A lovely spacious family accommodation in a residential area. About twenty minutes walk from the water front, shops and restaurants/bars. Carla and Renzo couldn't have been more helpful and kind (whilst being unobtrusive).

The best choice ever

  • 5 of 5

We have rented with VRBO many times but never had a better place or better hosts. This rental is spacious, very, very clean, is nicely furnished and has everything you could wish for. The balcony is the best place to have your morning coffee in the sun and give you a nice view of the neighborhood and a truly Italian feeling. The plants and flowers in Carla's garden and the neighboring houses makes it feel like living in a big beautiful yard. The beautiful town of Intra can easily be reached by foot as well as on bikes which Carla and Renzo generously provide for their renters. This place is perfect for a group of friends, families, basically everybody who wants to have an unique Italian experience. A supermarket is close by (easy walk, easy bike ride) and carries everything fresh and all you need. Carla and Renzo are the most helpful and generous hosts you could wish for and make you feel welcome and at home. The house is in a perfect location for trips to attractions like Monte Mottarone, Lago Mergozzo (great beach!), boat trips to the borromean islands and other cities on the lake. We stayed one week, which was way too short to do everything and see everything the region has to offer.

Die großzügige Wohnung liegt in einem ruhigen Wohngebiet, die Vermieter wohnen im gleichen Haus und sind überaus gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit. Nahe gelegene Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind mit dem Auto oder dem Fahrrad gut zu erreichen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Accueil merveilleux au bord du Lac Majeur

  • 5 of 5

Carla et Renzo nous ont merveilleusement accueilli avec nos 3 enfants pour 1 semaine fabuleuse de vacances au bord du Lac Majeur. Que ce soit pour les conseils d'excursion, les bons plans resto, achats, mais surtout les jeux et ramassage de tomates avec les enfants, Carla et Renzo font tout pour que nous sentions encore mieux qu'à la maison ! Encore merci !

Wunderbare Erholung am Lago Maggiore

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche in der Ferienwohnung. Die Anmietung war absolut unkompliziert, der Empfang von Carla und Renzi super nett und freundlich. Die Wohnung ist super sauber und gepflegt, die Betten gemütlich, der Garten klein und wunderschön, die Kinder hatten einen tollen Fuhrpark und viele Spielsachen. Rundum es war ein sehr gelungener Urlaub und wir werden bestimmt wieder kommen.
