Cascina Incocco
Ranked #3 of 10 Arona B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Four of us stayed here for 3 nights in this lovely Italian country setting. The hosts were away for the first 2 nights but we were looked after so well by their friend Francesca and then met Marje and her husband on our last day and what lovely people they all were. The rooms are impeccable, lovely old building with beautifully appointed bathrooms, the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, thick stone walls kept the rooms cool in the very hot temperatures we had. The breakfast served in a little chapel was a feast of croissants, home baked bread, delicious meats and cheeses, fresh fruit and one of us being unable to eat gluten had her own gluten free cake made for her. You need a car to get around but it is easy driving distance to sights nearby. We loved staying here and would come again if we could.

We spent a night at Cascina Incocco last week and wished we had more time to spend there. The room was beautiful and spacious - with tons of natural light. The bed was the most comfortable we have slept on. The bathroom was updated and spacious. Breakfast in the converted chapel was the best we had all trip - fresh fruit, great coffee, delicious homemade bread, local meats and cheeses.

More impressive than that - Marjie and Fiorenze were amazing hosts. Marjie spent a long time talking to us about local attractions, and we wished we had more time to explore the area. We took a lovely walk to a neighboring town for dinner at Castigneta (I am sure I spelled that wrong) upon their recommendation, and loved the restaurant and the pleasant walk on the local trails.

We truly hope to have the opportunity to visit Cascina Incocco again!

My husband and I stayed at Cascina Incocco for two nights and wished we could have stayed a month! The property is so beautiful and peaceful and we felt instantly comfortable and at home. The dogs and cats were so friendly and the proprietors' son Roff was very helpful our first day. Marjie and her husband were away that day and Roff handled everything with grace and took great care of us. Marjie returned the next day and is just so wonderful. Our room was huge, with the most comfortable bed we had during our whole 10 days in Italy. It was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was very big and nice. The breakfast each morning was served in the chapel on the property and was delicious. Marjie and her husband even got up extra early on the morning we had to leave to make sure we had breakfast before our flight. I would highly recommend Cascina Incocco as your home away from home when visiting the lake region.

What a total find!! My family loved this quant B&B. We were greeted by Margie's 2 dogs and her crazy cat " Tin Tin". Our room was huge . The Hastens beds were so very comfortable and the room was spotless. It is so peaceful and yet only 10 minutes to Arona. Margie was truly an exceptional host. She took my kids up to her barn to see all of her animals, called the airport in the morning to check our flights and still managed to make us an early breakfast. I would certainly come back in the summer and visit this beautiful lake region using Incocco as my home base. I was amazed at how much detail and thought went into the restoration of this property since there are only six rooms. Located just 30 minutes from MXP, this place is a true treasure. If you have trouble finding the property just ask anybody where the Canadian Vet lives and they will point you in the right direction.

We stayed at Incocco for a night after a week of skiing in the Montarosa region. Although the place is a little difficult to find it is worth the quest. The rooms are large with wonderful amenities each unique to the individual rooms such as whirlpool tubs, Hastens beds, lots of windows that overlook the beautiful countryside. Margie is an exceptional host, on the morning we were due to leave to go back to the states it was snowing hard and she was up early already on the computer checking the conditions of the road and whether our flights were delayed at all (they were). The property is located just outside of Arona which sits on Lake Maggiore - good shopping and beautiful views.

One other convenience to note is that (in good weather) you are only about 30 minutes from Milan's Malpensa airport.

Room Tip: The room on the third floor to the right as your are facing the Inn has the whirlpool tub, a lovely...

We found this place through tripadvisor whilst lunching in Arona, didn't fancy our chances at Italian on the phone so thought we'd drive up and chance it.

Luckily, whilst one of the owners is an Italian farmer, the other is Canadian! So, for what was truly a drop in we were welcomed by two wnderful dogs, given a room for the night, allowed to use a barn to compete some work, brought coffee and biscuits and generally well looked after.

The farm buildings themselves have been beautifully restored, though if I were super critical having IKEA furniture doesn't quite measure up! I have some of the very same furniture and fittings at home! It was cold, but then it is the middle of winter and we turned up unplanned.

Breakfast was taken in the chapel, and again whilst cold was greatly hospitable and wonderful fresh produce.

A few more pro's:
Gallons of hot water, a REAL hairdryer! As a regular traveller with long hair you have no idea hopw happy this makes me. Immaculately clean, good bathroom.

A couple of con's:
Decor as peviously stated. The bed, billed as super luxury, and my husband certainly had a good night's sleep. But for some reason the two halves were completely different? Mine being very soft.

The location looked wonderful, and whilst ours was just a few hours stop over, I think this could be a great place to dwell for a while, whilst exploring the area.

Just Amazing. Very close to the lake and the mountains, surrounded by wonderful countrysides and woods, this lovely farmhouse has been recently renovated and now offers beautiflul spacious yet very comfortable and cozy rooms decorated in pure "country style".
Marjie and Fiorenzo are the perfect hosts. Silence, peace, style and nature are the ingredients of the recipe called "Cascina Incocco".
Breakfast will surprise you with a great variety of genuine and tasteful food.
Both my girlfriend and me were totally enthusiastic and ... simply didn't want to leave!
