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!!!
