We had a great time at this property.
The views. The caretaker was delightful even though her English was limited. She had provisioned the refrigerator with bottled water, eggs, butter, a couple of beers and cokes which had we known about we wouldn't have bought for ourselves prior to our arrival. She also had a lovely bowl of fruit for us as well. Terraces were great, plenty of seating a table and the views!
the train. we got used to it by the end of our stay but it took awhile. I was glad I had earplugs for sleeping. It is something we noticed everywhere we went. The trains are excellent and well used because they are conveniently located and run through towns so lots of people live within earshot of the train. I suppose it's part of being there.
The nearby towns of Lesa, Stresa, Arona, Meina were all lovely. In Stresa we went to Isola Bella, an island with a palace and beautiful gardens. North of Stresa we found another garden, Giardini di Villa Taranto, which we had been to 25 years ago. We spent some time in Como, near Turin and in Milano as we ventured out from our immediate surroundings a lot.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest town was Lesa, downhill toward the lake or uphill to Massino Visconti, neither really within walking distance unless you have a lot of time.
Tips or Restaurants:
Property was well equipped.
It is a windy ride with lots of twists and sharp turns which we mastered by the end of our stay but it posed quite the challenge in the beginning. We did not have GPS.
