“A great base”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

On the edge of the town, but only five minutes away from the shops, restaurants and the boat.
The balcony is not overlooked and has a great view out over the lake towards Pallanza. The walk up to the apartment block entrance we didn't find at all taxing and we're both retired, though it is on a gradient.. We enjoyed breakfasts on the balcony which gets sun up to late morning, and is good for evening dining. Having English terrestrial TV channels was a bonus. Stresa provided a great location because it's on the railway, there are boats regularly up, down and across the lake, and the buses go back towards Milan, up to Intra, and across to Lake Orta, so it's a communications hub. There are other houses behind the block, and occasionally there's noise from pets, etc, but I would certainly stay here again.

Great apartment, wonderful views, lovely bakery in square for fresh croissants for breakfast whilst sitting on the balcony, Appartment very clean and tidy and the kitchen has all you need to cook a meal. Stresa is wonderful for relaxing people watching and drinking coffee .

“Peaceful apartment with great views”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Very good apartment. Roomy and airy, with comfy sofas. Lovely balcony on which to watch the world go by or eat meals. Location is good, at the end of the town and up a hill which can be a slight drag to climb, but the result is that it is very quiet - and in fact it is only 5 minutes from the shops and restaurants and the boats.

“What a fantastic apartment, and the view............Wow.”

I don't quite know where to begin this review. Do I begin by saying how easy it was to book and contact the owners or do I say the "arrival instructions" were excellent. Perhaps I should start by saying how nice it was to be met by Enzio who introduced us to the apartment and showed us how all the gadgets worked. Or would it be the super bottle of wine left for us to enjoy. Maybe I should start with none of those and simply just say, open the bottle sit down on the balcony and enjoy what what must be one of the finest views one can ever have.
It was great, we recommend this to all who look for the perfect hideaway in Stresa.
