Amazing views in tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Alpino. The cottage has been beautify restored, the bedrooms are spectacular with there high ceilings and exposed beams. The young man that greeted us was fabulous. I texted him from the grocery store to see what kind of coffee pot the house had and he not only sent me a picture with instructions on how to use it, he also recommended a good brand of coffee. Its easy to get to Stresa and very close to a small town that has a grocery store, butchers and bakery. The owner has recommendations of local restaurants. I would definitely go back and have recommended the house to friends.

A Wonderful Luxurious Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This place is truly amazing sitting in the grounds of the owners wonderful villa. It has the most amazing view across the lakes and because you sit higher it stays lovely and cool even in the high heat of the lakes of summer. The accommodation is beautifully equipped and laid out and with adequate space for four people if required. Entrance is via a private secure gate which is quite narrow and if you have a wide or low car you may need to check if you can access the property.

Be mindful that you are in the owners grounds and in that respect you don't have total privacy but they leave you to your own devices.

Owner was accommodating and helpful from the first contact.

Although away from Stressa its easy to get to all the key visitor sites and I think is prober much better tun being right in the middle of things.

You have to like cow bells as the felid next door has cows with bells and the noise does not stop but you soon get used to it
