About the property

3 bedroom villa within walking distance of restaurants. WIFI. Sleeps 6

This is a lovely detached lakeside property with gardens that slope down towards the lake where guests can enjoy the beautiful clear waters to cool off from the heat of the sun.

Inside, the property is set over two levels with the majority of the living and bedroom space currently arranged on the first floor area. This first floor space houses a kitchen, living and dining area, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The interior is contemporary and stylish.

A staircase leads down to the lower floor, which is completely open to the lake. There is a third bathroom downstairs, ideal to shower in after coming in from the garden as well as a laundry room. From this level there is direct access to the garden, which slopes gently down to the beach area. Loungers are provided and there is plenty of shade provided underneath the overhanging terrace. Two sets of stairs on either side of the property go back to the parking area.

The interior has been arranged so that all rooms offer beautiful views of the lake. The views from the property are exceptional. There are fantastic lake views across to the opposite shore with the picturesque towns and villas of Meina, Lesa and Belgirate.

The villa is within walking distance of the boat stop where you can catch a boat to all the other towns and villages on the lake. You can also walk to a village store and restaurant.

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 Ispra

The Italian Lakes is a stunning part of Italy, offering holidaymakers the most beautiful scenery to explore. Lake Maggiore is particularly stunning, quieter than it's busier neighbours (Lake Garda and Lake Como), but just as beautiful and with a host of activities on offer for young and old alike.

What makes this villa unique

This is a fantastic property.... you can't get a better location than right on the lakeside in the Italian Lakes, especially when you are within walking distance of some great restaurants!

At the bottom of the garden!
Car: recommended


The nearest lakeside beach is literally at the bottom of the garden! The lake is wonderful to swim in, with beautifully clean and clear water. There are plenty of other beaches to enjoy around the lake as well as a number of lidos, many offering swimming pools as well as lake access, along with watersports hire.


The nearest airport is Milan Malpensa which is approximately 40 minutes away by car. Other airports include Milan Bergamo and Milan Linate. Both are under 90 minutes from the villa. Car hire is not essential as you can walk to restaurants and a village store from the property. However, car hire is recommended if you are to make the most of your stay and explore the area fully.


The nearest restaurant is within walking distance of the property. You can also walk into Ranco where there are a couple of additional restaurants and a village store.

Further Details:

The property is perfectly placed for visiting Stresa, Arona & 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 & 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 water park near Milan. Water sports such as sailing, surfing & 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. Please take a look at the travel guide on
