Villa Sereni is a large, modern, contemporary, 3 bedroom villa situated on the Eastern bank of Lake Maggiore, with stunning views across the lake. Set in a quiet hamlet, this luxury holiday home sleeps 6-8 and is set over 3 floors. A couple of peacocks live in the nearby trees and are often spotted on the terrace! It is very family friendly and there are plenty of games and toys for the younger family members to enjoy.

The villa is located within a 5 minute drive of the lakeside and only 3 miles north of the bustling lakeside town of Luino with its wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Less than 5 miles from the Swiss border, the villa also provides easy access to the Swiss towns of Lugano and Locarno. Lake Como is a one hour drive and trains run direct from Luino to Milan in an hour. You enter the property on the ground floor where there is a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area. This leads out onto a teak decked terrace with stunning lake views. Up one flight of stairs, there are 2 bedrooms - one double bedroom with private balcony with lake view and one twin bedroom with views to the countryside - as well as a modern family bathroom. Up another flight of stairs there is the fantastic master bedroom with kingsize bed. This has a large ensuite bathroom with walk in shower, his and her sinks and bath. There are two balconies on this floor, one with lake views and one with views to the hills. The property is fully equipped with all the mod cons guests could wish for including 3 flatscreen TVs, Blue Ray DVD player with DVD library, BOSE docking station and XBOX games console with selection of games. There is also a brand new Nespresso coffee machine in the property. The owners have also gone to great lengths to make the property family friendly, providing a travel cot, highchair and pushchair all free of charge. There is also a selection of toys, board games and children's DVDs. The property shares three parking spaces with the neighbouring property, Villa Caruso. The driveway down to the villa is very steep. As a result, if guests prefer, they can also park on the main road at the top of the hill.

The villa is located just outside the centre of Dumenza, a hillside village sitting above Lake Maggiore. Dumenza has a small supermarket as well as a small cafe / bar and restaurant. In the other direction at the bottom of the hill is Colmegna, a small but very pretty lakeside village. The nearest large town is Luino. Luino is a lakeside town that has seen massive improvements over the past 10 years. The lakefront has seen considerable investment. The lakeside shop facades have been restored and the old lakeside car park has been transformed into a beautiful lawned park area, the perfect setting to enjoy an evening passeggiata. Notably, Luino businesses don't shut down in the Winter due to its thriving local population. This is a stunning part of Italy, beautiful to enjoy all year round. There are a whole host of activities to enjoy from water sports and lake swimming in the Summer, to skiing in the Winter and with superb sightseeing opportunities on offer throughout the year.

A note from Jo

Villa Sereni is such a family friendly property. We love what it offers families to make their stay that little bit more comfortable. From a practical perspective, there is a cot, highchair and stroller, whilst for entertainment, there are plenty of games as well as an XBOX with games. We also love its peaceful location. There are few properties in the world where you share the terrace with a couple of peacocks, or where you will fall asleep listening to the waters flowing down the stream adjacent to the villa.

    Excellente hote, tres disponible pour toutes informations. La maison est située sur une colline au calme, conforme au descriptif, tres bien aménagée, bénéficiant d une tres belle vue sur le lac. Son accès peut impressionner dû à la difficulté de la pente. Pour information, il est obligatoire de prendre la voiture pour accéder au lac, commerces et restaurants.

    The house has an amazing view and is very well equipped. We found salt, pepper, enough toilet paper and tablets for the dishwasher, as well as a bottle of chianti and amaretti biscuits ! There are many different places to visit and things to do, all within a short drive. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this house !!
