Interview Elisa Villa Frua
What is your more intense memory, thinking of Stresa?
When I was a baby…the family lunches here in Villa Frua, and my father rowing, at early morning, toward the Fisherman’s Island, just to have a coffee there!
Point out your favorite period of the year, or moment of the day, in Stresa
Early spring mornings, when first bloomings, and their scent, announce Nature’s awakening.
Would you reveale us your favorite spot in Stresa, or would you share with us your hidden secret place?
There is a hidden part of the Promenade, with a strange tree shaped like an umbrella ( I can’t name it by the way). It is nearly facing Isola Bella, before Villa Palazzola.
Should you have to connect Stresa with a scent, what would it be?
The scent of Osmanthus

The Sky Bar, the bistrot Vicolo del Fornello, on Isola Bella and, let me say… Villa Frua!
