“Homemade cake and a host with a big heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Staying at Giacomone's B and B is a package designed to help you get away from work, stress, the world, or to write your first novel:
It is located in a tiny, remote village in the mountains (beware of the streets if you have a very wide car! ;-)), surrounded by forest, offering a stunning view over the landscape and the Monterosa mountains in the distance.
The old farm house is charming, and every little detail inside the house and around it is designed with care. As you awake in the morning, the smell of fresh flowers on the table mixes with the smell of Giacomone's freshly baked cake.
after breakfast, he will provide you with extensive recommendations for the best ice cream parlor and pizzeria in the area, hand you the boat ticket for visiting the island on Lake Orta, and arrange your dinner at a friend's place, who will serve you her home-cooked food. As you come back in the evening, lie on the couch by the fire, and enjoy a glass of red wine.
But the package would not be complete without Giacomone himself: A person who runs a business, not out of business interest, but out of a genuine interest in meeting people and making them happy. We were more than happy - thanks Giacomone, and hope to be back soon!!

Room Tip: The 2 top-floor rooms offer a great view and a large balcony.

We spend an amazing weekend in this beautiful and warm place, great hospitality, good vibe and a lot of positive power! You can enjoy a wonderful landscape from the window of the bedroom (the pink mountain). Wake up early and you will find the best breakfast at all..you can listen nice music, drink a glass of red wine and meet very cool people..
shut up and refresh your soul!!
Thank you so much Giacomone!!!

I simply love this place. The photos you find on the website demonstrate exactly what you get, but what they don’t show is what I love about the place the most. The warmth of the atmosphere, the coordination of colors and flavors that you will find on the breakfast buffet, oddities such as a birds nest used as a boiled egg holder, the smell of freshly made cake and ground coffee in the morning… and most importantly the good humor of the owner Giacomone. It’s a must if you are in the area!

I stayed at Giacomone's for a couple of days, and I can say it is a really special quiet place, with beautiful surrondings and great view over the landscape.
The room was with ancient forniture and very clean.
Breakfast was rich and very nice: 7 different types of organic jam and bread, yoghurt and internetional breakfast available.
The owner is very nice and helpful and he speaks english.

I would reccomand this B&B to everyone interested in viting this beautiful region.
