The place is a cozy family-run B&B. Francesca was very sweet and attentive all the time, offering home-made delicious breakfast. The place has wonderful view over the lake and islands from each room. We wouldn't go to another place at Lago Maggiore. If you really want to enjoy the location, stay in La Sorgente.

My husband and I stayed at La Sorgente on our second trip to Italy/ Switzerland. We prefer to stay in B&B's as opposed to hotels/motels, and were not disappointed with this one. We stayed 2 nights and used it as our hub for visits to Stressa and the surrounding area. The room was comfortable and clean, and our hosts were... More

I stayed at La Sorgente with my husband in August for 3nights and we really couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay. We are both in our early 30's and have not been to this area of the Lakes before. I think our stay was made even more memroable as Francesca is absolutely amazing, she was lovely to... More

Here's a little about us, which I think is important and I wish people would always do in their reviews because it makes a huge difference: My fiancé and I spent a weekend here. We are American but we just moved to Italy about 3 months ago for a 2 year job commitment. We are 28 and 34 years old,... More

We had two fabulous breakfasts with Francesca. She puts out a great spread - fresh fruit, meat and cheese, homemade bread (by her husband, Ricardo!), tasty pastries, and juices - but the best part is chatting with her. She speaks so many languages that she can communicate with just about anyone. She is able to make anyone comfortable with her... More

The advice on resturants and sight seeing was exceptional, the view from our room was breath taking. Breakfast-magnificent. They were the best hosts ever. Road noise is a minor issue if you leave the windows open. Geoff & Merrin ( Melbourne Australia.)

Francesca and Ricardo are exceptional hosts and we had a lovely stay at La Sorgente where they and their special cat Pippa made us feel very welcome and completely at home! They also provided wonderful advice and recommendations about the local restaurants and sights which we would never have had if we had stayed in one of the big, touristy... More

Although we booked on the wrong month, Francesca and Ricardo welcomed us warmly. We had a wonderful stay. The room has first class views over the islands and the breakfast is delicious. The great tips Francesca gave us and the cool cat make one realize why it is so nice to stay at a B&B. Thumbs up

The views from our room were incredible, however, there were times when we wondered whether they made up for the traffic noise that the location brought. The first part of the walk to town was a challenge with little or no sidewalk for quite a distance in either direction.

First off sorry for answering so late and thanks a lot for your review. Unfortunately there is nothing that we can do against traffic. Our house is on the main street between Stresa and Baveno and traffic noise is the downside of such a beautiful view. We do not hide this and there are even many other reviews where you... More

We recently spent a week with Francesca & Riccardo. The room was exceptionally clean and tidy and the bed was very comfortable indeed. The breakfast was huge - great variety and all home made. It was good to sit outside and take in the fabulous view across the lake. Riccardo collected us from the train station, which was helpful. They... More
