Sopra il Lago 4 is a modern 3 bed apartment on the Eastern banks of Lake Maggiore with stunning views of the lake. The large open plan living area has been designed to make the most of the gorgeous views and 'bring the outside in'. The property is south westerly facing and the massive terrace which wraps around 3 sides of the apartment enjoys the sun all day long. It is located within walking distance of the small village of Brezzo di Bedero which boasts a lovely traditional pizzeria with outdoor seating. The property is also only minutes from the beach and lake. Located only a few miles from the bustling town of Luino, with its wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants, the property is also ideally situated for exploring all that Lake Maggiore has to offer from Locarno in the North to Stresa in the South. It's also only an hours train ride into Milan city centre. Verona is also easily accessible from the apartment.

About Jo Mackay (Bookings For You Ltd)
I am a mother with 2 children, age 12 & 15 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 12 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy through my site (Bookings For You). I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.
Why Jo Mackay (Bookings For You Ltd) chose Bedero
When we first visited the Italian Lakes in 2007, this was the property that we rented. We fell in love with the area during our stay at Sopra il Lago hence why it is such a pleasure to manage it for the owners now. The apartment is just wonderful, especially the views and outdoor space which is exceptional. Our children were 4 and 1 at the time and it was a great space for them. Our 4 year old particularly enjoyed the hot tub as did we - you could spend hours either in the hot tub or on the terrace just looking at the view. The interior living space is brilliantly furnished in a modern, contemporary style.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is ideally located in a beautiful peaceful spot yet only a few minutes walk up the road is the village of Brezzo di Bedero. This has a great traditional pizzeria which has outdoor tables...perfect for a night when you want to eat out and be able to have a few drinks without needing to order a taxi. The outdoor space in this apartment is exceptional, wrapping around 3 sides of the property. The kitchen is the best equipped I've seen in a rental property and it's equipped with everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Satellite TV, DVD with DVD library, WI FI access free of charge and cot and highchair can be provided if you have little ones.

Perfect place to relax
The apartment is perfect for a relaxing holiday.It is very well equipped and beautifully clean and luxurious. The outside decked area has fabulous views of Lake Maggiore and many an hour was spent out there. The area provides a good base to see the rest of the lake villages vis the ferry and also we went to Milan and Lake Como by car - both about 1.5hrs away. There are activities for everyone, from golf to swimming to simply sitting people watching with a glass of prosecco.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you managed to try some of the fantastic watersports on offer during your stay too!
Sehr guter Blick auf den See, sehr gute Ausstattung der Wohnung, Lage etwas abseits
Die Ausstattung von Wohnung und Terrasse ist hervorragend. Man fühlt sich sofort wohl, merkt, dass die Wohnung auch vom Eigentümer benutzt wird.
Aufgrund der Lage in Brezzo di Bedero (direkt an Hauptstraße) ist der Lago Maggiore sowie Luino bzw. Germingnaga fußläufig nur sehr umständlich zu erreichen.
Agréable séjour sur le lac majeur
L'appartement est très bien situé avec une vue splendide sur le lac et il est bien équipé. Il est néanmoins à déplorer que la pièce qui est présentée comme la chambre n° 3 ne soit en réalité qu'une chambre d'appoint qui contient également la machine à laver, la chaudière et différents rangements. En fait, la location est idéale pour 4 personnes adultes.
Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I am so pleased you found the property to be well equipped and to have everything you needed during your stay. The apartment has 2 bedrooms with double beds. The 3rd bedroom has bunk beds and whilst these are adult sized beds, we would recommend that this room is better suited to children.

Many thanks for such a lovely review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we very much hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the near future.
Lovely view, modern guest house!
We´ve spent five days in this house in the late October. Fortunately we had very good weather. The view from the balcony or from the platform in Brezzo di Bedero is spectacular. Especially during sunset. The house was modern, the beds comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Supermarkets, restaurants and bars are also reachable with the car within 5-10 minutes. Overall a very pleasant stay and nothing to complain!
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback. Jo
Lake Maggiore boasts several lovely beaches. The nearest beaches to the property are no more than 5 minutes away by car at Brezzo di Bedero, whilst nearby Maccagno is one of the best beaches on the lake to enjoy watersports such as windsurfing, sailing and kitesurfing. Many towns around the lake also have their own lido with access to the lake as well as wonderful swimming pools. Of particular note are the lidos at Locarno, Lugano and Ascona.
Fly to Milan Malpensa: Approx 45 miles from the property. See Easyjet and Monarch for flights from LGW or BA for flights from LHR. Fly to Milan Bergamo: Transfer time approx 120 mins. Fly to Milan Linate: Transfer time approx 120 mins. A train service runs from Milan Central Station which will take you to Luino in 1-2 hours depending on the day and time of travel. A bus service will then take you from Luino to the apartment.
The village of Brezzo di Bedero is just a short stroll. Brezzo di Bedero is a lovely village with wonderful views. The borough of Brezzo di Bedero is most famous for its Roman basilica. There are some wonderful 15th and 16th century frescoes in the apse and on the triumphal arch. The 17th century organ is also of great interest. Every summer, it is the venue for several music concerts. The village has its own pizzeria with outdoor eating area. Shops and supermarkets are only about 1.5km away.
The property is perfectly placed for visiting Luino, Cannobio, Cannero, Stresa, Ascona & the Borromean Islands. A great day out is the Lake Maggiore Express by boat up to Ascona & Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps then connect to Stresa & back by boat to Luino. Also in Switzerland, Valle Verzasca is worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in Goldeneye. The setting is idyllic. Como is just a 45 min drive. Lake Como enjoys its own ferry service & features Bellagio & Varenna plus Villa Carlotta. In the other direction, Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes. It's only a 45 min drive from Lugano & the Monte Salvatore funicular. There is a beautiful lido here too which I would recommend. The brand new lido in Locarno (opened Oct 2009) is also superb.
Or you can catch a train into Milan & go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie & Da Vinci's painting of 'The Last Supper.' If you're more of a sports fan, you can take a tour of San Siro stadium.
For cheaper shopping, Luino boasts the biggest weekly market in Europe. Or you could have a look at Foxtown, an outlet centre where the most famous brands offer their products at factory prices.
The nearest beaches are no more than 5 mins away, whilst nearby Maccagno is one of the best spots on the lake to enjoy watersports.
Val Veddasca is ideal for hiking. The scenery & nature is fabulous. Most of the nearby mountains also have tracks for mountain bikes.
The area offers plenty to do for children - Swissminiatur, the Alprose Swiss chocolate factory & the European Museum of Transport. Monte Tamaro is a great place with an alpine bob sleigh & the longest flying fox in Switzerland! Or you could try your hand at falconry or visit a safari park! There is a huge waterpark near Milan.
