“Great apartment in good location and a brilliant host!”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed in this lovely apartment, late May for 1 week. Brilliant communications from the host, Renato, before & after booking (over 6 months ago). He picked us up from the station and dropped us to catch the 'Alibus' shuttle back to the airport. This apartment is well equipped. Wi Fi, fridge/ freezer, iron. etc. Renato explained how to use appliances etc. upon arrival.
Excellent shower.
Spiral staircase up to bedroom (may not suit everyone- but if only two staying, another bed in lounge, if desired.
The area is lovely and quiet, (although some train noise) Handy for nearby supermarket.
A good 20 min walk into town (and various ways of getting there/ back).
Stresa is an excellent base to see the lake and shoreline villages / towns.
Recommended trip is package via train to top of lake (Switzerland) and ferry(ies) home (or visa versa) Option to buy discounted (10 euro each) ferry ticket either day before or day after to enjoy other places on lake (good deal) Tickets from Travel agent (opposite Stresa ferry station)

Another trip is Zermatt Switzerland via Simplon pass. Mondays(?)

Enjoy this apartment, Stresa, and the lake!

“Peace and tranquility”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I have just spent at week in this lovely apartment. We wanted a peaceful location near Stresa and this is just what we got. The apartment itself is extremely well-equipped and the owner, Renato, explained everything thoroughly. He gave us restaurant recommendations in Stresa which were all excellent. It is an easy 15 minute walk to Stresa but you can also drive and we never had any difficulty finding parking. We were able to buy everything we needed for breakfast and lunch at the little supermarket nearby. I highly recommend the property to other travellers. We are staying tonight in a four-star hotel in Stresa but wish we were back in the apartment!

“very good value”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a good apartment and Renato is very good, I texted him when we were nearly there and he was on time, the apartment has eveything you need for your stay including a garage,there is a little supermarket just round the corner, its a good 20 minute walk into Stresa but it is a pleasant walk, there is a winding staircase that goes up to the bedroom so i would not recommend it to any one who has any disabilities.Good wi-fi.

“Modern, well-appointed apartment in an amazing location”
Reviewed 23 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The veranda of this apartment looks over beautiful lake Maggiore & its islands. It is truly a home away from home with every amenity provided. Well-apointed kitchen, new washing machine, two tvs, sateliite tv & DVD player. The upstairs bedroom is accessed by a spiral staircase & a great feature is the ceiling window with remote control - shutter can be retracted to watch the stars from bed! There is a great little supermarket about 3 minutes walk from here. Stresa central & the railway station are about 15 mins walk with stunning views.
Although attractions such as the cable car to Mt Mottarone & boat tours are closed during our stay in November, we have had a wonderful time using the buses & trains to tour the area. Can recommend the panoramic train from Domodossola to Lucarno in Switzerland. Renato, the owner collected us from the train on our arrival & is ever ready to help. Would love to come back again in Spring or Summer when all attractions are operating.

Renato collected us from the station and we arrived in the best equipped holiday rental either of us had ever experienced! The sofa bed had been made up for us and Renato's wife had made us some meringues as a welcome. The location was delightful and very quiet with a lovely terrace which sadly we couldn't use as it barely stopped raining - much to Renato's distress. When we left to go on to the poetry festival at Belgirate, Renato's wife kindly drove us there. What more could one ask?
