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

Customer Reviews

Overall experience was very good. We all loved the views and the villa mostly ticked all 8 of our boxes.
Enjoyed Most:
The view - it was magnificent , outstanding and exceptional .
Enjoyed Least:
The location from Meina village although it may well only be 1 km was very steep roads coming back. This said we still had a fabulous time and made the most if the villa by eating in most if the time looking at the incredible view of the lake.
Surrounding Area:
The scenery was just so wonderful. Waking up to that view each day made us all feel great and chilled. We all went on the day trip to Lugano in Switzerland. Boat home was amazing. We also drove to Lake Orta which was about 40 kilometres away. We wanted to take our pals there because we had been before and it is a charming little place. We visited the little Island of Silence by little tender in the middle of the lake. It was a great day out and we all said we would like to re-visit this little gem in the future.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Meina - yes it was within walking distance on paper which was one if the briefs we all wanted when looking for a villa. Sadly it was just too difficult a trek on the way back to walk it more than once which was a little disappointing as we usually like to eat out in the local villages a couple of times during the week. There was possibly one man taxi service but with there being 8 of us it wasn't practical.
Tips or Restaurants:
You will need plenty of mosquito spray, and bite creams. You don't need towels of any kind as there are both bathroom and poolside towels. There is a hair dryer in each bedroom. There is only one pillow per person so if like us you like two, request in advance. The owner is very welcoming and friendly and accommodating . We arrived to milk, pasta, homemade Napoli sauce in the fridge for our first night and a bottle of prosecco which was lovely and made us feel very welcome.
Yes and we still got lost. The road signs in Italy generally are not great. Just make sure your on the auto-strada going towards Milan and not Lake Como! (We flew into Bergamo)
Check In Out:
No everything was fine.

Enjoyed Least:
No complaints.
Surrounding Area:
The town was sweet and the lake area was easily accessible from the house.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Meina...steep hill but close.
Tips or Restaurants:
Be aware that the market and shops close in the afternoons in Meina. Shop early mornings.

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.
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.
