About Jo Mackay (Bookings For You Ltd)
I am a mother with 2 children, age 9 & 12 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 9 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 website - 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 Maccagno
Lake Maggiore is one of my favourite places in Italy. There's nothing better than waking up in the morning, looking out of the window, and seeing spectacular views of the lake. It's also a great place for people of all ages....there is plenty to do whether you're 2 years old or 80 years old! It's a perfect location for walkers too with some great hikes starting right from the front door of the property.
What makes this Apartment unique
This is a lovely property in a location that means you will feel like you really are experiencing the real Italy. The views of the lake are spectacular and it has a garden shared with one other apartment, perfect for lazy days in the sun. It's also great all year round - only 20 minutes from the ski resort at the top of the mountain but only 12 minutes from the lakeside in the summer.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Well equipped flat with great view over Maggiore the only down side being the 6km of narrow roads with hairpin beds to get there.
Etwas Außergewöhnliches für Natur- und Ruheliebhaber
In einem historischen Bergdorf mit grandioser Aussicht geschmackvoll eingerichtete ruhige Wohnung, in der alles vorhanden ist, inclusive gesichertem Terrassengarten auf 3 Ebenen 3 Etagen tiefer mit der Wohnung untendran, die bei uns nicht besetzt war. Man sollte für die verwinkelte Wohnung im autofreien Dorfkern gut zu Fuß sein und sicher 15 Minuten die schmale Serpentinenstraße fahren können. Parkplätze waren immer welche frei. Der Lebensmittelladen und das Restaurant sind seit einem Jahr geschlossen. Es gibt einen kleinen Imbisswagen in den Sommermonaten mit Eis und Snacks. Keine 5 Sterne nur deshalb, weil die Federkernmatratzen etwas unbequem sind, wenn man Kaltschaum oder Latex gewohnt ist. Der Garten und die Außenmöbel waren relativ ungepflegt, kann aber auch durch die Natur der Berge kommen, 10 Katzen im Nachbarhaus, Gewitter und des nachts regelmäßig 3 Wildschweine auf den unteren 2 Ebenen des riesigen Gartens, was uns eher amüsiert hat, weil sie so gern auch die sicher mit Törchen eingezäunte obere Terrassenebene erobert hätten.
Die Wohnung ist ideal für Wanderfreudige, Mountainbiker, Ruhesuchende, da die Berge dahinter viele fantastische Aussichten garantieren und der zahlreich vorhandene öffentliche Seezugang in Maccagno eine herrliche Abkühlung bietet. Sehr nette und schnelle Vermietung durch Jo Mackay.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a comprehensive review. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Grandioser Blick und voll ausgestattete Ferienwohnung
Der Weg zur Wohnung geht über eine sehr kurvige, teils enge Straße. In dem idyllischen Dorf sind dann noch einige Meter vom Parkplatz zur Wohnung zurück zu legen. Das lohnt sich, vor allem wegen des fantastischen Blicks über den Lago Maggiore.
In der Wohnung hatten wir alles notwendige für eine 4 köpfige Familie, auch Waschmaschine und Geschirrspüler.
Thank you for your kind review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and made the most of those wonderful lake views!
Lake Maggiore boasts several lovely beaches. The nearest beaches to the property are 12 minutes drive away at Maccagno, 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: The nearest airport is Milan Malpensa which is approx 60 miles from the house. Easyjet flies here from London, Bristol or Edinburgh, or you can travel by BA or from London Heathrow, Monarch from London Gatwick or Flybe from Birmingham and Manchester.
Fly to Milan Linate: Transfer time from the airport is approximately 120 mins. Easyjet and BA fly to Linate from London.
Fly to Milan Bergamo: Transfer time from the airport is approx 120 mins. Car hire is essential.
The property is situated in the heart of the old village of Campagnano, an idyllic mountain village just 10 minutes drive from the lakeside. The streets of the old town are very narrow so no cars can pass through, making it extremely peaceful. There is a restaurant just 200 metres from the property - Ristorante Pozzo.
The villa is perfectly placed for visiting Luino, Cannobio, Cannero, Stresa, Ascona & the Borromean Islands. A great day out is the Lago 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 & Valle Maggia are worth a visit. You can visit the Verzasca Dam which features in Goldeneye. The river is fantastic to swim in & the setting is idyllic.
Como is just an hours drive. Lake Como enjoys its own ferry service and features Bellagio, Varenna & Villa Carlotta.
In the other direction, Orta San Giulio is definitely one of the prettiest villages on any of the Italian Lakes.
It's 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 city centre & go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie & Da Vinci's painting of 'The Last Supper.' Or 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 international brands offer their products at factory prices.
The nearest beaches at Maccagno are no more than 10 mins away and are one of the best spots on the lake to enjoy watersports.
Val Veddasca is ideal for hiking. The scenery and nature is fabulous. Most of the nearby mountains also have tracks for mountain bikes.
The area offers plenty to do for children - Swissminiatur, a Swiss chocolate factory and the European Museum of Transport. Monte Tamaro is a great place with an alpine bob sleigh and the longest flying fox in Switzerland! Or you could try your hand at falconry or visit a safari park! In the summer, there is a huge waterpark near Milan.
