Italian Lakes 3 bed villa








Villa Alba is a beautiful, modern, contemporary 3 bedroom villa situated on the Eastern shores of Lake Maggiore. The property is in a stunning location and enjoys wonderful 180 degree views up and down the lake. With private steps leading from the garden to the beach and lake waters, this truly is an idyllic setting for a holiday in the Italian Lakes.

The property is south westerly facing with 140 m2 of living space, a large balcony leading from 2 of the 3 bedrooms and a stone terrace and lawned garden area. It is perfectly placed for visting the lakeside towns and villages on Lake Maggiore but if you wanted to look further afield, Lake Como is only a 1 hour drive and trains run direct from Luino to Milan in an hour. Other cities such as Verona and Venice are also accessible from the property.
The holiday rental is located in the village of Portovaltravaglia which boasts a small market every Monday between 8 and 1, an icecream shop, cafe and newsagents. The village centre also boasts a couple of excellent restaurants serving both modern and traditional Italian cuisine. Guests can usually walk to the village along the beach (although the water level does prevent this at certain times during the Winter). There is another great Italian restaurant within a few metres walk of Villa Alba in the other direction.
The original owner spent 2 years renovating the property to an extremely high standard and has created a luxurious property with a homely, welcoming feel. The property comprises 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed whilst the second bedroom has a double bed. Doors from both bedrooms lead out on to a balcony with stunning lake views. The third bedroom has twin beds which can be converted to a double if required. There is an open plan living, dining and kitchen area which leads out onto the garden and terrace. The modern designer kitchen is extremely well equipped. A fire in the living room makes this the perfect place to stay all year round...what better place to relax after a hard day on the slopes! The TV in this room has wireless functionality making it possible for guests to watch channels such as Netflix and YouTube.
A table and chairs is provided in the garden for al fresco dining along with a couple of sunloungers. There is also a BBQ. The garden is fully fenced and gated. A gate leads down from the garden where guests can enjoy a beach area and direct access to the lake water. There is a buoy in the water should guests have a boat. This is available to use on request for an additional £150 per week. Please ask for more details.

The villa certainly met our expectations...

The villa certainly met our expectations. We have had a wonderful week. The only very slight criticism is that a microwave would be very useful.
