We were the only guests for one night at this B&B where we stayed in the Azalea room. Point #1: the place is unnecessarily hard to find ans there is no external sign. If you take the 1-way street from Cerro to Via Gottardo on the left with the red gate on your right, the B&B is behind the red... More

Having stayed at a friends residence on Lago Maggiore several times in the past I sought to replicate that special experience with my fiancé. Polidora surpassed our expectations and made for a delightful stay. Guilia (manager) and Jean Luca (the owner) were joyful and kind. The property leaves you wanting for nothing. If you've never been to the Italian lakes... More

What a wonderful 'find' and a super location for a peaceful holiday rest, just a short stroll through the stunning gardens to the lakeside beach for a cool swim. We were travelling with our dog and the Polidora B&B was so welcoming and accommodating during our stay. 'Giulia' the manager was so helpful in assisting us with anything we needed,... More

We stumbled upon this delightful property by accident almost, and it was an absolute delight staying here. The photos just don't do it justice - the location is amazing, the botanical garden breath-taking and the views of the lake, simply stunning. Oh, and there's red squirrels too! It is effectively like you're part of a Fitzgerald story and are somehow... More

Polidora is a unique B&B with an isolated garden setting right on Lake Maggiore and away from the crowds. Room was spacious with access to large common room where a great breakfast was served. Very helpful hostess Guilia made sure we were comfortable at all times.

Do not hesitate to book this stunning accommodation. Peace and tranquility on the beautiful lake maggiore. The gardens are amazing. A peaceful location to unwind and relax. Amazing pizzeria in Cerro, a 10 minute walk away in the lovely unspoilt village.

I have never written a bad critique before in my life but this place is just unbelievable. We stayed in this place last summer. It was the worst time I (43) ever had in any hotel.
