Mooi huisje met veel aandacht voor kinderen

  • 4 of 5

We hebben genoten van dit nette vakantiehuis waarbij veel aandacht was besteedt aan de kinderen (veel spullen voor hun). Het huisje zelf is redelijk eenvoudig maar ziet er wel netjes uit. De eigenaars waren zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Verder is het huisje een goede uitvalsbasis om naar de meren toe te gaan maar heb je niet de drukte die je direct aan het meer ervaart.

Maison très bien située et super équipée

  • 4 of 5

La maison est parfaite pour une famille avec des enfants, les jeux satisfont tous les âges, pour nos garçons, c'était le trampoline. La famille magiatris est très accueillante, et nous avons passé un très bon séjour. La maison est très propre et très bien équipée et nous avons pu faire beaucoup de balades et visites autour du lac majeur.

Merci beaucoup !

Tolles Urlaunsdomizil in den Bergen

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, kinderfreundlich und liegt in ruhiger Lage.

Die Familie Magistris ist sehr herzlich und hilfsbereit. Uns wurde ein toller Empfang geboten und wir erhielten Obst, Gemüse und Eier aus eigenem Anbau.

Der nahe gelegene Fluss (10 Gehminuten) mit toller Schlucht bietet Bademöglichkeiten.

Umfangreiches Infomaterial liegt aus. Das Haus liegt für Unternehmungen optimal.

Verschiedene Seen (Lago Maggiore, Lago d´Orta und Lago Mergozzo) sind in 15 Min. mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und möchten uns bei der Familie Magistris für den tollen Urlaub bedanken.

Urlaubs- und Kinderparadies!

  • 5 of 5

Im Ferienhaus "Elena" erwartet den Urlauber eine liebevolle Atmosphäre und sehr gepflegte Einrichtung, wo wirklich an jedes Details gedacht wurde und man vom ersten bis zum letzten Moment entspannt das Leben in einem piemontesischen Bergdorf abseits der Touristenströme am Lago Maggiore (die dennoch alle schnell per Auto erreichbar sind) genießen kann. Außerdem kann man von Santino aus wunderbare Wanderausflüge ins Val Grande und die umliegenden Berge machen.

Die Vermieter sind sehr herzlich, sorgen sich ernsthaft und geben wertvolle Tipps. Außerdem darf man sich am reichhaltigen Kräutergarten bedienen.

Nicht nur, aber insbesondere als Familie mit vielen Kindern fühlt man sich im Ferienhaus sehr wohl, da es viele Spielangebote und einen eigenen eingezäunten und abgeschirmten Garten gibt. Außerdem sind es bis zum dorfeigenen Spielplatz nur wenige Meter.

Santino haben wir dank des großartigen "Grande Festa dei Bambini" und der ortseigenen Bar schnell kennen gelernt und uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt.

Im Umland findet man ausreichend Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Am Lago di Mergozzo gibt es (zwischen Bahnhof und Steinbruch) eine großartige, sehr kinderfreundliche und bei Einheimischen bekannte Badestelle. Gute Pizzerien und Ristorantes können die Vermieter empfehlen. Eine grandiose (und völlig untouristische) Gelateria haben wir an der Landstraßen nördlich von Mergozzo entdeckt.

Vielen Dank an Elena, Anna und Gianni! Wir durften zwei herrliche Wochen in Santino verleben und kommen bestimmt wieder.

Mille grazie! Merci beaucoup à Elena, Anna et Gianni. Nous avons passés deux semaines très agréables à Santino. La maison de vacances "Elena" et très confortable et propre et on y a pensé à tous pour se sentir comme au paradis.
