Luxury villa in the Italian Lakes. Private swimming pool. Stunnng lake views.

Overview

Property

Updated: 15-May-2016
Villa in Brezzo di Bedero, Lake Maggiore, Italy. WIFI. BBQ. Private pool & gardens.

As you enter the property, you come into a welcoming living area, equipped with comfortable sofas and chairs. There is a TV system with satellite channels, as well as plenty of books to read and enjoy. Doors lead through to a dining room with large wooden dining table. Doors lead through from here to a light and airy kitchen.

A flight of stairs leads to the main bedroom area. There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor. The first is the master bedroom which enjoys views over the nearby village. This room has an ensuite bathroom with large corner bath and 'his and her' sinks. The second bedroom on this floor is also a double room. With built in wardrobes on each side of the bed, there is ample storage for guests clothes and cases. Doors lead from this bedroom to a lovely balcony area. There is a bathroom opposite. There is also an office on this floor. The desk is positioned to make the most of the dramatic lake views which is certainly a pleasant distraction from work! At the end of the landing on this floor doors open out to a balcony area overlooking the pool and gardens.

Up a second flight of stairs, guests will find 2 more bedrooms. One is a suite with double bed as well as a separate living area. The other is a double bedroom. Please note that these rooms are built into the eaves of the property but there is plenty of ceiling height for even taller visitors. There is also a third bathroom on this floor, again with corner bath.

There is a separate dependence just a few steps from the main villa. This has it's own large living area. Doors from the living area lead off to 2 bedrooms (one double room and 1 single room), a bathroom with corner bath and small kitchen. It's an ideal arrangement for those staying with extended family, or with friends, allowing different groups to enjoy privacy whilst still holidaying as part of a larger group.

The outside areas of the property are extensive measuring nearly 3000 square metres. Gardens surround the property and are set over at least 5 levels. The pool is heated to a pleasant temperature and is set in front of the house, making the most of the spectacular views. There are plenty of loungers for lazy days in the sun. There is also a superb covered terrace, equipped with BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining. This has again been positioned to make the most of the panoramic views. The gardens are full of mature trees and shrubs providing welcome shade in the hot Summer months.

There is a full time gardener tending the gardens. He will also maintain the pool daily, and ensure that loungers and towels are laid out for guests by the pool each day. A housekeeping service is also provided with a daily maid service of 1-2 hours. Additional housekeeping can be provided at a rate of 15 euros per hour.

About the Owner

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.

Further Details:

The villa is perfectly placed for visiting Luino, Cannobio, Cannero, Stresa, Ascona & the Borromean Islands. A great day out is the Lago Maggiore Express by boat up to Ascona & Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps then connect to Stresa & back by boat to Luino.

Also in Switzerland, Valle Verzasca & Valle Maggia are worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in Goldeneye. The river is fantastic to swim in & the setting is idyllic.

Como is just a 45 min drive. Lake Como enjoys its own ferry service and features Bellagio, Varenna & Villa Carlotta.

In the other direction, Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes.

It's a 45 min drive from Lugano & the Monte Salvatore funicular. There is a beautiful lido here too which I would recommend. The brand new lido in Locarno (opened Oct 2009) is also superb.

Or you can catch a train into Milan city centre & go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie & Da Vinci's painting of 'The Last Supper.' Or 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 international brands offer their products at factory prices.

The nearest beaches are no more than 5 mins away, whilst nearby Maccagno is one of the best spots on the lake to enjoy watersports.

Val Veddasca is ideal for hiking. The scenery and nature is fabulous. Most of the nearby mountains also have tracks for mountain bikes.

The area offers plenty to do for children - Swissminiatur, a Swiss chocolate factory and the European Museum of Transport. Monte Tamaro is a great place with an alpine bob sleigh and the longest flying fox in Switzerland! Or you could try your hand at falconry or visit a safari park! In the summer, there is a huge waterpark near Milan.

Please ask for more details.

Facilities

From the Owner

This really is the sort of property that you will find it hard to tear yourself away from to go and see anything of the area! Both the interior and exterior are stunning.... The gardens are extensive and are extremely well kept, whilst the pool is a great place to either sit and sunbathe or to enjoy a spot of swimming in. The views are phenomenal and it's unusual to find a property that enjoys such 360 degree views, with panoramic views of the lake on one side and views of the picturesque village of Brezzo di Bedero on the other.
