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 apartment in 2015

Why Jo Mackay chose Lake Maggiore West

I love this area of Italy. It's where my family and I holiday 2-3 times a year and it's an area that our children love. We love nothing more than spending days lazing on the lakeside and swimming in the lake waters. To have a beach area right across from the apartment to do this is a real bonus!

What makes this apartment unique

This is an exceptional value property, whether it's in the height of the Summer holidays or in a quiet week off season.

Great villa - had a wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

Excellent communication during reservation and on arrival. Pictorial directions to villa were a great idea and very simple to follow. Villa was immaculate, exactly as described and very very comfortable. Some great touches like condiments, dishwasher tabs, cleaning supplies, rubbish bags in abundance for as and when required.

Magnificent views from windows was something I looked forward to each and every morning.

Good supply of literature and advice given regarding the local area, restaurants, sightseeing, attractions etc.

Any downsides ??

- a little remote for restaurants etc. driving required

- Don't expect the private beach to be exclusively private. Local fishermen treat it as there own in the evenings but are courteous and pleasant - ok if you can live and let live.

- Road outside is the main route between towns along the lake and can be noisy during day. Care is required as you pull out the driveway or crossing the road to the beach. You would definitely want your pet on a lead or to hold your child's hand. Having said that if you like watching motorbikes roar past, the kitchen is a great view point !!!!

Would we stay again ? Absolutely without hesitation, a splending week.

Big thanks to Kirstie for looking after our needs during the week.
