Overview

About the property

Stresa is a beautiful and elegant town on Lake Maggiore, at the foot of the Italian Alps.

The apartment "Vista Lago" has stunning views of virtually the whole lake and is very romantic. From the front terrace you can see Isola Bella and Isola Madre and Stresa old town and from the other side, you can see Laveno and the eastern side of the lake. This side also overlooks a wonderful sub-tropical garden filled with palms and flowering plants and the sound of birdsong. The terrace is large (30m2) and fully furnished with table and chairs and sunloungers and is partly shaded.

Secure garage available for one car but you do not need a car with this rental.

The apartment is stylishly but comfortably furnished and spacious (110m2) and is very well-equipped. There is parquet flooring throughout. The location is both very quiet and leafy but is under a 5-minute walk from both the lake and the historic centre of Stresa with all its restaurants and shops.

It was recently renovated and finished to a high standard and has all the mod cons. Each room has a lake view and a view of 'Isola Bella'.

WiFi Internet, air-conditioning and central heating and is available all year round.

It is located on the 1st floor in a purpose-built residence with lift..

The apartment comfortably accommodates up 5 people in one double bedroom and one twin-bedded (or double) room (an extra fold-up bed can be supplied for a child). 2 bathrooms - one with shower and bidet and one with large corner bath for 2 people + shower attachment and bidet.

The living room has lovely views on the lake and leads to the terrace. It has a dining area for 6 people and a decorative fireplace. The kitchen is separate and well-equipped with dishwasher, electric oven and gas hob, washing machine, microwave, Gaggia electric Espresso/cappuccino machine, mini-oven, electric filter coffee machine, toaster and kettle. It also has a small table with 2 chairs.

The bedlinen and towels are changed at the end of the first week and the apartment is cleaned (no extra charge).

Milan Malpensa Airport is less than an hour's drive (45 km) and 85 km from Milan itself. From the end of March to the end of September there is a bus service (Alibus) which takes you directly from Malpensa airport to the apartment in under an hour. It stops at the church on the lake, 5 minutes' walk from the apartment.

The bus-stop for the lakeside towns of Verbania and Arona is very near.

Minimum stay is 7 days in the Summer months and 4 days during the rest of the year.

Stresa makes a perfect base from which to explore the wonders of Lago Maggiore: hop on any ferry to discover the magic of the Borromean Islands, the fascinating villas along the shore, the Piedmont towns of Arona and Intra and the picturesque towns on the other side of the lake in Lombardy. You can even take a full-day boat tour all the way up the lake to Switzerland (Ascona and Locarno). Stresa's railway station which is a 15-20 minute walk connects you easily with Milan (in under and hour), where you can shop, sightsee, or simply sip a coffee and watch the world go by in the famous Piazza del Duomo.

The best apartment in Stresa with a view you will never forget!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Vista Lago was wonderful. The view of Lago Maggiore from the large and comfortably furnished terrace is amazing! We stayed one month and found the apartment very comfortable, attractively furnished, and easy to live in.The linens and towels were very nice and changed weekly, the choices of various coffee pots (from espresso machine to filter coffee) amazing, and everything very clean and tidy. All appliances worked perfectly. The property manager, Giuliano, is an absolute sweetheart and helped us with several small things, including arranging our transportation back to Milan. His English is excellent. The owner is also very kind and helpful with advice about favorite restaurants etc. Spending a month in Stresa without a car was easy---we bought the reduced rate one week passes for the ferry so we could travel anywhere on the ferry system as much as we wanted. We went to many other small, charming towns on the lake as well as the 3 Borromean Islands. We took several viator tours (Zermatt and the Matterhorn was amazing!) and were picked up at the Tomasucchi Travel agency--5 minute walk from the apartment. Walking into Stresa "downtown" takes about 10 minutes with many restaurants, small produce and prosciutto shops, bakery, pastry shops, pharmacies and a nice Carrefour supermarket. Our favorite restaurants were Osteria degli Amici, the Piemontese and La Piazetta where the pizzas are the best in town. But our best memories will always be having a glass of the wonderful local wines, olives, local cheese etc on the terrace looking out at beautiful Lago Maggiore.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideally located near shopping, restaurants and the lake. We didn't need to use our car at all.

The apartment itself was well-appointed, extremely clean and comfortable.

Giuliano, the manager could not have been nicer or more helpful. We lived Stresa, and if we return, we will definitely stay at this apartment!

Fantastic apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday at Vista Lago - the apartment is fantastic, spotlessly clean, and excellently equipped and finished. The highlight is the amazing view from every room, and of course the balcony - ideal to relax on and watch the boats on the lake, and the sun setting behind the mountains. Stresa itself is beautiful, and a short stroll downhill from the apartment - with lovely restaurants and enotecas, and plenty of gelato options! Lots to do out and about in the area. A great place to stay in a lovely part of the world. The owner and property manager could not have been more helpful and welcoming too. Highly recommended.

Comfortable and luxurious Maggiore apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is comfortable and luxurious, but the main attraction has to be the views from the wonderful terrace. Sitting outside with a glass of wine and watching the evening boat traffic and the sun going down over the mountains was incredible. The owner is wonderful to work with and the on site manager very responsive to the couple of small issues we had. The apartment has everything you could possibly need from satellite TV to three different coffee makers! We had a brilliant week sampling the local restaurants and doing some amazing mountain hikes.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely apartment-very clean and comfortable. Views off the porch are outstanding. Convenient to all. A bit of an uphill walk but well worth it. Owner very responsive to all our needs as well as the apartment manager. Recommended many wonderful restaurants. Hope to return someday.
