I received such a warm welcome from Lorraine and Franco, nothing was too much trouble. Very comfortable room and lots of excellent food and wine (all the fruit and vegetables are home grown, foraging for mushrooms with Franco is a 'must do'). Plenty of interesting places to explore and the combination of mountains and lakes is intoxicating. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for your kind words. You were a wonderful guest, so interested in everything nature has to offer even in the off-season (off-season for tourists, certainly not for mushroom-lovers). I am glad you managed to catch the final days in which Villa Taranto gardens were open, and thank you for sharing your magnificent photos. I particularly liked the one... More

Really loved the fresh vegetables and fruit from the large garden. Rooms comfortable and clean, although hot water pressure a problem! Lorraine and Franco are a very interesting couple making the experience well worthwhile.

Thank you for your kind words. You visited when our 'forest fruits' were at their very best, so we could offer you a fruit salad made of freshly-picked raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, red and white currants, red and green gooseberries, with home-made gooseberry ice cream... as well as all the vegetables Franco lovingly tends all season. It is a shame you... More

A large group of us went to Cascina Cesarina over the summer, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The house itself is beautiful. The rooms are great - very clean but really have that rustic feel so it feels like a unique experience. The hosts were so welcoming - we really felt at home. Plus, Lorraine is a native English...

Even though we had a short stay it was altogether wonderful: the location is beautiful - with the forest just at the door of the B&B - and with the swimming pool in it! The warmth of the owners, and therefore of the general atmosphere is very welcoming and put us at our ease immediately. An exemplary B&B.

Norwegian family with 3 kids stayed for 3 nights in August. The kids enjoyed the pool, table tennis and the dogs, and they are still talking about Lorraines pasta! The food was great, and we all enjoyed the proximity to Laggio Maggiore. We really appreciated the meals together with the family, and would like to visit the place again!

After some difficulty locating the house tucked away under an archway we were delighted to discover this enchanting family friendly B&B.
