I don't think I have much to add to what has already been said. This is just a wonderful place, and the owners are extremely welcoming and accommodating. We were flying to Milan Malpensa and stayed here on arrival and departure nights. The room was very nice and spacious, with a nice private bathroom, the courtyard was beautiful, we had free internet connection and a nice breakfast in the adjoining private breakfast room. Carlo picks up and drops off guests at the airport or nearest train station as needed. I don't know how he manages to accommodate everyone but he does, including dropping guests off for very early morning flights. Wonderful hosts and great value for the money!

We booked this B&B because the reviews read well and it was close the airport. We needed a bed close to Malpensa. It is a remarkable B&B. Our room was spotless, had a nice attractive furniture and furnishings. It is actually a suite of rooms with a very good sized bathroom with excellent shower and good lighting (I hate poor lighting for a morning shave). Beyond the bathroom, there is a small breakfast room with a microwave and the basic essentials allowing you to make a cup or have a drink before bed in the evening. Breakfast is delivered by a separate door to the breakfast room while you are asleep. Don't worry about security as you can lock the adjoining door. You wake to the smell of lovely fresh coffee. The bed although two singles made into a double is very comfortable and gave an excellent sleep. In summary - a top B&B and is highly recommended.

28 years ago I lived and worked in Casorate Sempione so when we planned a holiday to southern Italy and discovered we couldn't get a direct flight from Scotland to Brindisi an overnight stay at Casorate Sempione near Milan Malpensa airport seemed a sensible option so I could revisit some of my old haunts. What we hadn't bargained on was finding this hidden gem. Everything you would want from a B&B you will find at I Castagni. From airport pick up and drop off, hospitable owners who make you feel very welcome, ample accomodation (not just a bedroom), delicious and extensive breakfast, good near by restaurants and that homely feel you hanker after when travelling. It's the attention to detail that makes this B&B stand out from the crowd. We would recommend to any traveller. Not just excellent as an airport stop over but also as a base to tour the wonderful local area. Milano is not far away and the wonder of the Italian lakes close at hand. Thank you Carlo and Anna for a wonderful stay.

It's not just that the owners will pick you up and drop you off at the airport, it's the fantastic hospitality that the whole family extends to all their visitors that makes I Castagni unique and great.
The courtyard and the backyard, fulll of Chestnut trees, trails and benches, make for a great stay.
We were there with our two year old and were able to use a baby cot they had for us.
The area is great to explore on a road bike, the many lakes and hills make for great riding.

We've traveled the world and stayed in many B&Bs over the years. This one forever will stay in our minds as one of the best!!
Winding up our tour of Northern Italy, we picked I Castagni B&B based on the positive reviews in this forum. But nothing prepared us to the actual experience. First and foremost, the hosts - Anna and Carlo. The most generous and hospitable people. They had embraced us as if we were members of their own family. We broke bread together with their parents and children - a three generational affair - getting an insight into Italian family life and culture as no guidebook will ever be able to convey. Anna - your kindness in shuttling us to and from the public transport, and Carlo - we could've listened to your stories all night long.
The facility was a most comfortable place and palatial in size; a full kitchen complete with a well-stocked fridge (juices, yogurts and fruits!!) and a separate living room with a sofa. Ample parking in a private, off street courtyard, completed the picture.

Thank you Anna, Carlo and family - you’re truly the best!!!

Sofia and Abraham,

This B&B is just a few minutes from the Milan airport and offers one suite including a large bedroom, sitting area and bathroom in a gated home on a side street of Casorate Sempione. The rooms are clean, fresh and air-conditioned with a bath and full shower. Free WiFi and breakfast are included. An easy two block walk takes you to La Pista restaurant, the Crazy Pub bar or a pizzeria. Carlo the owner, bilingual in Italian and English, is very accommodating and will offer to take you to the airport. Be prepared to be treated like family.
From here it's less than an hour to the shore of Lago Maggiore, with its own attractions of shopping and boat cruises to beautiful islands, rivaling :Lago Como. We find that relaxing for a couple of days upon arrival or departure makes international traveling more pleasant and less tiring. This is a great place for it.

Room Tip: There is just the one large suite
