Taking inspiration from years spent living in India, South America and the Middle East, my 18th century lakeside retreat is a newly renovated oasis of calm on the oldest street in Lesa. Everything has been installed recently and inside you'll find fresh, white, high-thread count Italian linens woven locally and a brand new designer Italian kitchen waiting for you.

De ruimte

During your stay in my apartment you will share the street with a 17th century foley, the town hall and a romantic botega.

The fresco of the virgin on the main facade is thought to be a later addition and dates from the early 19th century. It is believed to be the handy work of a local artist famed for his sacred art and other similar examples can be found in the churches of Lesa, Meina and Stresa.

The 90 square meter space can accommodate up to 4 comfortably and one or two more small ones at a push. 

Main bedroom: UK double bed (140cm X 190cm) in a room by itself.
Twin room: a UK queen (120cm X 190cm) and a single (90cm X 190cm)
Living room: a single futon-style sofa in the living room that I can supply bedding for on request.

This year we have fitted Hi-speed wifi which is free to guests. There is also a brand new 49 inch ultra HD internet TV with an open Netflix account (no local TV service).

Comfortable, welcoming, clean, good location. We had a great stay and were made to feel very welcome with a nice basket of treats. Great for a family as we are. Ed was super nice and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly recommend staying here! This was the perfect base for a short trip exploring this part of northern Italy, between the west coast of Lake Maggiore and the Swiss border. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean , comfortable, spacious & stylishly decorated ... And whilst fitted with all mod-cons, also bursting with amazing and charming historic period features. The host also welcomed us with fresh flowers in each room, fruit, snacks and local fruit bread, which was a lovely surprise. The location of the apartment is in the charming small town of Lesa, in a maze of historic narrow streets, within spitting distance of the shore of Lake Maggiore. Within 1 minute walk from the apartment you will find a delicious local fish restaurant, a well-stocked deli, and a great gelateria/cafe. And there is a well stocked supermarket approx 15/20 min walk from the apartment. Parking is free in the nearby public car parks & street parking. A perfect base for a trip to this region.

My friend and I had a great time at Ed's lovely place. The kitchen and Living room was our favorite place. He welcomed us with flowers, fruits and an apple cake on the table. So nice:-) its only a few steps to reach the lage and the neighbourhood is awesome too. He helped us with every question we asked to. It was the perfect decision to stay there:-)

Great place and wonderful host! We had a question regarding the size of the beds (because we where traveling with a baby) and in the end Ed bought a baby bed. When we arrived he even bought some pap for the baby. This and the fresh flowers made our arrival a wonderful experience. We can recommend the flat if traveling with a baby (tip: leave the stroller in the car than you don't have to carry it up the stairs). The flat is nicely equipped and centrally located in the old part of Lesa. Lesa is (at least in September) very quiet and not as touristy as Stresa.

We had such a lovely stay at Ed's place. The apartment was perfect, clean, quiet and spacious and we kindly left lots of goodies and fresh flowers in all the rooms. These little touches were really appreciated. The wifi speed was great - when you have a teenager this makes a big difference. We were given lots of advice on where to go and what to see, nothing seemed too much. The area is delightful. You walk out of the front door and in 50m you are at the lakeside. Great restaurants , I had the best risotto !! If you chose to go to Ed's place you are very lucky- a pleasant apartment in an incredible part of the world.

I'm a British TV Director that likes to travel all over and host in my 18th Century apartment on the shores of Lago Maggiore in between Milan and Switzerland. I look for positive inspiration everywhere I go and love the warmth of connection with other genuine Air BnB'ers.
