Stresa is a beautiful, elegant town on Lake Maggiore. It lies at the foot of the Italian Alps.
The town offers the ideal location for a relaxing or for a more active holiday.
The apartment is a few minutes walk to the lake where you can take a boat trip to the Borromean Islands (Isola Bella, Isola, Madre and Isola dei Pescatori) or even all the way to Switzerland. It is also only minutes away from the lakeside beach and its children's playground.
There are many sporting activities on Lake Maggiore (swimming, boating, sailing, water skiing, scuba diving, windsurfing) and also on the slopes of the Mottarone mountain in the Alps. In summer you can go hiking, mountain biking (guided tours can be arranged), paragliding, hang gliding, horse-riding and in winter skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing. The cable car, which is near the apartment, takes you to the summit of Mount Mottarone. From the summit you have a spectacular panorama of Lake Maggiore and the 6 other alpine lakes and also of the Alps and of Monte Rosa and the Val Grande National Park.
Many Golf Clubs are nearby including the Golf Club of the Borromean Islands and Golf Alpino (one of the oldest in Italy).
Day excursions possible to Macugnaga, to the waterfalls in the valley of Val Toce Formazza or to the Simplon Pass or the tiny exquisite Lake Orta.
There are many grand 19th century villas and gardens to visit such as Villa Taranto, Villa Pallavicino and the Alpinia Gardens as well as the beautiful 'Belle Epoque' hotels which grace the shores of the Lake.
For walkers, there are numerous lovely walks in the surrounding area and the Val Grande National Park is a walkers' paradise. Riding and tennis are also available.
There is free parking 200-300 metres away.
For those of you in need of some serious shopping and culture and city-life, Milan is only a short 45 minutes away on the Express train.
For 3 peopel, I have a smaller apartment (50m2) in the same house.
