HOME HIGHLIGHTS
BreakfastThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.
Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

No hotel in the world, no other house will allow you to dine, sleep and chill out between ancient pieces as in a Museum but warmy to stay. Some of the antiques date from 1500s. This wonderful historical house overlooks Lake Maggiore, one of the most beautiful and well known Italian lakes,.
The living room is spacious and has an old fireplace that still works. All windows overlook the garden and/or the lake.
Perfect location to visit Lago Maggiore, or play Golf in Alpino, Borromées, Bogogno.

Stef is an amazing host and this was an amazing stay. The house looks like a museum, we were sleeping in the bed that was made in 1691. Everything around was antique but at the same time very inviting, convenient and homey. Very private, quiet and close to mother-nature place - e…

Very nice host who likes to discuss with quests and tell about local places.

Le prese (TICINO) sono a norma. Come ho spiegato, l'impianto è fatto alla vecchia maniera: 1 circuito luce e 1 circuito forza. Se attacchi un elettrodomestico sulla luce salta la valvola. Basta riattaccarla, o meglio non farlo. Tutto qui.

The first thing to say about this place is that the host Stef is fantastic. Very attentive, helpful and informative. He had left us a beautiful array of things for breakfast and this was very gratefully received. The house was very clean and communication with Stef was easy. A…

Questa recensione stride veramente con le altre che ho ricevuto, tutte a 5 stelle. Poiché danneggia gravemente la mia immagine di host preciserò punto per punto: 1. Letti nessuna lamentela finché sono rimasti. Solo dopo la loro sparizione, avvenuta senza avvertire nessuno e probabilmente motivata dal tempo pessimo, ricevo un messaggio, che mi informa che sono andati via e che i letti non andavano bene: letto matrimoniale, erano state messe lastre di irrigidimento chieste dal cliente precedente che è arrivato sofferente di mal di schiena: se ci avesse informato le avremmo tolte subito; letti singoli, misura standard cm. 80x180, non ospito giganti; letto rotto, entrambi sono stati sostituiti con nuove reti steccate: e chi mi dice che non l'abbiano rotto loro, visto che nessuno si era mai lamentato prima?? e come si permette questo maleducato di dire ad altri di controllare se è vero che le ho cambiate??? ho le fatture. chiederò comunque a Airbnb di mandare un loro incaricato per controllare!!! 2. " entire house" e privacy parliamo di oltre mq. 150 di piano terra (plain pied) +mq..300 di upper garden + mq. 3.000 di garden tutto in esclusiva, con 2 entrate dal giardino dove si può parcheggiare. Entrata principale in esclusiva, entrata secondaria in comune. Passo solo dall'ingresso secondario 5/6 volte al giorno fra le 8.00 e le 20.00 (come la servitù in un buon albergo) , o per assistere gli ospiti o in loro assenza. E l'esistenza del mio studio al 1° piano era stata dichiarata prima della prenotazione. Peraltro devo fare io una lamentela, perché non ho mai visto nessuno depositare nell'ingresso principale, arredato con cassapanca del 500, quadro del '700, pannello cinese laccato anni '30, ecc., una fila di zaini, scarponi da montagna e perfino una bicicletta, che ha lasciato un bel graffio sulla lacca: solo questo restauro mi costerà quasi quanto ricevuto l'intero soggiorno... Forse un ostello per la gioventù sarebbe più adatto che case di questo tipo... Comunque vedo dal profilo che altri host hanno avuto problemi con costui!

Stef's house is full of history and interesting furniture and curiosities. If you like modern it may not be for you. He is a very caring and considerate host, he provided fresh fruit and food over and above what we expected. It is a 20 minute walk down small steep lanes to the to…
