Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Charming apartment that sleeps 4 on the shores of Lago Maggiore

The apartment is on the third floor of a 300 year old building in the town of Cannobio, situated on the town’s lakeside promenade opposite the old harbour with an unobstructed view of Lago Maggiore. Entering the building and climbing the wide stone stairs takes you to an inner courtyard typical of local Italian architecture where residents used to hang washing, do their daily chores and enjoy a little town gossip. One is led back in time to the life of a simple fishing village and can for a few days experience what it is like to live in a lively Italian community on the shores of this beautiful lake.

The apartment accommodates 4 people. It has a large living room with couch that folds out into a double-bed, dining room table/chairs and fully-equipped kitchenette (includes fridge and dishwasher); one separate bedroom with double bed, one bathroom (with shower), a TV and wireless internet.

This apartment can be rented with the apartment next door to accommodate 8 people in total, see VRBO #743201

Great Location with Great Views!

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice, clean apartment for my husband and me. It is directly above one of the cafes in beautiful, quaint Cannobio. There was live music every night at the lake's edge for us to enjoy downstairs or even upstairs. The kitchen is pretty well-stocked to make coffee and cook. The owner had local resources available in a binder. There is so much to do in the area that we rarely watched t.v., but it was good to catch a little bit of international news. Air conditioning would have been nice, but we did fine with the milder summer weather in the region. We would definitely stay again and perhaps even bring our children as there was ample room. It was a great stay. Thank you!!

Excellente Lage

  • 3 of 5

Die Wohnung hat eine prächtige Lage direkt über der Promenade von Cannobio. Sehr kurze Wege zu Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.

Organisation und Abwicklung der Vermietung sind einfach und korrekt. Zum ein- und ausladen kann man bis vor die Tür fahren, ansonsten parkt man idealerweise auf dem kostenfreien Parkplatz kurz hinter der Kirche (5 Minuten Fussweg). Der Markt am Sonntag (i.W. Kleidung) stört nicht. Wenn man ruhige Nachbarn auf der gleichen Etage hat, kann man sich hier sehr wohlfühlen.

Qualität der Ausstattung / Erhaltungszustand derselben lässt in Teilen zu wünschen übrig. Etwas Reparatur hie und da täte gut.

Nachts sehr ruhig, leider sammelt die Stadt morgens um 8h die leeren Flaschen lautstark ein, was einen aus dem Schlaf reisst. Kann man aber angesichts der Lage akzeptieren.
