We did have trouble at first trying to find the hotel even with a satnav. Lovely hotel tucked away in the small village. Family run hotel with mother who speaks no English, son who does and a couple of waitresses one who doubles as cook.
Slightly "quirky" as some things are forgotton such as butter dish with no butter and no cutlery one night.(quickly put right) But overall a beautiful experience to stay there. Wonderful room with high ceiling and big bathroom. The food was superb which is taken in fine weather in the courtyard. And if weather a bit "iffy" then a fabulous dining room with some uncovered frescos.
Breakfast is continental.
Very convenient for visiting Lakes Como and Maggiore and Orta (a gem)
