Stresa is a small, beautiful and elegant town on Lake Maggiore which lies at the foot of the Italian Alps. It has many good restaurants, bars and grand hotels and is the ideal place for either a relaxing or more active holiday.
The Stresa Location rental is situated in a period house, in the pedestrian area in the historic centre of Stresa.
It is a 3 minutes' walk from the beach and lake and 100 metres from the ferry where you can take a boat trip across Lake Maggiore and to the Borromean Islands, or even to Switzerland. You can also swim in the lake, go sailing, water-skiing and diving. There are many fully-equipped beaches along the lake and public swimming pools.
Recently renovated, this apartment has been finished to a high standard and tastefully furnished in a modern style. There is a terrace at back with table and chairs, where you can eat outside or simply relax in the sun.
