The impressive Villa Ducale dates to the mid-18th Century, while the 19th Century Villa Pallavicino sits on the lakefront and is famous for its attractive gardens. For unrivalled views of the lake and its surrounding mountains you could catch the cable car up to the peak of Mount Mottarone. The ride takes 20 minutes and the Alpine panoramas at the top are unforgettable. On lake, towards the western shore are the Borromean Islands, made up of Isla del Pescatori, Isola Madre and Isola Bella. The most popular of the three is Isola Bella, which is home to magnificent palace surrounded by immaculate gardens, and is reachable via a ten-minute boat ride. During your holiday at a villa in Stresa it would be well worth taking the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful landscapes on foot. There is a range of walks that can be joined from the town on foot.

                                                              Wonderful!

                                                              We had a wonderful week here, exploring the lake and the many botanical gardens. The apartment is very clean, spacious and well-equipped, as well as quiet at night. It is a very short walk to the ferries, shops, supermarket, restaurants etc. Guiseppe and Dana were very welcoming and helpful. We hope to return.

                                                              Comfortable well-provisioned condo. Wonderful on-site owner-managers.

                                                              A spotless well-provisioned modern apartment. We had a north view with a stunning view of Stresa, the lake, and the Borromean islands. Giuseppe and Dana (born and raised in Brooklyn – although she has lost her accent), the owner managers of this 6 unit property, are a lovely couple who are hands on from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. They live in one of the units and have extensive knowledge of local restaurants and activities. Don’t let the map fool you, but you cannot walk to Stresa from here. It may be OK downhill, but uphill would ruin your vacation. Highly recommended.

                                                              Beautiful clean and modern apartment, great view!

                                                              This apartment is very new and fully equipped and has a great garage + 3 terracces with view to the lake. The owner is very freindly and helpful and there was a good info folder in the apartment where you could find all info you might need during your stay at Lake Maggiore. Just good to know that it is uphill about 800 meters from the lake and town, so if you're not in good condition for walking, you'd need to use a car or taxi to go to places. Train station is about 500 meters away (trains to Stresa, Locarno etc. we recommend the Lake Maggiore Express)
