We both were very satisfied with our 2 night stay. The apartment size was good for 2 persons. Courtyard breakfast non forgettable. Location with a market around a corner and city center and train station so close, allows to reach all the nice places in the surrounding. The Owner provides excellent information kit with tasteful suggestions on what to see...

Many thanks for the lovely review Vivita, we are glad you had a great stay

We were really pleased with this apartment. It was tastefully decorated (I think it had just been re decorated before our stay) had all of the basic necessities and above all was clean. The bed was really comfortable and my partner had said its the best nights sleep he's had! The doors to the bedroom open up into a small...

About the neighbourhood
Appartamento San Carlo is nestled in a lovely traditional Italian neighbourhood 5 minutes walk from the stunning Lake Maggiore. On the same street is a post office, a small church and a mini supermarket which has an extensive deli counter selling local hams and cheeses.

The locals are very friendly and there is a taste of real Italy here.

The nearest port, Carciano, is about 5 minutes walk from the apartment where you can take a boat trip to one of the many beautiful islands, such as Isola Bella and Isola Pescatori, and numerous other stops around the lake, including Switzerland. The islands are all uniquely beautiful and though small have plenty to offer, including cafes, bars, restaurants where you can enjoy a different slant on the lake while eating fresh fish caught locally....
