About giuseppe paracchini

The apartments are in the house where we live, in the other ones live also our daughters with their family.

I personally did the restructuring of all the whole house some years ago, because I built several villas during my life as work.

The whole house was built by my father in law, in the 1943, by a famous architect from Milan, and it is characterized by huge pink granite blocks, unique in their typology.

The place is very quiet and the garden is luxuriant, especially in the spring.

We are present in the house for all the guest needs during their holiday.

giuseppe paracchini purchased this apartment in 1949

Why giuseppe paracchini chose Stresa

My father in law lived in Milan, where he had a sewing firm, he built this house because he loved very much to come to Stresa to spend his holiday, with his family.

He was a lake lover, and a very sportsman, so Stresa was the perfect place for him, and not far from Milan.

The view is incredible and the tranquillity is the first quality of this place.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartments are very confortable, in a beautiful place, with all the services: the near supermarket has everythings you need, the beach, the swimmingpool and the cablecar to Mottarone top are at just 5 minutes walking.

The apartments are also fully equipted with all the necessary, including Satellite Television, and the rooms are very spacious, with very big windows.

Air conditionig is not necessary, because in summer in the apartments there are not too hot.

Fantastic apartment and owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Giuseppe's apartment for 5 nights. He kindly collected us by car from the train station on our arrival and took us back to the station when we departed, which was greatly appreciated as the apartment is up the hill from Lake Maggiore. The apartment is clean and well maintained and very spacious and the owner supplied us with a great selection of brochures to make our stay run smoothly. You can view part of the lake from one side of the apartment and a beautiful garden on the other side. You do have access to the garden if you like. Giuseppe who only has a little bit of English is the most delightful man you will ever meet. He was so helpful and thoughtful and made our stay one of the most memorable and enjoyable we have had in the 10 years we have been visiting Europe. There is a well stocked small supermarket just around the corner attended by two young sisters who were very helpful. There is a much larger supermarket downtown. A few blocks from the apartment is a lovely restaurant 'La Casacina". We ate there one night and the food was wonderful. We also got a takeaway pizza one night as well. The lake is beautiful and it is well worth taking the ferry to Isola Bella and Isola Madre. Use the larger more public ferries and not the smaller motor launches as the timetables are better organised. We went also to Isola Pescatore, but this island is only full of restaurants and souvenir shops, so nothing interesting to see. We would definitely recommend this apartment.

A comfortable apartment on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Stresa is a pretty town and Lake Maggiore is magnificent. Giuseppe's apartment is well located close to Stresa and the lake and rheir many attractions but far enough away to ensure that parking and traffic aren't problems. Stresa and its cafes and restaurants and the railway station are within walking distance and there is a decent corner shop very close to the apartment.

The apartment is quiet and comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped, with a spacious living room and bedroom. On one side it has a partial view over the lake, and on the other side it looks over Giuseppe's pretty garden.

Giuseppe and his daughter were very hospitable and helpful hosts. They gave us lots of sightseeing suggestions that made our holiday even more enjoyable.

We are happy to recommend this apartment as a place to stay, and would happily stay there ourselves should we visit the area again.

Comfortable apartment, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 5 days stay at Casa Belvedere. Giuseppe kindly met us at the bus stop and gave us a helpful tour of Carciano. The apartment was clean and comfortable and was well situated for Stresa, the islands and cable car to Mottarone. The local supermarket and restaurants were only a short walk away. Thank you Giuseppe and Fiammetta, we certainly recommend your apartment to other travellers.

Very nice house, wonderful garden, friendly owner

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Stresa and especially in the house of Guiseppe an his family. Our children (2 and 4 years old) loved the wonderful garden with a lot of toys and a little playground.

A little store selling everything in reachable within 2 minutes walking distance, to the Lago Maggiore you walk 10-15 minutes.

Guiseppe took us to the mountain Mottarone and to the Orca lake. Many many thanks to you and your familiy!

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week holiday in this comfortable apartment. We enjoy cooking so made great use of the local store which was excellent.

Giuseppe and his family made us feel very welcome and as an added bonus we were met at the station and shown around the area which was much appreciated.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in this lovely apartment which had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It is furnished in traditional Italian style and was beautifully clean on our arrival. We were met at Stresa railway station by Giuseppe who also gave us a tour of the area to get our bearings.

The apartment is in a quiet location and is conveniently placed for Carciano Lido where you can catch regular boats to the islands. For getting into Stresa itself, you can either walk along the beautiful lake shore from the Lido or along a road which has a pavement. The local store is well stocked and just around the corner from the apartment.

We particularly enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings which overlooks the lovely garden and the hills beyond. There are plenty of walks one can do from the apartment.

Thank you so much Giuseppe and your lovely family for being so helpful and for giving us such a warm welcome. We will definitely be back!
