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

My family and I bought a property on Lake Maggiore - it's where we fell hook, line and sinker in love with the country! It's just an amazing area to holiday in, with something for all ages to enjoy from babies and toddlers to teens, parents and grandparents.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of these apartments is particularly good. Right on the lakeside, within walking distance of beaches and watersports, there is also a cafe and bar on site as well as an excellent restaurant, serving modern Italian cuisine. There are plenty of other, more traditional eating establishments within a short walk. It is also possible to walk to the boat terminal, where you can catch a boat to all the other towns and villages on the lake. Whilst I always recommend hiring a car to make the most of your stay, this is actually one place where you could get about without one.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Our holiday was fabulous, thank you! The apartment was lovely - very spacious, great view, and super comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the week - the only down side was that we weren't staying for longer! " McGrath family

"We had a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The apartment and complex were excellent. Using, and sitting by, the pool overlooking the lake was quite spectacular! The staff at the complex were very pleasant, extremely good and couldn’t have been more helpful." S Nicol

"Just wanted to say thanks for all your help in booking our holiday. We all had a fabulous time, the place is magical and very relaxing just what we all needed. Thanks again and would definitely recommend to family and friends." Donna

We had a wonderful stay in this property. It was clean and organised.

The children loved playing in the pool even though it was a touch chilly!

The ladies in the office were extremely helpful and spoke good English.

We will be back.

The apartment was exactly as portrayed in the on line photographs and the listing was accurate. The apartment was very clean with an extremely well equipped kitchen. It was a real home from home. The grounds and pool area were immaculate and the maintenance staff and office staff both friendly and efficient. Jo, the owner, is really great, answers questions promptly and even provided us with ideas of places to visit in and around the Lake.

We travelled extensively around the Lake but there was enough to do locally if one wants to stay in one place, although it is very quiet. If teenagers are go to it would probably be best to head for a busier part of the Lake. We used a local restaurant, sorry can't remember the name, on the right hand side of the road heading towards Luino, great food and full of local Italians. Always a good sign I think!

We hired a car and found the roads to be good and the traffic fairly light. Beware the motorbikes though. The drivers appears to have a death wish!

All in all we had a great time and I would recommend this owner and her apartment.

The apartments are situated right on the lakeside and the beach at Maccagno is a short stroll away. The beach here 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 lake access and wonderful swimming pools. Of note are those at Locarno, Lugano and Ascona.


Fly to Milan Malpensa: approx 45 miles from the property. Easyjet and Monarch fly from LGW.

Fly to Milan Bergamo: transfer time approx 120 mins.

Fly to Milan Linate: transfer time approx 120 mins.

A train service runs from either Milan Malpensa airport or from Milan Central Station which will take you to Luino or Maccagno in 1-2 hours depending on the day and time of travel. A taxi service or boat can then take you from Luino to the apartment. It is within a walk of Maccagno station.


The centre of Maccagno is a short walk away. The village has a selection of bars and restaurants, an icecream shop, cafe and newsagents. There is also a superb restaurant on site serving modern Italian cuisine as well as a cafe where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or an aperitif before dinner. The cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the lake. The boat terminal is also within walking distance, where you can catch a boat to the other villages on the lake.

Further Details:

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 and Locarno where you take the '100 Valley' train into the Swiss Alps then connect to Stresa and 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 and features Bellagio and 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 and go shopping. It's a short metro train ride to Santa Maria delle Grazie and 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.

Nearby Maccagno is 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, the Alprose 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! There is a huge waterpark near Milan.
