1, 2 and 3 bedroom modern, contemporary apartments in a luxury lakeside development. Guests enjoy use of a superb swimming pool and jacuzzi, surrounded by stylish teak decking and luxury loungers.

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.
My family and I bought a property on Lake Maggiore - 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.
The location of these apartments is particularly good. Right on the lakeside, within walking distance of beaches and watersports, there is also a cafe and bar on site as well as an excellent restaurant, serving modern Italian cuisine. There are plenty of other, more traditional eating establishments within a short walk. It is also possible to walk to the boat terminal, where you can catch a boat to all the other towns and villages on the lake. Whilst I always recommend hiring a car to make the most of your stay, this is actually one place where you could get about without one.
Saturday changeover day preferred in peak season however we do aim to be as flexible as possible to accommodate individual guests needs.
When we were taken into the apartment there was certainly a WOW factor. The apartment is spacious ultra modern and well fitted out. The views from the balcony over the lake were fantastic. The on site restaurant is really modern with excellent food and was certainly a fitting place to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday.
The only minor irritation was the WiFi which seemed to only work out on the balcony, not exactly a show stopper!
A Beautiful modern 3 bed/2bath very well laid out apartment in Golfo Gabella, Maccagno which was perfect for our family(6 adults & 1 child).Top floor(of 3) with lift & stairs.2 balconies, one which is full lenght of the apartment with sun almost all day with solid wall around, suited for safety of our 3 year old grandson, the other balcony looked towards the pools & had partial view out across the lake. The complex is very well kept.
There is a Train Station just 5 min walk runs all the way to Milan Malpensa airport terminal. Some rail noise but not troublesome at all. Very convenient for visiting local areas also. There is a lovely lake front walk to the Boat terminal where you can get boat tours to various locations in Lake Maggoire.
The village just 5-10 min walk(uphill!) has several restuarants, small shops, bank, post office etc.
This was a lovely place to stay and holiday in. Located near the Swiss border if one wished to venture there. We did not hire a car on this holiday so thankfully the weather was nice. If the weather was poor a car would be needed.
The only thing which was disappointing for us was the pools were too cold to swim in. But I am sure a few more weeks of warm weather might solve that. Lovely deck & pools with spectacular views across lake Maggoire.
The staff were wonderful and most helpful. We were very grateful for a late check out as our flight was not until 10pm. So we got the 6pm train all the way to the airport...couldn't have been better.
If you like the outdoors, hills, lakes and mixing with the local people then this would make a lovely holiday destination.
