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

This is a lovely bed and breakfast with about the best food we have ever had- home made pastries and cakes and bread! Owners really helpful and know the area really well. The views from the rooms are great but the only drawback is its proximity to the road down below and the train up behind the house. The road... More

Just spent 3 nights at La Sorgente. Location is first class with wonderful views of the lake from the house. Breakfasts were a real treat taken on the terrace outside with everything home made. Certainly not your standard continental breakfast. Francesca and Ricardo were excellent hosts going out of their way to help with places to see, directions etc. Can't... More

Wow what a view. We stayed on the Lago room. This overlooked Lago Maggiore and 'Isola Pescatori' (Fisherman Island). Our hosts, Francesca and Carlo were very welcoming and friendly. Our room was basic but quite functional, comfortable, with an ensuite and double glazed windows and doors. The included breakfast Which was taken on the garden balcony, was always lovely with...

Fantastic service. Francesca is a wealth of information and a great host. I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting plenty of space but a perosnal touch. We all sat at the table in the morning for breakfast. There is some road noise but nothing a pair of earplugs won't fix. Also couldn't make the room totally dark. However, Highly recommend.... More

The other reviewers are dead-on in praising this B&B and its hostess. We had no problem finding it, and in her great English Francezca had told us how to park in her garage spot. The gardens are fabulous -- everything was blooming when we were there. The house is open and airy, with a modern taste in furnishings. Our room... More
