at night. The best climate to visit the places around during the day and enjoy a nice dinner with friends at home. We are quite certain that we will never forget the sweet breeze from the mountains in the morning. We are sure that all other guests will love the place and will have a special time such as us.

We had a wonderful week at Villa Bella Vista. The villa is excellent and has fabulous180 degree views of the lake from its patio. The interior is very modern and extremely well furnished and appointed. There is lots to see and do in the area and the roads and ferries are very good. If you're looking for a beautiful villa in a fantastic location on Lake Maggiore, look no further.

“The Beautiful Villa Bella Vista Minusio”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed for a week in Villa Bella Viista with friends from 23rd - 30th May, we had the most wonderful holiday. The villa and gardens were absolutely immaculate and so beautiful, the views were breathtaking, everthing was just gorgeous. The owners Sabine and Arhur were very courteous and kind, sending lots of information about the surrounding area, directions, transport links etc. A lovely touch was the bottle of champagne and card left by them welcoming us to the villa and wishing us a lovely holiday. We visited lots of beautiful places and very much hope to return one day.
