Giardini Botanici dell'Isola Bella
Chiesa Collegiata di San Leonardo
Extremely friendly and helpful, great breakfast and close to town, a short drive down the hill to Stresa.
This was a wonderful family-run B&B in the hills behind Stresa. Massimo, the owner, was the perfect host and he even came to collect us from Stresa centre after we got lost trying to find our way to him. The room upstairs is self-contained and has a nice en-suite bathroom which the other 2 rooms do not. Breakfast on the outside terrace was lovely although fresh juices would have been nice. Overall, the ambience was very relaxing away from all the crowds but careful if you attempt to walk down to Stresa and back - the roads are very narrow and winding! The B&B was difficult to find - even with sat nav. Make sure you get very detailed location instructions beforehand or else you will drive right past it (several times) and may get hopelessly lost. Minor complaint is that there is no shower curtain and you end up sitting in the bath but, frankly, we couldn't care less given the wonderful setting.
