Quite simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in.
It is situated high in a picturesque valley, well off the beaten track but still within reaching distance of Lake Como, Milan, Lugano and many other beautiful places.
The owners are delightful and do everything to make sure you are happy. There is a quaint little restaurant in the hotel where they cook home-grown produce which is delicious and very reasonably priced. There are a few farm animals you can look at if you wish, great for young kids, there were pigs and geese when we were there, and a lovely sheepdog called Baby who comes to say hello to you without ever barking or jumping up - she does not follow you around if it's obvious you don't want her to but if you don't mind her being there she will sit quietly with you like a companion.
The rooms are accessed from a pretty outside courtyard and are all indiviually furnished and painted. The shower in the bathroom was luxurious, and we could hear the stream which was soothing to sleep (but you can close the double-glazed window too if you don't want to hear it). The bed is very comfortable and there is an alarm clock provided on the bedside table. Also provided in the room are some of their delicious homemade honey sweets. They make your bed every day and so it is always nice to come back to after a long day exploring the region.
The breakfast is delicious, again all home-grown jams, honey, etc. On our last evening, we fancied some proper Italian coffee but it was too late for the bar, but the owner offered to make it in her own house and brought it to our rooms - our stay was full of these wonderful extra gestures from the owners.
There is ample car parking and only four rooms at the hotel so it is never busy and being the place that it is, the other guests are all in the same mindset as you and want a quiet, relaxing break, so there is never any trouble with noise.
We were genuinely sad when it was time to leave and we would love to go back there again as soon as we can.
