Great location and Excellent customer service

  • 5 of 5

Stresa is a beautiful town and staying at the Grande in the middle of this Italian gem was a real treat. We were there for a week and enjoyed the quiet and comfort of this apartment. It's close to everything, including a really good supermarket where we were able to buy necessities.

I couldn't figure out the Italian instructions for the washing machine, but through the miracle of WiFi, an email to Chantal brought a friend of Antoinetta's who helped me out. It was a pleasure to correspond with Chantal, and Antoinetta was a delight, even though we had a slight language barrier. Laughter and good will overcomes most obstacles.

I would highly recommend this apartment for an enjoyable stay in Stresa.

Great Apartment in Ideal location

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely apartment with real character. It was well equipped with everything you could need, in an excellent location in the centre of the township, 1 min from cafes, buses & boat access to the Lake but very quiet. We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed every moment Stresa is a beautiful spot.

Absolutely wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the smaller studio apartment "Antonietta Piccolo" on the ground floor which belongs to the same owner. We had an absolutely excellent stay in Antonietta's apartment. The location is extremely convenient, very close to the lake (1 min walk), close to restaurants/bars. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable and we have nothing negative to say at all. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday. If we return to Stresa in the future, we will stay at the Antonietta's apartment again. Highly recommend to anyone!

Location très bien située avec toutes les commodités.

Accueil très chaleureux.

Dommage qu'il n'y est pas de climatisation au dernier étage... mais tellement agréable de flâner le soir en centre ville ou au bord du lac...

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour votre gentille appréciation. Je suis contente que la location vous a plu. Pour la climatisation, je suis désolée mais on ne peut rien y faire. La location se trouve dans le centre historique de Stresa qui est très bien conservé donc on n'a pas le droit d'installer les climatisateurs (plutôt moches et bruyants) sur les bâtiments de cet ancien quartier. Heureusement c'est très rare à Stresa qu'il fasse si chaud comme ce mois de juillet. Chantal Rowley (agente locations)

Séjour très agréable dans ce bel appartement en triplex très bien situé, en plein centre piéton et juste au bord du lac. L'appartement est propre et en bon état et suffisamment grand pour toute la famille!

perfect for our family break

  • 5 of 5

we had a great time in stresa. the apartment was just perfect for our family of four with two small children aged 2 and 4. the owner met us on our arrival and showed us to the apartment, which was very clean and as described. our kids loved their room on the top floor and they must have been comfortable because they both slept great for all four nights. the bed in our room was very comfortable as well. we cooked at home several times and found the kitchen had everything we needed. we also did laundry, which is conveniently located within the apartment. the wifi also worked great. we also made use of the high chair for our two year old. the location of the apartment is perfect, a block from the main piazza with the its shops and restaurants. and a block from the water. we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go with the little ones and did not need a car at all. additionally, there is a park with a nice playground very nearby. all in all, it was a great vacation, and we are hoping to return to stay here again this autumn.

Car: not necessary

Stresa is a beautiful, elegant town on Lake Maggiore, at the foot of the Italian Alps. It offers the ideal place to relax or to enjoy a more active holiday.

It makes a perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the Lake Maggiore. The cablecar which takes you 1500 mt up the Mottarone Mountain is nearby and from there you can admire the fabulous view over the Alps and their 7 lakes. Other famous attractions include the hermitage of Santa Caterina, the Angera fortress and the botanical gardens of Villas Pallavicino and Taranto and a cablecar-ride away are the Alpinia gardens which were laid out in the 1930s.

Lake Orta with its beautiful island of San Giulio is a 30-minute drive and Lake Mergozzo is nearby as well. You can even take a full-day boat tour all the way up the lake to Switzerland (Ascona and Locarno) or to view the Belle Epoque villas and hotels that grace the shores and visit other picturesque lakeside towns such as Laveno, Intra and Baveno.

For keen walkers and nature-lovers, there is the Val Grande which is the largest nature reserve in Italy. Many sports are available on Lake Maggiore (swimming, canoeing, sailing, water-skiing, diving, wind surfing ...) and on the slopes of Mottarone in summer - hiking, mountain biking (guided tours available on request), paragliding, hang-gliding, horse riding and in winter - skiing, snowboarding, walks with snowshoes...

It is less than an hour from Milan Malpensa Airport (45 km) and 85 km from Milan itself. A regular shuttle service called 'Alibus' runs from Milano Malpensa and Linate and costs less than 15 Euros for a single. Free parking 200-300m away and pay-parking at the lake itself. There is no private parking with this apartment. But you don't really need a car in Stresa.
