You couldn't find a more beautiful & peaceful location from which to explore Lake Maggiore. The super garden is right on the shore of the lake - we started & finished each day with a swim. One day we just stayed by the lake all day. The breakfasts were delicious, with fresh greengages & walnuts from the garden and freshly baked pastries by Roberta.
If you don't feel like driving, you can walk 5 minutes round the corner to Cerro for coffee or pizza in two little characterful cafes overlooking the lake.
GianLuca (the owner) & Roberta looked after us very well & were very kind & informative, & we enjoyed the daily visits from GianLuca's 2 little dogs. Our room was simple, very clean & comfortable.
