The owner of Rio Molino apartments was lovely and easy to work with. We were able to make a booking for the following day when we unexpectedly found ourselves in Stresa in the off season. The apartment has secure parking, a nice layout that includes a small, but functional, kitchenette and free wifi. There is even a washer, which is so handy when traveling. Thie apartment isn't terribly close to the downtown, but it is certainly walkable for those who like a good walk. This is a most excellent alternative to a hotel for those with a car who are looking for a bit more room and some comforts of home.
