Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!

wonderful aprtment with glorious views

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic town home with direct spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Stresa. This property was beautiful and perfect for us. From the little garden and sitting area in the front to the balcony directly facing lake Maggiore towards the back, we felt like we were in our own private little haven during our stay. The town home was spacious, with two full bathrooms and nicely accommodated bedrooms. Decor was clean and modern - seemed brand new! Kitchen was great for us to prepare our own breakfast each morning before heading out to explore the area. Property manager, Giuliano was very nice and helpful. If returning to Stresa, I'd book this property again in a heartbeat!

Fantastic location - and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

Stresa is a great place to stay providing an easy gateway to the many attractions around the Lake, full of good places to eat and retaining a very Italian feel to the town. The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the town centre and has a spectacular and commanding view of the lake, the islands and the mountains from the large and wide balcony. This was a great place to sit and take in the views at all times of the day (there are also always shady spots to be had on the balcony which is was very welcome given the temperatures when we visited). The walk itself to the town centre mainly avoids what can be a busy and somewhat narrow road - there is a short section which cannot be avoided but is not a problem with sensible caution. At peak times there can be a little road noise when on the balcony but is not overly intrusive and is also not a factor when in the apartment which had good soundproofing (the views and the regular bird song more than compensates). The apartment is modern and part of a block on three levels amongst a number of other properties which are well spaced out - there is a very good degree of privacy on the balconies and on the top floor apartments each has a large sitting area to the back of the property and gardens which get more of the sun during the day. We rarely used the kitchen other than the sizeable fridge and the dishwasher, we did not need to use the TV so cannot comment on what was on offer and the WIFI was good. All in all, a great choice and in particular those stunning views which few other apartments we saw would have had.

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.
