We've just spent a fantastic week in Ranco staying at this very modern, clean and well equipped apartment. The views from the balcony are amazing. Parking is easy, right in front and you have your own little beach. We swam in the lake most days and had fun taking the pedlo out. Emanuela is a lovely host and lives downstairs. She leaves you alone but is close by if you need her. We took a ferry trip over to Stresa on one day including a visit to the beautiful Isola Bella. Laveno and the amazing bucket cable car is only 30mins drive and should be combined with a visit to Saint Caterina monestary. Angera is next door. A great place for pizzerias and cafes all with views across to Arona. The Castle is impressive. We also took a train into Milan from Sesto Calende. It was a perfect location to see the highlights around the lake. Would highly recommend for a family break. Thank you for a special holiday!
