    As is often the case with accommodation at the Italian lakes, there is no getting away from the road and its noise. It's the only one round the lake and all traffic uses it. The railway line is close too so the outstanding view from La Sorgente is inevitably affected by the aural experience.

    The view from La Sorgente overlooking the Borromean islands is amazing. The owner, Francesca, is delightful. Open and friendly but not pushy, she communicates her enjoyment of this lovely area. Her restaurant recommendations are splendid and she is a mine of information on places and trips.

    Car spot is a little tight coming off the bend of the main road..something to be wary of but nothing that can be helped. Wifi is a little in and out but nothing major.

    Francesca was one of the most hospitable hosts we've stayed with, she was always willing to provide tips and assistance. Nothing was an issue for her. She has great local knowledge and her english is really fluent. Stay here while her and her husband are still hosting! The room had a wonderful view of the lake with Stresa and Baveno only 5-10 min drives away. Breakfast was homemade with tea and coffee always available.

    Francesca (from Assisi) is a very friendly hostes who has tuns of valuable (being a local) sugesstions to offer. The view from the rooms is hard to beat. We had a great time there, thank you Francesca.

    Because of speed of traffic on the road, entry to and exit from the parking area was a bit problematic. Not the fault of La Sorgente.

    Francesca’s breakfasts are superb and she is a mine of information. The view from our balcony was magnificent.

    My Fiancé an I have a couple of tickets to Malpensa and no place to go. We decided to explore the Maggiore lake and we found this place that seemed to have a breathtaking view from the rooms. Well, everybody could take a good picture, so we didn't expect that much. Then we arrived and once opened the window we stopped breathing for a couple of minutes, with the mouth open in a slow motion "WOW". The landscape is incredible. The owners were if possible even better, they guided us in our 3 days trip with precious suggestions, making for us possible to discover great places not mentioned in any tourist guide. If you add to this recipe other ingredients like home-made cakes (apple and chocolate) for breakfast, and a the lovely atmosphere created by Sissy and Ricky (the owners), the result was just fabulous. We're looking forward to back in spring.
