The North West Italy region
Lake Maggiore is one of the largest lakes of Italy. It belongs to 3 regions : Piemonte, Lombardia and Switzerland. Stresa is situated on the piemontese coast . From Stresa to the Swiss border it takes 1 hour.
Stresa is the most famous and attractive town of the lake. The climate is mild. Not too cold during the winter time and not too hot in the summer time. Take a sweather with you for the evenings...
The town is located in a strategic position, having Milan at only one hour by car or by train, Turin at only one hour and a half by car or by train and Mount Rosa and the Swiss mountains at only one hour drive.
Stresa is a well known little town, famous for its big hotels and the beautiful 3 islands.
The boats leave from the harbour which is located in the centre of the town and take you everywhere on the lake, but the most famous places to visit are : Isola Madre, Isola Pescatori, Isola Bella, the botanical gardens of Villa Taranto, the sanctuary of Santa Caterina del Sasso, the market of Intra, Arona and its San Carlo Borromeo statue. From Stresa, you can also take a cable car up to the mount Mottarone from where you can enjoy a wonderful view over 7 lakes.
Stresa is also famous for "Settimane musicali" which are several weeks during the summer time dedicated to classical music and operas.
The centre of Stresa is a characteristic old Italian little town with shops and typical restaurants. You can sit and enjoy your aperitive while listening to the music coming from a piano bar and then taste a dish of lasagne or risotto on the old market square.
If you like playing golf, there are 2 golf grounds up in the hills. If you like playing tennis, you may go to Hotel des iles borromees or Hotel Bristol, or to the town of Lesa. If you like trekking, then just wear a pair of comfortable boots and go!

"Lots of room"
The apartment is located on the ground floor of a family home, but we never saw anyone else. It was really quiet. It is quite large and has 2 bedrooms and a huge bathroom with washing machine. It is p… More

"Lovely tranquil location with great host"
I visited with my parent in their 70's and 5yo daughter. It suited us well as we enjoyed relaxing in the large garden, whilst my daughter enjoyed playing in the garden. There was plenty of public parking also available in Stresa and so being out of town and driving in was not a problem.

"Amazing lake view and beautiful garden"
Villa la Sacca was perfect! The location of this property is fantastic with truly breathtaking views over the lake and only a few minutes to the centre of Stresa. This was our second visit to Stresa and we would have no hesitation visiting again and staying at this property. Anna and Stefano the hosts could not have been more helpful from booking the property 6 months in advance to greeting us on arrival and being available if we needed them throughout our stay. We arrived 31 May and the weather had been unusually chilly and Anna had lit the fire for us so the apartment was lovely and warm. The apartment easily accommodated us 4 adults and we spent every morning and evening sitting in the beautiful garden overlooking the lake. The apartment is reached through a private electric gate, up a short drive so is lovely and secluded. Visiting the Italian lakes is all about the scenery and this apartment provides that beautifully and we hope one day to return.

"Amazing view of lake with immaculate garden"
The amazing views from this stone house were a pleasant surprise. The house was very spacious for our family of 4 and could accommodate more. The setting and garden are beautiful. Our hostess Anna, really welcomed us and gave lots of travel tips and even drove us into town on the last day. We spent a day island hoping followed by nice restaurants in Stresa and a cab ride home a night.

"The beauty of lago Maggiore"
We traveled to Stresa after a 8 day hike in the Swiss Alps. We were met by Anna at the train station and taken back to Villa La Sacca. The villa was serene and comfortable, just what we needed after a long hike. The views were wonderful and we felt right at home. You are situated some distance from town, which is walkable, but the highway is two lanes with lots of traffic. We found taking the bus, which comes every hour and cab was easier. The cost for a cab ride from town was about 7 euro. We loved having our own kitchen to cook, but Nona will cook to order for a small fee and she knows how to cook. We loved the entrees we ordered. I would highly recommend villa La sacca and hope to go back soon. I found the rental to be a great value as well.
