“Home for a month”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed for a month whilst on a course at Agusta, I wanted to avoid a month in a hotel with hard beds, thin walls, poor internet and difficult parking. This apartment was a good choice as it was only a 10 minute walk into Arona or to the local supermarket. It had a remotely controlled gate entrance with ample parking space. The apartment is part of the ground floor of a family house and is large and well appointed, the heating and hot water worked very well. The bed was comfortable which was a bonus. The family were very hospitable and were quick to try and sort out the problems I had with the internet, which were caused by the service provider and not the owners fault. I really enjoyed the large garden and the fact that I could sit outside under the balcony even when it was raining. The whole garden area is available for your use, complete with garden chairs, recliners and a barbeque. There is even a games room with a table tennis table. Mrs G came to stay for a week and she loved it as a base to explore the lake whilst I was working, and it's close to the railway station as well. The family has several cats and a dog. The cats were a welcome diversion, the dog is a little noisy at times. I would stay there again as it is very good value for money and ideally located as a base for both work and pleasure. The friendliness afforded to me by the family, during my long working trip made all the difference. Thank you Silvia, particularly over the unexpected actions of the USA website (not Trip Advisor) that I tried to book through.

“Lovely Hosts, Spacious, Clean & Well Equipped Apartment”

Have just arrived back from II Gelsomino and what a lovely stay we had. Our hosts Silvia & Erica were there to greet us on arrival and the apartment surpassed our expectations. Spacious, clean, well equipped and in a great location to explore the lake and surrounding areas. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.
I provided feedback during my stay re the shower which I felt was a little dated and lacked pressure however Silvia has since advised they have replaced the shower following my feedback - brilliant!
