  • We can highly recommend the accommodation

  • We loved our 11 night stay here. Beautiful appartment in a beautiful location. Very peaceful, with great swimming in the lake. It's on the bus route to Intra and Cannobio, with easy ferry access from Intra to Stresa and beyond. If you love palaces, gardens, cable cars, markets, amazing views and walks in the hills then book now!

    Astrid2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely few days in this fantastic location. It is so peaceful with stunning lake views. There are good places to eat locally if you want to walk. A 5 minute drive opens lots of options up. There are great places to explore and the guides in the apartment are a great help.

    Steve2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view and amazing place to enjoy quietly the Lago Maggiore. We did stay only 3 nights and it was not enough! We didn't meet Anna but the self check in was easy and well organized.

    Clemence2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • The stay with Anna was really awesome. The apartment is exactly as described and has everything you could need. For two people it has the perfect size and the location is gorgeous. With the access to the lake you can quickly in the lake and in Ghiffa there is super delicious pizza at O Sole Mio (the pizza "Rudy" is perfect for those who do not always want the same ... easy to get in). We had some trouble checking in but these were quickly resolved and all in all it was the perfect vacation. Thank you Anna :)

    Katarina2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • A very pleasant flat with all equipment required. The host was very reactive and eager to make our stay comfortable. Being able to have a swim at any time of the day was really fantastic and we also appreciated very much the walk along the lake and the peace and quiet of Ghiffa. There's a little info point 5' away from the flat, which is very practical too. Just a problem : our stay was too short !!

    Dominique2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location, right on the lake. Studio very nicely decorated. Unfortunately no bakery in town

    Ruth2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Anna's place is a wonderful stay ! Nicely calm, so close to the see that you hear the waves sipping. The interior is beautiful and great, provides you with all you need. The location provides a lot of opportunities such as restaurant, gelateria, places to take a bath in the sun and go for swimming. Absolut astonishing: the beautiful view out of the window across the Lago Maggiore. So, having a glass of wine in the evening watching the lights across water is the perfect end of a wonderful day the stay provides.

    La nostra casa nel centro storico di Porto Valtravaglia è piccola ma appena ristrutturata e molto accogliente. E' ideale per single oppure coppie con o senza figli che vogliano godersi qualche giorno di relax nella incantevole cornice del lago Maggiore. Situata in una antica corte lombarda, offre un cortile interno discreto e riparato. Codice Identificativo Regionale (CIR): 012114-CNI-00055 Caratteristiche: 1 stanza con letto matrimoniale (2 ospiti) + divano letto per 1 ospite extra
    L'appartamento è su 3 piani e pensato per 2 persone. Per situazioni di emergenza in cucina è disponibile un divano letto con altri 2 posti letto. Sono presenti scale. Gli animali domestici di piccola taglia sono benvenuti. Jude, Minnie e Cagliostro sono i nostri gatti, che girano liberi per il cortile: la presenza di cani – soprattutto di grossa taglia – potrebbe rappresentare un problema.
    Il paese in cui viviamo è piuttosto piccolo ma incantevole. Per chi arriva con i mezzi pubblici oppure per chi non vuole usare la macchina, si possono raggiungere le spiagge del lago con pochi minuti di passeggiata. In paese (200/300 metri di distanza) si trova tutto quello che serve: supermercato, edicola, bar, banca, ufficio postale. In 10 minuti d'auto si raggiungono città come Laveno e Luino, con negozi di ogni genere. Luino è famosa per il suo storico mercato del mercoledì che attrae ogni anno migliaia di turisti. Ponte Tresa ha un mercato più raccolto ma organizzato di sabato. Le altre città della zona sono facilmente raggiungibili: Varese dista solo 30 minuti d'auto, Milano 90 minuti circa. Siamo anche a 10 minuti dalla Svizzera: Lugano si raggiunge in circa 30 minuti, Locarno in 60. Dalla spiagge di Caldè a quelle di Maccagno, in pochi minuti si incontrano luoghi ideali per fare il bagno durante l'estate. Escursioni e borghi Per chi ama camminare oppure usare la bicicletta, sono disponibili numerosi sentieri e percorsi. Dalle passeggiate sul lago fino al trekking nei luoghi magici che circondano il lago Maggiore, la scelta è infinita. I numerosi laghi della zona possiedono piste ciclabili e pedonali (lago di Varese, lago di Monate ecc.) per passeggiate in totale sicurezza. Il parco regionale Campo dei Fiori offre una rete di sentieri ben segnalati e panoramici (Forte di Orino ecc.). La vicina Svizzera presenta percorsi incredibili e panoramici lungo tutto il perimetro del lago e anche all'interno: davvero c'è l'imbarazzo della scelta.
  • Very nice little apartment, fully equippedjforjcooking and ideally located for road cycling tours around the lake. Thomas is very nice and helpful

    Jasmin2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great position, spotlessly clean, modern interior and warm welcome from Thomas. Met our needs perfectly.

    Elaine2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is small but very comfortable, well furnished and organized, perfect for spending a short holiday as a couple. We were happy to find impeccable cleaning and a well-equipped kitchen, with even a coffee maker. I thank Thomas for being a very kind, precise and extremely helpful host!

    Giulia2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at the vacation house, everything was fine! Thomas is a very nice host and gave us tips for the region. Porto Valtravaglia is a very small and more quiet village which is great to relax and to have a nice walk. 2 minutes away from the lake, supermarket around the corner, train station in Porto Valtravaglia (we did a trip to Milano by train)!

    Julia2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thomas and Emma were really great hosts! They were super quick to respond to every message and it was nice to have them close by in case we needed anything. The place is perfect for one or two people. We were able to cook every day and save some money, and the location was really good to explore all of the areas around the lake. As mentioned in the description, the place has very steep stairs and the bedroom has a very low, sloped ceiling; however, this wasn’t a problem for us and we knew what to expect ahead of time. Overall, the apartment is very nice and clean and the hosts are very welcoming and friendly. We would definitely stay there again!

    Lacy2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • A nice clean place and base for all kind of tours/trips/hiking etc. Thomas and his wife are very friendly and hospitable.

    Andreas2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation of Thomas and Emma is small and cozy, equipped with everything you need. The house is clean and thoughtful. Thomas and Emma as hosts are very welcoming and helpful. We liked it there very much. Nearby (about 100m) is a free parking.

    Melanie2019-10-04T00:00:00Z

    Il B&B Il Gatto Nero è situato in un casolare del 1904 con struttura in legno e pietra Immerso nei boschi a 700 mt.s.l.m. ( collina sopra Castelveccana) con stupenda vista lago. A 5 KM. dalle Spiagge, 80 km. Da Milano, 30 km. Da Varese, 40 km. Da Lugano. Adatto per relax fisico e mentale La strada di montagna ( curve) asfaltata che porta alla nostra casa si percorre tranquillamente in 10 minuti d'auto. Noi siamo amanti degli animali, abbiamo cani, diversi gatti, un asino e una capretta
    Questa camera é la più piccola e semplice ma dalla finestra si vede il lago ed è esposta al sole. La nostra casa si trova in un punto con una meravigliosa vista sul lago Maggiore ed essendo tra due valli è vicina sia al Lago ( 5 km.) sia alle strade che collegano la valle alle grandi città come Varese, Como, Milano, Aeroporto Malpensa a soli 45 minuti in auto, Lugano e Locarno, Bellinzona e tante altre. È un punto di partenza comodo per visitare i vari luoghi di interesse ed è allo stesso tempo un luogo dove alla sera si può riposare e godersi la bellezza del paesaggio in tutto relax. In estate sulla terrazza e in inverno davanti al camino ...sarete avvolti dalla magica atmosfera di questo luogo. Portiamo avanti la nostra scelta di vita rurale e sostenibile con l'ambiente da oltre 20 anni. Troverete prodotti biologici sia per il bagno sia per la colazione. Prodotti locali o di nostra produzione. Niente plastica monouso. Cambio degli asciugamani solo su richiesta . Dispositivi per il risparmio dell'acqua . Lampade a basso consumo.
    La nostra casa si trova a SAN ANTONIO ( 700 mt.s.l.m.) frazione di CASTELVECCANA Dalla terrazza si gode di una magnifica vista sul Lago Maggiore . La casa è circondata da boschi. Qui è tutto " più lento" in armonia con i ritmi della natura. Abbiamo diversi animali domestici e tanti animali selvatici che " passeggiano " intorno alla casa! Il silenzio e l'assenza di inquinamento luminoso ci riportano indietro nel tempo e ci permettono di godere spettacoli naturali ( ad esempio uno splendido cielo stellato ) che purtroppo sono diventati una rarità. Siamo " fuori dal mondo" :)
  • It was a great stay. If you are looking not just a place to stay, but something like country residence of your friends where you will feel like at home, then you just found what you’re looking for. This is a place with a rich history, stunning view from the windows and many interesting places in the surrounding area. The house is situated almost on the top of the mountain and was a legendary hotel in this area. The family that owns this house nowadays extremely beautiful people. Their place first of all not about the business, it’s more about lifestyle and family values. They will greet you very warm and give you a feeling like you are the part of their family. I’ll definitely want to come back to this beautiful house.

    Eugene2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were on our way to Toskany and stopped for one night at Luca's place. His farmhouse was very nice - we recommend to drive there with GPS data Cosy room, hot shower, lovely breakfast - everything we needed (stayed there in February).

    Caroline2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, amazing people.

    frédéric2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • The location is simply magnificent, the night view of the lake from the church takes your breath away. Luca, his family and their army of cats welcomed us with warmth and treated us very well. The road to reach the location has several hairpin bends, but it is not too complex to travel, even at night. More than recommended

    David2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place!

    Антон2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing! A breathe of fresh air in the nature, with cute animals (mostly cats as announced), nice old guest house and good conversations with Lucas! I recommend!

    Julien2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended!

    Martina2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you love animals, enjoy driving on steep and narrow mountain roads, like to have your coffee with a view of a mountain lake, and want to meet interesting people, look no further. A super nice family with interesting stories to tell will be your hosts, you will be surrounded by animals, and you will be able to forget about city life in their albergo.

  • Elegant, fully equipped apartment in the lovely town of Ghiffa. A unique experience of seeing behind the gates of a real family home.

    Coreen2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect. I can definitly recommend the apartment! It was very clean, very nice and modern. There is a nespresso machine and a well equipped kitchen. It is also possible to use the pool and beach from the hotel. The communication with Valerio was easy and it was no problem that we arrived later than expected. We had a great time in Ghiffa.

    Selina And Stefan2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Valerio's accommodation is very spacious and well equipped. You can sit in the garden and have a beautiful view of the lake. Unfortunately, the nearest supermarket can only be reached by car. The place itself is small but you can eat a great pizza around the corner. Valerio is incredibly helpful and does what he can so that nothing is missing. We would book again at any time.

    Jules2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • What to say, except that the place is in the image of its host ... simply exceptional. Thank you Valerio, for your welcome, your responsiveness and your kindness. See you soon because it is about us will come back. We highly recommend.

    François2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended.

    Stéphane2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We spent with our two children a very nice holiday in Valerios apartment. The apartment is very stylish and practical and it is all there, what the Hausfrauenherz (Nespresso machine, dishwasher, oven, induction cooker, good cookware, NO vacuum cleaner;)) and also the men and children's heart (WLAN, modern large TV) desires. Valerio lives next door and is very helpful, attentive and generous. To live in Ghiffa was perfect, as it is not as crowded as the larger towns on the Lago. So we have found at the hotel's own, well-kept beach anytime free beach chairs. Excursions, restaurants, attractions and shopping are within a few minutes drive. We can well imagine booking this accommodation again; It is certainly beautiful in spring or autumn (because less hot and less mosquitoes). In any case, we highly recommend Valerios apartment!

    Ritalis2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice location with lake views from the terrace. Lovely little "secret" path down to the lake - completely undisturbed. Plenty of space at a nearby hotel with pool and plenty of sun loungers down to the lake. Nice to rent a boat at the hotel too. No air conditioning, and with degrees of 30 and above, the apartment is very hot. Stylish apartment - containing everything. However, not so much service, so you have to wash frequently. But fantastic host - don't think they exist better

    Charlotte2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Valerio’s apartment is beautiful, comfortable and very stylish. A 10 minute walk up the mountain is a lovely little mercato - great work out and fantastic view over the lake - and then you come home with panini for breakfast! We loved the pool and hotel beach close by, excellent drinks at the little beach bar! Verbania, is only a ten minute drive away, shops, food and a picturesque old town centre. Must do: visit the garden of Villa Tarantino in Verbania! We will come again! Valerio is definitely a superhost - after the only night with rain, we found umbrellas at our door in the morning. We found a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge when we arrived and he treated us to a drink at the beach bar on our last evening.

    Veronique2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Laura is very welcoming and her house is gorgeous with lovely paintings on the walls. The course is also great and you could quietly do your barbecue. Be careful though, the garden is not totally next to the house.

    Thomas2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Laura‘s beautiful home is the ideal spot for a family holiday. The house is large, comfortable and interesting offering everything a group could need; from the courtyard frescoes to the private garden, this property is a real find. The location is perfect for visiting the local towns and places of interest as well as being only a short drive away from Switzerland. Outdoor sports and pursuits, including watersports, cycling, and horse riding are on the doorstep and there are a number of places to shop and eat, very nearby on the shores of Lago Maggiore. Laura was always available for advice and local tips, a great host. Only wish we could have stayed longer!

    Nicky2018-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Laura has been a great host. Communication was easy and fast. She is very welcoming and nice, and the house is just amazing! A typical ancient Italian house tastefully decorated and with everything you might need.

Supermarket, restaurant, and the lake are only a few minutes away from the house. Simone is a very friendly and attentive host. We especially like to thank him for suggesting a car repair shop for our broken car and taking care of the communication with the shop owner.

  • Nice and cosy tiny house, about 10 minutes to walk to the lake (with restaurants) and a small playground. A small supermarket is also a 10 minute walk away. Fabio is really nice and friendly and helpful on finding our way around Castelveccana

    Michael2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is beautifully decorated and looks very comfortable. When you enter the apartment, you are right in an open beautiful kitchen. There are many things available: salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, spices .... The living and sleeping area is located on the upper floor. The staircase looks very nice, but has no railing. Attention with children. And thanks for the care: baby travel cot & high chair. The open, green courtyard invites you to lazy. Thank you for everything! :-)

    Manuela2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great, cozy and clean apartment with private garden and super equipped kitchen. The hosts were very friendly and flexible. We could make great trips with our children (beaches, market, forest ... etc). A little tip from us: take good anti-mosquito spray.

    Rahel2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Fabio is a good host and provides some great local tips. Make sure you try Veronicas church and the soul kitchen in Castello, aswell as Frodo waterfall nearby, all fantastic. The property is nice, clean and in a very peaceful location. Would stay again! :)

    Aaron2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice host, excellent communication and help. Cute house and nice garden. We found everything we needed, also for our 3-years-old daughter. We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful area, we will come back for sure. Thank you very much Fabio for having us at your place!

    Katja2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fabio is so very nice and hospitable. We loved the beautifully modernized old flat and the nice little garden. It's a 10 minutes walk to the beautiful lakeside with just a few restaurants and a nice beach. It's a very specific atmosphere, not very touristic, calm and relaxed. Perfect!

    Annekathrin2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Fabio and Serenella are great hosts - super flexible and very good and always accessible. They welcomed us and our children (1 and almost 3 years) very warmly. The house was absolutely the photos and the description. There was also everything you could wish for (spices, coffee, oil, shampoo, mosquito repellent etc). We really enjoyed the charm of the older house, especially the big soft beds and the private garden. The place is very attractive and has great beaches. In addition, the property is in a great location for exploring Lake Maggiore. Fabio and Serenella provide many information brochures for tourists. We are completely satisfied with our choice and can recommend this AirBnB to anyone.

  • We were family with 2 guys (11 and 17) there. The apartment was very nice as in the pictures. Typically Italian, old walls but very nicely decorated. In the kitchen waited for us a basket of gifts. In the kitchen were many spices and oil available. Fabio had plenty of tips for the guests prepared: books on Lake Maggiore and self-made notes with directions. Super experience was cable car ride in Laveno at 1000m altitude. The view was breathtaking. The waterfall in Froda was also worth seeing (small hike about 20 minutes). The beach in Calde was also reached in 15 minutes. It was a beautiful bay with very few tourists (more on weekends). Clear water. We were also in Milan by train from the stop Porto Valtravaglia drove (about 1.50 hrs, € 25.00 one way for us all). We bought tickets for the Milan Cathedral online (Fabio's website page tip) and came in without much ado. Tip: visit roofs of the cathedral. Fantastic view. Supermarket in the village and other larger few km further. It was a small and quiet place. We have recovered great.

  • A beautiful house spacious and practical. Very beautiful view of the lake. Ideally located in this pretty village of Castelveccana. A great stay! (attention: access by car requires some learning)

    Patrick2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is really nice. It's good with small children as there is a small play room and some toys and the living room is spacious. The long balcony is really nice and there's nice view in the evenings. The kitchen is really small, not much room to cook. There's lot of plates and kettles but not all the equipments you would need when cooking. The bedrooms are nice although the beds are hard. Location is ok. There's a little walk (10-15 min) down to the beach and Calde where there's few nice restaurants and the train station. The bus stop and small grocery store are closer. It's really handy to go around with bus and train if you don't have a car. The area, especially the lake, is really beautiful. The host is nice and he replied quickly. All in all we were really satisfied.

    Katri2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Olga is a very spacious and beautiful house. It is a great location with wonderful views of the lake and mountains. The town is really nice, there is a lovely Plaza with cafes and restaurants and a small beach where you can swim. I would definitely come back.

The kitchen is well equipped and it was fun to cook there or have an espresso on the sunny terrace, which is also cute and felt very private. Overall great value and good communication with Giovanni, would definitely recommend staying there!

By car, two large shopping centers quickly reach, stand within walking distance, not a tourist, but pure nature. Upper area accessible via external staircase, thus well thought for 2 families.

We'll be back for sure.

    Jessica2018-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Valentin's accommodation in Castello is really great, even with kids (we had our two with us). On foot you get to the water (Caldè) and without dangerous traffic situations in between. We were there at Pentecost and I felt that as a low season. It is almost everything open, but very relaxed with little tourist traffic. Really "laid-back", has made totally mood and the time has passed quickly. The neighbors of the apartment of Valentin are very nice and warm, we were well taken. All around recommended!

    Andreas2018-06-01T00:00:00Z

  • We were seven in the spacious house and spent a great week there. From Castelveccana you can quickly reach beautiful beaches in the area. Carrefour in the neighborhood was also handy for getting fresh bread in the morning. The kitchen is very well equipped. The only thing missing are wine glasses :-) The contact with Onorina was impeccable!

  • Giovanni is a very kind host, replying very quick to any questions and very punctual for check-in/check-out. Charming and spacy house, and we were particularly charmed by the garden and terrace, which have a wonderfull view over the Lago Maggiore!

    Joachim2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Check in and out was easy and Giovanni always answered very fast. We could even go back to the house earlier because we were super fast on the lake. The house is nice and big, so that we had very good space with 10 people. Also the garden with the view of the Lago is wonderful. With herbs that you can harvest. Mostly we ate in the garden. The beach for swimming and many places worth seeing are close and easy to reach. Giovanni gave us good tips and a list of the market days, restaurants and hikes right after arrival. Shops are within a 20 minute walk. With our VW bus we did not come directly to the house to load and unload but Giovanni helped us on arrival. We are happy to come back to Calde.

    Heike2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, cosy and spacious house and a very friendly host make it the perfect stay right on the shores of Lago Maggiore.

    Philipp2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • We lived at ninth (3 generations) in Giovanni's house and had wonderful days there. The house is very spacious, simply furnished, but everything is there, what you need during the holidays. The lake is almost adjacent to the garden, the beach offers shade and is ideal for children. We hardly went out to eat as the seating in Giovanni's garden was so snug that we enjoyed the sunset almost every night there. There is a small road between the house and the garden, where cars and motorcycles sometimes pass by relatively quickly, which can be quite dangerous for small children. Caldè is in public very well accessible by train. It is worthwhile, however, to have a car on site, as the shopping in the village are limited. The only shop can be reached on foot in 20 minutes. Giovanni is extremely nice, gave us tips, check in and check out went smoothly. Thank you Giovanni and Katja, we'll be back!

    Iris2019-07-25T00:00:00Z

The house is super equipped, it stays pleasantly cool on the ground floor and very clean, everything works. The location and especially the garden are a dream. Every evening we sat outside and enjoyed the view or the proximity to the lake. Many thanks Giovanni, we'll be back!

    Julia2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Giovanni is a very nice host. The handover went very smoothly. The house is very spacious, so we easily had room for seven people. The kitchen is very well equipped. The garden with its shady roof is a dream. There it was wonderful to relax and look at the Lago. The house is very well located and free parking is available nearby. We had a very nice stay and can absolutely recommend it. Thanks again to Giovanni. He was always available and was with good tips to the side.

    it's only 350 m away from the lake, and to the famous bakery house "Pasticceria dei Portici", the Unes supermarket is 500 m away.
    When visiting Italy, most travelers make a beeline for famous cities like Rome, Venice, Florence, and Milan—but some of the country’s dreamiest holiday destinations are tiny, little-known towns and villages off the beaten tourist track. Porto Valtravaglia even though its small town, it's well connected and has all essential services (Bars, Restaurants, Supermarket, Farmacy, and more). Enjoy the essence of living in a small and quiet lake town.
  • The apartment has a great view in the Lago Maggiore. The Terrasse is amazing. You can spend some nice days and/or evenings there. The flat ids equipped with most things one might need. Especially the washing Maschine came in handy. The lake is in walking distance. Our tip: the bar at the lake. You can reach it when going to the lake from the apartment and then turning left. Walk along the lake until you reach the Shipyard Punta Molino. It is right next to that.

    Christian2019-09-06T00:00:00Z

On the wonderful veranda you sit very nice, with lake view. The price performance ratio is very good. Thanks to Eva & Victor!

  • Large apartment preserved in its state as it was occupied by the grandmother of Victor (Baignoire hoof, large hunting, bed of time as well as the floor, paintings, etc.). Both in terms of cleanliness and space, the apartment is immediately habitable for at least four people. The view is breathtaking on Lake Maggiore from the terrace. Indeed, we are on the second floor. The only difficulty is to park next to the apartment. Due to the narrowness of the street, it is forbidden to park there. We can park only 100 meters from the apartment, in a small parking for residents. In all, a very good experience. Thank you Victor and Eva.

Nei secoli successive il paese si sviluppa secondo le sue due vocazioni: la pesca e le fornaci per la calce di cui rimangono ancor oggi le suggestive rovine.

Auf der Terrasse mit ihrer schönen Aussicht auf die Berge und ein Stückchen See werden bei guter Witterung die Mahlzeiten eingenommen. In Badezimmer (mit Waschmaschine) und Dusche tauchen wir in eine mediterrane Atmosphäre. Die fröhlich gelbe Küche ist mit einer Geschirrspülmaschine ausgestattet sowie zwei Sorten Kaffeeapparaturen: Eine Nespresso-Maschine und eine 'unplugged' Filterkaffeemaschine. Im Wohnzimmer hängt ein Satelliten-Decoder sowie DVD Player mit Beamer für möglichst grossen Fernseh- und Filmgenuss; ein WLAN-Netz sorgt für Verbundenheit mit der Welt (Anweisungen für TV und Internet liegen vor). Die neu eingebaute Zentralheizung macht die Wohnung Frühling bis Herbst gemütlich warm. Ein Babybett 60x120 steht für ganz kleine Gäste bereit. The apartment on the 2nd floor (124 m2) is bright and colourful. If the weather is fine, we take meals on the terrace, with a nice view on the mountains and a tiny bit of lake. One of the two bathrooms is equipped with a washing machine, the kitchen with a dishwasher. The living room has a satellite decoder, DVD player and beamer. WIFI is available throughout the house (bilingual instructions are at your disposal). Central heating makes the apartment warm and cozy from early Spring to late Autumn.
    Auf beiden Seiten sind Gärten der benachbarten Villen. Auf der Rückseite geht der Blick über den Bach Froda auf den bewaldeten Hügeln, dem Cuvignone und dem Monte Nudo (beide beliebte Wanderziele). Der Strasse abwärts geht es zu Fuss etwa 10 Minuten bis zum Hafen von Caldé. Dort kann man im See baden, Boot fahren, Fisch, Pasta oder Glace essen. Zum Einkaufen bietet sich ein grosser Supermarkt im Nachbardorf Porto Valtravaglia an, dort gibt es auch wöchentlich einen Strassenmarkt. Luino mit seinem berühmten Mittwochsmarkt ist in etwa 15 Minuten mit Auto oder Zug erreichbar. Empfehlenswerte Ausflugsziele in der Umgebung sind S. Caterina del Sasso, eine zum Teil im Fels gehauene Einsiedlerei bei Laveno, und Arcumeggia, ein Künstlerdorf mit Fresken aus den 1950er Jahren. Down the road in 10' walking distance there is the village centre of Caldé, where you can eat ice-cream or go bathing. Shopping is possible in the next village, Porto Valtravaglia. Each Wednesday there is a famous street market in Luino, a few miles away.
  • A very charming, stylish accommodation, whose loving and personal equipment fits the charisma of the entire house. Not for nothing were here for the second time after 2016. Our children were very happy about the existing children's books.

    Tobias Enno2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Tastefully decorated, a garden to stay in, a great balcony with a wonderful lake view, coffee maker, even a bookcase that can be used - all there to make you feel good. The kitchen is well equipped, a washing machine is also available if needed. We enjoyed a lot of peace and nature in the fall, whether on and on the lake or in the wooded hinterland, which invites to beautiful walks and hikes. You would love to come back next time ...

    Roland2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location. Claudio was very friendly. The communication ran smoothly. Thanks!

    Christoph2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Claudio and Adrea were excellent hosts and provided helpful tips on the area. Unfortunately, we did not meet them in person, but the communication went smoothly via mail. The accommodation is idyllically situated amidst green forests and mountains. On the terrace overlooking the lake there is sun all day, which is not a problem at all due to the two available umbrellas. The terrace and the garden were spacious and very idyllic! The apartment and the kitchen are very well equipped with everything you need for a holiday. We felt very comfortable in the charming rooms and it was also nice and quiet. The bathroom was very clean. The environment is very idyllic and you are in a few minutes by car in Luino and Porto Valtravaglia. We visited the place in the low season (September), which is why the town unfortunately were dead. The advantage: hardly any tourists! The accommodation was perfect for our needs and we will be back!

    Maren2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • A very stylish and perfectly located vacation home at the Lago Maggiore. Claudio is quick to respond, everything went perfect. I definitely recommend this place!

    Tom2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had to 5 a wonderful time in the villa - the view from the balcony on the lake is fantastic, the apartment also for rainy days very spacious and you like to rummage in the versatile bookshelf. The communication with Claudio was great, fast and uncomplicated. We would like to come again!

    Tina2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Claudio and Andrea are wonderful hosts, their accommodation is well equipped, especially suitable for families with children. In addition, the house / apartment is very stylish and decorated with attention to detail! We are happy to come back !!!

    Patric2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable in the beautiful and colorful apartment. The view and the garden are a dream. Our children (3 and 5 years) were also very impressed by the toys and books. The communication was straightforward and the tips very helpful. We can only recommend the apartment and will come back ;-)!

    Casa Luna is a studio apartment located in the historic center of Nasca, a hamlet of Castelveccana, on Lake Maggiore. The house is located 2.5km by car from the lake (1.5km by feet) more precisely from the hamlet of Caldè, known as "the Portofino of Lake Maggiore" On Instagram & Facebook: @casalunanasca
    Casa Luna has a wonderful terrace with a view on the valley and mountains, showing also a bit of the lake on one side. Close to the lake and the mountains, the area offers a lot of activities such as hiking, sailing, mtb. Nasca is 10km far from Luino, famous for its wednesday's market, and 8km from Laveno Mombello, where it's possible to take the ferry to visit the other side of the lake and the Borromee Islands.
    Casa Luna is in the historical centre of Nasca, a very small town on a hill, with old houses and narrow streets. The house is facing the sun all day, so it's beautiful to appreciate the summer weather and the blooming green on the mountains in front of the terrace, with the sounds of the crickets as a background.
  • It is a very nice place to be. Highly recommended.

    Ludwig2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very lovely appartment, in a quiet area with an amazing view on the mountains from the terrace. Laura is a perfect host; we had everything we could need (breakfast with coffee, juices, biscuits). The bed is confortable, the place is 100% clean. Laura has good taste in decoration also ! There are hiking spots not far, with view on lake maggiore and lake lugano. We would definitely recommand.

    Xavier2019-09-25T00:00:00Z

    Alina2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice apartment with thoughtful details. Everything was very practical and yet beautifully decorated. Laura was super nice and always answered quickly. She has provided a suitable bed and paddling pool for our baby! Our tips for a nice stay: mosquito repellent !!! own car (it is a bit out of the way but we wanted), before food shopping (little shops nearby), no German standard for breakfast (as usual, it's more of a few cookies and coffee), two to drive to the car park (one should help with parking, because really very tight). We recommend this apartment, as we had a nice stay.

    Melissa2019-08-28T00:00:00Z

  • Super well equipped and spacious apartment! Thank you again for the recommendations of some excursion destinations☺️ we had a really good time!

    Doris2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very clean and conforms to the photos. The view of the lake is great. There is a side yard patio which is very nice. Marco and his wife warmly welcomed us and showed us the apartment. Too bad we were woken Sunday morning at 7:30 by the neighbor who was doing work on the upper floor ...

    Francine2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is all about the view. Sitting on the balcony, overlooking the stunning Lake and watching the boats go by with wine in hand is a must!!! The apartment is clean, functional and comfortable. We found it great!! The WiFi is through the public WiFi so if vital maybe ensure you have enough data, but it’s nice to disconnect too!!! Thank you so much Marco and Claudia, it was lovely to meet you both.

    Susan2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is spacious and offers busy sea promenade front and to the back a great green garden terasse. The hosts are responsive ,flexible and generous with welcome wine.

    Hanne2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfectly clean and good location. The best thing was an amazing back yard! Easy to do trips all over the lake Maggiore. 5/5.

    Miro2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice time in the apartment of Claudia and Marco. The communication was perfect. It was nice to meet Claudia at check-in, she is super friendly and ready to help. In the apartment we and our three grown-up children had enough space to feel completely comfortable. The apartment is impeccable and offers everything you need to have a good time with five - certainly six. Sympathetic is the outdoor area with Grillmöglichlichkeit. The location of the apartment is perfect for all activities on Lake Maggiore. Ghiffa itself is a beautiful place, especially the Sacro Monte impressed us. It is most beautiful at sunrise, when no one else is there ... We will definitely come back! Barbara

    Barbara2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • In front of the house are many public free parking lots. The journey is very convenient and easy. Especially pleasant is the large apartment and large kitchen and living room. The terrace is quiet and very pretty. The photos of the apartment absolutely correspond to the real conditions.

    The house is located in a small but very quiet village a step away from the main street and the lake. Please respect the tranquillity of the area and close the door of your flat and the iron gate with key when you are out of home or during the night.
    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!).
  • Together with two friends, I spent four days in the small sweet apartment in Ghiffa. The equipment is perfect for a nice getaway. In good weather, after a short two-minute walk, you can enjoy the fantastic view over Lake Maggiore or simply lounge around the beautiful pool. But even in bad weather, it can be well beaten in the apartment! We really enjoyed our time there and thank Mic for your hospitality! PS you should take something against mosquitoes ;-)

    Henriette2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an awesome trip (four girls) in Ghiffa. Flat looks like on the picture and Michaela is so nice! We can really recommend to stay in her flat (pool and garden are amazing by the way).

    Carolin2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had 10 great days at Mic & Max in Ghiffa. The cottage is idyllically hidden behind a house facade with winding streets and a great view of the lake. The decor is tasteful, but you have to like sleeping on a plateau. Unfortunately, the air in the apartment itself was pretty stuffy and the ventilation due to the many mosquitoes almost impossible, so the air conditioning actually had to run permanently. It was a pity that you in the beautiful garden with great pool (especially for our kids) and panoramic views no seating for breakfast or dinner and you have to be aware of this great garden with the hosts even if they share On the ground are (even if they are very warm!) In this case, a bit of privacy. Ghiffa is a manageable, but very pretty place and the many great restaurant tips from Mic can be reached mostly on foot. A very nice spot !!

    Nora2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation. Absolutely recommended.

    Caroline2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice, small apartment. Very stylishly furnished. I would recommend a maximum of 3 people. The garden and the small pool can be shared in consultation with the hostess. The garden is really gorgeous! Unfortunately, the interior bathroom has no windows, and the small exhaust air does not manage to bring out the moisture. It is not 100m to the lake on foot.

    Jens2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place and close to the beach

    Philippe2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is very nice and everything is there, what you need. Also the garden and the pool were great. For families the perfect accommodation! Mic and her family live right up there and are all very nice. In Ghiffa itself, there is not much, but a small beach, a few bars, restaurants and a delicious ice cream parlor.

    Villa Alba is a beautiful, modern and contemporary three bedroom detached villa situated on the Eastern shores of Lake Maggiore in the Italian Lakes. The property is set in a stunning location and enjoys terrific 180 degree views up and down the lake. A private set of step lead from the garden to the beach and lakeside, where guests can enjoy a swim in the lake waters. This truly is an idyllic setting for a holiday in this part of Italy.
    The villa is south westerly facing with 140 m2 of living space, with a large balcony leading from 2 of the 3 bedrooms and a stone terrace and lawned garden area. The original owner spent a couple of years renovating the property to an extremely high standard and has created a luxurious property with a homely, welcoming feel. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed whilst the second bedroom is furnished with a double bed. Doors from both bedrooms lead out on to a balcony with stunning lake views and overlooking the garden below. The third bedroom has twin beds which can be converted to a double if required. On the ground floor, there is also an open plan living, dining and kitchen area which leads out onto the garden and terrace. The modern designer kitchen is extremely well equipped. A fire in the corner of the living room makes this the perfect place to stay all year round...what better place to relax after a hard day on the ski slopes which can be reached within an hours drive! The TV in this room has wireless functionality making it possible for guests to watch channels such as Netflix and YouTube. An outdoor table and chairs is set up on the terrace in the garden for al fresco dining along with a couple of sun loungers. There is also a BBQ for al fresco dining. The garden is fully fenced and gated and suitable for those with animals (or for young children). A lockable gate leads down from the garden where guests can enjoy a beach area and direct access to the lake water. There is a buoy in the water should guests have a boat. This is available to use on request for an additional £150 per week. Please ask for more details.
    The house is well placed for visiting the lakeside towns and villages on Lake Maggiore but if you wanted to explore a bit further afield, Lake Como is only a 1 hour drive and trains run direct from Luino to Milan in an hour. Lake Lugano is also easily accessible from the property as are other cities such as Verona and Venice. Villa Alba is situated in the village of Portovaltravaglia which boasts a small market every Monday between 8 and 1, a modern supermarket, an ice cream shop, cafe and newsagents. The village centre also boasts a couple of popular, well rated restaurants serving both modern and traditional Italian cuisine. Guests can usually walk to the village along the beach (although please note that the water level does prevent this at certain times during the Winter). There is another bustling Italian restaurant within a few metres walk of Villa Alba in the other direction. CIR code: 012114-CNI-00030

    Porto Valtravaglia, Lombardia, Italy

    [CIR 012045-CNI-00004] A romantic house with a gorgeous lake view ideal for your relaxing holiday. This is my family home since generations and it's full of history and memories. Placed in one of the most characteristic town of the area on 600 m a.s.l., it's halfway between mountains and lake, an ideal position to easily reach the coast or to hike in the woods. The spacious and equipped garden is perfect for letting the children play or for a bbq.
    The house has 3 levels: the last floor is an open space with a double bed and a sofa bed. On this floor, there's a bathroom with a shower and a kitchen with a superb lake view. The first floor has 2 bedrooms with double beds, two single beds you can move where you want and another bathroom with a bath tub and the washing machine. On the ground floor (directly connected to the garden), there's a recently renovated living room with a sofa bed for two, another kitchen and a toilet with a sink (no shower).
    Sarigo is a little and romantic village with few hundred inhabitants and it has kept its ancient, relaxed and stress-free atmosphere far from city life. It's a place full of history and tales where you can experience the slow countryside life.
  • Charming, clean and big old style house with tidy garden. All necessary garden furniture and barbeque facilities are provided. Breathtaking view from upper floors surrounded by balconies from where you can watch sunsets. Parking location is only 2 min walk, but also car can be parked up close to the building. The communication with host was always quick and this was especially helpful on the day of arrival. For families with kinds I would recommend the shallow pebble beach situated near Circolo Nautico Calde. You can leave your car in Parcheggio parking and walk down the footpath to the lake.

    Olga2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Large house well equipped and perfectly clean. A very good welcome on our arrival. I highly recommend.

    Jazz2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • The communication with Kiara was very friendly and always very fast. The check-in was easy. The house is very nice and very quiet. Everything was very clean and tidy. The ideal place to spend a few quiet and relaxing days. By car you are in a few minutes by the lake and also the recommendations of the restaurants in Kiaras Wellcomebook are good. Only the direct approach to the house with a larger car could be a bit problematic, as the streets in the village are very narrow. We would take the accommodation again at any time and many thanks to Kiara.

    Volker2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Relaxing in an old charming mountain village with narrow streets / lanes, a bit off the usual tourism. By car you can quickly reach the surrounding areas and so can enjoy the wonderful peace. Especially the small harbor in Calde, just below Sargio, with the traditional swimming is recommended and also culinary is here in good hands. The house has its own charming charm and the view on the top floor of the Lago is really great, as you could stand for hours. Whether for breakfast or for the evening stay, you are in good hands on the terrace / garden. It was a wonderful stay with really great hosts.

    Andreas2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent house for a group in a cosy little village. Mind the narrow streets though! Not walking distance to the lake, but Luino, Varese and other cities in the area a easily accesed in a car. Great communication with host, and thorough info before arriving! Mind that linen is not part of the basics (maybe only we did not read the describtion og facilities correct). All in all I can only recommend this nice house and garden.

    Anders2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Just a great place, a great house with lots of details. Car required ...

    Mikko2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous views and a very quaint home in a lovely little village. Being near to so much that the area has to offer we found the location brilliant and loved being in a little village away from the tourists. The balconies and views were just superb. There are a few stairs, we found them no problem at all and it was a real advantage having an additional summer kitchen just off the garden.

    Joanna2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • It is a beautiful and spacious house with a spacious garden in a cozy old village. Chiara and Alexander are always ready to help. It is a beautiful environment very close to Switzerland. It is advisable to have a car.

Located in the vicinity of the bay of Caldé and just a stone's throw from Lake Maggiore, the villa is blessed with a strategical position perfect for appreciating the beauty of the land it belongs to. Casa Vallate has been recently renovated with modern necessities, while completely maintaining and respecting the original charm and character of the villa. In addition, a large communal kitchen, a drawing room and two taverns are available for the guests.
  • Very nice and clean accommodation with extremely friendly and helpful hosts! Very good location!

  • We had some great days in the lovely and ancient villa. The garden is just beautiful and huge. You may use all the fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits to prepare a meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Philippe is the perfect host. Check beforehand the correct street to enter the house, they are a bit narrow 😉.

  • This is one of my all-time favorite Airbnb locations! Philippe is extremely welcoming and friendly; we felt comfortable right away. The apartment is furnished tastefully with very high-quality furniture and accessories. We lacked nothing during our visit. The shared kitchen was perfect for preparing meals, and a large window offered spectacular views while cooking and dining. We got to meet interesting people and had good conversations. The lake views from the apartment were incredible, and we debated whether to spend all day at this perfect piece of paradise or discover the beautiful Lago Maggiore area. We opted to do a bit of both. We would happily stay there again and already miss it very much.

    Julia2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very tastefully and with attention to detail renovated and furnished. It is not far from the lake, which can be reached in 10-15 minutes walk. The room has a great view of mountains, lake and especially the beautiful large garden, which belongs to the house and invites you to walk, lounging and get-togethers. Not forgetting Philippe, who is an exceptionally friendly, attentive and open host. We look forward to the next time in the Casa Vallate.

    Thomas2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place to stay in stunning surroundings. Lots of thoughtful touches in the room, and Philippe was a great host. Thank you!

    Amanda2018-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Vallate is fantastic and Phillippe a very warm host with the best tips for excursions around the Lago Maggiore off the beaten track. In the wonderful property it's time to relax and enjoy. Those looking for peace and relaxation in a fabulous environment, is in good hands with Philippe!

    Ivo2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate! This is one of the best airbnb expierences you can get. The house is amazingly beautifull, and the garden is paradise. Philippe is the best host you can get; he will give lovely tips to explore the area, have a good conversation with you or just let you be. At first we where not sure we would be enjoying the amount of tourists around laggio maggiore as much. Luckily this house is at the quiet site of the lake! It felt very authentic and not touristy at all! The area is so beautifull, and with Phillipes tips there’s allot to explore. After 4 days we were nog ready to leave at all!

    Laura2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional stay. Philippe is very caring while being discreet. Intense on his region, he lavishes his advice of visit adapted to each one. We had planned to return to visit this beautiful region, we will now see Philippe.

  • We were welcomed by Micchele Antoinette's husband who is very nice. He came to meet us because we could not find the house. The streets are very narrow according to the route you take. The top floor apartment has a wonderful view of the lake, and it is very spacious. Guests can enjoy a well-kept garden with barbecue, deck chair, children's playground. It is a nice place 200m from a bar and a supermarket.

  • Fantastic place and a garden with a breathtaking view! We dined looking at the Laggo Maggiore and our daughter could run around and play on the toboggan. The hosts are very nice and helpful! The only thing to know is that there is no heat in the second bedroom and nights in April might be chilly.

    Our Palazzo in the historical centre of Ronco di Ghiffa offers a great place to stay with large families or friends. 7 bedrooms, beautiful historical fire place where you can eat with 13 people. Separate spacious kitchen. Roof terrace with fabulous lake view. Garden with bbq and 3 bathroom
    On the foot of one of Italies holy mountains lies our Pallazo, that offers you a real taste of Italian life. We restored the place into it's authentic glory, combined with the comforts of the 21st century.
    Cappuccino's, restaurants, the lake maggiore and a walk on the holy mountain are just around the corner. You can choose from the little beaches of Ghiffa (10 min. walk) or the larger beaches along the lake for swimming and fishing. Enjoy the beautiful nature and waterfalls when hiking in the Val Grande or visit the weekly market in Intra with authentic Italian products.
  • Perfect big house with fantastic roof terrace. Nice town with a nice atmosphere. We were seven friends. There was room for many more. Thank you Paul!

    Christian2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our week in the italian Palazzo with 8 People was great and indeed it is very charming! The kitchen had enough items for extensive cooking evenings. The view and the silent neighbourhood was also very nice! Would be nice to stay there again sometime!

    Laila2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The palazzo is beautifully and lovingly restored and offers a lot of space for guests. I recommended the place to a friend, I hope she will like it too.

    Monika2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • We were a travel group of 5 couples including one with two children. We loved Paul's house. It is beautiful and decorated with attention to detail, the dining room with the blackboard is the highlight! The garden with the arbor, whose roof forms a beautiful kiwi plant, is excellent for breakfast and warm evenings. The kitchen was great equipped, you found everything to get 12 large and small bellies full. Paul was great to reach by phone and gave us good tips on restaurants and swimming. In Ghiffa itself you will find a smaller beach, in the area for example in Oggebio or Cannebio are larger beaches, which can be reached in 10-20 minutes. Just 5 minutes walk from the house is a small shop where you can get fruits and vegetables, rolls and basics, larger supermarkets can be found in 5-10 minutes by car. It was a nice getaway, I can only recommend the villa!

    Gulnas2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for the third time as guests (8 adults, 3 children) in Paul's beautiful villa. As usual, everything ran smoothly this time. The villa is very well equipped and great for families. The communication with Paul is straightforward and the sunset over the lake from the rooftop terrace is simply beautiful! We had a great time again and will be back!

    Elisa2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • It is a beautiful, inspiring and inspiring house! .. very stylishly decorated ... we felt very comfortable and had more than enough space at nine ... a dream! It all worked out wonderfully and Paul is very accommodating! The environment and the nature is fantastic! We are very happy to go back ....

    Angelika2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great family holiday! We loved this big villa where the whole family was able to stay and where everyone had their own space. We had a bottle of Lambrusco as a welcome gift, great attention! Space outside for petanques and barbecues, huge tables to be around 12 ... in short, address to recommend!

    Lauriane2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house is great especially for groups of families. You also find equipment for smaller children there, like highchairs and baby beds. You also find a good kitchen equipment. You have a great view on the lake from the balconies and the roof top. The Palazzo was restored with a lot of effort and love. Paul is a nice and very honest host who answered quickly to our questions and arranged an earlier check in for us. We stayed in the house in the end of April and it was still a Bit cold. The common rooms (living room and kitchen) can be heated by a fire site but the sleeping and bath rooms have no fire site and got very cold during the night. But I can Imagine, that it is very comfortable in the hot summer, that the Palazzo gets not to hot. Thanks for the nice stay.

  • Luca and family are very hospitable and welcoming. Their big rustic house is great to relax, breakfast is excellent, and you have a great view to the lake.

    Leonardo2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet place surrounded by nature, fantastic for those who love the mountains and very close to Lake Maggiore. Luca and Anna's excellent hospitality! Very polite and quick to respond to help find the place that has rather precise indications. I felt comfortable with them for an overnight stay in the area.

    Stefano2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • If you are lovers like me, from here you will enjoy a wonderful view and an uncontaminated environment, despite the proximity of inhabited centers

    Alessio2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Luca's cozy cottage was a very nice experience. There are many many cats (around 20) and we could cuddle with most of them. They are mostly supposed to stay out of the house and no animals are in the guest's rooms. You share a bathroom with the other guests which was no problem for us. The rooms are rather small but very comfortable and lovely furnished. Luca was a great host, very attentive and it was nice to talk to him. He made us a great breakfast with good, italian espresso! Please note: Don't follow the adress (Via Sant'Antonio) that Airbnb gives you and especially don't follow it on google maps, you will be guided into a very narrow village where you will most propably damage your car! Luca gives you a description of how to drive from Castelveccana to Sant Antonio beforehand! The drive is about 10 minutes ridable serpentines up the hill.

    Charlotte2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • A very beautifull place!! The cats are so cute! The room was very clean and the bed was good! Breakfast was nice.

    Kitty2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • The location is a little off, but definitely worth the way :) We had a great stay - really enjoyed all the cats and the lovely dog along with a superb breaki and lakeview in the morning.

    Tobi2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay if you're traveling by car. Extremely cool curvy mountain road to the place with outstanding views. Lovely dogs, lots of cats, a donkey, and a goat are included. Luca is extremely hospital and can tell about his awesome historic place.

    Oleksii2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • very simple, but a dream for animal and nature lovers. The welcome is warm, the animals are relaxed and the originality of the building brings its history closer. I definitely did not miss anything.

Molto suggestiva la chiesetta medievale di Santa Veronica da cui si puo' ammirare dall'alto tutta Calde' ed e' raggiungibile solo a piedi.

  • We had a wonderful week in the apartment. Everything was there, what you need, the apartment is very spacious and it was very clean. We will be back

    Katharina2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • In one word: this is a place to return to. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and from the balconies you have a wonderful view. Everything is as the photos on the Airbnb site promise. The lake and public beach are at walking distance and the environment is rather quiet. Though trains pass nearby, they don’t give much nuisance. We didn’t actually meet Ivan or Cinzia, but the access instructions were clear and they were easily to contact through Airbnb messages. We enjoyed!

    Peter2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • It is a spacious apartment with two bedrooms, living room and open kitchen and bathroom plus a separate toilet. Two large and one small balconies and all amenities are available. It is clearly carefully and lovingly decorated. Good communication and instructions with regard to closing the outside gate. The house is on the track. A freight train and passenger train run a few times a day. Of course you can hear that, but we found that no problem. Within walking distance (6 min) to beach on the lake and there are a number of restaurants with beautiful views of the lake. Worth repeating!

    Desiree2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very clean and well equipped. Although the rail line is very close, the noise of the trains did not worry us at all. It is a great place to have a holiday away from the busy areas.

    Donna2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Super apartment Spacious clean and very complete Very nice view from the 2 terraces Lake and amenities nearby Apartment to recommend

    Clem2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very large and perfectly decorated. Everything you could wish for is available. There are two terraces, so you can always choose between sun and shade. The occasional trains passing behind the house did not bother us much. The welcome and the contact with the landlords was very friendly, helpful and fast. The lake is only two minutes, the beach five minutes on foot. The village is beautiful and very quiet. You can swim, paddle and hike. We spent a wonderful week here and will definitely come back.

    Maria2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We (at times 5 people) have felt very comfortable in this large and practical apartment in a beautiful old house. The trains, which occasionally drive past the house, hardly disturbed us. We like to come back.

    Gabriel2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was even better, as we expected from the pictures. The weather also went down well and it never rained, we always had sun and warm temperatures. In other reviews, we had previously read that the railway line passing by the house, especially at night sometimes robs sleep. We did not let ourselves be impressed and were able to sleep as normal. Rather, the barking dogs from the neighborhood at night had to get used to. It was our first experience booking through AirBnB and we can very well imagine repeating that soon. Thank you for an unforgettable holiday in this beautiful apartment!

  • Luca and his family are great hosts, easy to communicate and very friendly. The place was used as a resort in older times, therefore very authentic with a cozy fireplace where we’ve had deep conversations.

    Onur2019-12-08T00:00:00Z

  • Historic Gastaus (built in 1904) with great residents: Luca and family, many cats and friendly dogs. The handling is very informal and helpful. The room is very basic, the bed was okay and the bathroom was big enough. Nice for all animal lovers who are looking for the simple. Very good price / performance ratio.

    Laura2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
