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.

Very helpful caring owners and a well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had just four nights in this property in Stresa and we left feeling that we wished had booked a little longer.

Guiseppi is a really lovely gentleman and so helpful.

He picked us up from the railway station and gave us a little tour of Stresa pointing out where most things were, e.g. the main shopping centre, the embarkation point for the ferry and the cable-car point. We were grateful for the lift as the apartment is uphill from the town, not too far away, but too steep when carrying suitcases. Guiseppi also transported us back to the station at the end of our stay, for which we were most grateful and he also gave us a little memento of our visit to Stresa too.

While we were in Stresa we visited the three off-shore islands, which are an absolute must-see visit.

On another day we ascended the mountain behind Stresa in the cable-car and the chair-lift to the very top where there are wonderful views over Lake Maggiore and then in the opposite direction another fantastic view of the beautiful snowy peaks of the Alps. Coming down to the mid-point of the change station of the cable-car we visited the Alpine Gardens which was another marvellous experience with even more fantastic views of Lake Maggiore.

The apartment itself is well equipped, with cooking utensils, washing machine and plenty of space and storage for clothes if you are staying for a longer period that we did. It was lovely to have the balcony overlooking the splendid garden and this was our favourite place for eating our evening meal. A local shop just two minutes walk away sells everything you need if you are self-catering, fruit, vegetables, bread, cakes etc. This shop sells delicious home-cooked food. A local lady cooks pasta dishes and gorgeous puddings which are sold in the shop - so no need to go out to eat in a restaurant because this is quality food.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable in every way.

We would certainly go back to this apartment if we decide to visit Stresa again.

We enjoyed our week in the lovely, quiet and spacious apartment in Stresa.

Sitting on the little balcony, overlooking the lovely garden was a treat. Mr. Paracchini was most gracious and helpful. Location is good, a little walk uphill from the lake. Would stay again.

Clean comfortable apartment

Giuseppe and his daughter were very helpful. Giuseppe met us from the Alibus stop and dropped us off there at the end of the stay. Beautiful views of the lake; lovely quiet garden filled with birdsong, 10 minutes walk down to the lakeside with its beautiful scenery.

Beautiful, secluded and peaceful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect apartment for a family stay. We stayed with our 1 year old, the high chair and cot were provided which the family had made up with bedding and soft toys; ideal! Giuseppe and Fiametta were incredibly welcoming and friendly as were all the local people in Carciano. It’s a short walk down Via Paradiso into Stresa, and the view lives up to its name. There’s more than enough to see and do locally, although on peak days the local tourist hot spots are incredibly busy. The balcony is an afternoon and evening sun trap and looks out onto a private garden which you have access to, and includes childrens’ toys.

We had a relaxing and very enjoyable stay!
