“A wonderful place to rest and be pampered in the mountains of Varese”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at this B&B, largely in part due to the attentiveness and warm reception from the owners Grazia and Constantino. We were greeted with delicious home-made cookies and strawberries when we came in the door (not to mention a very warm welcome on behalf of Giselle, the owners' little dog), and every morning after that we'd be surprised with another one of Grazia's delicious baked goods or recipes in addition to the delicious fresh-squeezed orange juice, coffee, and assortment of cheeses and ham. The room was large, comfortable, and clean and everything about the building's decor was rustic and charming. We wish we could have stayed longer!!!

Stayed at this lovely B&B in June 2012 where the hosts were so hospitable. We had breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beautiful little garden.Grazia made cakes & jam for breakfast. Bedroom was a good size & being an old stone- built property was cool even in the heat. Tino gave directions to two restaurants (one local, the other in Laveno) both serving excellent food.If you wish to stay in a B&B away from the tourists but 10mins drive to the lake this is the place for you. An oasis in an Italian village.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room with the balcony over the garden

The B&B was booked within the hour including the search. The first impression (website) was good and the reviews on trip advisor were good as well.
After arriving at Borgo Sanda our experience was exactly as described in the previous reviews. The owners were very nice and the rooms (beds) are nice and comfortable.
The breakfast with home made pies are very good and each day (5 nights) the pie was different. The breakfasts were served in the garden with an nice view over the garden, the mountains and the valley.

The owners were very helpfull and gave us a lot of options on how to spend the day. Ofcourse since we are in Italy eating is very important and they also gave us valuable tips on were to eat. Especially Al Tramvai d'antan was an excellent tip. It's on walking distance from the Borgo Sanda over a steep old cobblestone road. We enjoyed one of our two dinners there together with the owners of 'our' Borgo.

In short we can really advise you to book at Borgo Sanda!

Today my fiance and I just returned after spending 3 wonderful nights at the Antico Borgo Sanda. My cousin booked the reservation for the 4 of us after having read several great things about this b&b on-line. Our stay was nothing short of perfect! We were warmly greeted by our hosts with a large pot of coffee and cookies which was perfect for our rainy weather. We were then shown to our rooms which were beautifully decorated and spotless! Both rooms were very large and the beds were "king" size which is great for European accommodations.

Unfortunately we had a great deal of rain the first day so we took breakfast inside their gorgeous kitchen on the 1st day. But the 2nd and 3rd day we were fortunate enough to eat outdoors in their picturesque garden. The breakfast of freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade cakes (delicious), local cheese and meats were copious. Each night we took a bottle of wine outdoors and sat in the garden. Our hosts were so friendly and considerate of our needs. After our 3rd night in the garden it felt more like a friend's house then a b&b.

I highly recommend that you spend your next vacation here. The area is beautiful and the b&b is fantastic!!!! Thank you for making our vacation one we will never forget.

We stayed here for 4 days in april at the begining of a 10 day trip around the Italian lakes. It was a lovely start to our holiday, in such a beautiful hillside location, and just a short 15 minute drive to lake maggaiore. Our hosts were very welcoming, with a lovely breakfast (complete with some fantasic home cooked cakes! ) served weather permitting, in the garden each morning. They booked us in to a couple of great local restaurants, especially Al Tranval D`Antan Restaurant (see our seperate review)

Very comfortable room, furnished beautifuly, with a traditional feel.Lovely cast iron bed, wooden antique dresser, and old style deep bath. Beautiful view over the garden and down the valley from the balcomy outside the room.

A great start to our holiday, with some lovely people, in a beautiful place, highly recommended.

Antico Borgo Sanda is one of the nicest places I have been in this price category. The rooms are with tipical italien charme, breakfast is amazing and the hosts are more than kind. Also you can use the nice and playful garden. If you would like to stay in a very special, romantic place you should choose Antico Borgo Sanda.

We can highly recommend a stay in Antico Borgo Sanda to everybody who searches for a comfortable, pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Far away from mass tourism we spent a lovely week with delicious breakfasts in the morning-sun on the wonderful terrace, which is also the best place to enjoy an excellent bottle of Italien wine. Aesthetic rooms with a wonderful view over the valley. We enjoyed the enormous hospitality of our hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Ventura, who always took care of individual needs and wishes. They were helpful in organizing trips and giving us valuable advices.
Antico Borgo Sanda and its owners left outstanding remembrances.
