Family owned and managed, Hotel Europa was the highlight of our three-week travels in Italy. We originally picked it for its location in Sorico on the north end of Lake Como with easy access to both sides of Lake Como, and where the topography opens up into the Pian di Spagna and Lago di Mezzola Nature Reserve. Located off the main road, Hotel Europa is in a quiet location with a spectacular view of Monte Legnone.
We were warmly greeted and shown to our room with balcony and view. Hotel Europa's rooms and bathrooms have been newly renovated and modernized, are well lit, and comfortable in all respects. New digital TVs are in each room, and we were particularly delighted in a having new, enclosed shower. Free Wi-Fi is available in each room and throughout the hotel. Hotel Europa has installed solar panels on the hotel roof in its policy to incorporate energy-efficient, environmentally-sound systems in its modernization plans.
Hotel Europa has a full restaurant and we decided to eat there on our first evening. We were in for a treat. Son and hotel manager, Mattia, seated us said he would check with his mother what specialty she was cooking that evening. Freshly made ravioli was the answer, but we could have anything on the full menu. It was delicious and was the best of all the pasta dishes we had in Italy. At breakfast the next morning Mattia came in with a basket of newly-caught fish from Lake Como that her mother was cooking that evening. It, too, was absolutely delicious and we ate every dinner at the hotel.
Mattia and his family are very knowledgeable of the entire region and what there is to offer and will give you valuable tips, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, paragliding, fishing, sailing and day trips to all of the interesting towns around Lake Como among them. Relaxing along the beach shore and park next to Hotel Europa just adds to its quiet pleasantness.
We highly recommend Hotel Europa and look forward to staying there again soon, and for a longer stay.
