If you are looking for that 'secret escape', with a genuinely authentic feel then look no further. I spent 10 days at Cascina Cesarina restoring my spirits and it worked!! Peace and tranquility, lovely food from homegrown organic produce, woodland walks, swimming in the pool and good conversation with the hosts Lorraine and Franco - wonderful. And when the relaxation just gets too much to bear a quick hop into Arona for all sorts of delightful boat and train excursions to some stunning spots ( and islands) on Lake Maggiore not to mention the narrow gauge railway through the mountains to Locarno ( Switzerland). A stunning part of the world - I would thoroughly recommend the whole experience.

Thank you for your warm recommendation! It was a pleasure having you, as you are so appreciative of our philosophy offering natural, healthy food and a rustic but comfortable welcome. And it was also fun to share our favourite places with you, to the point that you abandoned your resolve to just "rest and recuperate" for the first few days without leaving the property, in favour of joining a group of us for an evening of music and celebrations on Isola dei Pescatori on Lake Maggiore. Knowing that you have lived in many different countries and travelled widely, it is great to have impressed such a savvy traveller as yourself. We look forward to hosting you again in the future, for further exploration in summer food foraging in autumn, or in early spring to enjoy the world-famous gardens and stately homes in the area. Arriveferci!

Staying here last weekend was a great experience. a Beautiful setting only 30 minutes drive from Milan Malpensa, and a short drive to Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta, Cascina Cesarina is a real gem.

The hosts are wonderful and the scenery is beautiful. Franco's homegrown vegetables are also a real treat.

The swimming pool, basketball court and hammocks are an excellent way to spend a super relaxing afternoon, and the ease in which the lakes are accessible makes it the perfect holiday.

Many Thanks

Thanks for your glowing review, Henry. It was a pleasure hosting you, just a shame you couldn't stay longer as there is so much more to see and do for keen cyclists and sportsmen like you than can be fitted into a weekend. We hope to see you again for a longer stay - and if cycling and/or trekking the mountains and valleys around the Lakes are your main interests, any time from April-May through September is good, the scenery varying with the seasons but always beautiful! Same goes for our meals, hopefully!

A large group of us went to Cascina Cesarina over the summer, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The house itself is beautiful. The rooms are great - very clean but really have that rustic feel so it feels like a unique experience. The hosts were so welcoming - we really felt at home. Plus, Lorraine is a native English speaker, so that really helped. During out time there, we enjoyed home cooked, meals made out of fresh local ingredients. The hosts also organised a bbq for us, which was great fun. There is a pool and a basketball court at the back, perfect for whiling away your days. Basically, this was an amazingly relaxing experience...enjoy!

Thank you for your kind words. It was great to have you here again, and to meet the new friends you introduced us to. Most of our guests are so busy touring the beautiful surroundings that they don't always take the time to relax and enjoy the pool, barbecue, basketball, ping pong... or relaxing in the hammocks and enjoying the weather, so I'm glad you enjoyed the dolce farniente as well as visiting the lakes and the Borromeo islands. After two summer visits, you could make a change and come in the Spring next time - enjoy the wonderful gardens in the area and we can also point you to some hot water springs where you can enjoy spa treatment and outdoor pools surrounded by snow - an experience you'd never get in the UK!

Family holiday to the Lakes, our first time to Lake Maggiore, a beautiful part of Italy with so much to offer. Our hosts Lorraine and Franco at Cascina Cesarina were absolutely lovely, Lorraine is multi-lingual which is so helpful to us Brits with no language skills! She will provide delicious, organic home produced meals if you wish or you have the choice of eating out locally of course. Lorraine's knowledge of local eateries is very useful as is the choice to eat at Cascina Cesarina or find a restaurant, especially after a long day travelling! Our hosts extensive knowledge of the region and Italian culture not to mention travelling tips really were so valuable, not something you would get at an average B&B that's for sure. The rooms are lovely and the child-safe swimming pool was much enjoyed by us all. We can thoroughly recommend Cascina Cesarina as an outstanding B&B with a warm welcome and very engaging hosts.

Thank you for your kind words. I am glad you all had a great time - though I know you parents sometimes needed all your persuasion skills to get the children to abandon the dogs and the swimming pool to go touring! But I'm glad the weather was great throughout your stay, so you could get in swimming in the lakes too, between monuments and churches! And I'm glad you all enjoyed our home-cooked meals, as well as the restaurants and pizzeria I pointed you to - we try hard to meet everyone's tastes, as we know from experience that even within a family of four, there are likely to be widely varying preferences. We'd love to have you again - next time you could fit in the Lago Maggiore Express tour you had planned but in the end didn't make, and an organized walk in the mountain wilderness area where we know a guide...... there is always lots to tempt people back!

English family with 2 boys. We stayed with Lorraine and Franco for 2 nights. They kindly cooked us lovely evening italian meals with warm and friendly discussions whilst entertaining our boys as well. The pool, garden and bonus basketball court are all ideal for kids and relaxing (after a long drive). The bedroom/en suite bathroom was clean and full of nostalgia... but a tight squeeze for a family of four.
Their home is a little bit off the main roads... but well worth the extra few miles.

Thank you for your kind words. I am glad you all enjoyed your stay with us - Italian dinners and English-style breakfasts are usually highly popular all round! The boys certainly found plenty to keep them busy between basketball, swimming and playing with the dogs! And that was without trying out the ping pong table, bowls.....etc! I am sorry you found the room "a squeeze" - guests using the divan bed as well as the main double bed and the single usually like to close the former each morning for extra space - and they don't spend much time in the bedroom anyway, as there is so much to do outdoors and so many sights to see. We think the room has really gained by having a new ensuite bathroom rather than sharing, as was previously the case, even if this has meant losing a little floor space. Again, we kept the wardrobe and chest of drawers so all clothes/toys can be put away and no-one need 'live out of a suitcase' while with us. We hope to see you again, maybe for a longer stay and not just a 'stopover'. For longer stays, some families like to take both bedrooms, so sleeping next door to one another, but each with their own space.... and we do very special deals for 7-day bookings of both rooms, even in high season!
