About the Owner

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.

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Giuseppe's beautiful appartment in June 2016. The appartment is large, very well equipped and located on the ground floor of the block. Giuseppe is an enthusiastic gardener and welcomes its use by his guests.

The apartment is located within easy reach of a well stocked general store (Gloria's) and a pizza/pasta cafe. The ferry terminal is about ten minutes walk away and the main shopping area of Stresa is a further ten minute walk along the fabulous promenade.

Giuseppe and his daughter Fiametta were fantastic hosts. They made us feel very welcome, not only meeting us and dropping us back at the train station, but also taking us on an orientation tour of the town when we arrived.

The hospitallity and warmth of Giuseppe, Fiametta and their family made our stay in Stresa one we will never forget

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect holiday in Stresa. Many thanks to Giuseppe and his lovely family, who made us very welcome and were so helpful. We travelled by train – very easy on Eurostar to Paris and then on Stresa Station through the Alps via Geneva. Giuseppe met us from the station and showed us just how amazingly beautiful the area is and things we might need to know – the road down to the lake, the best places to eat and where the ferry and cable car are located. The apartment is spacious and clean and we had everything we needed. The local shop also had very friendly staff and we enjoyed sampling local foods and wines. The lakeside and town square are a short walk from the apartment which made it very easy to visit the Borromean Islands and other towns around the lake without a car. It is a short 10 minute walk to the station to go a little further and the trains are cheap and punctual. Giuseppe is so knowledgeable about the area. We felt that we got to see and understand more than the average tourist. Thanks to Giuseppe and his family. Grazie Mille!

Stresa Lake Maggiore

Lovely Lake Maggiore

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two week holiday at Stresa staying with Giuseppe and his lovely family.From the ease of booking and traveling to the apartment to the last day when Giuseppe came to see us off in the taxi, we were made to feel so welcome by everyone.The apartment is situated in a small lovely village just outside Stresa. As the village is set in the hillside you have a wonderful view of the lake as you walk down to the town of Stresa and along the lake shore.The village has a great shop with all you need, fresh bread,meat and a deli counter, so not having a car wasn't a problem for us. The apartment was very clean and comfortable with plenty of room for us. We cooked several times and had all the utensils including coffee maker which was fantastic. For the first day food for breakfast and coffee had kindly been left out for us. it was nice to stay with such wonderful hosts, even taking us to see some beautiful places of interest around the lake.

Grazie Giuseppe and family for all your kindness.

Review Casa Belvedere

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Stresa. Positive: hospitality was great. Location is great. and a few minutes walk to the small public beach, public piscine and the boats to the isles. Very clean apartment and enough space for living. Good quality / price ratio. No parking problems. Good small supermarket. The beautiful Stresa is on walking distance, it is difficult to find a parking place in Stresa. Negative: internet connection is hardly working during the day. It is quite dark inside the apartment on the ground floor (cloister like atmosphere). A lot of noise during the night and early morning due to cars passing close to the window of the sleeping room. No dishwasher. Hot water pressure quite low in the shower.

great location at Lago Maggiore

  • 5 of 5

Me and my elderly parents spent great holidays in Carciano - Stresa. Mostly thanks to Mr. Giuseppe Paracchini and his wonderful family.

The description of the appartment, its location, layout and facilities were accurate and we found this place very comfortable, clean and cosy. The owner prepared a lot of the information and every time he and his family were ready to help. I would definetly recommend this place to other tourists.

From the Owner

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.
