In Lesa, on the hills overlooking Lake Maggiore, stands B&B La Torretta; it was built in 1542 and was once a watchtower with a dovecote. It is said locally that, from this tower someone (perhaps Pietro, the soldier who wrote the fresco on the house wall) observed the wide stretch of the lake to spy on commercial traffic and hence could send messages with pigeons at the nearest customs to collect the duty on the goods.

La Torretta is a corner of paradise, it enjoys an enviable microclimate thanks to the excellent position. Since year 700 the area was a favorite destination for vacationing on the lake, among green hills and orchards.

Today, after renovations and extensions, it has become the home of Sara and Michele and of their guests.

In 2007 the building was completely renovated respecting the original architecture and energy-saving criteria.

From the entire building, immersed in an enchanting atmosphere, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the lake which is just 2 km away: from the cantilevered terraces the view sweeps both shores of Lake Maggiore and the plain of Lesa below. In the morning you will be awakened by the singing of birds or that of our roosters.

In 2014 B&B La Torretta expanded and two new rooms were built that sum up to the initial one in the dovecote tower. Both the restoration measures and the new building have taken full account of the environmental / ecological and energy saving criteria. Solar panels, heat pumps, insulation, soundproofing and an innovative heating system can reduce emissions to a minimum.

The land of about 5, 000 square meters, exposed to the sun from dawn to dusk is composed of a richly planted terraced garden, crossed by a small stream and a paddocks for the two purebred Arabian horses.

Guests are reserved three large panoramic rooms overlooking the lake, bright and quiet with a large balcony or terrace, separate entrance, each one with a private bathroom with large shower. The two new rooms have an equipped kitchens and air conditioning. In the garden there is a dedicated space for guests only.

Ajouter au niveau des tarifs qu’ils sont plus élevés en saison. Il est écrit 195€ pour 3 nuits sur la résa, j’ai payé 225 €. Le propriétaire me l’a expliqué mais il serait bien que les prix soient à jour sur le site.

Accès du logement difficile. Chambre spacieuse avec terrasse vue lac, au calme. Peu de contact avec le propriétaire et petit déjeuner à disposition dans la chambre, ne correspond pas vraiment à un B&B!

Das Turmzimmer ist klein und romantisch, Balkon mit grandiosem See-Blick. Zimmer sehr hellhörig (man hört jedes Wort der Vermieter, Husten des Vermieters und Bellen des Hundes). Der nutzbare Gartenanteil ist sehr klein, der große Garten mit Liegestühlen usw. auf den Fotos ist NICHT für Gäste, sondern für die beiden Boxer-Hunde der Vermieter reserviert. Das Frühstück muß man selbst zubereiten, besteht aus Toast, abgepackten Croissants, Marmelade u. abgepacktem Schinken, alles wird nur auf Anfrage wieder aufgefüllt (3 Tage lang hatten wir nichts zum Frühstück erhalten). Die Aufmerksamkeit der Vermieter läßt also Wünsche offen, man kommt sich als Bittsteller vor. Das Frühstück ist laut Vermieterin landestypisch. Der Balkon hat KEINE Sitzmöbel oder Tisch (z. B. für Frühstück). Für anspruchslose Übernachtung geeignet, mehr darf man aber auch nicht erwarten.

Posto fantastico, con vista mozzafiato. Il proprietario gentilissimo! Accoglienza familiare e discreta le camere sono molto belle. Unica piccolissima pecca la colazione, che va preparata in autonomia (dotazione in camera) però ci tornerei sicuramente!

Premetto che non sono un abituè dei B&B frequentando più abitualmente le strutture alberghiere. La struttura La Torretta si trova sulla collina di Lesa ed è un bel casolare che offre solo poche sistemazioni agli ospiti (credo solo 3 o 4), con molto verde intorno ed animali che allietano la presenza (cavalli, galline e galli, cani). Siamo stati ospiti 5 notti nella camera denominata il Gufo: spaziosa, discretamente arredata con arredo nuovo e tendente al design, un angolo cottura utile, un bel bagno grande con doccia. La vista è spettacolare sul lago, con una finestra a tutta parete che apre su un terrazzo comodo per prendere il sole o fare colazione di fronte ad una vista spettacolare come detto. I proprietari Michele e Sara sono gentili ed educati e disponibili se occorre qualcosa. Inoltre non invadenti e riservati. Questa cosa noi l'abbiamo apprezzata molto anche se viene a mancare un po' di quella familiarità che (almeno così ci dicono) essere presente nei B&B. Ma a noi andava bene così. Il punteggio di cui sopra però è stato penalizzato da qualche nota un po' meno positiva. Quando siamo arrivati abbiamo trovato la stanza in ordine ma non troppo pulita: polvere un po' troppo presente sia a terra (e non solo polvere) che sugli arredi e nei cassetti e nel bagno. La colazione fornita consisteva di un pacchettino di affettati preconfezionati, una confezione di pan carre, una bottiglia di latte, due yogurt, delle scatolette monoporzione di marmellata, un po' di frutta che è stata nuovamente ricostituita, come colazione, solo dopo 3 giorni. Devo comunque dire che il Sig. Michele è stato molto gentile da rifornirci ogni 2 giorni, di alcune fette di uno squisito ciambellone fatto in casa. Però sinceramente mi aspettavo di meglio e un po' meno industrializzato. La signora Sara quando siamo partiti ci ha regalato un piccolo sacchetto con dei pomodori di produzione propria ed odori (prezzemolo), cosa che ci ha fatto piacere ed abbiamo gradito. In complesso esprimo un giudizio positivo seppur credo che il potenziale della struttura non sia sfruttato appieno visto quanto detto sopra.

La posizione strategica ed il suo panorama vista lago ne merita il soggiorno. All'ospitalità non saprei dare un voto visto che non siamo stati molto all'interno della struttura per entrare in confidenza con i proprietari. Certo è che la colazione non ha rispecchiato le nostre aspettative. Un po' impersonale offrire dei cibi confezionati senza nemmeno un prodotto tipico del luogo. Per di più il tutto doveva essere preparato da noi senza alcun tipo di servizio. Non vi dimenticate di portare con voi dei prodotti cosmetici per il bagno visto che non ve ne erano a disposizione. Il servizio potrebbe essere molto più curato per andare di pari passo all'architettura del luogo, consideratala splendida ristrutturazione di cui la struttura ha goduto, e la vista panoramica.

Situato sulla collinetta permette di avere un panorama eccezionale. Il posto è ideale per il relax e vicino al centro di Lesa. Comodo con la macchina per la vicinanza agli altri paesi.

Ringrazio Sara e Michele per l'eccellenza della loro ospitalità, la riservatezza e allo stesso tempo la disponibilità. Nulla è lasciato al caso e la colazione è allo stesso tempo casalinga (torte) e internazionale (formaggi, speck) Se poi vuoi uova, le galline nel parco, te le forniscono. Ti affacci al balcone e lo spettacolo sia di giorno che la notte ti lascia senza fiato. Silenzio, pace e serenità, sono altre qualità speciali al B&B La Torretta. Grazie Sara e Michele e tornerò.

Bellissimo B&B a Lesa in posizione panoramica (a circa 2 km dal paese, si raggiunge con una strada panoramica e qualche tornante). Camera nuovissima (terminata nel 2014), pulita, confortevole, con cucinotto e vetrata panoramica sul lago. Nel giardino si trovano anche tanti animali: cani, galline e cavalli. Bellissimo. La vista è spettacolare e da sola ripaga di tutto. Proprietari gentili e disponibili. La mattina ci si perde ad ammirare il lago.

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.
