Long week-end in Varese

  • 5 of 5

I came with my parents, husband and sister and spent a wonderful time in Maurizio and Catharina's place. The apartment is so spacious, very quiet & peaceful, totally independent from the rest of the house, beautiful interior, fully equipped kitchen, and a terrace with a beautiful view where we enjoyed having lunch.

Maurizio and Catharina were perfect hosts, and gave us advice on where to have dinner in Varese.

We just wish we could have stayed longer!

Highly reccomended

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 weeks in this wonderful village house. The village is peaceful, pretty and characteristic. Not using a car, we found the buses to be reliable and regular with the bus stop just a few minutes walk from the house, and the centre of Varese about a 10-15 minutes bus ride away.. The location of the house was very strategic for us - trips to Milan, Torino; the weekly market of Luino; walks into the mountains and along trails just behind the house. For the purchase of fresh foods, breads and other supplies we walked down to the square of San Ambrosio with its small shops. Furnishings in the house were comfortable and lovely looking - in the main bedroom the mattress is firm, while in the 2nd bedroom the twin beds have softer mattresses for those who prefer that. Beautiful panoramic views towards Milan from the huge windows from most of the rooms. The kitchen is very cute of rustic style, and we found quite adequate for a variety of meal preparations. I would also like to add that the photos on the site do not do full justice to the loveliness of the interiors of this holiday home in reality.

Appréciation excellente; nous recommandons

  • 5 of 5

Cette location nous a comblés parfaitement. La maison offre un confort parfait (équipement complet, vastes pièces, nombreux dégagements, terrasse, jardin) mais surtout montre un caractère très chaleureux combinant une architecture typique de vielle demeure et la chaleur d'un ameublement et d'une décoration très personnelle manifestant les goût et la culture des propriétaires. La terrasse et le jardin privés sont très agréables pour le diner.

Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques (et polyglottes), à la fois présents et réservés.

Le lieu est un peu difficile d'accès, mais la contrepartie en est le calme.

Cette location est un endroit que nous conseillerions sans réserve à des amis.
