The 17th century villa overlooks the lake directly with private beach and has charm from a bygone era for couples and families. Our romantic rooms also have WIFI and SAT TV and air conditioning. The rooms all have double beds with luxury private bathrooms. The Summerhouse and Colonial rooms are fully equipped with kitchens,refrigerators and washing machines(self catering also) The large Colonial room is ideal for couples with young children. All the rooms face the lake with great views and are only a 5 minute walk into our fishing village of Solcio where you will find bars, cafes and restaurants close to the marina. You hosts are Gary and Jenny Thomas who are well travelled and know how special it is to feel at home away from home.

From the views (stunning!) to the quaint (but spacious!) rooms, and the incredible surroundings...all outstanding. But most importantly, and making this a most special visit to Lago Maggiore, are Gary and Jenny. These generous and caring hosts know no boundaries when providing you with the best, and friendliest, service imaginable. There is simply nothing that one could say is missing from this amazing stay. We will be back!

Heaven on earth!

We've just returned from a stay at this little bit of heaven on earth! A visit to Villa san Antonio should not be missed if you are planning a trip to Lake Maggiore. Our stay from start to finish was absolutely faultless. Dear Jenny & Garry are such lovely hosts, welcoming their guests with a genuine warmth and generosity you would most definately fail to find in in any top hotel. Attention to detail to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay is certainly achieved. One highlight was waking to the beautiful lake view through wide open windows with the fragrance of jasmine flowers wafting on the air, all this without even getting out of bed.

posto fantastico

We spent a lovely week at the villa in late August this year.- We had first planned to stay there for only 2-3 days, but decided to stay a whole week. We chose the Summer House and were very happy with our choice. Amazing views from your private balcony and very cute inside. Our breakfasts, served on a beautiful patio with Lago Maggiore below us, were lovingly prepared by our hosts and simply delicious. Reaching Solcio was super-convenient: We arrived at Milan (Malpensa Airport) where we had booked a direct air-conditioned bus to Solcio (less than an hour's ride at a very low rate). We found we did not miss having a car, as we could walk down to two good restaurants in Solcio and/or use local transportation to nearby Strea and Arona. Our hosts, Jenny and Gary, took excellent care of us during our stay and we will definitely return in the future.

Amazing...we'll be back!

My husband and had a wonderful stay at Villa San Antonio and we were sad that we had only booked one night before heading on to Verona. We were touched by the warmth and kindness Gary and Jenny showed us. What better way to start the day than with a swim followed by a scrumptious breakfast with a gorgeous view! We look forward to coming back and spending more time with you both...maybe with some music at the piano bar?! Thank you for everything!
