“Tired”

There are relatively few rental properties in Stresa and what is available is much more expensive than other parts of Italy that I've stayed in - Florence, Lucca, Rome, Sorrento, Milan, etc. For this reason, the property was the most expensive of our stay and also the least appealing. The apartment was immaculately clean and the owner was extremely pleasant and helpful. When I complained that the rock hard bed made sleep impossible she produced a single camp mattress to put on top and that helped. She also very kindly gave us a lift to the station on the day that we left.

The apartment is sparsely furnished with mismatched pieces. Both beds were extremely uncomfortable with the one in the smaller bedroom being the worst. The owner insisted that Italians like hard beds, but I've never encountered any this hard before. There was no living room...only a small dining area off the kitchen. The view does not compare to the ones in the photographs which were obviously taken from upstairs. Make sure that you bring a cake of soap in your hand luggage because you will arrive hot and sweaty and none is provided.

Apart from the cleanliness and the pleasant owner, the other thing that commends this property is the convenient location.

My two sisters and I had a wonderful time in Stresa, on beautiful Lake Maggiore, and the view from this clean, attractive, central apartment was dazzling. Very handy as well, as it is a stone's throw from the ferry terminal, which provides services to the Borromean Islands (well worth a visit), Locarno in Switzerland and other areas around the lake worth visiting. The Centovalli Railway, which joins up with Locarno is lovely, as is the cable ride to the top of Mt Mottarone, where the bob-slide run is great fun for kids up to seniors like us. A stop at the pretty Alpine Gardens half-way down entertained us with a spectacular view over the lake. The town is charming, there is plenty for children to enjoy, and it is not as crowded as some similar sites. Rossana, the owner, was most friendly and helpful.

“Great Location”

We flew Prestwick to Bergamo and got bus to Milan to stay the night. Then train to Stresa, reasonable 15 mins walk to apartment.

Apartment is as central as can be, handy for town and boats. Pictures from 1st floor apartment are slightly misleading as your lake view is actually obscured by the trees at the lakeside , So i would recommend the 2nd floor apartment if its available. Apartment is spacious and well equipped, we cooked most days and there was everything you could need. Stresa has an excelent large supermarket , 5 mins from apartment, and food and drink prices were better than major uk supermarket prices (660 ml peroni for under € 1) .Restaurant food prices were ok, but huge drink mark up prices .

Stresa is a great base with lot of boating possibilities. Its not great for walking (or running ) between towns as main road is busy with no pavements outwith town centre. Stresa does however have a mile long promenade to passigiata of an evening.

Cable car is expensive, but dont do the one way and walk down option unless you are majorly fit with appropriate footwear. 3 hours stumbling down a rocky road in the heat wasnt much fun !

All in all a nice apartment in a great town, but get the 2nd floor if you can.

“Il Viaggiatore - great place to stay!”
Reviewed 2 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We had a lovely stay at Il Viaggiatore, Stresa. It is very central, close to everything - shops, transport, restaurants etc. The apartment is very well appointed, beds are comfortable, bathroom is modern and kitchen well equiped. Rossana, the owner, is very helpful with advice on the local area. I would highly recommend it as a place to stay in Stresa.

This apartment is located opposite the lake, next door and upstairs from a wonderful coffee bar (Gigi Bar). The owner was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The building is not new, and the apartment is simple, but it has character, and the facilities worked well. There was a small, clean bathroom with a good shower recess. One bed felt like a Futon (not normally my favourite type of bed), but overall I slept quite well, even jetlagged. The tiny balcony has a great view overlooking at the lake. Rossana also recommended a very good taxi service from Malpensa which worked excellently and made things so much easier after a very long flight.
