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 back in 2008 - 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

This is a wonderfully elegant apartment furnished with care and attention. The owners have cleverly maintained the character of the building whilst ensuring that it is fully equipped with everything you might need during your stay. The apartment has stunning lake views, a private terrace, balcony and garden from which to enjoy them and a restaurant within walking distance. What is more, it's in an ideal spot to explore all the best sights that the region has to offer - in Italy but close to the Swiss border.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"What a spectacular property it was. The property is the most luxurious self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. The views from the lounge, and all of the bedrooms is breath-taking as all look over the lake. The balcony view over Lago Maggiore and the vast garden area over 5 levels gave us lots of areas to explore. The journey and your route instructions were excellent, thank you. The holiday was great fun and the owners have obviously spent a fortune modernising it to a very high standard, so a big thank you to them." C Eadie

"First of all, we have nothing but positives to say about our stay in your villa. As others have commented, the reality is so much better than suggested by the web-site. We are already talking about return visits, so much did we enjoy our stay." A Schweitzer

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.

The property is situated in the heart of the old village of Campagnano, an idyllic mountain village just 12 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.

Further Details:

The apartment 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.

Please ask for more details.
