We have beautiful memories of our stay at Lake Maggiore. Penny and David are the perfect hosts. They are so welcoming, warm and lovely! Their local knowledge is priceless and they were always on hand to help in anyway they could. Their home is delightful with a lovely garden and their breakfasts are delicious. Their two dogs, Bess and Buddy, are very much part of the family and made us feel very welcome too. We hope to return one day soon!
It was our third stay at this romantically situated B&B, so we knew what to expect. We were certainly not disappointed: we were received as old friends; the owners were very helpful in finding a rustic restaurant.
We spent such an amazing time with David, Penny, Bess and Budy. They are great host : welcoming, smiling, very available. They always gave us great advice to visit the region. Breakfast was excellent, especially home made fruit salad. The view from the balcony was amazing and their garden is really beautiful. Bess and budy are very cute and well trained. Thank you so much for everything ! Manon & Ugo
Many beautiful memories of the "Casa del Giardiniere in Stropino" will stay with us. We really enjoyed being guests of Penny and David! Nice and quiet room, inviting environment, cozy restaurant next door, interesting conversations with the hosts and every morning a breakfast of the finest. We can hardly imagine that someone here does not feel well! Important note: We had problems finding the place because our GPS had not yet saved the current street name. We recommend that you contact the hosts if the GPS does not find the "Via Circonvallazione".
My review doesn’t seem to have gone through that I wrote about my trip to a David and Penny’s Bed and Breakfast last June! Their place is very beautiful in a great location set above the town of Stresa in Lake Maggiore. Very handy access to and from the airport and to many local sights. David and Penny were so accommodating and friendly giving us lots of help about the local area to make the most out of our time there. The dogs Buddy and Bess were an extra treat which provided us with much entertainment. Breakfast was superb with so many extra touches and using local produce! Hope to return in the future!
