We had a one night layover in Milan Malpensa and opted to stay close to the airport rather than try and make the trek into Milan. Located just 8 miles from the airport in charming Sesto Calende, we found we had made a wonderful choice. The hotel is beautiful with all the charm of a B&B. All of the staff was friendly and very accommodating. Grabbed a Spritz at the hotel bar and then went to settle into our room. Our room was cozy but the balcony overlooking the gardens and river really made the experience perfect. Take a walk along the river into Sesto Calende, as we did, and you won't be disappointed. Swans swim along the river, and the villa gardens along the walk are stunning. We watched the sunset over the mountains before returning to the hotel for a late dinner. Simona treated us like family, bringing food (wonderful risotto) and wine to our romantic table. Despite a slight language barrier (Simona's English was much better than our Italian) we enjoyed engaging conversation and time on the back terrace. Really felt like staying with old friends. Simona arranged our taxi for the following morning, which was perfect after enjoying a very yummy complimentary breakfast. Our only regret is that this was our last night in Italy (after 10 days in Positano & Rome) and we didn't have more time to stay here and explore. We will definitely return someday and Hotel Del Parco is where we will stay. Peaceful, romantic, simply beautiful. Thank you again Simona.
