Our hosts, Neil and Elvira, were very welcoming and helpful. Elvira even drove to the closest supermarket to show us the way. The location is superb, in a lovely little village clinging to the side of a hill overlooking Lago Maggiore, less than 10 minutes drive from Verbania-Intra where there are shops, restaurants and the ferry. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with two large bedrooms, and is cool even in the heat of the day. We stayed 5 nights and would gladly have stayed longer.

The apartment was very clean and big, supporting the good impression from the pictures. Unfortunately there is no view on the lake and no veranda where one could sit outside. Other than that the location in Ghiffa was really nice and Neil was a great host who provided us with many great tips regarding activities and restaurants around the lake.

Great Appartment. for 4 to 5 people. We ve been there with a 2 year old child and it was no problem. The appartment is a about 5-10 minutes away from larger villages / towns. There is a nice view from onto the lake almost next to the house. Walking down to the lake only takes several minutes, but walking up is quite an afford. Parking is ok (not next to the house). The owner's are super nice people and they helped us finding good restaurants, spots, beaches etc. Great value for a low price.

Me and my friends spent in Neil's apartment five days and four nights. We came mainly because of a concert in Locarno. So Ghiffa apartment for us was ideal, cost-effective and their position the more than that. The apartment is nicely furnished, kitchen equipment is more than a standard, so that you can cook like at home, for that I was grateful. The important thing for us was the parking that was available next to the house. The location is ideal for trips, only one hour journey to Milan, 40 minutes to Switzerland, where you can visit the beautiful Ponte dei Salti, export a cable car up the mountain or you just go through the town of Locarno, at least straight in Ghiffa bathe in lago. Neil and Elvira were helpful and kind. If I have to re-route around Italy Ghiffa definitely will contact you again! Thanks for all.

Sono una pensionata che insieme a mia figlia Elvira ha ristrutturato l'appartamento di una zia, in un tranquillo paese sulla riva piemontese del Lago Maggiore.
