“A place to come back!”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The villa stands above the Lago Maggiore with breathtaking views along the lake and towards the mountains. We could sit all day long on the terrace an look at the landscape! The house ist perfect for two couples since there are two floors with their own living room, bedroom and bathroom. With the kitchen being fully equipped you have your dinner or grill party 'at home'. If you want to go out, Locarno and Ascona are just a few minutes away. Check In and Check Out were very friendly. Surely a place to come back!

“Breathtaking views and”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed with 2 other couples for 6 nights and what a wonderful stay . The villa is situated in a lovely residential area about a 10 minute drive from Locarno .

The Villa is as shown and does not disappoint . Luxurious and tastefully decorated and well equipped . Views from both levels and in particular the terrace off the upstairs living area are spectacular . Perfect to relax and enjoy the scenery .

Plenty to see and do in the area but the villa is so tasteful it is lovely to relax and enjoy this wonderful home .

I enjoyed the walk down to the Lake for a swim - only 8 minutes in each direction and also morning walks further along Minusio .

We ate out at a number of restaurants recommended by Sabine . On next visit would probably cook more and spend more time in the Villa .

Thank you Sabine for your prompt response to our queries and for sharing your home .

“Wonderful 80th Birthday”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My Husband & I decided to take Mum away for her 80th Birthday and we are so pleased we chose Bella Vista. This is a beautiful villa with breathtaking views over Lake Maggiore. The villa is well equipped and we cooked most evenings as eating out in Switzerland is expensive. Afterwards, we sat out on the terrace enjoying a glass of wine or two !!

Regarding food shopping, we would recommend Co-op or Migros situated a couple of miles drive away towards Locarno. Aldi in Switzerland is expensive and do not have the choice like the UK. Alternatively, go over the border to Italy.

For Mums special day, Sabine had recommended a few restaurants and we went with her suggestion of Villa D'Este at Lake Como. This place is absolutely wonderful. Expensive, but well worth it.

We had a wonderful time and highly recommend Bella Vista to couples and families.

“Absolutely Stunning and Luxurious”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We visited Villa Bella Vista with 4 adults and 2 children and had a fantastic time staying there. The views are breath-taking and the local town of Minusio and Locarno were full of activity with plenty of dining options available. The villa itself was very accommodating and luxurious, especially with the addition of 2 cots and 2 high chairs which was very helpful. We would definitely book again, highly recommended.
