About the property

Contemporary apartment in the Italian Lakes, 2 minute walk to the village, WIFI

This is a 1 bed, modern, contemporary stylish apartment sleeping 2-4 people. The apartment has been styled by Italian interior designer, Simone Micheli. It is situated a few minutes walk from the centre of Brezzo di Bedero on the Eastern banks of Lake Maggiore. It has absolutely stunning 180 degree views of the lake down to Stresa and up to Cannobio. The views can be enjoyed from an exceptionally large terrace with outdoor seating. Wireless internet access. Flatscreen TV. Private parking. The apartment is located a few miles south of the bustling lakeside town of Luino with a wide selection of bars, shops and restaurants. Since Luino also has a ferry port, it's also ideally placed for visiting the whole of the rest of Lake Maggiore. Only 20 minutes from the Swiss border, it's also easy to reach the Swiss towns of Locarno, Ascona and Lugano. Lake Como is only a 1 hour drive away and trains run direct from Luino to Milan in an hour.

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.

Jo Mackay purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Jo Mackay chose Brezzo di Bedero

When my family and I first visited Lake Maggiore in 2007, we stayed in an apartment within the Sopra il Lago development. The apartment was wonderful and we fell in love with the area hook, line and sinker! We spent hours just looking at the view from the apartment! It truly is stunning! The properties are within walking distance of Brezzo di Bedero which has a traditional little pizzeria. But it's also only a few minutes in the car to the beaches and larger towns round the lake. There is so much to do on Lake Maggiore whatever the season from lazy days at the lido, shopping trips in Milan, boat trips, water sports, sightseeing, golf, walking, cycling, skiing, a night at the opera (to name but a few) and of course, plenty of delicious food and wine!

What makes this apartment unique

The owner of these apartments is an expert on interior design which reflects in the furnishings. They are modern, contemporary, luxury apartments set in an exquisite location. The setting is absolutely idyllic. And I don't think you could find a better view anywhere else!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"I had a fantastic time thank you very much, the apartment was exactly what I was looking for, so myself and my partner were very pleased.... All together it was an awesome trip and a perfect way to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. " Adam Bailey

"The villa was spotlessly clean, beautifully equipped and very spacious too! Great views across lake Maggiore."

The nearest beach is a 5 minute drive away at the bottom of the hill. There are larger beaches on Lake Maggiore just 10 minutes further away by car at Maccagno. On the other side of the lake, there are great beaches at both Cannobio and Cannero. We would highly recommend the numerous lidos on offer. Of particular note are those at Locarno and Lugano which both have numerous pools, including childrens pools, Olympic sized swimming pools, diving pools etc. Please ask for more information.


The nearest airport is Milan Malpensa which is approx 45 miles drive from the property. Easyjet travel here from London, Bristol and Edinburgh, or you can travel by BA from LHR and Monarch from LGW. Flybe offers flights from several UK airports to Milan including Birmingham, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Southampton and Belfast.

Milan Linate: transfer time is approx 120 mins. Easyjet and BA fly to Linate from London.

Fly to Bergamo: transfer time is approx 12 mins.


The centre of Brezzo di Bedero is a few mins walk away. This is quite a sought after village & includes a pizzeria. There is also a village shop within walking distance. It's 5 mins by car to Luino which has a wide selection of shops, bars & restaurants. The house is perfectly situated for visiting the other towns around the lake - the car ferry at Laveno is only a 15 minute drive away, or alternatively foot passengers can hop on a boat in Luino. Milan is only 1 hour away by train.

Further Details:

There is plenty to see and do in the area. A great day out is the Lago Maggiore Express by boat from Luino to the Swiss towns of Ascona and Locarno where you take the 'Hundred Valley' train into the Swiss Alps then connect to Stresa and back by boat to Luino. Also in Switzerland, Valle Verzasca is definitely worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in the opening sequence of Goldeneye. Driving up on the mountain from the dam, there are parking spots which give you access to the river. The river is fantastic to swim in and the setting is idyllic. Slightly further afield, the Italian city of Como is just 45 minutes drive away. Lake Como enjoys its own ferry service and features the gorgeous towns of Bellagio and Varenna plus Villa Carlotta. In the other direction, Lake Orta is just as accessible. Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes and is well worth seeing. You are also just 30 mins away by car from Switzerland and the city of Lugano. Lugano has some fantastic shops as well as a beautiful lido which we would highly recommend. The lido in Locarno is arguably even more impressive! Once in Lugano, you might want to experience the Monte Salvatore funicular. A 10 min ride takes you to the mountain top where there are some fantastic views. Or you can catch the train into Milan city centre. The city is famous for shopping and fashion and is well worth a visit. It's a short metro ride to Santa Marie delle Grazie and Da Vinci's 'The Last Supper.' Verona is also easily reached for a day trip. Open air concerts are held here throughout the Summer at the incredible Verone Arena. For cheaper shopping than Milan, Luino boasts the biggest weekly market in Europe. Alternatively, there are several outlet malls within an easy drive. If hiking is your cup of tea, then Val Veddasca is ideal. The area also offers plenty to do for children and families. Please ask for more details and we can send you a full summary.
