Quiet secluded location with a stunning view of the lake. Situated in a quaint hill side location. The owners were so accommodating and could not have been more helpful and kind. This all made for a most enjoyable stay
Just stayed in this lovely little house for a wedding in Malcesine. The property is lovely and clean and everything you have read about Loris is completely true - he is a sweetheart.
House contains everything you need and we loved sitting on the balcony, having a gossip and enjoying a tipple or two.
Getting to the house is not tricky but Google maps might throw you off a bit. My top tip would be that you need to go up a tiny 'slip' by Hotel Cassone - you are in the right place! It's a little narrow on the drive up so avoid doing a Lewis Hamilton impression.
The path down/up to house is cobbled - heavy bags might be a nightmare getting them back up to the car. We were a little cheeky and took our bags down to the nearest bus stop. My house mate then grabbed the car and we loaded them in from the bottom.
Oh yes, ladies and high heeled wearing gents - best leave the heels until you're at the bottom or better still leave them at home as you'll soon realise trying to wear them is a fruitless task!
The house has a TV but if your English it only has 2 English channels (news) so if you fancy watching a bit of TV/Film then bring a laptop or the TV might take DVD's - check with Loris. I did my iPad and my Netflix worked fine when I was just chilling in between going out.
Nearest shops that have 'everything' are Jolly One Discount (closed between 12.45-3.30) and Eurospar. Both are easy to find on the S249 road/Malcesine.
We walked regularly from Cassone to Malcesine and back but it is a good hour. Great for walking off a Pizza or a couple of glasses of Prosecco and walking past the lake is delightful.
Taxi's into town were easy enough to get Loris provided some numbers but we did have trouble getting one after 11 p.m... good old walk back then! The fare was appoximately 14 euro's. There is a tourist bus at 1.20 euro's as well.
Overall really lovely house, host and nice location.
