This bright spacious lovely immaculate apartment is has a vast beautiful view of the lake. The long balcony, with its comfortable chairs and tables and view, was a great place to relax, with a glass of wine after a day out. The two bedrooms have comfortable beds and the neighborhood was very quiet...good sleeping. The bathroom and kitchen have all modern appliances, an excellent hairdryer, but were lacking dish detergent, and towel bars in the bathroom. The apartment’s decor is attractive and inviting. A three minute walk from the apartment brings you to the lake shore with its long lovely promenade, benches for sitting, shade trees, cafes, restaurants, and the ferry. Frequent ferries take you to beautiful Isola Bella and Isola Madre with their astonishing villas and breathtaking gardens as well as a Isola Pescatori. We also liked Stresa and Intra...busy centers but by walking up hill you find, again, amazing villas, hikes, etc.
In Pallanza there a long wonderful car free walk along the shore past stunning villas and lake views which takes you to the Villa Taranto with its superb gardens. We toured the entire garden then took the ferry back to Pallanza. Be aware, the charming looking cafe at the Villa does not have great Italian food! Stick to sandwiches or pizza. We would certainly return to this apartment again but wish that it came with linens...that they were not an extra. We would have liked to find the beds in a “holiday rental” already made when we arrived.
