Villa Sereni is a large, modern, contemporary, 3 bedroom villa situated on the Eastern bank of Lago Maggiore, with stunning views across the lake. Set in a quiet hamlet, this luxury holiday home sleeps 6-8 and is set over 3 floors.

The space

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.

You enter the property on the ground floor where there is a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area. This leads out onto a teak decked terrace with stunning lake views. 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 and bath. 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, Blue Ray DVD player with DVD library, BOSE docking station and XBOX games console with selection of games. There is also a brand new Nespresso coffee machine in the property. (Please note: Guests are advised to purchase their own Nespresso capsules ahead of their stay as there are very few outlets near the villa selling Nespresso products).

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

The property has the following amenities:
XBOX games console and games.

The house has an amazing view and is very well equipped. We found salt, pepper, enough toilet paper and tablets for the dishwasher, as well as a bottle of chianti and amaretti biscuits ! There are many different places to visit and things to do, all within a short drive. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely reccomend this house !!

We arrived to a modern very well equipped villa with an astonishing view to the Lake "Lago Maggiore". Great location and many beautiful places can be reached within one hour car drive. The warm welcome with some specialties from the region was very well appreciated :-) Each question that came up during our stay was answered immediately and we spend a great week in this wonderful place. Many thanks!

Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Es liegt etwa 7 Kilometer vom Lago Maggiore entfernt im Landesinneren. Der Blick auf den See ist atemberaubend. Die Gastgeberin Jo ist unwahrscheinlich freundlich und kümmert sich sehr liebevoll um die Gäste. Bei unserem Aufenthalt war sie nicht vor Ort. Wir mussten den Hausschlüssel im Camin Hotel abholen. Die Wegbeschreibung ist sehr detailliert formuliert, man muss sich jedoch genau beachten, sonst kann es Probleme beim Finden des Hauses geben. Die Ruhe (kein Verkehr) , die Natur, der Blick auf den See und das Haus, machen den Urlaub zu einem echten Erlebnis. Danke!

I am a mother with 2 young children, age 10 & 13 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 10 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy and now also in France through my site - Bookings For You. I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.
