The space

A stone's throw from Verbania, the pearl of the lake, and from the border with Switzerland (Cannero, Cannobio), this small apartment of 45 square meters within the historic village of Ghiffa was completely renovated in 2012, with the artistic and delicate taste of the owner, an Italian painter and illustrator (some of the decorations that adorn the interior belong to her). Maple floor, antique oak beams, stone walls, which have been plastered only to make the rooms more comfortable and clean, the unit is part of a larger villa of the beginning of the nineteenth century (also recently renovated), but it is independent.
It is located in an area where no cars can access (the car park is only 200 meters far), surrounded by the silence and the peace of the Maggiore’s Riviera. A small beach is accessible by foot to less than 100 meters from the house. Several walks start in the direction of the hill. Among them, with a climb of about 15 minutes, you can reach the famous Sacro Monte (Holy Mount) of Ghiffa, since 2003 UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Through a separate entrance (about 15 meters along the small street of stone close to the property) it is possible to access a portion of the garden reserved for guests, with a gorgeous 180 degree view of Lake Maggiore.
The two rooms are organized as follows: the living room, with a little kitchen and the dining area, is equipped with a sofa bed that becomes easily a double bed; the bedroom has one single bed on the ground and a double bed suspended in midair, about 2 meters in height (not suitable for children, but very amusing for adults!).

Nice wee place. We had bad weather, so was a bit gloomy not being able to get up to the garden and difficult to dry wet clothes without heating or clothes dryer. Double bed is really high up! Wi-fi too temperamental to rely on, if you need it. Boats don't stop at Ghiffa after mid…

We are very satisfied with our stay in Michela's apartment. The garden is fantastic, even if all houses are very close to each other in Ghiffa you still feel private. The view is amazing. We had a bit of a slow wifi the first day but it got better.
