Lets be clear about this, if you are looking for all the so called luxuries of a 'hotel' this is not the place for you. However if you do stay in a hotel you would miss the personal friendly service which you will find here. The room was not large, but was clean and it did overlook the lake and after all you only sleep there! We only stayed two nights and would have loved to have stayed longer. We arrived in Meina after a long drive from Dijon in France, Andrea made us feel relaxed and at home. Our second day was our wedding anniversary. At breakfast Andrea appeared with a traditional Italian cake to celebrate which we shared with him and the other guests. That evening with no fuss but lots of enthusiasm, Andrea organised a taxi for us and a table at a superb restaurant in Arona, which was a memorable experience all of its own.
Parking is limited to one space in the gated yard, we had to park just around the corner, but this proved trouble free even if the spaces were a little tight. If you do travel by car, I'd avoid a large SUV in the tight little streets though!
We would definitely stay at Villanuvola again, indeed we would look forward to another visit.
