I moved with my wife Francesca to Lake Maggiore from Milan 3 years ago, and I kept this flat that Francesca (an architect) has completely re-designed.
We have a good experience in being guests and in hosting people, since we are members of Homelink (home exchange): more than 80 people have already stayed in our apartment (... and they have all been quite happy about that...!).
Don't be shy and contact me for any curiosity you have about my house.
P.S. A warm welcome to all the "Foodies" and "Wine Lovers" group members!
