Magical Maggiore!

5 of 5
Stayed here last summer on a recent tour of Italy. This home was a gem. Exactly as we expected based on the photographs on the site (always a relief when selecting a home over the internet!) The team that handled the booking were professional and efficient and the home itself ticked all the boxes. View, location, layout plus the weather was kind! The village has some great bars and restaurants and is also close to Stresa ( a little more touristy but worth a visit nonetheless) A visit to the islands is also a must! We will definitely return.

Beautiful apartment, great location

5 of 5
The photos of the apartment don't do it justice - it's beautifully maintained throughout and a comfortable place to be. Facilities-wise, it has everything you could need. The bathroom is modern, the kitchen fully-equipped and there is plenty of space if you're a couple or have young children. The location is very convenient for everything in Baveno (the lake being a short 4-5min walk away), but the road itself is very quiet with almost no traffic, making the apartment a peaceful place to be away from the bustle and traffic of the lakefront road. A small piece of information for future travellers - the parking place is more suited to a smaller vehicle. We had rented a larger car at the airport, and while it wasn't really a problem it would definitely have been easier with a smaller one! We would definitely recommend this to any couple looking for non-hotel accommodation in Baveno, and if we return to the same area would stay here again.
