We, a few friends, had a good stay at Villa Margherita. The house is really close to the train station and easy to reach in a few minutes by walk. The villa with large garden and sitting area, including a big stone table, is beautiful and invites to sit outisde and to enjoy the long summer nights. All rooms are spacious and the house offers 2 huge balconies, one on each floor. The hosts, Margherita and Oswaldo, are very friendly and we could ask them for help at any time. The house is situated in a quite neighbourhood. There is a small super mercato close to the villa. There is also a small Pizzeria at the sports grounds within reach, which I also can recommend, if you don't like to walk to the centra of Stresa. It takes about 15 minutes by walk to the centre. If you are looking for a nice italian-style Villa with friendly hosts and not located in the middle of the hustle I strongly recommend this place.

We loved the decor of this beautiful house and the very comfortable lounge areas. There is a great eating place about a hundred m up the road and a good deli/supermarket a few m further. Just keep an eye on the opening times. The only comment we would make about the accommodation is the fact that 7 of us shared mostly one shower since the one over the bath was quite cramped. Other than that everything we needed in a holiday home was at hand.

This is a wonderful stately house with a fantastic view of Lake Maggiore! We really enjoyed our stay (6 adults + toddler). It was extremely comfortable for our entire family to relax. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible, but the house at least gave us enough comfort to manage! The owners Margherita and her husband Oswaldo are extremely kind and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The location is slightly outside of the town center but not more than a twenty minute walk. We did not have a car so the location was still good enough to head into town of Stresa and explore. The house itself has plenty of character and space (particularly for a large family trip). It was tastefully decorated and in great condition. Villa Margherita is a perfect base to explore Lake Maggiore, and I would not hesitate to return!

We enjoyed our time at Villa Margherita a lot - the house, the view and the location are very beautiful, peaceful and charming. This house definitely is a place to feel at home, relax and enjoy every moment of your vacation. It offers a lot of space (we were 7 people) and coziness, the garden is well taken care of and there is a barbecue as well. Generally, it is useful to come by car since it makes it easier to reach the area close by (beaches, supermarket, cities), however the train station isn't very far either (without being very noisy). È stata una bellissima vacanza, ti ringrazimo molto Claudia!
