“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014


Having read the reviews of the Casa Bellavista and seen photographs of the property I had no hesitation in contacting the owners with a view to taking a holiday there with my wife. We were more than impressed by the way in which our enquiries were handled and looked forward to visiting the really beautiful area surrounding Stressa and Lake Maggiore.
The day soon arrived for our holiday and after a more than comfortable journey we arrived at the Casa Bellavista and knew straight away we were going to have a wonderful stay.
The cleanliness of the property and the very high standard of its modern fixtures and fittings immediately came to our attention. The overall style and decor only added to the charm of the place.
We thought nothing could get better but to our amazement the sublime breathtaking and panoramic views of Stressa and Lake Maggiore could be seen from the comfort of the property's extensive roof terrace. It was undoubtedly a truly remarkable and exhilarating experience.
The owners of the Casa Bellavista have obviously given very careful thought to the way in which their property has been equipped to ensure their guests thoroughly enjoy its comforts. It's definitely a little gem. We would certainly return.

“Amazing property in beautiful surroundings”

My husband and I stayed with friends at Casa Bellavista, what an amazing time we had. From the moment we opened the front door we all felt at home, the house is beautifully decorated and furnished to the highest standard. The overall feeling of this property is one of care and love; it has definitely been renovated by the owners Jonathan and Joanna to the highest standard without losing any of its charm and character.
Stresa is a fabulous area to visit and we would highly recommend it. There was nothing nicer than after a day of sightseeing to sit on the roof top terrace with a bottle of wine overlooking Lake Maggiore, MAGICAL!!!
A car is a necessity as the house is on a steep narrow windy road.

“Breathtaking inspiring views!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in April 2013

If you are considering visiting Lago Maggiore (and you definitely should as it is just stunning - one of my favourite places!) Casa Bellavista is a great option for your stay.

The location is excellent: up on the mountain ensuring stunning views of the Lago Maggiore. Please see my pictures - these were taken using my mobile, no filters used. that is just what you get. You will wake up everyday to breathtaking views. Very inspiring, very romantic:)

Stresa is central, and is a lovely typical Italian town. It is very close to Malpensa airport so I recommend you fly there and pick up a rental car to use during your stay.

The house owners are lovely and very caring, you can see how much they love this house in every detail. It does not feel like a rental house, it feels like home. They left lots of tips and suggestions in the house and answered every question promptly. The notes in the house tell you where to go, what to see, their favourite pizza... Very handy!

I stayed at Casa Bellavista a couple of times and will come back!

“Beautiful house, beautiful location, AMAZING views!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014 for a stay in April 2013

I cannot recommend Casa Bellavista highly enough! We had a wonderful holiday and can't wait to return. Aside from the truly stunning location of Lake Maggiore, staying here was the icing on the cake. My husband and I like nothing more than to relax on an evening with a good bottle of wine (or two!) and what made this holiday so wonderful was we got the opportunity to do that on the balcony of this house, whilst enjoying the simply stunning views of the lake and islands at the same time. The town of Stresa is just a short distance away and is a lovely place to have a meander and/or a great lunch/evening meal.

I have booked accommodation direct with the owners of properties before but I have to say that liaising with Joanna & Jonathan over our holiday made the experience even better. It is very apparent that Casa Bellavista is a much loved property/home and that they both want you to have the best experience possible whilst you are here. They provide tons of information and tips on how to get the most out of your stay.

“Home away from home”

This home is absolutely perfect in every way. The view is picture book and the closeness to the village of Stresa made it perfect. Every morning you wake with a panoramic view of Lake Maggiore from the kitchen, dining and living room. Then to top it all off, with a full moon you have that picture as well. There are not enough words to say what a great place this was for our vacation and working with the owners was the best part. They are like friends now.
