Guesthouse Al San Michele Stresa

Al San Michele is right in the heart of Stresa, the pearl of Lake Maggiore, in a very quiet area, at the beginning of a little road by the church of San Michele and a short distance on foot  from the beaches, shops, restaurants and the boat station from where boats depart to visit the famous Borromean Islands.

A nice walk brings you to the Villa Pallavicino which is surrounded by a magnificent park with many animals.

The surroundings offer also some routes for bike lovers and footpaths for pleasant excursions.

Also the wonderful background of the mountains is easily reachable.

The guesthouse is an old building remodernised that cannot offer space for children and the disabled persons.

Unfortunately it is not possible to accept pets.

The guesthouse has no private parking facilities, but we are situated a few meters from the lakeside where there are parking places both free and on payment.

For guests who arrive with bicycles we can offer place for them on the permises only for rooms nr. 1 or nr. 2.
