“Great Hospitality and Welcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

I can highly recommend a stay here. We were greeted on arrival and made to feel very welcome by David, Penny and Mr Pepper! Great breakfast and hospitality and nothing was too much trouble. I hope to return in the not to distant future - thank you both.

We stayed 3 days with David & Penny. Despite a capricious weather we really enjoyed our visit. David and Penny are really helpful and kind to give us advices on what to do and where to eat !
On the morning they prepare a delightful breakfast and they don't mind to chat with you (I really appreciate that point : )).
The place is very clean and tidy.
The surroundings are stunning (dont miss the Val Grande National Park !)
La Casa del Giardiniere is the place to be.
Thank you very much David and Penny !
See you soon !

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 were very welcoming hosts, with David proving to be the font of all knowledge on places to go and things to see. There was a nice breakfast available, comprising cereals, fruit salad, bread, jams, yoghurts and croissants. Penny will also prepare you the perfect boiled egg if it takes your fancy. There is a very good local restaurant just across the road, which is very welcome after a hard day's sightseeing. Other options involve driving.

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 may return one day, as there are still so many wonderful sights awaiting.
Our best regards
David and Penny

Couldn't agree more with everything that has been written. Breakfast, location, cleanliness etc all superb. For us though the quality of a B and B is about the people who run it and Penny and David are the most wonderful hosts! Always there to greet you on arrival/return, great conversation and advice over breakfast and simply couldn't do enough for you (even offered to lend us some money for a meal over the road when they thought we had no cash). Couldn't recommend this place enough, you will love it!
We travelled with our four year old daughter so had the attic room so she had her own room which was perfect.

We chose this on the basis of the excellent TripAdvisor ratings - and David and Penny have definitely earned their rating! We received a very warm welcome and stayed in the lovely attic room (which also has a charming little balcony). David has great advice on what to do and where to go. With the Alps and the lakes all nearby, they really are brilliantly situated. I think it would be quite tricky to do the area justice without your own set of wheels - but we did so we were happy! Delicious breakfasts, and local restaurants were also fab. Enjoy your stay - we certainly did! :-)

we stayed with David, Penny and Mr Pepper for a few days in July 2014 and felt the comfort of their hospitality during the entire time. The bnb is extremely well maintained, rooms are clean and the breakfast hearty with fresh local products. It is well located next to a superb restaurant, Lago Maggiore is only a short drive through beautiful landscape away.

David and Penny know the region around Lago Maggiore very well and are able to provide you with a programm on every day, no matter whether you are a hiker, city person, swimmer, golfer, a cultural person, or anything else.

we sincerely hope all your future guests will return your great kindness.

Thank you David, Penny, Mr. Pepper and your many cats for a fantastic for night stay in Stropino from 4th August.
The breakfast was as fantastic as previously described with the additional bonus of a freshly made apricot cake.
Your advice on places to see, with accompanying maps was detailed and all-encompassing, including the best restaurants, shops and gelato vendors for each place we visited. You even told us about the best store to buy bread, ham and cheese from enrolee to a special day in the mountains.
You clearly work hard to ensure that your guests not only enjoy your home but also your beautiful surroundings. Many, many thanks.
