Late Spring in the Italian Lakes

5 of 5
The views from the villa over Lake Maggiore were wonderful. The gardens were well kept and were complemented by the garden furniture which we used for breakfast every morning, most often to the call of a cuckoo. The villa was clean, well-appointed and all the rooms were spacious, with shutters to reduce the heat during the day. It was situated well away from any noise of traffic but only a ten minute walk from Ranco and a short drive from a well-stocked supermarket. The swimming pool was secluded and free of leaves or other garden debris. It was furnished with a parasol and sun loungers on a clean tiled surround. All in all, the villa was ideal for a relaxing family holiday and proved to be a good base from which to visit places of interest on and around the lake.
