Villa Matilda is an excellent place to stay in Stresa. Close to train station, shops
and restaurants. The owner Matteo is very friendly and helpful and made our stay
very enjoyable. We occupied both bedrooms so we had to the place to ourselves just
like our own villa. The downstairs - kitchen, lounge and garden are for guests use -
just ask Matteo.
We went on the Maggiore Express to Locarno which is a very interesting train ride to
Switzerland through the mountainside and then returned to Stresa on the boat. It is
worth getting the combined rover ticket for an additional E10 which gives unlimited
boat travel on the lake such as the 3 islands for the next day. Villa Taranto has
very beautiful english styled gardens and is well worth a visit.
We used the Alibus to get back to Malpensa airport. It is E12 and only takes 45 mins
but you have to book in advance either by email or phone. The service is dependent
on the number of passengers and as there were only about 6 passengers in total when
we left a small minibus was used and not the coach advertised. It was also about 15
mins late on arrival at Stresa.
