We are an Italian French couple with two young daughters living in our family home with our sister and husband living in a ground floor apartment. Lake Maggiore truly is a very beautiful location. Having holidayed in many different locations via owners direct contacts, as to how we wanted this to work, and have been really encouraged that all of guests have been happy and have not wanted for more.
Carole Testoni purchased this apartment in 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot recommend this property highly enough, due to a combination of factors. The first is the welcome we received from Carole and Umberto - they were delightful hosts and extremely thoughtful; Umberto picked us up from Baveno after we had travelled there by train so we didn't have to walk to the property; they had provided a meal for our arrival - including wine - and had stocked the kitchen with essentials to start us off on our stay; they helped us with screeds of local information about the area and places of interest to visit and also aided us in booking the Alibus shuttle for our journey to the airport for our flight home. The apartment itself is very comfortable and scrupulously clean, with balconies, in a quiet location with all facilities, including WiFi, and the kitchen is extremely well equipped - although we didn't take much advantage of this as we found a terrific restaurant a short walk away in Feriolo (recommended by Umberto!) - and was a perfect base for our holiday. The last factor was the location - we had wanted a car-free holiday, and the apartment is an easy 20-25 minutes walk into Baveno with its train station and the ferry terminal to visit the Borromean Islands and Villa Taranto, and a 10 minute stroll takes you into Feriolo with its choice of restaurants where you can catch the local bus to for example, Stresa (to catch the ferry to San Caterina and to Cannobio), and Aruna on the southerly area of the Lake, and the bus can give you change so you don't have to fiddle with unfamiliar coins.
Last but by no means least, special mention has to be made of the donkeys - particularly the new baby who was very interested in meeting new people and being stroked - a charming albeit unexpected addition to the accommodation.
We stayed for a week with Umberto and his lovely wife in their wonderful flat overlooking Lake Maggiore. The flat had the most beautiful views over the lake, was extremely spacious and the sunny terrace was lined with pretty red flowers, herbs and chilli plants.
The bedroom was comfortable and a good size, the kitchen was huge and very well equipped and the gardens were lovely. We liked the family dogs and the sheep too!
Umberto's family were a delight - they all went out of their way to make us feel so welcome, with little details like offering us dinner and drinks when we arrived late in the evening, stocking our freezer with ice and giving us jam from the trees in the garden. In addition, they kindly accommodated our request to stay another day by putting us up in one of the bedrooms in their house. They really could not have done more to make us feel welcome.
This place is perfect for a relaxing stay in Lake Maggiore. We hope to return soon!
The apartment is set on the hill side within walking distance of the Lake. and village with lots of places to see and eat. We walked every where but hired a car to transfer from the Airport. Because of the hillside location a car would be useful for the less active. Great walking area and spectacular views altogether a great part of Italy.
The apartment was well fitted and very clean. The welcome pack was the best we have had and lasted well into the week.
The hosts were helpful and very kind, a great family, there if you needed them.
We would go again, and stay at the apartment again, theres lots to see and do. A good Holiday for both of us.
Umberto and Carole and their family are very friendly and welcoming. The apartment is perfectly located a little up the hill outside Baveno with views over the lake. The accommodation is bright and clean and well equipped for self catering. We were travelling around Europe for a month so really appreciated having a washing machine. The welcome gift of pasta, home made pasta sauce, wine and chocolates for dinner on the first night and breakfast supplies with home made jams was perfect to arrive to after a long drive. It is a great position for visiting the Borromean Islands, Stresa Lake Maggiore ,Lake Orta and many lakeside villages.i
We really appreciated all that Carole and Umberto did to make our stay such a special part of our holiday and would highly recommend this as a holiday destination.
