My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights recently and it proved to be an excellent base for exploring Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta and the surrounding areas. It is about a 10 minute drive from Stresa and is also handily placed about 5 minutes from the A26 motorway. The accommodation itself is very comfortable and clean. David and Penny... More

Thank you for your kind review and also for your wonderful company. The weather was a little unsettled but this did not detract you from completing your tour of the gardens at Villa Taranto, and of course the beautiful Isola Bella....not forgetting your visit to Lake Orta, via the stimulating drive over Mottarone's summit 1491 mts. We hope that you... More
