“No empty promises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

La Viralda is the perfect for those who seek privacy and easy access to populated areas at the same time. The large garden provides enough privacy, the property itself being situated near the quiet stable pasture and on the outskirts of the forest. The surroundings are quiet and provide real break from crowded city life. Yet it is also close enough to the main road leading to Castelletto Ticino center and nearby town of Arona on the shores of Lago Maggiore. Reaching nearest beach takes only few minutes, while for those who wish to visit nearby cities and even neighboring countries, it is perfectly connected to main roads and highways.

The property itself is clean, very well equipped and well kept. It is also amazingly decorated and ideal for allergy sufferers. The property guardian, Mrs Cinzia Tosi has provided regular change of bed-sheets and towels, something you do not encounter very often while renting homes in Italy in the summer. There are simply no empty promises, everything is as it should be or was presented in the description and guarantees enjoyable stay.

We felt really welcomed from the start and all our needs were well taken care of. I would recommend La Viralda whether you are looking for a quiet escape, family time and laid-back hours by the lake or vice versa busy, adventurous and entertaining stay.
For us it was both and more than anything made us wish we could actually live there.

“A charming apartment in the pretty Italian Lake region”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The apartment was elegant and spacious, with stylish furniture. It was airy yet cool even on hot days. The apartment was well equipped with wifi a definite bonus. Milan Malpensa airport, Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta were very close and the centre of Milan only an hour's drive away. A night stop over in Verona for the Opera festival with a train ride from there to Venice for the day, capped of a lovely week in Northern Italy. The owner was very hospitable and keen to ensure we had a comfortable stay. The only drawback is the lack of local shops, but there are supermarkets only a short drive away and it was a bit quiet for the teenagers.

“What a find - Get in quickly before it becomes too popular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

I chanced upon this outstanding property through an Italian friend and had a most enjoyable stay with my daughter and her family. Very handy for the airport and close to Lake Maggiore. Beautiful surroundings.Roomy & Immaculate inside with all mod cons and a real diamond which cannot be faulted.
Outstanding.

Il soggiorno alla Viralda ci ha lasciato un ricordo che non dimenticheremo e che di certo vorremo rivivere! La casa vacanza e' ampia, luminosa , munita di ogni confort , pulitissima e ubicata in una zona tranquilla che la rende meta ottimale x una vacanza rilassante in mezzo al verde che si estende a perdita d'occhio ! Il grande giardino privato ci ha consentito di far giocare le nostre figlie in tutta serenità . La casa si trova in una zona strategica per raggiungere in pochi minuti di auto splendide località turistiche sia lacustri che montane. Un ringraziamento particolare a Cinzia : sempre disponibile e preparatissima nel consigliare mete da visitare, percorsi naturalistici, ottimi ristoranti ... Insomma una vacanza indimenticabile sotto ogni punto di vista : relax, natura, gusto, compagnia ! La consiglieremo ai nostri amici . Ancora grazie!! E .... A presto !! Massimo Stefania e le piccole Rachele e Matilde
