Maccagno is an extra beautiful village (the beach is awesome) and the house as well. Stunning view, well furnished, uncomplicated and friendly landlord. Had a good time!
We had a lovely stay at your house! It had the most amazing view I've ever seen!! Thank you for a lovely holiday! We spent one week in Francescos house with 4 adults and 2 baby's, the house was fully equipped, so we had everything we needed. we had lots to do in the nearby and everything was close to reach, from restaurants to the beach and the supermarket! We would recommend to come by car so you can reach everything without worries! Thank you for everything!
Francesco Flat is very nice, clean with a great view. Well situated to enjoy the beautiful lake Major Area.
Go without hesitation !
What a beautiful location! The beach just in front of the house is great (I chose to get married here) and it is also very close to Tharros. The walk from the house to Tharros along the beach is really nice. The house itself is very unique and it has a cute area in the front behind the arches - great place to watch the sunset! I would suggest some updates. For example, the bathrooms could use a little renovating and some new beds would also be nice to enhance comfort. Overall, it was a great place to stay and Francesco was a pleasure to work with.
Everything worked out perfectly, despite our late reservation! Thanks a lot!
Absolut empfehlenswert! Wunderbarer Blick auf den See, wirklich ruhig ohne Verkehr oder störende Nachbarn, sehr schöne Komplett-Wohnung mit guten Betten, sehr freundlicher und jederzeit bereiter "Loredana" vor Ort, immer netter und bereiter telefonischer Hintergrund mit Vermieter Francesco, Einkauf absolut problemlos etwa 3 Minuten mit dem Auto zum Supermarkt, Wanderroute führt am Haus vorbei - jederzeit wieder, herzlichen Dank!!!
Very prompt responses, pleasure to do business with.
The property itself is in a great location, only minutes walk from St Kilda Road & about 10 minutes walk from Southbank precinct. The building has a great pool & BBQ area available to all guests.
The apartment was exactly what we needed for a weekend in Melbourne. Close to the city and a tram stop at the end of the block made getting around super easy. The building had all the luxuries and was extremely secure. We had four people which was fine, but would probably be suited more for groups of two or three. Francesco and Nadja were very helpful and left the apartment in a great condition for our arrival. I would stay again anytime!
Was great place, as described. Nice and friendly communication
We had a wonderful time at Francesco's house and recommend this place to everybody who wants to truly relax and get immersed into the great atmosphere of the Lake region of Northern Italy.
We have never made Francesco but our communication from the time the booking was made till the moment we left the place has been excellent. He and his mom who is managing the place have always been available on email and provided prompt instructions and advice. A few minor problems that we had in the house when we arrived got fixed within 30 minutes and we were left to enjoy this great property with wonderful views in this tranquil space.
The house had everything we needed, including all necessary appliances and WiFi.
A couple of words of advice for fellow travelers. When booking this place you need to be prepared to the to hike up the hill ( beautiful but sometimes a bit challenging for people who are not super fit) or have a car. Bus services are almost non existent there. The hike itself is scenic and most of the times we enjoyed it except for a few times when we needed to do it with our groceries :) Francesco kindly organized our rides up and down with our suitcases.
Also be prepared to hear the local train moving through Maccagno more or less frequently including night time. It was a little bit of an issue for me as a light sleeper but also kind of added some local flavor. Same goes for a couple of local churches.
Maccagno itself is a great quiet place with a couple of really good restaurants - make sure you go to the one by the camping site called Lago. Supermarket is good too just be aware that hours of service can be a little odd. From Maccagno there is a boat going to all the great places on the lake including Borromeo Islands. The only downside is that the last boat from Isola Belle departs at 3.30 pm so you will only have about 3 hours to enjoy the island. If you want to visit Isole Madre - make it a separate trip. Also make sure to catch a train to go to Bellinzona with its incredible castles.
Overall our experience was excellent ( we stayed in the house for 10 days) and we definitely hope to come back. Thank you, Francesco!
, Nadja, Christina and Stefano were pleasant and friendly. We appreciate very much their behaviour and presence. We recommend them to any Hosts.
Thank you all.
Francesco and Nadja were so easy to have around. They were polite, interesting and easy to talk to on many subjects, relaxed and super friendly. We enjoyed our time with them and were sad to see them go. They fitted in well with our family and we would love to stay in touch with them. One day get the chance to visit in Sweden or Italy.. and they can give us all the inside tips and suggestions - nothing like having some home based knowledge on your travels.
Francesco and Nadja were lovely guests to host. They were very polite and tidy and respectful of my home. We only met briefly but they have a warm presence and it was nice to have their lovely energy in the house. I would host them again anytime. Five star guests who come highly recommended.
Francesco and Nadja were truly wonderful guests. Were a pleasure to communicate with. Left the place clean and tidy - thank you!
Francesco and Nadja were absolutely delightful guests. Both well-travelled, intelligent, articulate, socially aware and blessed with a sense of humour, they are a joy to be around.
Honest and thoughtful, Francesco and Nadja left our place in immaculate condition and we cannot recommend them highly enough.
Francesco and Nadja are a delightful and friendly couple that were a pleasure for me to host in every sense. We hit it off instantly and spend quite a bit of time together including a trip to the Great Barrier Reef with some other friends and I was also able to take them to Port Douglas and surroundings in the short time they stayed with me.
Both are interesting, intelligent, down to earth and great company in a nutshell to spend time with and we become friends in doing so. They were enthusiastic and flexible in fitting in with my lifestyle and very easy and causal in they’re demeanor.
Further to this, they showed mindful consideration and respect for my home and it felt like having friends stay with me than recent Airbnb guests. Communication right from the start was clear and easy with minimum fuss or effort and they were always punctual and on time.
They also left the room spotless on check out while being clean and tidy at all times during their stay with me making it a breeze for me to turnaround the room. They are five star Airbnb guests so grab them if they write to you.
Keep in touch Francesco/Nadja; I hope to see you in Melbourne.
It was a pleasure to have Francesco and his friend staying in one of our studios. He is the perfect airbnb guest: charming, friendly, tidy and honest. It was a real delight to have two young talented, professionals who were so respectful. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for the ideal guest and would definitely welcome them back anytime they return to Brussels. I wish you all the very best for your onward travels and brilliant career in trying to solve the energy issues in developing countries.
