Why Gianni Magistris chose San Bernardino Verbano
Independent villa renovated in 2012 on mezzanine floor, all on one level with large private garden (gazebo with table, sun beds, barbecue). Nicely furnished with all comforts, Wi-Fi and satellite TV in each room. Independent kitchen fully equipped. Living room and one bathroom with shower. In the basement there is a large garage and a laundry room. There is also a large parking space at the side of the house. The house is located in Santino in the municipality of San Bernardino Verbano, 50m from the main village bar, a few miles from all the amenities of Verbania and Gravellona Toce, at the entrance of the National Park of Val Grande on the way to reach Cicogna village and Alpe Ompio. With 5min walk it is possible to reach San Bernardino river where you can fish and swim in the uncontaminated waters and with 10 minute drive you can reach the pretty Mergozzo lake or catch a touristic ferry from Intra or Pallanza for an Island Tour. The location is perfect for excursions on Maggiore Lake, Borromean Islands, Orta Lake, in natural parks (Natural Park of Val Grande, Alpe Veglia, Alpe Devero), the Botanical Gardens, the Baths of Premia and Crodo, for summer and winter excursions in the mountains (Macugnaga, Mottarone Vigezzo Valley, Bognanco Valley, San Domenico and Domobianca) where you can sky and practice snowshoes in wintertime. In the surrounding area you can also enjoy golf, water sports, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing.

A quiet retreat between the lake and mountains
The property is the perfect retreat and base from which to explore the area. Everything you could possibly need has been supplied, from utensils, kettle, coffee machine to various spices, salt, pepper, coffee etc. All cleaning materials are supplied, even washing powder and fabric softener.
The bedrooms are large, bright and airy and have very comfortable beds. There is a large dining table inside and another outside, where we spent most of our time. There are all sorts of toys and games for children, plus an outdoor playground. Our daughter didn't want to leave! We even had bed guards supplied, which saved us packing them. The family have thought of everything. You literally couldn't wish for anything more. The whole place was spotlessly clean.
Ideally, you need a car to be able to explore the area. There is private parking right outside the gate and we felt very comfortable that the car was perfectly safe there. We visited Como, Orta and several other towns and markets in the area, all within a short drive. A direct train from Stresa (15 mins away by car) takes you Milan in around an hour and is very reasonably priced. Free parking is available at and near the station.
The hosts - from the moment we were greeted upon arrival we felt like we were part of the family. Gianni, Anna and Elena were very helpful and informative. We arrived to find fresh water and fruit ready for us. Gianni popped by with lettuces from his garden and Elena brought us a huge punnet of blueberries. They were insistent that if we wanted anything at all we should just call or message them.
We would highly recommend this property, which has been our best experience of holiday rentals so far. It will be very difficult to beat.
A huge thank you to the Magistris family for their kindness and generosity. We will be back!
A great base for our family by the lakes
We enjoyed a lovely stay and a very warm welcome. The house is well equipped and has a great array of toys and games downstairs for our little one. We will seriously consider coming back and recommending to friends and family.
Famiglia molto simpatica e amichevole. La casa è stata lasciata perfettamente in ordine e pulita. Sarà sicuramente un piacere ospitarli ancora presso la nostra casa vacanza.
Excellent séjour, accueil parfait
Accueillis comme à la maison par des hôtes très chaleureux : une soupe succulente et des fruits nous attendaient !! Explications complètes sur les sites à visiter. Maison très bien équipée et confortable. Une adresse à retenir
Soggiorno piacevolissimo in una località incantevole
Io, mio marito e i nostri due bimbi abbiamo soggiornato 15 giorni in questa casa...l'accoglienza della signora Elena e dei suoi genitori è stata eccezionale, sono persone fantastiche pronte a soddisfare ogni necessità. La casa pulitissima è dotata di ogni comfort ed è super accessoriata, per non parlare della quantità di giochi presenti (che coprono ogni fascia di età) a disposizione dei bimbi. Inoltre la posizione della casa è ideale per poter godere della tranquillità della montagna ma allo stesso tempo della vivacità del lago. I dintorni sono magnifici, con panorami da togliere il fiato. In conclusione..è stato un soggiorno meraviglioso e senz'altro torneremo presto a trovare la famiglia Magistris. Grazie di tutto!!!
We hadden een hartelijk ontvangst. Het huis was schoon met complete inventaris. Een mooie omgeving met verschillende mogelijkheden voor uitstapjes. Zeker een aanrader! Een plek voor herhaling vatbaar.
super fun house for family's with children
We have had the most warm welcome ever bij Gianni, Elena and Anna: kind words, soup and bread, fresh fruit, herbs from the garden: we felt at home at once! Our kids loved the house full off surprises: so many games and toys. The house is in a tiny village and close by the Lago Maggiore: plenty of beautifull villages and nice restaurants in the neighbourhood. There is one disadvantage: the football-table in the basement was so much fun that it is was quite addictive and added some serious competention between de boys and girls in our family ;-)...
