Hey from Giorgia

Member since September 2018 | 12,733 hits
The "Il Folletto del lago" B&B is run by Giorgia, her husband Andrea and their little helper Leo, their baby.

The idea to undertake this activity was born from the desire to spend more time with the family and for this they have restructured the ground floor of their own home, using it as a bed and breakfast, thus combining work and housing.

Moreover, being sociable and sunny, they love being able to know and host different people in their home, while guaranteeing privacy and independence.

The answer from the host:
Thank you very much Mireille for your review, we just wanted to underline that as regards parking, already at the booking stage, it is specified that the spaces are present exclusively on public roads while for breakfast, we are sorry that you did not "find" the three types of bread, placed near the bread toaster, which we offer to our guests! Best wishes !

Wij werden vriendelijk ontvangen door Andrea, hij stond ons op straat op te wachten. Wij verbleven in het Gastenverblijf op een kleine afstand van de B&B, er was een garage waar we onze auto in Konden zetten. Vanuit dd garage werd onze bagage met de lift naar boven gebracht echt geweldig. Eenmaal in het gastenverblijf nam Andreas alle tijd om ons alles in de woning uit te leggen. Vanwege Corona is er geen uitgebreid ontbijt in de B&B maar kregen we vouchers voor een ontbijt in het dorp (erg netjes) Wij zouden deze B&B sterk aan willen bevelen en keren zelf zeker terug Prachtige plek op een mooie locatie bij super lieve mensen Een dikke 10

We want to express how great we found this B&B to be so charming and welcoming. The room was amazing with everything so well designed. The breakfast was superb and the owners always present at your service. They are a very nice couple with their son. We recommend anyone passing by that area and that need a B&B to look them up, you'll never regret.

Je ne commenterais pas les chambre mais l’appartement qu’ils loue a quelque mètre de la maison principal, qui est très bien avec le garage pour la voiture, l’appartement est très bien, grande chambre un salon de bonne taille et une grande salle de bain. Les propriétaires sont vraiment très sympa, Giorgia a pris le temps de nous indiquer les chose à faire dans le coin les meilleurs restaurant Et nous répondez sur WhatsApp pour toute information. Les hôtes sont vraiment au top! Le logement se situe un peu sur les hauteurs de stresa dans un petit village très sympathique avec son bar très vivant à toute heure un vrai lieu de vie. Les hôtes nous avais laisser de quoi faire le petit déjeuner nous avais fourni plein de gâteau, pain de mie biscotte etc etc...et remplis le frigo de yaourt jambon et jus de fruits et un Ticket par personne pour chaque jour pour allez manger un croissant et boire un café ou cappuccino au bar du village qui se situe à 30 seconde à pieds! Le village est bien situer pour descendre au lac et vraiment pas loin en voiture. Super adresse je ne regrette pas du tout! Merci à Giorgia et Andrea.

Dal momento della prenotazione al momento di lasciare la struttura il titolare Andrea è sempre stato cortese, disponibile e accogliente. La struttura è molto bella, le stanze arredate con gusto e dotate di ogni comfort, pulite e spaziose. Ottima e abbondante colazione. La cortesia, simpatia e gentilezza del proprietario sono un motivo in più per scegliere questo bellissimo b&b. Grazie!

Abbiamo scelto questo posto incantevole per trascorrere due giorni in tranquillità e per scoprire le meraviglie del Lago Maggiore, devo dire che abbiamo decisamente fatto centro! La struttura è bellissima e molto vicina al centro di Stresa e alle principali attrazioni del posto, Andrea che ci ha accolto con gentilezza ed un gran sorriso, ci ha fatto sentire a casa da subito. La stanza è un gioiello di eleganza ed accoglienza perfettamente in linea con il resto della struttura, piccola ma curata nel dettaglio, pulita e dotata di ogni comfort. All’esterno nella bella stagione un idromassaggio ed una zona relax con sdraio ed un grazioso dehor, la mattina la colazione servita in camera con prodotti freschi e un buffet (in camera!) con qualsiasi cosa si possa desiderare. All’arrivo aperitivo di benvenuto, bollitore con the e tisane ed un piccolo frigobar molto fornito… Cosa chiedere di piu? Viziati e coccolati. Se volete visitare il Lago Maggiore non potete non riposare in questo incantevole angolo di paradiso.

Giorgia e Andrea sono due persone speciali, cordiali e accoglienti e fanno di tutto per farti sentire a tuo agio nel loro bellissimo B&B. Molto curato fin nei minimi dettagli, tranquillo e accogliente. Consiglio caldamente tutti coloro che vogliono passare qualche giorno sul lago maggiore a fermarsi da loro. mariateresa

Siamo stati ospiti del Folletto del Lago per una settimana, in pratica il nostro viaggio di nozze! Giorgia e Andrea, coppia magnifica di gestori e persone squisite sotto ogni punto di vista. Purtroppo la situazione attuale non ha aiutato loro nell'offrire tutto ciò che avrebbero voluto: dalla colazione a buffet alla vasca idromassaggi e per finire la sauna ma, pur rispettando le regole, ci hanno coccolati dal nostro arrivo fino alla partenza tanto che abbiamo prenotato per il prossimo mese! Grazie ancora di tutto e un abbraccio al piccolo Leo Buona Vita Alfredo e Doriana
