BUT the best bit is the wonderful terrace and view directly over Lake Maggiore. Gabriella is the most charming and helpful owner who lives in the apartment below. You can walk into the town but it is a good half hour downhill and more uphill home. Just get a taxi home it is worth it.

Rossana was very accommodating and gave lots of useful information relating to restaurants and places to visit in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Stresa and it was great to stay in an apartment so close to all the local amenities. Stresa is a great base to explore Lake Maggiore.
