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!

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.

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.

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!

What a find! The boyfriend had organised the flights so my job was the accommodation....it had to be something super special for our first time away together....and I FOUND IT! We stayed in the Summerhouse, which was a romantic little hideaway with a lovely terrace with views over the lake....it was pretty much exactly what you would want for a romantic get-away. On top of that we had such lovely hosts in Gary and Jenny, it was a real pleasure to meet them. We even had stunning weather and the Lake Maggiore area was a perfect place to go for lots of fun, swimming in the lake and loads of gelato. A fantastic find....but dont tell everyone as we would like to be able to go again and have our Summerhouse! Enjoy - you wont go wrong with this one!

We have spent only 1 night in this villa, but we'll never forget it. Arriving late, Jenny and Gary took time to have a glass with us and discuss friendly. Everything is great : the lasagnas prepared by Jenny for our dinner, the house, the balcony, the vue, the Gary's old cars, the music, the bed, the bathroom... But the best are Jenny and Gary. Adorable!!!

My brief time spent at Villa San Antonio was completely unforgettable - the views are spectacular, the surroundings sumptuous and the dining was an experience from beginning to end. Jenny and Gary envelop you into the fold and you'll never want to leave!! I can't wait to return...

We stayed at the Villa Sanantonio in 2010 and loved every minute. Gary and Jenny treated us like old friends and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was delicious, spectacular senery, lovely room and great boat trip on the lake. Can't wait to stay there again as it has become our favourite holiday destination.
