Very comfortable room with views over Lake Maggiore and Borromean Islands. Francesca is a wonderful hostess giving plenty of helpful information and advice. Breakfast on the terrace was delicious and home made, even the yoghurt. We were not disturbed by the neaby road.

We have stayed here twice now - once in April (for a quick trip to sort our wedding papers) and then in May ahead of our wedding. In short, lovely little B&B with the most helpful and friendly host - Sissi. Sissi does the most fantastic breakfast - beautiful fresh pastries with ham, cheese and other flavours, cakes and all...

My Fiancé an I have a couple of tickets to Malpensa and no place to go. We decided to explore the Maggiore lake and we found this place that seemed to have a breathtaking view from the rooms. Well, everybody could take a good picture, so we didn't expect that much. Then we arrived and once opened the window we... More

We had a wonderful 3 nights on Lake Maggiore at La Sorgente. I never write reviews on Trip Advisor, but am wholeheartedly writing this one. Francesca is a wonderful hostess. She made us feel so welcome, spent lots of time giving us great advice about things to do, restaurants, etc. Breakfast is delicious, with good expresso, home-made cakes, bread, yogurt... More

Francesca Thank you so much for our wonderful stay - an idyllic setting overlooking Isola Bella, with sunshine across the lake while eating a scrumptious breakfast of local and home-made produce. Such a warm welcome and genuine interest in all your guests, with high proficiency in English. We unreservedly recommend this as a stop from which to explore the Italian... More

The place is a cozy family-run B&B. Francesca was very sweet and attentive all the time, offering home-made delicious breakfast. The place has wonderful view over the lake and islands from each room. We wouldn't go to another place at Lago Maggiore. If you really want to enjoy the location, stay in La Sorgente.

My husband and I stayed at La Sorgente on our second trip to Italy/ Switzerland. We prefer to stay in B&B's as opposed to hotels/motels, and were not disappointed with this one. We stayed 2 nights and used it as our hub for visits to Stressa and the surrounding area. The room was comfortable and clean, and our hosts were... More

We had two fabulous breakfasts with Francesca. She puts out a great spread - fresh fruit, meat and cheese, homemade bread (by her husband, Ricardo!), tasty pastries, and juices - but the best part is chatting with her. She speaks so many languages that she can communicate with just about anyone. She is able to make anyone comfortable with her... More
