Gaze over stunning 180-degree views of islands on Lago Maggiore from the expansive, floor-to-ceiling windows of this lovely, 300-year-old rustic stone villa. Comfortable furnishings in timeless styles perfectly complement the historic architecture.
“We stayed for three nights with our 3-year-old and our dog, and this home was exactly as-advertised: cozy, inviting, and spectacular panoramic views that dropped our jaws every time we entered. As with any cliffside home in a tiny Italian village, arriving and parking can take some effort — but we never once regretted it. In fact, this is a place where my husband and I both agree we’d like to return. (And that almost never happens!) Even before arrival, Simon and his wife made it clear the were happy to help with any questions and wanted us to be comfortable. It’s not obvious from the listing, but the two bedrooms are separated by a floor in between and they wanted to be sure that would work for our family. **The bathroom is also on the lowest level, which may be important to those with mobility issues or who wake frequently during the night to use the restroom. The beds were quite comfortable and our daughter slept very well in the lower bedroom, which was considerably cooler than the one upstairs (we stayed during a June heat wave). The side patio was a sanctuary again with that view, and the quiet town of Someraro felt like a film set. Our generous hosts left us a bottle of wine, a huge loaf of delicious rustic bread, and their assurance that they were just a phone call away should we need anything at all. After chatting with our neighbors and dining at Ristorante Cardini, we felt we were among friends. (And the food! We’ve lived in Italy for 2.5 years and this was a unique dining experience with pear-stuffed pasta and a pistachio soufflé for dessert. Paired with the views and the friendly proprietors and those views again — Mamma! One afternoon we realized we’d forgotten to buy wine while we were in Stresa, so I popped into Cardini — even though they were closed — and they happily sold me a chilled bottle for below menu price. This is why I love Italy.) Even writing this review makes me pine to return. I can easily see why Hemingway loves Stresa, and should I ever write an award-winning novel, let it be known that I loved Someraro even more — relaxing in our eagle’s nest above the lake.”

“A beautifully appointed apartment ...one of two restored by the hosts/owners in the last few years.Clearly, Geraldine & Lambert have gone to great lengths to enure the apartments were renovated to blend into the charming & historically significant surroundings. The apartment was perfect for a couple but could easily accommodate another 1-2 people. Geraldine greeted us warmly & ensured we had every thing we required. If driving, the apartment is not hard to find but is on a bend on a main road down to Stresa, so follow Geraldine's instructions carefully. The town centre is approx 5 minutes away by car (or about a 15 minute walk) down windy often quite narrow roads & ones that are well known to locals but to others could be a little tricky to 'navigate' . We found a vehicle extremely useful but local taxis are available. Be aware they are several steps on an external stairway to reach the apartment.... but worth the (minor) effort! The apartment has a comprehensive 'house manual' including details on local restaurants, activities & vine yards etc.....this which was extremely helpful & important to us as many rentals don t bother to include one in their apartment & guests are often left to struggle with operating unfamiliar appliances, heating etc or to locate local facilities in the area; it even included easy to follow instructions on walking tracks down to the centre of town ! Geraldine is a warm,very generous & professional host who was on call to give any assistance required. For us ,4 days was not enough ...thank you Geraldine for allowing us to stay in your warm, cosy & beautiful apartment....it was the perfect ending to our tour of Italy .(Lehnardo S -Australia)”
