Stayed in 2nd floor apartment, with a double room and twin bunk beds. Very comfortable, spacious, well equipped . Brilliant location, 3 mins from ferry terminal and town centre. The view from the living room and bedrooms is just outstanding. Both bedrooms have a balcony. There was road noise at the weekend, but on second floor is a bit further... More

We stayed in apartment 3 with the terrace and upstairs bedroom for 7 nights. We chose this apartment for its location, size and spectacular view over the lake. It's close to the ferry terminal, CarreFour supermarket, restaurants, shops etc... We didn't have a car and quite frankly didn't need one whilst staying in Stresa. There are around 60 steps from...

Great little apartment with authentic italian feel! Awesome location, central and convenient! Had a car but didn't really need it as everything was in walking distance. Rosanna was a pleasure to deal with - helped us get to know the area and equipped the apartment well. Great experience!!! Thank u Rossana!! Felicia e Daniele

The apartment on the second floor with one double room, a lounge and a bunk bed is a bit dated in terms of furniture and services but it is ok for a holiday home. The view is great and despite is on the main road is not that noisy (we went in low season though) and it is not spoiled... More

Stresa @ Lake Maggoire is a stunning location for a holiday. Do not miss having a drink at Sky Bar – Hotel La Palma! Where you stay requires some careful consideration due to the very steep slope that accommodation, not on lake shore, is to be found. We made holiday choices based on not having a car and this being... More

Rossana is the nicest hostess and this is a fabulous premises. Location, Location, Location!!! Myself and my two cousins were here for four days and really loved the place. She gave us loads of practical advice/ help and was a real pleasure to deal with. This is perfect when you want a home away from home instead of a hotel... More

My wife and I had a great time staying in the second-floor apartment (that's the third floor in the US) with our kids. The location is great, right by the lakeside--you can't get any closer unless you're able to sleep in the lake itself--and the view is fantastic, with the lake stretching out before you and the Alps in the...

My wife and I have just spent a week at the wonderful Il Viaggiatore (The Traveller) self catering apartments in Stresa on Lake Maggiore. We chose the top floor apartment, and were so glad that we did. On arrival, we met the lovely Rossana who instantly made us feel at home and was very friendly toward us. Rossana is extremely...

We stayed in the apartment just before the main season started. The rooms are clean and have a beautiful view to the lake. Rosanna helped us to prepare the program for the excursions and recommended restaurants in Stresa. Everything is in walking distance. The only disadvantage might be during the main season, to find a parking close to the building.
