No stress at Stresa
Two stars with 5 star hospitality at yesterday’s prices.
Stresa on Largo Maggiore has the charm of finer times so if you cannot afford the palaces of eons past pull up a stump and settle at Albergo Luina.
A hostelry of clean serviced rooms perched above the shopping and victuallers area close to the action.
This is one street back from the main lakeside Corso and is a clean machine of almost Teutonic precocity without a speck of dust to be found.
No lake views here but the street scene makes up for any visual loss as the cobblestone alleys provide a playground.
Superb Lombard ristorante food from the kitchen right at the front door served with simple condiments.
