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

Unfortunately we seem to be the ones to get the worst beds in the house. Two cots with wooden slats which would fall off every time one sat down on the 'bed'. We had to lift the very thin mattress and put the slats back in place. On the other bed the slats were bent the mattress sagged like a... More

La Sorgente was a fantastic bed and breakfast! Francesca was the perfect hostess- treated us like family. The rooms were a good size and clean. The view from the room/balcony was spectacular. Every morning Francesca made an amazing breakfast and she offered tips on where to eat and what sites to see. My parents and I stayed two nights and... More

La Sorgente is conveniently located in Baveno on the lake shore opposite the Borromean Isles. The building is on a hillside which requires a slight climb from street level, so would not be suitable for persons with limited mobility, but offers and excellent view over the lake. Our room was simple, but spacious, with a balcony overlooking the lake and... More
