About the property

Apartment in Lesa, Italian Lakes: Wifi. Fully Sound Proofed. Private Terrace. Lake views

This is an absolutely stunning luxury apartment situated on Lake Maggiore in the Italian Lakes. Just a few minutes drive from the lakeside, the apartment has been furnished to an extremely high standard, providing luxurious self catering accommodation in this beautiful part of Italy. Inside, the property has 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and open plan living and dining area. Guests enter the property from the terrace which enjoys stunning lake views. This terrace is equipped with contemporary sofas and chairs with a table for al fresco dining. The views from the terrace are just incredible. Guests can view 180 degree views of Lake Maggiore. Once inside, guests will find themselves in the open plan living and dining area. This is immaculately furnished to an incredibly high standard, using BoConcept furniture. There is also a Blue Ray DVD player, sound system and flat screen TV. A cupboard provides storage for any coats. There is a beautiful wooden dining table with chairs for 6 which is arranged alongside a stunning feature fireplace, perfect for those staying during the Winter months. The kitchen is at the front of the property, adjacent to the living area and with a door leading directly to the terrace. This is a beautiful room, with polished stone worktops and top of the range appliances. Another door leads off the living area to a large utility room with washing machine and dryer. Both bedrooms in the property are beautifully furnished and provide a luxurious place to retire to each evening. There are 2 bathrooms, one with bath tub and the other with shower. The property was completely renovated a year ago to an exceptionally high standard. There is an apartment above this property however, the apartment was fully sound proofed and insulated during the renovations so guests won't hear any noise from other properties. There are just 4 apartments in the building in total so the location is peaceful and quiet. Unfortunately, due to the height of the terrace railings, the property is not suitable for children.

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 2014

Why Jo Mackay chose Lesa

I love this property. This is a great property in a quiet, peaceful location just a few minutes drive from the lakeside. It is one of just 4 apartments in this location.

What makes this apartment unique

This property really does offer an exceptional level of accommodation. It has been beautifully furnished using the highest quality furnishings, including furniture from BoConcept and other such high end stores. The owners went to great lengths to ensure that it's a relaxing place to stay including fully sound proofing the apartment to ensure that guests do not hear any sound from the adjacent property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"The flat was lovely, beautifully decorated and spotless. I can't think of many suggestions for improvement - perhaps more cleaning products or a mop would help with day to day tidying up?" J Telfer Smith

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.
