The apartment is situated in the district of Carciano in Stresa and forms part of a small private Italian residence with security gates and private parking. A few minutes walk will take you to the local post office, supermarket, church and down to the Carciano Port where the lake front provides local taxi boats to visit the beautiful Isole Madre, Pescatore and Isola Bella. In the Port there is a newly built public pool for swimming and sunbathing (ready, Summer 2013), where you can almost touch the lake and islands whilst enjoying the local port restaurants and cafes.

Stresa railway station is about a 12-15 minute walk from the apartment with regular trains to Milan, Switzerland and the local lakeside towns. From Carciano Port follow the lake walk to Stresa and admire the breath taking views across the lake and the beautiful baroque buildings, wonderful little shops and excellent restaurants, cafes and wine bars in the town of Stresa. A regular boat and ferry service transports you across the lake to the Borromean Islands and local lakeside towns and villages. There is also a daily super-fast hydrofoil to Switzerland. A number of local markets offer a range of fresh produce in Stresa and in the villages around the lake.

The apartment is very special with a wonderful terrace overlooking the lake and mountains. You can chill out with an aperitivo, breakfast, lunch or dinner and as the apartment is private you will not be overlooked. The local supermarket and post office is a 5 minute walk and at the bottom of the road you are on the beautiful Lake front where there are restaurants and boats to take you over to the Islands. The funivia will take you up into the mountains and is a wonderful trip for all the family. A variety of restaurants for all budgets can be found in the beautiful town of Stresa with its cobbled roads and unique shops. Transportation links are easy with local buses and Stresa railway station as well as regular taxi boats across the lake.

The apartment is located in a very special place overlooking the Lake and Mountains.

The building is secure with private parking and the local supermarket and post office are in easy walking distance. At the bottom of this road you are on the beautiful Lake front which will take you into Stresa. The apartment is located in an Italian residence...so you truly are among the local Italian people.

The good things about this apartment are Inge, local agent, and the panoramic view. Inge is a generous hostess. She gave us lots of valuable tips and is a great asset to the property. The apartment is neat, clean andwell equipped. We had great weather and spent a lot of time on the terrace where more comfortable outdoorchairs would have been appreciated. The walk from Stresa centre back up to the apartment was fine for us until the temperature reached 33 degrees. Then we took a taxi home(10 euros). We spent 9 days in Stresa and found plenty of things to do. This little town is lovely and makes a good base for exploring Lake Maggiore.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated and so happy you had a great holiday. the sun beds are in our Canteen, and in future I will leave them on the terrace for guests (the weather has been unpredicable this summer, hence they were put away) and the cushions for the chairs outside are in the wooden trunk on the terrace. I will add this info into our introduction pack. Many thanks again for your kind words and your 5 star rating.

Great apartment, perfect location for dog owners

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the apartment and Stresa was perfect – so much so we have already booked for 2 weeks next year. We found it very relaxing, everything we needed was readily available and we still have more to see and do.

The apartment is located within minutes of the walking trails and about a 15 minute walk down to the waterfront, which is great for us with 2 dogs. We parked the car up when we arrived and didn’t move it all week as everything we needed was within easy walking distance.

The handover with Inge, the local agent, went seamlessly, she was punctual and offered us some great information and recommendations of places to go and things to do e.g. local supermarkets, dog walks and restaurants. We and our dogs were made to feel extremely welcome by Inge, the rest of the residents in the apartment block and Stresa.

The layout of apartment is well planned, clean and perfectly maintained. All equipment was very good from the kitchen equipment, storage space and entertainment/Wi-fi etc. couldn’t have wished for more. The outside space worked well with the dogs and we spent a lot of time relaxing and enjoying the views from the terrace.

We went to the Cafe Torino as recommended – the staff were extremely helpful, explained the menu to us, there is a good range of vegetarian food on the menu, food was excellent, reasonably priced and dogs were welcome – we will certainly be returning on our next visit.

Overall great apartment, great people and great place - we would certainly recommend it.

Apartment suitable for walkers.

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Stresa, the apartment is exactly as the photographs suggest. On arrival we were met by the wonderful and entertaining apartment manager, Inge, she was kind to point out all the features of the apartment to make our stay enjoyable.

The kitchen is well stocked with all the pots, pans, cutlery, and crockery that you will need to be self -sufficient. We appreciated the supplies of tea, coffee, olive oil, S&P, as well the use of an automatic coffee maker.

It was great to have English speaking channels on the television, as well of the use of a great selection of books, DVDs and CDs, for when the weather was not so kind to going outside. The free WIFI works very well. Make sure you utilise the collection of maps and brochures, which included a walking/hiking map, and bus and ferry timetables, they are very helpful for planning our day.

The bathroom also contains a front loader washing machine, which was very handy.

The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the apartment was very quiet at night time, but the weather during our stay was very cold.

We enjoyed the views of the lake from the large balcony, it was always great to come home to after a big day out sightseeing/hiking. It took us 15 minutes to walk downhill to the centre of Stresa, and a little less to the train station.

Stresa was a great base for our holiday, good public transport connections with the train, bus and ferry (we used them all). A lot of thought has gone into making this apartment a home away from home.

Great Views, Comfortable and Well equipped

  • 5 of 5
We stay in a lot of self catering apartments and this would have to be one of the best equipped apartments in which we have stayed.

The photo's on the website are accurate and the apartment is clean, well maintained and comes with Inge, a local and really helpful manager who provided that personal touch that added to our holiday.

While the apartment is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Stresa, we found that this allowed us to enjoy the restaurants, shops and access to the ferry but then escape and relax away from the crowds. We also used the apartment as a base to explore Lake Maggiore by ferry and road and even slipped into Milan for a day trip on the train.

The only negative for us was that the winter weather had decided to stay a little longer than we had expected!

Fantastic stay in this wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this apartment in August was absolutely perfect. We stay for a week and would have loved to have stayed much longer. The apartment is furnished and decorated to a very high standard, and includes thoughtful extras such as a great espresso machine, as well as books, CDs, and DVDs. The bedroom and living room are extremely comfortable and views from the large balcony are absolutely amazing. Everything we needed was provided within the apartment, and the wifi meant that we could keep up to date with work while we were there.

The location is excellent, a short walk from Stresa town centre. Stresa itself is a great town, with lots to do and many excellent restaurants. A visit to the islands of Lake Maggiore is an absolute must and easily accessible from Stresa. It was a great base to explore further afield, and we really enjoyed visiting Lake Orta and Lake Como. We hired a car and there is parking right outside the apartment.

The handover with Inge, the managing agent, was absolutely seamless, and she provided us with many great recommendations of places to go and things to do. Communication was great before and during our trip.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone, and we hope to return in the near future.
