No wifi, but there is plenty of wifi to be found down by the lake. Are you going on vacation to sit on your computer all day? I hope not!
First off, the couple who manage the apartment as two of the most helpful, nicest people I've met. Enrico even picked me up from the ferry dock in Intra, since I was traveling with a bicycle in a big bike bag. FYI, if you are traveling by train, don't do what I did, which was go to Laveno then take the ferry over. Just go to the Verbania-Pallanza station and take the bus right to the piazza around the corner from the apartment.
The apartment itself was well equipped. I ended up cooking a bit, and I had no problem with that. They even had a toaster/ oven that I was able to roast some vegetables in. There is an elevator, but no wifi. Luckily, down at the lake (2 minute walk) there are lots of gelaterias that are open very late that have free wifi.
I loved living at this apartment for a little over a week! The view out the window towards the lake was amazing. You could see over the town, down to the lake and you could see Mottarone and the other mountains as well. Beautiful!
The location is great. There is an amazing bakery just a few meters down the road. The lake is a few minutes away, there are some good restaurants, and the Pallanza part of Verbania is much quieter than Intra. There is a bus to Intra, but you can easily walk there and back. In Intra, there are more restaurants, lots more tourist stuff to do. Also the boats to the famous Isole are right in Pallanza, so it's a great little town. I loved my time there!
Also, the pullout couch/ bed is really comfortable. I wasn't sure how that was going to be, but they had some extra pads in the closet for it, and I was able to sleep very well there.
Also, there is a small grocery store around the corner, but the larger Esselunga, is not far away by foot. 15 minutes or so. I'd say buy your heavy stuff like water at the close store, then go to Esselunga for anything else.
Overall, a great stay here. I'd stay with them again in the future and highly recommend this apartment to...
