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.

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!

Nice apartment, friendly owner, lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Giuseppe’s apartment for 4 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very nice, clean and comfortable, it has a balcony overlooking a lovely garden. Everything necessary was provided, including a lot of tourist information. The apartment is situated close to the Mottarone cable car and ferry boats, which go to the famous Borromean islands and nearby towns. There is a small supermarket and some restaurants close to the apartment. A larger supermarket is within a 25-minute walk.

Giuseppe is a very friendly and welcoming host, he picked us up from the railway station and showed us around the neighborhood.

We would highly recommend this place and would like to thank Giuseppe for his hospitality.

Great apartment, friendly hosts, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment as a family of four with two young children and had a very nice time. The flat is clean, well-equipped, spacious and with a beautiful garden out in the back which guests are allowed to use. It's a ten-minute walk to the lido to catch boats to the island and the funicular up to Mottarone, and about 20 minutes to the centre of Stresa. Convenient parking close by, friendly hosts. Highly recommended!

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.
