We had a warm welcome from Ignazio and his wife, despite us arriving with a very fractious 4 year old and with both us parents rather stressed out too! The apartment is located in a beautiful, historic building right by the lake - Iganzio has interesting background on the building for those who are interested. The restoration has been carried out tastefully and sympathetically and it is lovely to see this fantastic place looked after so well. The apartment is also very well decorated and equipped - we had everything we needed and plenty of space. The view over the garden was lovely and the apartment stayed nice and cool even on the very hot days during our stay. Comfortable beds which are always great to find! This was our first time on Lake Maggiore (we know Lake Como well) and the apartment was a good base to explore. It is very close to the tourist info office which doubles as the ferry station - the ferries from Belgirate are not that frequent so read the timetable carefully but there is also the train station a short walk away (uphill on the way from the apartment - nice and easy downhill coming back) so you can get to Stresa (for more boat connections) or other places easily. We did the Lake Maggiore Express (boat to Lugano, amazing mountain train back from Switzerland then regular train back to Belgrade) - this is a wonderful day out which I totally recommend. The website has timetables which show the best times to do the trip from Belgirate. Parking by the apartment is also easy and free. Belgirate itself is a lovely small village, we enjoyed an evening apero and walk alongside the lake. There is a good small supermarket, pharmacy and gelateria as well as bars & restaurants all a short walk from the apartment. I would wholeheartedly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay on Lake Maggiore and would also recommend Ignazio as a great host - thank you!

We stayed at ignazio's place for nearly two weeks. It was a very pleasant stay-ignazio helped us, whereever he could. The flat includes a small standard of cooking supplies and dishes - we cooked each night, sometimes it was a struggle. But ok for the price. We can recommend staying there even for families.

Ignazio was very helpful with information and made sure our arrival and stay was smooth and easy. The garden flat is very charming and quiet and well equipped for all the things you might need, including wifi. The flat is away from the hustle and bustle of Stresa but also is close to essentials such as good restaurants, cafes, laundromat etc. You can also get on the ferry at Belgirate.

Very nice and quiet appartment in the perfect destination, closed to everything - lake with beach, restaurants, shops, public transport, both railway, water and auto. The town is also very nice, silent, not crowded with tourists, where it is pleasant to walk in the historic part, preserved up to our days.

We enjoyed our stay with Ignazio very much. The apartment was very clean and extremely quiet. Ignazio and his wife were most helpful in planning our stay. Great location on the lake front. Close to ferries to visit Isola Bella and Isola Madre etc. Highly recommended!

I love my lake and sailing on it.
I love the house in which I live that once was an ancient Hotel in 1800 and which belongs to my family since 1897.
Unfortunately I move from here for work during the week, but still I am on the water of a lake, (Lugano where I teach in the design School or in Como where I work, so it seems that having the water of a lake around me is a need !
Me and my wife decided to restore this apartament in 2011 and we are loving this experience of renting it giving to many families the opportunitiy to enjoy our nice lake.
We normally do not interfere with the renters, but we are happy to help anyhow to give any usefull infomation and we are happy to hear the appreciation at the departure.
In the house and in front of the house we have almost any type of floating media, if you are a sailor I will be plased to sail with you.
