About the Area
At the B & B, we are waiting for your visit! An old rural house renovated with all comfort in a very small village, close to Lake Maggiore (10 min drive), Malpensa International Airport (20-30 min drive) and Milan capital of fashion and shopping ( about 40 minutes by car). Friendly and helpful host family! Our B & B is an optimal solution for travelers passing (2km from the exit of the motorway), but also for those who prefer to stay a few days and visit our wonderful region in peace. If you need a private car park, we gladly offer you our small enclosed private courtyard, note that it is however too small for large cars. We have two double rooms, each with balcony and private bath; the big tavern, where you will be served a delicious breakfast, and the small reading room are at your disposal. Only a cradle can be placed as an extra bed (free up to 4 years old). Families with children under 14 enjoy a special price on the second room. The host family has their private apartment and therefore respects your peace and independence - it remains however present in case of need. In the narrow alleys of the village you can hear the 'blah' of passersby, the rooster or the birds singing or the dogs barking ... You can get to Arona (lake) by bus. If you are traveling without a car, we will be happy to arrange a shuttle service at a reasonable price. Lake Maggiore offers all types of water sports, a rich cultural program and wonderful walks thanks to the trails of its gentle hills. Other sports such as golf, horse riding, climbing, tennis and many more are available to the active visitor. We have a Tiffany pussy, rather shy.

Séjour très agréable chez Catherine; la maison est au calme, le petit-déjeuner varié et copieux et Catherine est très serviable et disponible pour conseiller sur les visites à faire dans les environs. La cuisine est mise à disposition le soir si vous le souhaitez, ce qui est bien pratique quand on est fatigué de sa journée.
très bon accueil Catherine très sympathique
bel endroit dans un petit village typique médiéval et calme
