About The Experience
With spectacular views of Lake Maggiore from the patio and pool area, this villa is well suited to 3 couples or a family looking for an Italian Lakes getaway. The town of Meina, with restaurants, shops and ferry service is 1 km away, and Arona, with a wonderful lakeside promenade and a train station, is 4 km away. In addition, there are several golf courses in the area.
Location Description

Overall:
We loved Villa Maggiore. The beautiful home was a perfect setting for a family and friends reunion. We spent most of our time sitting out on the back porch catching up and taking in the incredible view. It could not have been a better choice for all of us.
Enjoyed Most:
One of my favorite parts of the house was the incredible kitchen that was so well stocked. The house felt very spacious and bright with so many places to sit and take in the views.
Enjoyed Least:
Driving back and forth to town.
Surrounding Area:
I loved visiting the Borromean Islands, incredibly beautiful and magical. The area was very peaceful and it was easy to travel from town to town. We also went to visit Lake Orta for the day and visited Isola San Giulio. I traveled all over Italy after visiting this area and some of these islands were my best memories.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Meina was the closest town but the hill was very steep coming back up to the villa from town so it is walking distance but a strenuous one. We chose to drive most of the time.
Tips or Restaurants:
I loved the small grocery store in Meina. It had most of what we needed and a great selection of cheeses and meats. The bakery across from it was very yummy too. The kitchen was well equipped so it was a joy to cook there.
Directions:
We used our GPS quite a bit because the streets can be tricky there until you get used to lay of the land.
Check In Out:
The owners met us upon arrival and were so helpful in seeing that we got settled and introduced to the property. You could tell that they take much pride and care of their property and making sure that their visitors are satisfied. At check out the owner met us at the house to gather keys and collect cleaning fees for cleaning service. I ended up forgetting an item at the villa and the owners sent it to me at my next stop in Italy. We were so impressed with the care and quality of our stay and services.

Overall:
Lovely home. We enjoyed the outdoor area and the view immensely. The house was very comfortable and well-equipped.
Enjoyed Most:
The outdoor area and the view.
Enjoyed Least:
There was some neighborhood noise from lawnmowers and leaf blowers.
Surrounding Area:
The lake is gorgeous. One day we took a boat to two of the islands. Another day we took the hydrofoil up the lake to Switzerland. The small town of Meina was fun to visit. The market has most of what we needed and the bakery had wonderful bread and eating our last night at Cin Cin was a real treat.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Meina. We drove since the hike back up the hill would have been too strenuous. We did enjoy walking up hill from the villa to Dagnente, a great little village. The restaurant had wine for one Euro and they brought us potato chips while we sat on their terrace overlooking the lake. We ended up going to a large Super Mercato south of Arona for major shopping.
Tips or Restaurants:
Don't miss Cin Cin in Meine. They serve very good wine and ample appetizers on their outdoor terrace.
Directions:
We brought our own GPS with European maps. I wouldn't have wanted to try to navigate without it.
Check In Out:
Very easy check in and check out. They gave us homemade pasta and sauce for our first night's meal which was wonderful.
