Reviewed June 6, 2013

Stayed here for 2 days at the end of a 4 week Europe holiday. Awesome. Only 3 rooms in a 130 year old villa overlooking the lake (up the hill a little way). Huge room. Vaulted ceiling. Our host, Cinzia, was most helpful. The accommodation matched a wonderful environment. A place to rest, and gather some final memories before heading home. We had a hire car, and while the address seemed complicated, the GPS got us easily to the front door. We drove a bit around the area, and think that by luck we were in the best village (Laveno). We would happily stay there again.

Cinzia our hostess was so helpful. She picked us up from the train station and cooked us
breakfast every morning and then took us to a special train station that we did not know about so that we would get to Malpensa Airport on train. She went out of her way to help us.
Her beautiful heritage home was the highlight of the stay and we felt very welcome. It was
only a short walk to the town from her house. Be sure to use the chair lift as soon as you arrive.
We missed out because it closes at 6pm and the next day the weather was terrible for the view.

Room Tip: Our room was on the bottom floor but had a view of the lake.

The B&B:
We chose Villa Clementina for our 6 night stay by lake Maggiore and we don't regret it a minute. The signora who runs the B&B is extremely friendly and helpful, and she really cares for her guests and wants to help them maximizing their Lago Maggiore experience. AND she speaks excellent english, which is not easily found here. We had the "Azzurro" room which had a double bed and ensuite bathroom (shower). Although the rooms was not overly spacey it was clean and covered our needs. The only thing we found on the negative side was the bed, which we found a bit too hard, but that is obvoiusly a subjective judgement.

The town:
Laveno may not be the obvious choice for a Maggiore holiday, but we found it a pleasant, quiet location and a nice base for exploring the area. We travelled by train and bus - i.e without a car - and the trains connections to and from Milan are quite good with a direct route from Malpensa. From Laveno there is a ferry (cars allowed) to Intra, which has connections to other parts of the lake such as Stresa and the Borromean islands. The ferry runs about once an hour from early morning to midnight. We had thought about doing the Lago Maggiore Express tour during our stay (boats on the lake combined with the Centovalli railway), but listening to other guests we decided to leave it for another time as we were told that being based in Laveno it was quite hectic to manage the whole trip in one day. It is definately doable, but according to the guests it was a bit stressful taking care that the last connectrion to Intra was not missed. From what we've heard we think it's easier to do this trip being based further north along the lake with more connections to choose from.

The overall impression from Villa Clementina is very postive and we highly recommend others to stay at this nice B&B.

What a beautiful place! Combined with a very warm welcome from the owner and great hospitality, this makes an excellent base for enjoying Lake Maggiore and the islands.

We had a spacious, clean room with a big comfy bed and amazing high ceilings. A cot was set up for our baby based on our emailed request - no fuss, no bother!

Really good value and a good location if you don't mind a stroll down the hill via the old town. All in all, we are delighted!

The B&B owner Cinzia made our stay a very pleasurable experience. Especially her ideas for what to see and do around Lago Maggiore and her restaurant recommendations were really helpful. Her suggestion to go to the a bid hidden away Lago d'Orta and the town Orta turned out to be a wonderful day trip (with the best tiramisu ice cream we ever had).
A lovely family-run place where you'll get a lot of attention and find great hospitality.

P.S.: Her husband was also a wonderful host when Cinzia couldn't be there one morning.

Our stay at Villa Clementina can only be described as enchanting. From the moment she picked us up at the train station until the time she dropped us off 4 days later, Cinzia enveloped us with care and attention. Without being obtrusive, she provided us with valuable information about the surrounding area, local honey for my scratchy throat, and an extra bed for an unexpected visit from a grandchild. For what it is worth, the night the five-year-old spent at the villa was the only night of our trip that he slept through the night...and he was enthralled by the 19th century paintings on the ceilings. We found the villa to be very clean and comfortable, the bathrooms modern, the antique family furniture beautiful, the view of the mountains and lake from the garden filled with ancient plants breathtaking AND restful, and the local food Cinzia served for breakfast delicious. For us, her English was easily understandable and she tolerated our attempts at Italian with good humor. She made us feel welcome and included when other guests were conversing in Italian. Her directions and insights into the Milan Metro helped 4 adults and 1 five-year-old to make it from one train station to another within our 35 minute time.
Our time at Villa Clementina was a gift. Cinzia and her peaceful home are a treasure.
