Sacro Monte di Varese is a special place, and the Borducan is a very special hotel. The views over the lakes and across the plain from up high are stunning, and the Art Nouveau architecture and interiors of this hotel remain amazing. Of course, there are easier options to get to a hotel from Malpensa airport than renting a car... More

We used Hotel al Borducan as a base to explore Lake Maggiore and the surrounding area. The hotel is a charming period building that has been thoroughly restored and has many of the modern touches you'd expect. Our room was quirky and charming. We accessed our bed via a steep stairs / ladder. This was great fun and gave the... More

Lovely couple and great host, helpful in all ways! The breakfast they serve was delicious, and the view is stunning from the rooms and the restaurant. They get our highest recommendation and they deserve it :-)

We had lunch here, breakfast, dinner...simply a snack. And we even spent a night...even if we are from Varese and we travel half of the world. This pearl of beauty is charming and astonishing. Out of main tourist routes it worth a week end and the little room overprice. The rooms have all a breathtaking view and are all different.... More

This hotel is in a lovely Art Nouveau building in the picturesque village of Sacro Monte. The owners were friendly and helpful, and the rooms are spacious - ours had a mezzanine level with a desk and comfy chairs - and the bed was very comfy! Breakfast was great - a buffet which included home-made breads and cakes (the pineapple... More

This hotel is really beautiful, inside and out. The views are spectacular and the hotel has been lovingly restored to it's 1920's heyday. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake and mountains is something very special. We had a lovely dinner at the hotel on the first night and we were accommodated for our vegetarian predilections. The recommended bottle of... More

Sacre Monte is a lovely romantic, charming village. It's set very high so the views are fantastic. After settling into our room we had dinner on the virander (Oliver had pre reserved us a table outside with us being patrons). Dinner was lovely, very relaxing and picture perfect views to constantly look at. Breakfast was also lovely and in particular... More

My girlfriend & I stayed here in July, after a winding drive up the hill/mountain side you come to Hotel Borducan, a very well kept hotel and set to maximise the views out towards the lakes. Parking is a bit of a pain, very tight roads and not a lot of space. Which also means short but steep walk up... More

All other reviewers have given this place a good review, and for good reason. It's a nice place. Sacro Monte is some drive out of Varese, high up in the hills and so has great views out over the plain below. It's a very charming village, with lots of litlle paths, stairways and passages among charming old houses and religious... More

We are the couple that travelled with Jackie and Tony in late August to several European destinations, including Verese, Italy. What a wonderful experience we had meeting Oliver (the owner) and his wife at Villa Hotel al Borducan. The food was excellent and the hotel was immaculate. A perfect romantic getaway. The views from the Restaurant balcony were breathtaking and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel-restaurant „Al Borducan“ , a vintage manor house, has been completely refurbished without disturbing the original Art Nouveau style of the 1920s.To this day each room has kept its unique charm of the former Bregonzio residence and choice pieces of vintage furniture further the congenial atmosphere of the manor house. It goes without saying, however, that modern facilities like sat-tv, telephone, safe, free of charge wireless internet access, minibar and en suite bathroom cater to the convenience of our guests.Incastonato nel borgo medievale del Sacro Monte di Varese, immerso nel parco naturale del Campo dei Fiori, questo piccolo, raffinato hotel è studiato appositamente per gli ospiti che cercano qualcosa di speciale…L’hotel- ristorante “Al Borducan” gestito da una giovane coppia itala – austriaca, è un’antica villa del 1924 in stile liberty, completamente ristrutturata lasciando inalterato l’aspetto originario, una splendida cornice per ogni tipo di evento ed uno scenario esclusivo per momenti indimenticabili.Il tè pomeridiano, un buon bicchiere di vino degustato in terrazza, la lettura di un libro in giardino o il riposo in una delle dieci romantiche e confortevoli stanze, regalano preziosi momenti di relax. ... more   less
