Lake Maggiore was the inspiration behind Bookings For You, after a wonderful family holiday on the lake back in 2007. We fell very much in love with the area after our weeks holiday on Lake Maggiore, going on to purchase a villa there and then to setting up a holiday rental company, specialising in villa rentals in the Italian Lakes. These days, we are as fond of the area as we ever were although our portfolio of rentals on Lake Maggiore has grown rather significantly from the handful of properties we had on the Bookings For You website when we launched! Given the choice now available, we thought we’d select some of our favourite villas on Lake Maggiore available to rent.
A firm favourite with our guests, Casa Casarini is a contemporary 3 bedroom property enjoying private use of a stunning infinity swimming pool and boasting incredible lake views. This is one of our most popular Lake Maggiore rentals and, not surprisingly, we see lots of guests returning year on year. Best of all, it’s suitable for absolutely everyone including wheelchair users.
Whilst we love swimming in the lake, we recognise that many people also prefer to have their own pool. Pools don’t get much better than the one at this 4 bedroom Lago Maggiore villa. Surrounded by mature gardens and with a stylish terrace adjacent where you’ll find plenty of loungers, this Italian villa rental is the perfect place to spend hours lazing in the sun! Inside, there are four large bedrooms, accommodating up to 10 guests in total along with an open plan living and dining room and separate lounge area which has doors out to a terrace area making the most of the lake views.
A luxurious and incredibly stylish 3 bedroom Lake Maggiore villa, Casa Belva ticks all the boxes! Not only will you find three incredibly stylish bedrooms and a stunning living space in the main villa, you’ll also have use of a separate pool house where you’ll find a second kitchen and living area along with a well equipped private gym. Whilst we recommend hiring a car for the duration of your stay, it’s a pleasant walk through the garden to the lakeside at Suna where you’ll find a good selection of restaurants, and just a short walk further to the lakeside at Pallanza where you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to shops and eateries.
Reminiscent of an idyllic childhood doll’s house, this villa in Brezzo di Bedero is a very special place to stay. Enjoying 360 degree views with the lake on one side and the village rooftops on the other, this luxury Italian Lakes villa is set in acres of grounds and offers guests absolute privacy. And yet, a stroll through the grounds will take you to a garden gate from where you can make your way to the heart of the village, home to a fantastic restaurant that’s extremely popular with the locals.
Another of our luxury Italian Lakes villa rentals, Villa Ermalinda offers everything. With a host of additional services available on request from housekeeping to catering and from babysitting to the services of a professional musician, guests will want for nothing during their stay. Younger family members will love the private pool, table tennis, basketball and table football whilst adults will love being able to wind down and chill out in their very own private spa and relaxation area.
Whilst renting a villa on the hillside above Lake Maggiore will reward you with the more impressive lake views, there is certainly something to be said for being lakeside. Villa Poseidon is one of our most popular lakeside villas. Newly renovated, this Porto Valtravaglia villa enjoys direct access to the lakeside beach, a short walk along which will take you to the heart of the village where you will find a selection of shops and restaurants and a popular weekly market. The interior decor is modern and contemporary and is designed to make the most of the lake views to the front which can be enjoyed not only from the large private terrace but also from the private jacuzzi that sits to one side of the villa.
Another lakeside villa but this time a little further along the lake in Ranco, this property has so much going for it! A large lawned garden gently slopes down to the lake where guests can swim or enjoy a variety of water sports, whilst just a short walk away are a handful of restaurants along with a village shop. Whilst some lakeside villas can be positioned on busy main roads meaning traffic noise can be a problem, the opposite is the case here. The road is quiet and guests can be assured of a relaxing stay whatever time of year this villa in Ranco.
A stylish property with a Scandinavian feel when it comes to the interior decor, this Lago Maggiore villa is set within a quiet, sought after residential neighbourhood. Divided into a 2 bedroom apartment above and 1 bedroom apartment below, it’s the perfect property for a multi-generation holiday allowing Granny and Grandad to enjoy some privacy, independence and peace and quiet whilst still enjoying a holiday with the rest of the family. And Mum and Dad don’t need to have to worry about the little ones waking up the whole house each morning!
Ever since setting up Bookings For You, we have intentionally worked to ensure that there is a property to suit every budget, group size and taste. And Villa Meina is the perfect property for those looking for a more traditional Lake Maggiore villa. With three good-sized bedrooms, open-plan living and dining area and well equipped kitchen, this villa in Meina provides plenty of space for a family to enjoy indoors, whilst outside, large private gardens mostly laid with lawns provide the perfect setting for lazy days enjoying each others company in the Italian sunshine. Just a minute’s walk down the lane, guests also enjoy access to a small private beach area which is shared with neighbouring residents, providing the opportunity to cool off in the refreshing lake waters. Even better, this villa on Lake Maggiore is also within walking distance of restaurants.
Occupying a charming spot within a rural hamlet on the hillside above the lake, with a mountain stream running down to one side and lake views to the front, Villa Sereni is a stylish, contemporary, family-friendly Lake Maggiore villa rental that is perfect for families. With a large private terrace as well as three additional balconies, two of which enjoy lake views, this is an opportunity to relax in each others company whilst only being a short drive from the nearest lakeside beaches.
