Giulio, Villa Taranto, Arona, Stresa, Verbania, the near Switzerland…).

At disposal of our guests there are two pleasant and comfortable rooms. They have private entrance and own bathroom with wide shower and hairdryer, kettle with choice of teas, minibar, wi-fi, heating.

In the morning you will have breakfast on the wonderful lake_ and mountain_view balcony or in our breakfast room.

A lakes view lawn in the middle of the wood and the quietness of nature waits for you for a nice rest in every moment of the day. The garden has deck-chairs, table and chairs, BBQ, children's playground.

Our warm family atmosphere together with discreet and attentive hospitality are our best way to welcome you: see you soon!

Very nice hosts, good breakfast. Location ideal between National park Val Grande and West coast of Lagio Maggiore. Also the little village of Mergozzo is quite nice with some little streets and a some restaurants at the lake side.

Das B&B il picchio ist eine wahre Ruhe-Oase. Die herzliche Gastgeberin Maurizia zaubert täglich ein wunderbares Frühstück auf den Balkontisch. Mit Blick auf die Seen Mergozzo und Maggiore kann man allerlei Leckereien sowie die ersten Sonnenstrahlen genießen und bekommt von Frau Maurizia neben köstlicher selbstgemachter Marmelade auch hilfreiche Tipps geliefert. Man hat die Qual der Wahl: Schwimmen im sauberen Lago di Mergozzo, bummeln am nahen Lago Maggiore oder wandern im wilden Nationalpark Val Grande. Oder einfach entspannen im großen Garten. Ein toller Ort um Energie zu tanken!

Siamo stati più di una volta sul lago di Mergozzo, ma al B&B il Picchio ci siamo trovati meglio che a casa. È un posto incantevole da dove si gode di una stupenda vista su tutto il lago. I gestori sono bravissimi e molto cortesi, anche la nostra piccola cagnolina si è trovata bene, la colazione. Meglio provare per credere! Eccellente.
