We had a wonderful five day break in Stresa and we were very happy with the accomodation at Affittacamere via Mazzini. Our room on the first floor was clean and nicely decorated and overlooked one of the narrow streets below. ( good for people watching) Breakfast was continental and consisted of the usual croissants, cakes and cold meats and cheeses, fruit and yoghurts. The food was excellent and plentiful. The staff in reception,( in the restaurant below) were very approachable and friendly. We had trouble booking our return trip to the airport and Carlo? kindly sorted it out for us. We only had an evening meal there once which was traditional and very nice. The location of this hotel is 5 minutes from the ferry terminal and is perfect for visiting the Borromean Islands and the rest of the lake. We bought a two day ticket that allowed us to go on the Lake Maggiore Express on the first day and a trip to Isola Bella and Isola Dei Pescatori on the second day.The cost was 42 euros and was worth every penny! The Lake Maggiore Express is a must. The trip takes you up by train from Stresa to Domodossola. Here you transfer to the Centovalli train with large viewing windows with panoramic views of small villages and incredible mountains. The train journey is spectacular and crosses the border into Switzerland dropping down into Locarno where it terminates. We were told that Ascona was a far nicer place and took a ferry to spend a few hours there before travelling back to Stresa on a lovely 3 hour sail. Isola Bella is also a must to visit. The palace and gardens are so beautiful and the white peacocks are spectacular!! Stresa is a great base for exploring the lake and has a lovely village atmosphere . We will be revisiting next year!!
