Villa Bella Vista - as the name suggests the house provided beautiful views and a spacious home from which to enjoy them. The owners, and those who assist in the running of the property, were warm and welcoming.
My only caveat is that there are steep stairs leading to the villa which might not be suitable for those with mobility problems. However, this didn’t apply to us and I would definitely stay there again.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The property has a lot of space as the 3rd bedroom is set slightly off from the main part of the villa, so it meant that that my parents could have some privacy from grand children!
You need a car really, but there is great views if you venture up the steps running to Orselina to the shop for fresh croissants and it is an easy (!) 800 steps down to Locarno. Really well located for the scenic railway, fenicular and cable car.
It is very relaxing to sit out on the balcony in the evening and watch the lights on the lake.
