The apartment was very clean, everything you need, wi-fi. Lovely view of the mountains and you can hear the river flowing from the balcony. I had a hire car which I felt comfortable in leaving has it has it's own private parking. Definitely need a car to travel. 15 to 20mins walk to Varallo. I also like no pets as I am allergic to animals. Will return.
This is a really beautiful place in the mountains. We felt at home for the 10 days we stayed here and you can ask the owner Mary P everything. The apartment has everything you need and above all: a nice view over the surrounding mountains and the Sesia river. Sitting on the balcony, gives you the feeling of sitting on a royal loge in the opera. Close the windows on the front of the apartment (strada provinciale) and open the windows (day & night) by the riverside: it’s enormously tranquilizing. You can swim in the river on hot days and go rafting on it on ‘wild’ days. The little town of Varallo has a UNESCO ‘sacred mountain’ (do go there several times), a beautiful museum and lots of nice restaurants/café’s/gelaterias. Milano is 1,5 h by car and Torino about 2 hours. The Great lakes are also at reasonable distance (Lago d’Orta with the interesting Orta and Island of San Giulio, Lago Maggiore with the stunning Isola Bella). If you travel by car: definitely stay in this apartment and contact Mary.
