Property Guestbook extracts: We had a wonderful time in Castello - it was a great location (no need for a car), great view and full of those 'little' touches which make it truly a home away from home, so thank you... Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time in Stresa. Your apartment was so lovely and spacious, we really enjoyed breakfasting on the balcony... The apartment is ideally located being very close to the centre but far enough away so you can only hear the church bells... We did appreciate how well equipped and furnished it was, though the wonderful weather meant that the balcony, with its stunning view across the lake, turned out to be the ‘room’ we used the most. We really liked Stresa....

Stayed at Castello 30 June to 7 July 2018. Well fitted out apartment with everything you could want. Quiet with fabulous views. A very comfortable stay. Loved breakfasting on the veranda in the morning and enjoying a glass of rose in the evening.

We had a fantastic stay in the Castello Apartment. The view was amazing. The apartment was great, really well fitted out. The location was perfect, so quiet yet very well positioned for the centre of Stresa. Ileana was very helpful. We really hope to return.
