Short walk into San Guilio for breakfast, many restaurants and boutique shops. Ideal centre for exploring area and walking. Not too commercialised. We loved it and had a very happy stay 14 May for a week.

The highlight is the amazing view from every room, and of course the balcony - ideal to relax on and watch the boats on the lake, and the sun setting behind the mountains. Stresa itself is beautiful, and a short stroll downhill from the apartment - with lovely restaurants and enotecas, and plenty of gelato options! Lots to do out and about in the area. A great place to stay in a lovely part of the world. The owner and property manager could not have been more helpful and welcoming too. Highly recommended.
