In Lesa, on the hills overlooking Lake Maggiore, stands La Torretta Studios & Suite; 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.

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.

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.

Dato il costo del pernottamento ci saremmo aspettati una pulizia quotidiana (o almeno ogni 2 giorni) dell'alloggio. Inoltre le scale di accesso dalla strada nella quale si parcheggia la macchina hanno i primi gradini molto dissestati e, data la pendenza, risultano anche pericolosi. La posizione è veramente favolosa e credo che con qualche piccolo accorgimento in più, anche nella cura del verde circostante, si raggiungerebbero sicuramente standard più alti.

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!

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.
