There is also a superb covered terrace, equipped with BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining. This has again been positioned to make the most of the panoramic views. The gardens are full of mature trees and shrubs providing welcome shade in the hot Summer months. The hydrangeas are stunning when in bloom and there are rows upon rows of scented laurels. The entire garden is fenced, ensuring absolute privacy for guests. There is a full time gardener tending the gardens. He will also maintain the pool daily, and ensure that loungers and towels are laid out for guests by the pool each day.

The villa is situated in the sought after village of Brezzo di Bedero. You can walk into the lovely village of Brezzo di Bedero. Whilst small there is a little play park here as well as a great pizzeria which is very popular with the locals! Otherwise, for a greater range of restaurants and amenities, it's just a few minutes drive down the hill to the lakeside. Here there is a large Carrefour supermarket as well as a range of smaller shops and restaurants to choose from.
A note from Jo
This is a stunning property. It almost reminds us of a traditional dolls house in its style and it's a wonderful place for large groups of family and friends to holiday together. The owners are passionate gardeners and spend much of their time in the run up to the rental season in ensuring that the gardens will be immaculately presented for guests whether staying in the Spring, Summer or Autumn.
