    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    Our house is situated on the edge of the tiny village of Someraro, known locally as the roof of Lake Maggiore. We are just a couple of kilometres above Stresa, half-way between Milan and Switzerland, one of the most accessible areas of Italy, just 10 minutes from the motorway connecting Switzerland with the Mediterranean and 45 minutes from Italy's second international airport: Malpensa.

    It is no exaggeration to say that the views from the house and garden, offering an almost 180 degree unobstructed panorama over the magnificent Lago Maggiore, extending to Switzerland and the Alps, are sublime and surely amongst the most dramatic and beautiful in the world.

    Our house makes the ideal base for a relaxing holiday as it very close to Stresa (5 minutes by car) yet away from the hustle a...

    How to get there
    Airport: Malpensa: 24.9 mi
    Railway: Stresa: 1.2 mi
    The area is very easy to get to by plane, train, car or even boat. It is just 45 minutes by car from Italy's second most important airport: Malpensa and 5 minutes by taxi from Stresa, an important train station with fast connections to Milan and Switzerland. A major plus is that it can easily be reached from Northern Europe in one day, saving you a day on arrival and a day on departure compared to locations in Central or Southern Italy. The motorway connecting the area and Switzerland is toll-free.
    It is only fair to mention that houses in the village do not provide parking and Casa Lavander is no exception. This means holiday-makers need to find parking space in the village. This is perfectly safe. Usually it is not necessary to walk more than 100 metres from where you leave the car...

My husband and I traveled to the property with another couple and all four of us were disapointed upon our arrival. Althought we did not show this to Simon as he showed us the property. The best part of the rental is the view. It is stunning, but then the charm of the view leaves very quickly. The property sleeps... more

We stayed for a far too short 4 nights and absolutely loved the place. Ideally placed just a short drive up the hill from Stresa, the road is pretty steep and narrow, but then that's Italy for you! This whole area is quite mountainous. Our 3 yo daughter negotiated the stairs OK though younger children or the elderly would struggle... more
