About Sabine Valkieser
We are a Dutch couple and have lived some years in this villa in Minusio. We moved to the south of France but have kept our villa for ourselves and for renting out, because we can not say goodbye to this wonderful place.
Sabine Valkieser purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Sabine Valkieser chose Minusio
When we saw this villa we were immediately 'sold'. You can experience it for yourself, then you understand what we mean.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is fully equipped and extremely comfortable. But it's the view that is breathtaking and makes this is a very special place. In addition, Minusio has a microclimate and enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year, so you can have lunch outside in the sun almost all year round.

Bella Vista Is bellisimo.
It is everything you might expect from the pictures and more. WE toured the mountains and lakes around Locarno. And came "home" every night to a beautiful setting with a glass of wine, made dinner in the well appointed kitchen and slept like babes. The lake is a magnificent backdrop to this beautiful home. You won't be disappointed at Villa Bella and you won't want to leave.
The villa felt like a home from home.
Villa Bella Vista - as the name suggests the house provided beautiful views and a spacious home from which to enjoy them. The owners, and those who assist in the running of the property, were warm and welcoming.
My only caveat is that there are steep stairs leading to the villa which might not be suitable for those with mobility problems. However, this didn’t apply to us and I would definitely stay there again.
Thank you for your kind words and I am glad you had a wonderful stay Pam! We love to have you over again some day.
Outstanding Home and Vistas
One of the best homes we have stayed in over 25 years of vacation rentals. The house is perfectly located and well appointed. Sabine was prompt in replying and helpful with suggestions of things to do and places to eat. Overall a wonderful vacation.
Villa Bella Vista is a lovely property. The view of Lake Maggiore is stunning.
Our family of four (parents and two adult children) was very comfortable in the Villa. The house is well-appointed. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. The weather during our stay was rainy so we did not use the outdoor veranda but it is furnished with comfortable furniture, sun umbrellas, an eating area and a grill. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms modern. We enjoyed our stay very much. The owner and property manager were responsive and easy to work with.

From Locarno drive through deep gorges, past raging waterfalls until you reach the beautiful Domodossola in Italy after about 1.5 hours. You can then go further by train to the beautiful Stresa, then take the ferry back across Lake Maggiore ... a really relaxing day out.
Verzasca: The Verzasca Valley is lovely for walking, but very famous for its dam which featured in the James Bond film "Golden Eye" is. Only the sight of the dam and the views are worth it, and in the summer there are daily bungee jumping.
