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.

Sehr schöne, gut ausgestatte Ferienwohnung mit sehr herzlichen Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr groß und hat genügend Platz für 6 Erwachsene und 2 Babys. Bei Carla und Renzo fühlt man sich wie zu Hause. Für die kleinen Zwerge standen 2 Babybetten und 2 Hochstühle und ein paar Spiele bereit, es wurde geholfen, das Planschbecken zu befüllen, wir durften vom selbstgebackenen Pizzabrot und von der Schokoladentorte kosten, wir wurden mit selbstgemachten Tiramisu verwöhnt. Wir würden wieder dort Urlaub machen!

A recommander sans hésiter !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accueil de Carla,comme nous l'avions imaginé, tant nos échanges par mail avaient été chaleureux.Un appartement très soigné,très propre,des attentions délicates à notre arrivée (vin,eau fraîche,fleurs...) et pendant tout le séjour. Des conseils judicieux pour la découverte de la région! Renzo également très accueillant avec de nombreuses cordes artistiques à son arc ! Des propriétaires humanistes qui nous marquent et que l'on ne peut oublier tant ils sont attachants!

Nous étions tristes de les quitter et déjà

nous aimerions y retourner !

Perfect place for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, which is located in a nice neighborhood, is very spacious, clean, nicely furnished and very well equipped, even with great toys for the kids.

There's plenty of place in the beautiful garden too.

The hosts, Carla & Renzo, are extremely hospitable, give good advice, kindly provided us with delicious fruits and vegetables from their garden and treated the kids very lovingly.

The bikes are very useful to go to the city center or to the beach.

Intra is a good starting point for any trip around Lago Maggiore.

In conclusion, this is definitely the place to go for spending perfect holidays!

Wundervoller Aufenthalt, viel Platz. Exzellent!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt bei Carla und Renzo. Es hat an nichts gemangelt. Die Wohnung war blitzeblank und mit liebevollen Aufmerksamkeiten bestückt (Extra Geschirr für Kleinkinder, Begrüßungsblumen, Schokolade, Nudeln....). Es war viel Platz und an der Ausstattung fehlte nichts.

Im Garten gab es genügend Sitzmöglichkeiten und eine Rutsche. In ca. 5-

10 minütiger Entfernung gab es Spielplätze und einen Fußballplatz. Die Stadt und der See waren zügig zu Fuß zu erreichen.

Wir wurden herzliche in Empfang genommen und konnten uns mit allen Fragen an Carla und Renzo wenden.

Wir können diese Ferienwohnung mit gutem Gewissen weiterempfehlen aufgrund ihrer Lage, ihrer Ausstattung und der Gastfreundschaft.

Wir waren mit 5 Personen dort. (2 Erwachsene, 2 Jugendliche, 1 Kleinkind).

Vacanza ideale per famiglie!!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso una bellissima esperienza, un'appartamento ampio e attrezzato adatto per famiglie anche con bambini piccoli. Grazie all'accoglienza e alla disponibilità di Carla e Renzo ci siamo trovati benissimo, anche i bambini si sono ambientati subito grazie anche ai giochi e alle biciclette messe a disposizione dai proprietari. L'appartamento inoltre è in una zona veramente tranquilla e verde, è ben posizionato sia per la spesa e i servizi sia per le escursioni nei dintorni. Esperienza da ripetere, grazie ancora!
