Spacious apartment and perfect location.
Apartment was spotless, ample space for the 4 of us to spread out, big rooms and lots of closet space, big bathrooms with lots of towels, kitchen had all the supplies we needed, Giuliano gave us sparkling water for the week. Location was perfect, shortcut down the back of the property allowed us to get to center of town within 10 minutes, grocery store was 5 minutes walking distance, train station was a 15 minute walk. Quiet neighborhood. Giuliano was helpful and responsive. Could not ask for anything more!
Thank you for your lovely review!

Vacation for four in Stresa
We had a lovely vacation in Stresa and enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was very, very, clean and well thought out. It had everything we needed especially since we wanted to cook breakfasts and a meal or two in the apartment. The view is stunning! The best part was waking up to the incredible view of Lake Maggori. We walked to town easily although the steps might be difficult for some, it was a bit of a climb back up. The only note is that the apartment is quite austere, there are no paintings on the wall, no decorations really and it feels quite cold and lacks ambiance. That being said, we would still stay there again as it served our needs very well. Our host, Giuliano Giordani, was wonderful, accommodating and very gracious. He allowed us to check in immediately which we very much appreciated and to stay late if we needed to. He was perfect. Thank you for a great stay.

Great Apartment in a Fabulous Location
Great aparrment. Perfect for our family of four. Easy walk into Stresa. Lovely meals on the terrace overlooking Lago Maggiore. Will return if we can!
We had our 3rd stay in the perfect apartment this spring.
Amazing views and everything you need is there.
Excellent communication with the owner and manager,who arranged airport transfers.
wonderful aprtment with glorious views
The property was in a lovely position, overlooking Stresa but an easy walk down into the town. From the outside it looked very nice indeed, set in beautifully tended grounds, inside it was extremely comfortable and everything was top quality from the two bathrooms to the spacious bedrooms and the open plan lounge/kitchen area. Best of all was the magnificent view of Lake Maggiore from the bedroom and the sitting room. The owner welcomed us on arrival and was so friendly and helpful, even bringing us bottled water whenever we needed it. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I couldn't recommend this apartment highly enough. It was ideal for us and we were really delighted to have found it!
Stresa is a beautiful, elegant town on Lake Maggiore. It lies at the foot of the Italian Alps. The airport at Malpensa is only 45 km away and Milan itself is about 80 km. There is a railway station in Stresa and bus service to other lakeside towns such as Arona and Verbania. Stresa offers the ideal location for a relaxing or for a more active holiday. The apartment is located in the hills just above Stresa and is just a short taxi ride from the station or a 10-minute walk into town centre via pedestrian steps and paths through the park. It is 1 km from the centre of Stresa. From Lake Maggiore you can take a boat trip to the Borromean Islands (Isola Bella with its magnificent castle, Isola, Madre and Isola dei Pescatori with its fish restaurants). You can even take a boat to Switzerland. Also by the lake, there is a small beach and a playground for children. 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 summer you can go hiking, mountain biking (guided tours can be arranged), paragliding, hang-gliding, horse-riding and in winter skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing. There is cable car, which 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. There are many Golf Clubs including the Golf Club of the Borromean Islands and Golf Alpino (one of the oldest in Italy). Day excursions are possible to Macugnaga, to the waterfalls in the valley of Val Toce Formazza or to the Simplon Pass or to the tiny exquisite Lake Orta. There are many beautiful 19th century villas and gardens to visit such as Villa Taranto, Villa Pallavicino and the Alpinia Gardens. Stresa is also famous for its grand 'Belle Epoque' hotels that 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 hikers' paradise. Riding and tennis are also available. 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 from Stresa station. I have other holiday rentals in Stresa and on Lake Maggiore, on Lake Orta, Lake Como and Lake Garda - please contact me for details. Website: www.italianlakesrentals.eu
