2 bedroom apartment within walking distance of restaurants, WIFI, lake views and private garden. Sleeps 4.
This is a lovely 2 bedroom apartment in campino, near stresa, with absolutely wonderful lake views. The property was completely refurnished in a modern, contemporary style at the end of 2011. Guests staying at the property are treated to incredible views of lake maggiore and the borromean islands. It will be hard to drag yourself away from the terrace and gardens to go and do some sightseeing, however, when you do, you will find that the property is ideally placed for exploring the area. Boats leave from the lakeside at baveno and stresa taking you all around the lake. There are also 2 restaurants within walking distance, one of which also has wonderful lake views!

About Jo Mackay
I am a mother with 2 young children, age 9 & 12 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 9 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 through my website - I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.
Why Jo Mackay chose Campino
My family and I bought a property on Lake Maggiore back in 2008 - it's where we fell hook, line and sinker in love with the country! It's just an amazing area to holiday in, with something for all ages to enjoy from babies and toddlers to teens, parents and grandparents.

Coast/Beach: There are plenty of beaches to enjoy around Lake Maggiore. The nearest of these is in nearby Baveno, just 5 minutes away by car. Here loungers are laid out on the sand where you can relax and sunbathe. There are also umbrellas, showers and locker rooms. You can also play beach volleyball here or enjoy some of the watersports on offer including wakeboarding, waterskiing, canoeing and pedalo hire for something more gentle!! Travel: The nearest airport is Milan Malpensa which is approximately 40 minutes away by car. Other airports include Milan Bergamo and Milan Linate. Car hire is recommended if you are to make the most of your stay. Distances: There are 2 restaurants within 100 yards of the property. There is also a small shop in the village of Campino. The elegant lakeside town of Stresa is just a few minutes away by car where there are a wide selection of shops and restaurants. Baveno is just a few minutes by car in the other direction (or a 30 minute walk downhilll). Baveno has a lovely lakeside area and boats leave regularly to the Borromean Islands. It also has a handy supermarket. Further Details: The property is perfectly placed for visiting Stresa & the Borromean Islands, or to catch a boat to the other wonderful towns and villages on the lake including Cannobio, Ascona, Locarno and Luino. A great day out is the Lake Maggiore Express by boat up to Ascona and Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps. It's a trip that can be done in a day or over a couple of days. Also in Switzerland, Valle Verzasca is worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in Goldeneye. The setting is idyllic. You can also use the property as a base to visit Lake Como or Lake Orta. Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes. Or you can catch a train into Milan and go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie and Da Vinci's painting of 'The Last Supper.' If you're more of a sports fan, you can take a tour of San Siro stadium. For cheaper shopping, Luino boasts the biggest weekly market in Europe. Or you could have a look at Foxtown, an outlet centre where the most famous brands offer their products at factory prices. The nearby Mottarone is ideal for hiking. The scenery and nature is fabulous. Most of the nearby mountains also have tracks for mountain bikes. You can also enjoy plenty of other sports there including skiing in the winter, hand-gliding and parascending. The area offers plenty to do for children - Swissminiatur, the Alprose Swiss chocolate factory and the European Museum of Transport. The Mottarone is also a great place for children with an alpine bob sleigh! There is also a superb adventure park for children in Baveno. Or you could try your hand at falconry or visit a safari park! There is a huge waterpark near Milan. Water sports such as sailing, surfing and water skiing are provided at Club Nautico in Stresa. Here you can hire boats or have your own boat brought into the water and anchored.
