A lovely Villa with beautiful views across Lago Maggiore. John and Vanda made us very welcome.
We had a 10 day stay at Villa Panoramica which was an ideal length of time to enjoy Lake Maggiore. The villa is about 1 mile (20 minute walk) outside Baveno and although we had hired a car, with parking in Baveno being difficult/expensive if you are there all day, we walked down in to the town on a regular basis.
The villa is a 2 floor 'apartment', beautifully appointed with views across the village to the lake and the Borromean Islands. We spent every morning and most evenings sat on the balcony enjoying the view. Downstairs there is a lounge/dining room, well provided for kitchen and bathroom/utility room. The small spiral stair takes you upstairs to the bedrooms and bathroom. There is one bedroom with double bed, but the second bedroom has a 3/4 bed so would be small for two adults. There is also a fold-out guest bed. The apartment has virtually everything you might need. It is worth being aware there is no air-conditioning. There is a fan, so it was fine for us in mid-June, but by August it might feel very hot at night. If you are driving, there is on street parking outside or – if your car is not too large - a garage in the secure parking area under the apartments.
Villa Panoramica provided a great base for us to explore Lake Maggiore. Baveno is a lakeside small town, but the ferry and rail service provide good connections to the surroundings area. There is a good supermarket open ‘til late a short way out of the town, but with smaller supermarkets and a lovely Fruit & Veg shop in the centre. There are plenty of good restaurants around, as well as some (Osteria Mercato in Stresa) amazing ones! John and Vanda who are the owners and live next door would be happy to advise.
Overall we had an amazing holiday and I would thoroughly recommend Villa Panoramica as a place to stay.
Immaculate apartment overlooking Lake Maggiore
Spacious and comfortable apartment in quiet location above Baveno. Stunning lake and mountain views from balcony and main bedroom.
Stayed here last summer on a recent tour of Italy. This home was a gem. Exactly as we expected based on the photographs on the site (always a relief when selecting a home over the internet!) The team that handled the booking were professional and efficient and the home itself ticked all the boxes. View, location, layout plus the weather was kind! The village has some great bars and restaurants and is also close to Stresa ( a little more touristy but worth a visit nonetheless) A visit to the islands is also a must! We will definitely return.
Excellent apartment in beautiful location
The apartment is in a lovely quiet area with stunning views over Lake Maggiore. It's in excellent condition, very clean and comfortable and is well equipped. The main bedroom is an excellent size with a lovely comfortable bed, excellent storage and beautiful views of the lake. The owners family were very friendly and helpful. They gave us great advice for places to eat and where to visit. We would definitely recommend this apartment and the location. We hope to visit again.
Appartement moderne et correctement meublé et équipé. Literie confortable. Une place de parking est dédié à l'appartement, mais nous n'avons pas pu en bénéficier pour cause de véhicule trop grand ( Renault Scénic) Des places de stationnement gratuit à proximité immédiate de l'appartement étaient toujours disponibles, cela n'a donc pas été gênant. Le Wifi n'a pas fonctionné ( impossibilité de se connecter avec l'identifiant de connexion mentionné sur le boitier à l'intérieur du logement )
Special interest holidays:
Baveno is ideally situated on the shores of Lake Maggiore to explore the beautiful Borromean islands of Isola Pescatori, Isola Bella and Isola Madre by ferry. The view over Lake Maggiore from the winding drive up the mountainside is simply stunning. There are some excellent local restaurants within walking distance of the apartment such as Siddharta - for that romantic, special meal, La Posta - in the town square and Il Gabbiano in old Baveno. There's also L'inContro on the lake edge for a coffee or snack at lunchtime, or whilst waiting for your ferry. Just a short drive or ferry to Stresa and you'll find narrow cobbled streets with pavement cafe's, restaurants and shops, or take a leisurely drive along the lake road and discover Feriolo, Belgirate and Arona. With national parkland and surrounding mountains there's plenty of breathtaking walks, vineyards and Italian architecture to enjoy. One visit is just not enough - we guarantee you'll fall in love with this area!
