“What a view!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

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 and be aware there are no soft carpets anywhere! So as long as you don't mind quite a few stairs and being up a hill, I can assure you the views make it all worthwhile!

The house very well set up with everything you could need. The garden really private and lots of different spots to hang out. Fairly sunny aspect, especially the morning, and I'd imagine in high summer the shady spots come into their own. Simon and Donatella met up with us in Stresa to show us the way to the house as we got there in the evening, and were very helpful with local hints, and best of all Simon manhandled my wife's luggage up the stairs for me! Don't miss the local restaurant either, great friendly service, walkable which after a bottle of wine is a good thing, and a nice change from the more tourist fare in Stresa itself.

Highlights: Lake Orta (bit quieter than Maggiore) esp Orta village itself; gardens with animals just East of Stresa (my daughter loved it, but nice stroll for adults too) ; the L1 hiking track passes right past your door on the way to top of the Mount (fantastic for an early morning run); endless gelato (except when 3yo gets sugar high at 10pm!); Isola Bella (though try to avoid the weekends)....and those views every morning when you pull the curtains!!

Thanks to Simon and Donatella, I'm sure we'll be back.

We stayed one week in Casa Alice and had a great time. The view from almost any room in the house, the veranda and the garden was stunning. The house itself has a lot of charm and the kitchen is very well equipped (everything from Alessi). Booking was uncomplicated and Simon and his wife were very friendly and gave us numerous hints what to visit and where to go which was very helpful. Overall a very beautiful place that we can only recommend.
