Staying at B&B Villa Margherita was a wonderful experience. This is mainly due to our host Raffael who overcame the language barrier and made a wonderful connection based on his human pleasantness. The Villa and garden has a historic quality. I hope that Raffael will continue maintaining this wonderful place.

Lovely villa in the park, away from the street and from the traffic noise! It feels enchanted to find all the charm of the residence of the beginning twentieth century. Our room had a beautiful terrace, shame we were in winter otherwise we would have been in the evening to drink and to relax. The interior is furnished with antique furniture really. Beautiful ceramic tiles of the fireplace lounge. Raffaelo was really kind and helpful in giving us directions about what to visit in the winter. Shame on Lake Maggiore's major attractions are closed until next spring! We recommend dinner Isola dei Pescatori with boat made available by the owner of the restaurant who advised Raffaelo there. Really romantic.

Excellent two night stay at Villa Margherita. Lovely old house with a beautiful garden. Very comfortable room, although the floors and bed were very squeaky. Good breakfast. Two excellent restaurants (a pizzeria and a fish restaurant) a few minutes walk away. Raffaello was an excellent host. Overall a fantastic B&B - I would recommended it very highly.

Verwunschene Villa, mit einem wunderschönen Garten, in dem bei schönem Wetter gefrühstückt wird. Raffaelo, der Betreiber, serviert den allerbesten Kaffee und die Früchte des Obstalates kommen aus eigenem Garten. Das Haus hat die perfekte Lage nur wenige Schritte zum kleinen Strand und nah zu den guten Restaurants des schönen Örtchens Lesa. Die Villa Margherita ist ein Märchenschloß und bietet absolute Erholung.

Die Villa Margherita ist ein Kleinod abseits des touristischen Trubel in dem kleinen typischen italienischen Ort Lesa nicht weit von dem kleinen öffentlichen Strand am Lago Maggiore gelegen. Besonders reizvoll ist das Frühstück im romantischen Garten, der liebevoll von Rafael gepflegt wird. Er gab uns viele Tipps für Wanderungen im beeindruckenden Hinterland des Mottarone und zum Ortasee und organisierte ein wirklich romantisches Abendessen auf der Insel Pescatori mit einer nächtlichen Rundfahrt auf dem Lago. Er hatte viel über sein geschichtsträchtiges Elternhaus (auf deutsch) zu erzählen. Wer etwas besonderes sucht, ist hier sehr gut aufgehoben. Vielen Dank, lieber Rafael.

Ho prenotato 2 notti, ma alla fine siamo scappati dopo la prima! Villa e camera d'epoca/vintage 60', colazione solo dolce, pane burro e marmellata una fettina di torta e basta. Bagno in camera minuscolo con vasca a sedile per "neonati" senza tenda e parzialmente scrostata. La prima notte in bagno ho trovato un paio di cimici, ma dato il clima umido autunnale e la vicinanza al lago ho reputato fosse quasi normale. L'indomani al pomeriggio la camera era invasa, tende e finestre piene, ronzavano tipo elicotteri. Abbiamo chiamato il gestore e questi ha iniziato a dire che quella camera ha quel problema (le cimici!), che dei turisti tedeschi si erano "aggiustati da soli" e che al mattino aveva dato l'insetticida su finestre e tende. Peccato che al nostro rientro dopo pranzo non ci abbia avvisato della spruzzata! Da sconsigliare assolutamente.
stayed from 09/30/2016 to 10/02/2016
The answer from the host:
Cara signora, il problema relativo alla invasione delle cimici asiatiche è purtroppo di pubblico dominio a causa delle anomalie climatiche che stiamo vivendo: basta leggere le notizie in merito riportate su tutti i media in queste settimane autunnali. Nonostante questo le sono venuto incontro cercando, in sua assenza, di provvedere, intervento che lei però non ha gradito (la cosiddetta spruzzata di insetticida). Se lei si è spaventata così tanto da dover anticipare di una notte la sua partenza non potevo certamente impedirglielo, anzi, le sono venuto incontro scontandole il prezzo del pernottamento e non facendole pagare, come era nel mio diritto, la camera per la notte successiva che lei aveva comunque prenotato. E non solo: ho accettato la sua prenotazione nonostante che lei non abbia voluto o saputo utilizzare il servizio PayPal per l'anticipo della caparra dandole quindi la mia fiducia.; le ho anche messo a disposizione la camera matrimoniale più grande con terrazza, allo stesso prezzo, ma lei ha deciso di andarsene e addirittura non voleva pagare il pernottamento già effettuato. Inutile dire che il prezzo che lei ha pagato (euro 70,00) per un pernottamento nella nostra villa è più che adeguato al sevizio offerto e alla colazione che prevede il servizio al tavolo con caffè della moka, pane fresco e non confezionato, marmellata, macedonia di frutta fresca secondo la stagione o dolce. Altri extra li poteva comunque tranquillamente richiedere e, se nelle mie possibilità, volentieri glieli avrei offerti. Infine le ricordo che proprio la autenticità della villa è una delle caratteristiche più apprezzate dagli ospiti: se lei voleva poteva scegliere tranquillamente la camera con bagno più grande come aveva avuto modo di vedere sul nostro sito, che era disponibile in quel periodo.

Ho trascorso due giorni favolosi sul Lago Maggiore con mia madre in questa antica villa. Ho trovato un refrigerio nelle caldissime giornate di fine agosto nel parco dove è piacevolissimo fare colazione e trascorrere alcune ore pomeridiane. In questa villa non ci sono i condizionatori è meno male. Prima di partire mia madre aveva qualche dubbio e invece siamo rimaste stupite di quanto le spesse mura della struttura e il parco ombreggiato favoriscono una temperatura ideale nell'ambiente della casa. La camera con terrazzo è veramente bella, e il bagno ristrutturato recentissimo ed è pulito. La posizione è comoda vicinissima alla spiaggia pubblica tranquilla e lontana dalla strada costiera. Consiglio almeno una volta di prendere il bus di linea fino a Verbania, così avrete più possibilità di ammirare il paesaggio. Ma la ciliegina sulla torta è stata la cena sull'isola dei pescatori da Maria Pia al ristorante " La Peschiera" consigliato dal proprietario del B&B Raffaelo. Ci tornerò ancora.

The villa, Built by the Cabella family in Genoa, belongs to the Visentini family since 1951.

His mother Margherita and dad Giovanni began the reception activities of the many tourists who after the war crowded the banks of Lake Maggiore with a series of renovations and improvements to the property to make it more welcoming and suitable to the needs of travelers.

Since 2002 Raffaelo continues the reception activities with renewed commitment trying to keep intact the charm of the lake dwelling of the twentieth century and the originality of the villa and its furnishings. Brother Alfredo and his wife Tina help him in the summer.

Raffaelo is also experienced architect in the topics of architectural restoration of particular historical and artistic value of goods (restoration of the Church of San Vittore Isola dei Pescatori, the Oratory of Madonna della Neve in Otra, Parrocchia di San Martino a Lesa).
