The location was perfect for relaxing and gaining access to all places around the lake. The views from the patio were to die for with the lake and snow capped mountains The property is spacious with all amenities to make it feel just like home. The owners make us welcome and we very helpful with ideas for trips around the area.
This beautiful house was perfect for our stay - as each of our guests arrived during the week, they immediately said "wow" to the amazing view and peace and quiet - we spent most of our time outside in the garden or at the outside table for all our meals, and overlooking the magnificent view of the lake. Very few vehicles passing by and truly, no other noise or intrusion. The house was immaculately clean and very practical with 2 downstairs bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a further 2 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. There was plenty of space for seven of us - even different areas outside to catch the sunshine at any time of day. The house suited my Mum in her wheelchair very well too, and the heating was on for a couple of cooler evenings when she was chilly.
The owners were more than kind too, providing us with extras of delicious food and wine, They looked after us very well indeed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend this house without hesitation for a stay by Lake Maggiore and easy to visit surrounding villages and towns, Lake Orta nearby, and even a short visit into Switzerland.
Easy travel to and from Milan Malpensa airport, about 40 minutes away by car, which was a necessity here as it would be a bit far up and down hill to the nearest village of Meina, to walk often.
The pictures show that the Villa has a wonderful location with great view over Lake Maggiore. The Villa is on the hill above the small town of Meina that is very peaceful and the owners and people of Meina are very friendly and helpful. It is easy to get to from either of Milan's airports and Arona is only a 10 minute drive away with shopping beyond the basics that are available in Meina. From Stresa, a similar distance in the other direction, you can visit the Borromean Islands on the lake. It has the pleasant atmosphere of a family home, which it is, and all that you require. Two bedrooms upstairs with bathroom and 2 downstairs with 2 bathrooms. A large TV with SkyHD means that you can argue over which sport/films or DVDs to watch. Thoroughly recommended for a relaxing holiday or as a base to visit this area.
