Description of the Stresa vacation apartment rental
This charming, well-equipped apartment is strategically located in the Italian Lakes region with open and far reaching views of the lake and the alps.

Newly renovated in 2009, it has all needed facilities including a full kitchen, large living room, dining area, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with showers (of which one in-suite) and parking space. The balcony provides great views of Lago Maggiore (hill-side location) and the alps in the distance and offers a comfortable setting for dining al fresco. The living room has a fireplace, Satellite TV and a DVD player. Free mobile wifi is now offered making internet a truly mobile experience, Ideal for a group of friends or 2 families, two of the bedrooms have queen size beds while the third bedroom has a bunk bed and can accommodate two additional single beds to sleep a total of 4. The apartment is child friendly: one of the showers includes an infant tub; there is also a crib that can be utilized. In addition there is a ground floor bicycle room to accomodate for bicycles and strollers.

The apartment is located on the top floor of a 3-story hill-side apartment building near one of Italy's most visited lakes, Lago Maggiore and is just on top of Stresa, a prestigious historic town on the lake. Stresa with its harbor is one of the main gateways of Lago Maggiore - you can visit the Borromean Islands from here or cross over by boat to one of the other towns on the Lake. The local pebble beach is easily reachable. Nearby is a boat rental place. A car is desirable - although it is feasible to stay there without a car as a bus stop is near the apartment that will take you down to the harbor and as the centre is down the hill and only 15 minutes by foot.
