We had 5 wonderful days in early October 2011. Maurizia and Giovanni made us feel very welcome and are a lovely couple. The location above Mergozzo was delightful. Although we had a car we often walked ( approx 20 mins) to Mergozzo for a swim in the beautiful lake or for an evening meal. It was just magical! The proximity to Stresa was also good so that we could easily take a ferry ride to the Borromean islands in Lago Maggiore. We also enjoyed being able to walk in the surrounding mountains (PreAlps), with easy access from Il Picchio.
We have now returned to Australia, hence the late posting.
