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.

This apartment is excellently appointed and located close to the waterfront and Stresa centre. It's a moderately strenuous climb to the property, then some more stairs to the entrance. Take the lift or further stairs to the apartment and then enjoy the marvellous balcony view...More

Interaction with guests
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....

About the neighbourhood
Stresa is one of the best known resorts on Lake Maggiore and is noted for its majestic architecture, its beauty and its cosmopolitan atmosphere. It offers warm friendly Italian hospitality with its lakeside promenade and old town square with colourful cafes and shops.

Stresa lies at the foot of the Mottarone mountain which can be reached by cable car from one end of the town. The top of the mountain offers spectacular views including the highest peak in Italy, Monte Rosa , as well as the surrounding area. One of the most enchanting aspects however lies on the lake itself on the Borromean islands, each with their own individual character and history. Isola Madre and Bella house exquisite gard...
Getting around
You can travel on the Centrovalli mountain railway into Switzerland to Locarno, taking in breathtaking alpine views, and return to Stresa by ferry boat visiting any number of the towns that line the shore along the way. There are numerous walks to suit everybody on Mottarone or the nature walks that contour the lake in between nearby villages. For the more adventurous you can book to stay overnight in a refuge in the nearby Val Grande – one of the wildest national parks in Italy. The Italian ski slopes can be reached in around 45 minutes and the famous Swiss resorts of Zermatt and Saas Fee in a couple of hours by car. There are also numerous popular golf courses in the area.
