Recent Reviews

A spacious apartment in an excellent location for exploring Lake Maggiore and Milan.

5 of 5
We were welcomed by our host's family and settled into our apartment very quickly. The apartment was very clean, very well equipped; the air conditioning in the bedrooms made our stay very comfortable during a hot week. The apartment is spacious. Safe, off road, parking is available in the supermarket carpark next door. This shop is a good source of everyday items. The apartment, though it is in Dormelletto, is nearer Arona. We thought that Arona was a very pleasant town with lakeside walks and an interesting older area. We found free parking opposite the railway station. We used this parking when we visited Milan by train and later when we took advantage of the 2-day ticket on the Lake Maggiore Express to take boat trips and travel by train towards Locarno. We thoroughly recommend this place as a base for the area.

Perfection!

5 of 5
Not only the view is outstanding, the apartment is perfectly equipped and beautifully decorated, a real home from home (even much better :)) and very comfortable. We were warmly welcomed by Dana and Giuseppe who made sure we had everything we needed and we appreciated very much the ease of communication by text message. We will certainly be returning again in the future and highly recommend their accommodation. Thanks for making our stay so seamless and perfect!
