Our 1902 farmhouse has been lovingly restored and has two guest rooms on the second floor, each with their own bathroom. The furniture is antique but the mattresses, duvets and amenities are comfortable and modern! Our tea and coffee tray includes organic herbal teas from local mountain herbs.

The Azalea Room has a double bed which can be separated into two singles, whereas the Acacia Room has a king size bed plus a single. In each of the rooms an additional child's bed or single bed can be added on request (guests under 15 only in the additional bed). Guests may choose Dinner, Bed and Breakfast orBed and Breakfast only (or a combination of the two). We use our own fruit and vegetables where possible, and other top quality ingredients come from local ("0 km"), organic and/or fair trade producers. We also specialise in Gluten Free cooking (producing the same delicious seasonal dishes we offer everyone, just with no gluten). Any special dietary requirements (coeliacs, vegetarians, allergies to...), or even simple preferences/dislikes, should be notified as soon as possible after booking, so we can design the perfect menu for you.

If fitness is your thing, guests can enjoy running down to the Percorso Vita (Open Air fitness/exercise circuit) in the public Monte Solivo woods, or borrow mats, weights, rebounder and other equipment we have here at Cascina Cesarina. In the pool area we also have a regular basketball hoop with backboard for honing your skills.

At the other end of the spectrum, lazy days by the pool can be enjoyed dozing in the hammocks or cooking up a barbecue for lunch or dinner.

Cascina Cesarina is a haven of peace, where the only sounds are birdsong and the cries of various animals in the neighbouring wildlife park (La Torbiera), Yet within a few minutes' drive you can reach both the eastern and the western shores of Lake Maggiore, with the splendid Borromeo Islands including IsolaBella and Isola Madre, and just 30 minutes away is picture-perfect Lake Orta, with its World Heritage Site Sacro Monte, its quaint cobbled streets and well-preserved buildings, plus the atmospheric island of St. Giulio itself. For city-lovers, the motorway is just 3 km away and from there you can get to Milan in 40 minutes (or 1 hour by train). Milan Malpensa airport is just 25 minutes' easy, totally traffic-free drive away.

For those who love the countryside, there are countless walking, trekking and bicycle routes in the surrounding area, in the Parco del Ticino and around Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta, as well as the more remote and wild Valgrande park.

For thrill-seekers, there is a Zipline you can ride alone or in tandem, various summer water and adventure parks, as well as all water sports on Lake Maggiore. There are also a go-kart track and a riding school in Borgo Ticino.

Children love the Safari Park in Pombia, just 10 minutes away, which also has an aquarium, falconry and equestrian displays and a funfair, and guests of all ages enjoy visiting the Rocca di Angera castle with its splendid frescoed walls, amazing collection of antique dolls and princes' toys from centuries gone by, as well as the 360° views from the top of the tower.

There is so much to do and see here, just tell us your tastes and we can point you towards.. classical music festivals, local food festivals, wine festivals or vineyard tours, sports, World War II partisan hideouts, motor sports...or shop till you drop in several outlets, from a delicious local chocolate factory to the mega-shopping centres with all top Brand names at knockdown prices, to the local street markets, in a different town each day of the week...
Our usual breakfast has a choice of cereals, home made brown bread or toast, white bread or toast, with butter and home made jam, marmalades, honey and Marmite; home made cake or tart or pastries or yogurt, fresh fruit. Fruit juice plus tea or herbal tea or organic coffee, milk or hot chocolate.

We felt at home. Breakfast and dinner was delicious, well cooked and in good quantity. Our child couldn't be happier to enjoy a gluten-free meal. Big thanks to Franco for the wine tasting. And to Lorraine for chatting with us in Spanish.
stayed from 02/15/2019 to 02/17/2019
The answer from the host:
Thank you for your kind words. We loved meeting your family and enjoyed the challenge of stimulating your younger child to enjoy the gluten-free meals we prepared for you - and the satisfaction of seeing that everyone else appreciated the quinoa, maize and pumpkin moulds with mushroom sauce, as well as gluten-free pasta with home-grown tomato and ricotta sauce, and plenty more dishes with home-grown fruit and vegetable ingredients. Glad you appreciated Franco's choice of Prosecco and different Piedmontese red wines to accompany them. We look forward to seeing you again in the summer, when the palaces and gardens on the lakes are all open to visitors, and the swimming pool awaits you for a refreshing dip after a day's touring. Our dog Juno looks forward to playing with the children again, too!

Très agréable demeure dans un cadre paisible, calme et reposant. Les propriétaires vous accueillent avec beaucoup de chaleur et de sympathie. J'ai notamment apprécié la prise du repas avec eux et les bon produits locaux. Une adresse que je conseille vraiment.

Mio marito, mio figlio ed io ci siamo trovati benissimo in questa deliziosa cascina immersa nei boschi, anche grazie all'accoglienza di Lorraine e di suo marito, ospiti perfetti per cortesia e disponibilità, che ci hanno intrattenuti con conversazioni intelligenti, interessanti e ricche di spirito! Abbiamo fatto una cena abbondante e saporita così come la colazione, senza alcuna preoccupazione per la dieta senza glutine necessaria a nostro figlio, grazie all'attenzione ed alla rigorosa preparazione di Lorraine.
stayed from 05/11/2019 to 05/12/2019
The answer from the host:
Vi ringrazio delle parole di apprezzamento. Anche per noi è un piacere ospitare persone che condividono la nostra visione dell'ospitalità, e che amano la cucina veramente casalinga, con uso di molti prodotti nostri, e ingredienti di qualità, biologici e/o a km zero e/o proveniente dai circuiti equo solidali. Per l'ulteriore sicurezza di chi ha bisogno di cucina senza glutine, facciamo per tutti gli stessi piatti, spesso con ingredienti ricercati proprio perché il pasto del celiaco sia un piacere non un momento di ansia. Peccato che abbiate potuto fermarvi solamente una notte - vi aspettiamo ancora per condividere ricette gustose, dritte sui posti più belle da visitare e scambiarci ancora qualche chiacchiera con un buon bicchiere di vino in mano!

Ci siamo fermati solo una notte ma è stato un tempo sufficiente per apprezzare la gradevole e familiare accoglienza di Lorraine e Carlo e percepire da subito una vocazione all'ospitalità che ti fa sentire immediatamente fra amici. La struttura è in mezzo al verde e sa immediatamente di casa. La stanza è ben arredata con mobili d'epoca ed è tutto funzionale e accogliente. Ottima la colazione, con pane fatto in casa e marmellate anch'esse artigianali. Torneremo volentieri.
stayed from 02/01/2019 to 02/02/2019
The answer from the host:
Grazie delle sue parole gentili. Anche per noi è stato un piacere avere degli ospiti non solo simpatici, ma anche viaggiatori esperti che prediligono l'ospitalità rurale, il calore umano e la cucina genuina agli alberghi anonimi. Che bello poi che il castagnaccio proposto per la colazione sia uno dei suoi dolci preferiti, ricordo d'infanzia come lo è per mio marito! Aspettiamo con piacere una vostra visita più lunga, magari con la bella stagione, per farvi conoscere altri luoghi splendidi che il suo occhio d'artista apprezzerà senz'altro, e per farci ancora qualche bella chiacchierata mentre assaggiate i prodotti dei nostri orti, campi e boschi... arrivederci, quindi!

Il posto si trova fuori casini della vita di oggi, la Signora Loraine, molto carina ha consigliato i posti da visitare, la loro famiglia sono sostenitori di uno stile di vita sano - il burro comprano dai contadini, la marmellata fanno a casa, in poche parole bellissima gente!
stayed from 01/09/2019 to 01/11/2019
The answer from the host:
La ringrazio delle sue belle parole. Siamo contenti di averle saputo consigliare i posti giusti da visitare in questa parte d'Italia che non conosceva. Infatti, il Lago d'Orta ed il Lago Maggior l'hanno così incantata che è tornata tardissimo dai suoi giri turistici. Come promesso, alla sua prossima visita, le consiglieremo ancora dei posti nuovi da visitare (e da fine marzo è bellissimo visitare i palazzi e giardini delle Isole Borromee e dintorni), con calma, in maniera da poter rientrare e gustarsi qualche cena genuina, oltre alle colazioni che già conosce. L'aspettiamo con piacere, magari anche con la famiglia la prossima volta!

The answer from the host:
È stato un piacere ospitarvi con la vostra simpaticissima figlia, siamo contenti che abbiate apprezzato anche la nostra cucina e vi aspettiamo nuovamente, magari nella stagione calda, per farvi conoscere i tanti bei posti per turismo e passeggiate, e per farvi assaggiare i nostri piatti estivi.

Incantevole, ottima soluzione; gestione disponibilissima e molto accogliente, ambiente d'altri tempi, colazione abbondante, camera pulita e funzionale. Grande attenzione per le intolleranze alimentari (celiachia), logisticamente perfetta per escursioni in diverse località (lago maggiore, lago d'Orta, zoo safari Pombia etc).

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
