This is a spacious 5 bedroom villa within a short walk of the lakeside in Meina. The villa is traditional in style, furnished with both elegance and taste and equipped to a high standard, with access to a shared garden leading to the Lake & beach.

The space

The villa itself measures approximately 280 square metres. The main living space is all on the ground floor where there is a good sized entrance hall and large living and dining room with fireplace and TV. The TV is DTT digital terrestrial with a number of international channels. The living space is bright and airy, with doors leading from the room to a private terrace and spacious garden. Comfortable leather sofas and armchairs provide relaxed seating, whilst there is a formal dining table seating up to ten.

Also on the ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen, complete with large fridge / freezer, electric oven, 5 ring gas hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and double sink. One set of doors lead from the kitchen to the terrace area whilst another leads to the dining room and a third to the hallway.

Also on this floor is a master bedroom, two further bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have double beds whilst the 3rd bedroom is laid out as a twin bedroom. All bedrooms are tastefully furnished with plenty of storage space, whilst the third bedroom also has a desk area, ideal for children to colour at or for adults to enjoy some peace and quiet to get some work done! Two of the bedrooms also enjoy doors out to a terrace area. The first bathroom is adjacent to the master bedroom and has a bath with overhead shower, his and her sinks, bidet and toilet. The second bathroom has a shower, bidet, sink and toilet.

Stairs lead to the first floor of the property. Here there is a second living area with large, original fireplace. A bar area provides an unusual feature. Moving through, there are two additional bedrooms on this floor. These can be arranged as either twin or double rooms. These 2 rooms each enjoy their own bathroom. The first is tiled with red and white ceramic tiles and equipped with corner bath, sink, bidet and toilet. The second bathroom on this floor has a shower, bidet, sink and toilet. Finally, there is a second kitchen area on this floor with doors leading from the kitchen to a balcony area. Whilst more basic than the downstairs kitchen area, the kitchen on this floor is also equipped with gas hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There is a table seating four.

A basement area houses a laundry room and additional bathroom as well as garage space. There is also plenty of secure parking on the main driveway of the villa, access to which is via a lockable gate. The property is set in a private garden of approximately 1800 square metres.

Across the road from the villa, approximately 2 minutes walk away, is a small garden and beach area which leads directly on to the lake. The beach is shared with the other villas in the immediate locality.

Guest access

The guests have sole use of the entire villa. The separate garden and beach area is shared with other villas in the area.

We booked this spacious house for eight people and had a great time. The house is well equipped and has - contrary to other reviews - a functioning dishwasher as well as enough dinnerware. The kitchen is big enough to cook for 10+ people. The house was very clean. The garden is nice and you can even sit outside whilst it is raining due to the roofed terrace. Beware though, that there are train tracks about 300 meter away and trains are passing even in the night. We could live with the noise, if you´re very sensitive to it this might not suit you. The entrance to the lake is about 500 meter away and semi-private (shared with some other houses), though we never encountered anyone else there. It´s only good for going in the water though, not a place you´d like to lay down and spend the day. Your local host Fiona on the other hand is very nice and charming and will guide you to alternatives. She recommended us a nice beach only 5 minutes away by car. Overall, this was a great house and we might stay here again.

We were a group of eight. With this size, the house was perfectly shaped for us. We had 4 bathrooms and enough space for us in general. The house was as descriped, clean and well equipped (eg kitchen). Location is awesome! Just a short walk to the lake and a really nice private lake property. Contact and service is competently, friendly and fast. We really would recommend this place!

Super maison avec beaucoup d'espace, agréable à vivre avec accès privé a une plage sympa. En revanche il n'est pas indiqué dans l'annonce qu'un train de nuit passe toutes les 30 minutes juste derrière la maison donc ca fait du bruit! Nous avons acheté des assiettes en plastique car il n'y en avait pas assez, Et le lave vaisselle ne fonctionnait pas. Bonne communication Et disponibilité des personnes qui s'occupent de la maison, ils nous ont apporté des ventilateurs car il faisait 35 degrés.

Sehr großes und geräumiges Haus, sehr sauber. Ausstattung ist wie auf den Bildern und in gutem Zustand. Alle Einrichtungsgegenstände funktionieren tadellos und laden ein zum gemeinsamen Kochen und Zusammensitzen. Der Seezugang ist allerdings in einem zweiten Grundstück, das ca. 2 Minuten zu Fuß von der Villa entfernt ist. Die Villa selbst verfügt über einen riesigen Außenbereich mit schönen Terassen, Balkonen und großzügig angelegtem Garten, ebenfalls sehr gepflegt. Alles in allem ein sehr zu empfehlendes Haus für größere Gruppen, die einen entspannten Urlaub gemeinsam genießen möchten. Ein Auto ist hier zu empfehlen, um die vielen Freizeitmöglichkeiten um den See möglichst unabhängig und spontan zu erschließen. Der Lago Maggiore lädt ein zum Mieten eines Boots, Insel-Hopping, Wandern, Fahrradfahren, Schwimmen, italienisch Essen gehen, Entspannen und Ausblicke genießen.

Der Kontakt mit Jo via Mail, wie auch der Kontakt mit Kristie vor Ort war sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Kristie gab uns vor Ort auch Tipps, wie wir unseren Kurzurlaub gestalten können und war sehr besorgt um uns! Das Haus selbst war sehr geräumig, sehr sauber und es war alles da, was wir benötigten. Es war vom Grundriss ideal für uns! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Danke nochmal für alles!! P.S. Lediglich die Bahnlinie im Hintergrund war manchmal etwas laut.

Thank you so much for your feedback. It was a pleasure to host you at this property and I'm so pleased you liked the space, layout and amenities and also found our service both before and during your stay helpful. I'm sorry you heard the trains. The line is fairly near but trains are so infrequent many people don't even realise it is there!

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.
