About the property

Luxury 3 bedroom villas

Villa Caruso & Villa Sereni are 2 large, contemporary, adjacent 3 bed villas situated on the Eastern bank of Lake Maggiore, with stunning views across the lake. The property interior has been designed to make the most of the amazing views. Set in a quiet rural hamlet, these beautiful properties both sleep 6-8 & are set over 3 floors. The properties are south westerly facing each with over 120 m2 of interior living space, 3 large balconies & a teak-decked terrace. The villas are located only 5 minutes from the lakeside beaches & 3 miles north of the bustling lakeside town of Luino with a 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, Ascona & Locarno. Lake Como is a 1 hour drive and trains run direct from Luino to Milan in an hour. Verona is also easily accessible from the apartment & from there it's a short train journey to Venice. There is a golf course within a 20 minute drive.

About Jo Mackay

I am a mother with 2 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.

Jo Mackay purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jo Mackay chose Luino

We first stayed on Lake Maggiore in 2007 and loved it so much we bought Villa Caruso just over a year later. We had been thinking about buying a holiday property for a while but wanted somewhere we could use all year round. Lake Maggiore was perfect. Not only did it offer absolutely loads to do in the Spring and Summer, but during the winter it was only a 30 minute drive to the nearest ski slopes. We purchased Villa Sereni the following year allowing us and our guests the flexibility to accommodate a larger group or family gathering. The adjacent villas are set in a quiet rural hamlet where the only noise is the faint sound of the small stream that runs down from the mountain or the occasional sound of a cow bell in the summer. Heaven!

What makes this villa unique

We made sure that both Villa Caruso and Villa Sereni were real 'home from home' properties. They are filled with gadgets and mod cons, with 3 flatscreen TVs in each villa, DVD players, a XBOX and wii games machine, satellite TV, BOSE docking stations and free internet wireless access. Both properties are furnished in a contemporary style and we have taken time to ensure careful attention to detail with luxurious White Company throws and cushions and designer beds.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We had a blissful week of peace, tranquillity, great food and fabulous location..."

"We truly enjoyed the views and the solitude of the lovely view of villa Caruso."

"I can’t find the words to reflect just how great it was..."

"The views and accommodation have been outstanding – we wanted for nothing and have already recommended to friends and family."

"Thanks for a great weekend in your lovely villa – I’ve enjoyed the luxury and comfort of the villa, the great view, the friendly local towns and of course the company."

Ruim en luxe appartement

  • 4 of 5

Het appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien. Aan vrijwel alles is gedacht.

Het uitzicht is fraai wanneer het tenminste niet mistig is.

Het pad naar beneden om het appartement te bereiken is vrij steil.

De afstand naar Luino is wat ver om eventjes boodschappen te gaan doen.

De verhuurster is uitermate vriendelijk.
