A delightful place to stay
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.

A delightful place to stay
The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. Guiseppe and his family were so friendly and helpful and they really made our stay pleasureable. We were sorry to have to leave but would love to return sometime in the future.
Fantastic introduction to the Italian lakes
This was a beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped, there was ample storage in the bedroom, and free use of a washing machine with washing liquid also provided, in the apartment. We were greeted by Giuseppe and his daughter Fiammetta at the arranged time, who were delightful. They took time to explain where local amenities were, suggested excursions within the local area, and had an array of information leaflets in numerous languages. They really could not have been more helpful. They were on hand throughout our stay, but were not obtrusive. The outside portico was really as good as the photo suggested, and the garden area was beautiful, tended by Giuseppe. The home grown cucumber donated by Giuseppe for my salad was delicious. This apartment provided the opportunity to experience life in a "locals" environment, and a scenic walk, with views of the lake into Stressa. Stressa was a vibrant town, with a lovely atmosphere. There were lovely lakeside restaurants and bars, with a labyrinth of lanes and squares set back from the water providing a mix of restaurants and shops.We would absolutely recommend a stay here to everyone.
Well appointed apartment in a tranquil location
Comfortable and quiet, this ground floor apartment is located in a very large house also occupied by the owner and his family. Well furnished living and sleeping areas, with a small functional kitchen, bathroom and laundry room - this property would suit a couple looking for somewhere within reach of the main attractions but not right in the centre of things. The small garden is also good for relaxing. On-street parking is close to hand.
We ate out most of the time - except for breakfast and a few picnics, for which the nearby shop was more than adequate to supply our needs. Pizzeria within 2 minutes walk was good too if you don't fancy a trek into town, but didn't open every day during our stay.
The remaining attractions of Stresa are within reasonable walking distance for anyone of average fitness, although the elevated position of the property means that some of that walking will be uphill.
Owner Giuseppe and his daughter Fiammetta made us very welcome and provided a wealth of advice about the local area and things to do.
A great apartment well equipped and perfect location to be away from the hustle and bustle of Stresa, would recommend that you either need to enjoy walking which we do or have a car as it is a good walk from town. The family are wonderful and friendly and will go out of the way to accommodate any requests.

Quiet, comfortable apartment in a traditional Italian house . Ideal for leaving the stresses and strains of everyday life behind. Well equipped and spacious for 2 people and ideally situated for exploring Stresa and lake Maggiore. Many thanks to Guiseppe and his family for the warm welcome and would definitely stay here again.
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 tranquility is the first quality of this place.”
