Our apartment is located on Lake Maggiore in a family condominium of 5 apartments. The terrace is our favorite place in summer: it is here that we have all our meals, with a relaxing view of the lake and the surrounding mountains (the photos are taken from the terrace).
The living room of the apartment is very bright, the terrace has a splendid view on the lake and is very well located to enjoy the sun from noon to the last rays of the sun.
Each family has access to the whole apartment: the two bedrooms, the bathroom, the kitchen, the living room and of course the terrace. The tenants also have access to the private garage and a parking space.
We have opted for personalized rentals because we are on a family property and we want to ensure peace to our neighbors (Italian, French and English). We do not live on the spot. However, we are always available by phone and tenants will find lots of documents about the area at the apartment.
The apartment is on the hill, on a wide winding road, which ends in a cul-de-sac. So there is very little traffic. The property is surrounded by fences and therefore very secure for children. The car is obviously necessary to move.
We really want a mutual respect: we want the tenants to feel comfortable in the apartment but also that they leave the apartment in the state they found it. Who has not already broken a cup or a plate but the least thing is to prevent from returning home! Pets are not allowed and smokers are not welcome.
The accommodation is situated in Laveno-Mombello, Lombardia, Italy. It takes from 58 to 73 minutes to reach Milan Malpensa Airport. It takes 58 minutes to reach Lugano International Airport.
The apartment is located 5 min by car from all the amenities that a small town such as Laveno offers but the small races are made, we return and we are in a quiet place with a relaxing view and sun and birds for main companions.
