We had a lovely 5 days in Cossogno. The cottage is beautifully maintained and had everything we needed. Elena was an excellent host who went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The village has a small shop and a smashing osteria where we had a lovely meal. Also serves as a bar. The local villagers were all really friendly especially as we had our dog with us. The village is away from the hustle and bustle of Maggiore and about 10 minutes to Verbania. Highly recommended in a quiet spot.
The apartment was very well positioned overlooking Lake Maggiore. It was clean and fitted out to a good standard. A key-safe would have been useful rather than having to meet people on arrival and departure, especially when you're driving and have no idea when you might arrive! An ironing board and a fan would also be a good idea. A few basic staples on arrival would have been welcome e.g. milk, bread etc. Unlimited wi-fi would be much more useful than the limited one actually available. Overall, though, it was a very good place to stay - but don't expect anyone to speak any English in the vicinity.
