We, 4 persons, have just spent 4 wonderful days in this great and absolutely clean holiday home in Verbania. We felt absolutely safe there despite the still current Corona situation. Also, all the people we met in Verbania in the shop or in public places wore masks (in contrast to Locarno, where we made a short stop on the way back). So Italy is doing a lot to protect itself and its guests in the best possible way. The first 2 days of our stay were stormy, grey and rainy, with thunder and lightnings, but as the house is comfortably and modernly furnished, we were able to survive this time there. In the cosy, brightly furnished living room there are e.g. games, internet and TV available. In the fridge cool drinks as well as biscuits and nibbles were waiting for us, which are included in the price. What luxury! The house is comfortably furnished, beautifully situated on the Palanza mountain, with a view of the surrounding mountains, which were also covered with snow on the second day. The landlords are really super nice, answer quickly and do their best to make sure that the guests have a great time. The neighbourhood was totally quiet, so we all slept well. There are many beautiful things in the immediate vicinity, such as Villa Toranto with a wonderful garden and of course Verbania and its lakefront, Intra and the harbour to go to other destinations. For example we made a trip with the ship from Intra over to Laveno Mombello. There we floated up to 1.062 meters with a tiny gondola for 2 persons, which looks like a bigger milk bucket. From there you could see the whole Lago Maggiore and much more. It was wonderful and absolutely recommendable. On foot we walked down to the gondola station for at least 2.5 hours (pure walking time), stopping halfway in a rustic restaurant. The path is challenging, because it is very rough with scree, and sore muscles in the calves are guaranteed! But we will definitely come back. 2021 at the latest !!!
