About Sabine Valkieser

We are a Dutch couple and have lived some years in this villa in Minusio. We moved to the south of France but have kept our villa for ourselves and for renting out, because we can not say goodbye to this wonderful place.

Sabine Valkieser purchased this villa in 2012

Why Sabine Valkieser chose Minusio

When we saw this villa we were immediately 'sold'. You can experience it for yourself, then you understand what we mean.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is fully equipped and extremely comfortable. But it's the view that is breathtaking and makes this is a very special place. In addition, Minusio has a microclimate and enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year, so you can have lunch outside in the sun almost all year round.

Villa Bella Vista is a lovely property. The view of Lake Maggiore is stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (parents and two adult children) was very comfortable in the Villa. The house is well-appointed. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. The weather during our stay was rainy so we did not use the outdoor veranda but it is furnished with comfortable furniture, sun umbrellas, an eating area and a grill. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms modern. We enjoyed our stay very much. The owner and property manager were responsive and easy to work with.

Ticino is the southernmost canton of Switzerland, with its mild Mediterranean climate, relaxed lifestyle and Italian flair, is a popular holiday destination. There is so much to discover, and for every age tastes. The Lago Maggiore region offers you beautiful, comfortable and cozy lidos; beautiful natural beaches and grassy banks where you can lie, swimming, reading, playing .... Due to the very clean water, this area is a popular destination. But what is there to do? Well you can go fishing, rent a boat, take a stroll along the shores of the lake, eating at many of the gourmet restaurants, have a drink on a terrace, walking, cycling, mountain biking or even bungee jumping or parasailing. But there are also to visit many beautiful castles, museums, galleries and shops. And in Italy a few steps away you can explore the north of Italy with Milan only 1 hour and 15 minutes drive away.

Ascona is often referred to as' the pearl of Lake Maggiore. It is most ideally situated resort on Lake Maggiore and has a beautiful boulevard with wide choice of restaurants and bars offering a wide choice of exclusive shops, boutiques, museums, art galleries and antique shops. The annual Jazz Ascona is an important jazz festival which is famous worldwide.

Locarno is the most charming town in Ticino with its chain of stores and cafes along the Piazza Grande. Today is the International Film Festival in Locarno one of the top events of Switzerland, Piazza Grande turned into the most beautiful theater in the world. In July there is also the "Moon and Stars" festival, an outdoor concert by world-famous pop stars on the Piazza Grande.

Cardada Cimetta Mountain: In Locarno take the funicolare and cable car to Cardada. Upstairs is an ambience of tranquility, with beautiful nature, for walks and excursions. The view over Lake Maggiore is overwhelming and unforgettable.

A visit to the botanical gardens on the Brissago Islands is a must for anyone staying in this region. The gardens have a variety of exotic and subtropical plants.

Vallemaggia: The Maggia valley offers 800 km of hiking trails to the mountain peaks and glaciers, along crystal clear mountain lakes, stone bridges and villages where time seems to have stood still. In the summer you can take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear river Maggia.

Centovalli: A trip with the Centovalli Railway is an unforgettable experience. From Locarno drive through deep gorges, past raging waterfalls until you reach the beautiful Domodossola in Italy after about 1.5 hours. You can then go further by train to the beautiful Stresa, then take the ferry back across Lake Maggiore ... a really relaxing day out.

Verzasca: The Verzasca Valley is lovely for walking, but very famous for its dam which featured in the James Bond film "Golden Eye" is. Only the sight of the dam and the views are worth it, and in the summer there are daily bungee jumping.

Markets in Ticino and Italy, there are weekly markets in Luino, Locarno, Ascona, Intra Canobbio and around Lake Maggiore with a special appearance that offer everything you need. Think a lot of clothes, shoes, bags, meat, fish, cheese, vegetables and fruit.
