We recently visited Varese as a family group, my husband and I travelled with my parents and our two sons. La Collina was perfect for our group of six, my parents took the ground floor room and the rest of us were upstairs in two rooms near the charming breakfast room. All rooms were comfortable, beautifully decorated and had lovely bathrooms.
Fabio and Luigi were great hosts, they provided a fabulous breakfast each day and Fabio was always ready to chat and make helpful recommendations in relation to places to visit, travel options and where to park our large people carrier when arriving in the beautiful towns. We also appreciated his willingness to give lifts to Varese in the evening when we were going out for dinner.
We had a really enjoyable stay at La Collina and are sure we will return in the spring when we will hope for good weather to make the most of the beautiful gardens around the property. Thanks again Fabio and Luigi!
Wow, Fabio's attention to what his guests require is spot on. Never have we been helped in so much detail. He has time to talk to you with patience & understanding & without his help & tips we may not have managed to do so much in such a short space of time.
Room was faultless & despite not having air-con, & it was mighty hot, we had a fan in the bedroom that was perfect. He made us feel very welcome. We chose to stay in one evening & he ordered takeaway Pizzas for us & set a table outside for us to eat 'al fresco'.
As he & I are in a special birthday year he even arranged a celebratory birthday aperitif & nibbles prior to his dropping us off in town for the evening. Such a personable guy.
Fabio....you are brilliant. Thank you so much for a fab stay.
I have never been treated so well. Fabio is careful about every detail to make sure we have a magnificent stay. His friendly service is above and beyond what we expected. Everything is high quality and lovely with personal touches. We even have fresh flowers in our room along with crocheted lace from his grandmother. The gardens are well manicured. They create the perfect setting for breakfast on the terrace. Everything here is cultured and in good taste. I would love to return again and again.
we really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and unique B&B.
The owner welcomed us very friendly. The room was beautiful and very clean.
We enjoyed the Continental Breakfast outside on the terrace. The owner also took care of my gluten sensitivity and offered different alternative to the regular bread. Great.
He was also very helpful including recommendations concerning restaurants or trips around the area. All in all we felt like visiting a friend. There is alot of heart and soul in this B&B...we can def. recommend this B&B and we would def. stay here again.....
This B&B is excellent. I come to the Varese area on business about once a month and stay here every time (if there is availability). Fabio and Luigi are wonderful hosts, the entire place; bedrooms, common room, kitchen area are spotlessly clean. The location is quite, on a hill with nice views and a beautiful garden...but I'll say it again, the best feature are the hosts, they make you feel welcome and are always willing to advise you on travel options and things to experience in the area. I give B&B La Collina my highest recommendation.
