Der Aufenthalt in der Villa Contini in dem italienischen, nichttouristischen Dorf Besozzo, wenige Kilometer vom See entfernt, war wundervoll und sehr besonders, mit einem sehr eigenen Charme. Ein Teil der alten Villa Contini ist bewohnt, ein Teil ist für die Gäste von Filippo. Außergewöhnlich ist auch der angrenzende alte, riesige dazugehörige Park, in dem man wunderbar spazieren, entspannen und sich sonnen kann. Wenn man auf der Suche nach einem authentischen italienischen Ort ist, und in einem echten Altbau wohnen möchte, ist man hier genau richtig. Filippo war selber nicht vor Ort, aber ein sehr netter Pförtner war beim Check in behilflich. Es gab anfänglich ein kleines Missverständnis, welches sich aber schnell klärte. Die Bewohner der Villa und des Ortes sind sehr freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit. Geschäfte, Restaurants und Cafés sind fussläufig zu erreichen. Es war einzigartig, in die Atmosphäre des schönen Gebäudes einzutauchen, gepaart mit den angenehmen Geräuschen aus der Umgebung. Danke Filippo für diese Erfahrung und alles Gute bei der weiteren Restauration.
Thank you Anke, you are more than welcome to come back in Villa Contini and I hope to meet you next time!

Villa Contini could easily make it to the front of airbnb - you know the pictures of amazing homes displayed on the webpage. It really is a beautiful old residence, renovated to perfection, in a charming little town. It is ideally located if you want authenticity yet only being 15 minutes from Maggiore and 1h from Lugano and Como.
Filippo was out of the country but replied in minutes and arranged for a neighbor/relative to greet us upon arrival. Filippo's brother also showed up and brought us a sample of the local cake.
Overall a great experience and we are definitely coming back.
Posizione ottima direttamente in centro con meravigliosa vista sulle montagne e i boschi. Appartamento in ordine con encomio per la pulizia; avendo noi cucinato abbiamo molto gradito la presenza di lavastoviglie. L'unica nota riguarda la presenza nella zona giorno (oltre ai 4 posti letto nelle 2 camere) di ulteriori due letti singoli oltre ad un divano letto Ikea (tipo grankulla) che riducono lo spazio vitale pranzo vedi anche le ridotte dimensioni del tavolo ottimo per 2 persone, ma già per quattro..
The House was incredibly beautiful, and the other people staying there were very friendly and helpful.
Besozzo as town was great. A couple of restaurants and gelati shops within a short walk made our stay very pleasant.
Next time we are in the region, we will definitely look to stay again.
Saying this place is beautiful - i say nothing. Place a kind of extinct - rare in its truly, unfeigned antiquity.
Everything, from the classical music which someone normally played in a morning nearby, to the old garden (a must walk) is excellent.
People, food (there is a small and really nice restaurant on the via verde, with a wonderful Kristina in charge) view, smell - i love everything in this place.
Thank you Mikael! you perfectly catch the soul of the place! Come to visit us whenever you want!
We had a great holiday in Santa Caterina. The apartment is right in the middle of town and less than a five minute walk from the chair lift. The apartment has everything you need and has great views out over the mountains from the balcony.
Appartamento in posizione splendida, accessibilità tramite ascensore, comodo per famiglie con bambini, vicinissimo al centro, Filippo persona gentile e disponibile. Pulizia ok.
Santa Caterina Valfurva è un paese stupendo vi regalerà relax sport e ottimo cibo. CONSIGLIATO!!!
I had a wonderful stay at Filippo's. Filippo and his partner are very warm and hospitable. We had very interesting conversations and it was a pleasure to talk with them. The apartment has been tastefully renovated and the view on Barcelona is definitely breathtaking.
I could not have found a better option ! Should I return to Barcelona, I would certainly go to the same place.
The apartment is perfectly located, has a 360 ° view over Barcelona until the sea view from the shower.
You will feel like at home.
That was a real pleasure to discuss with hosts. They are very interesting people and very hospitable.
Fillippo foi um hóspede educado que cumpriu com todas as regras da casa. Será bem-vindo outras vezes.
com certeza que recomendarei o Filippo Poli a outros anfitrioes, pois ter ele aqui em ninha casa foi muito tranquilo e ele sabe bem respeitar as regras da casa, obrigado Filippo por sua estadia aqui na Baluarte, espero que para voce tenha sido prazeroso esta aqui.
um abraco .
A lovely guest to have around. Very chilled and easy going.
Lovely guests, very good communicators and considerate. Looked after our place and we would welcome them back any time.
Filippo is very educated and well-natured guest. Would recommend him to anyone here.
Filippo it's one member of my family in Barcelona. I know him and Silvia very well. They are very interesting persons and very cariing also. We are italian but with are in Barcelona for a long time. Filippo is sharing with me The Triathlon experience, he is a good partner!!!Their flat it's simply...amazing! I love spend time with them watching Barcelona from their living room!!!! Enjoy them and the flat!!!
I've beeen several times at Filippo's home and every time I felt as if I'd always been there. It is so confortable and easy for breathing Barcelona spirit. From all the windows and the balcony you have an astonishing wiew of the city. You are near the seaside and near to the center and have all the public transports at hand. Both Filippo and Sivia will do their best in giving you all the informations you need.
The flat is exactly as on pictures - clean with a lot of light. We stayed in Filippo´s flat for one week and we felt really comfortable, the view on Barcelona is something special, it is nice to have breakfast looking to the city and if you are lucky Silvia will prepare a tasty cake..The room has a nice bed, Japanese style, it is very cosy. The location is perfect and we really enjoyed Ciudadela Park during sunny days. Perfect location, we can't ask more, we will be back!
