My name is Lucia and I live in Borgomanero. The town is not very big (20,000 people) but it offers a varied and more than adequate shopping facility, a library and ... a really wonderful pizzeria! There is also a bus station and a railway station, but I will drive you everywhere. The surrounding is very green and peaceful.
My flat is big, near the centre but in a quite area.
My guests would have their own private bedroom (single, double or twin beds) and private bathroom.

Additional Info

I can offer Italian lessons, full board and trips in an "ALL INCLUSIVE" package.

About the Area

The area surrounding the town is very beautiful and green. Orta and its lake are 10 km. away and Arona, on Lake Maggiore, 11 km. We can reach the mountains in an hour by car or visit a beautiful natural reserve. My apartment is a ten minutes' walk from the centre of the town and it is very peaceful.

House Rules

I offer homestay and personalized Italian lessons to students of any age, in the wonderful lake area in the North-west of Italy. My guests would live as member of the family for a week or longer. I am a friendly person who loves teaching her own language and taking foreign visitors sightseeing. I teach the language sitting at a table doing exercises, going sightseeing, reading a newspaper or watching and discussing a film, all this according to the student’s preferences and level.

I can host a single student or a couple. The students would be welcome to get involved in the family’s activities in order to have a full and pleasant immersion in the language and life style. I always try to meet my guests' interests: from museums to wonderful natural locations, from the lakes to the mountains, from wineries to outlets, all year round.

The cost for the "ALL INCLUSIVE" package is: 1,550.000 euros for one person, 2,550.00 for two people coming together.

These prices include: full board - all the lessons you want - trips - dinners with friends and when we eat out - me as a tutor and guide for the whole week (with the exception of one afternoon) - visit to Milan - tickets to museums and ferries on the lakes - transport - pick up / drop off at Malpensa Airport, Internet, cleaning once a week.

Smoking is allowed outdoors only.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
