History

At Brovello between hills and lake.

For more than six generations our family have been living in Alto Vergante in the small village Brovello-Carpugnino, near Stresa, laid down between the Lago Maggiore hills and the Ossola mountains, close to Switzerland.

Five generations have been living in this house which has been modified several times during the last years.

As first the house was just used in the summer for holidays, for the deserved breaks after the working activity in the busy and lively Milan. Than, after being retired, it became fixed residence.

Women have always played an important role in this choice of life change and in the Love for this House.
Moving from a city like Milan, with all the possibilities that it may offer, to a tiny village, tucked away into the silent and green hills, is a huge step, but the magnificent of this places, which a lot of people envy us for, and a surely slower rhythm, make up for the change.

Having explained all this, our house is offering to the ones, who pay attention to the small and big delights which a relaxing and quiet holiday may offer in the green surrounding of one most beautiful Italian Lake, a perfect starting point to give themselves great relaxing moments.

Family styles and welcoming rooms and our best services will always be at your disposal.

We have just finished the renovation of the attic with all the most updated comforts, insulation, energy saving and accessibility for people on wheelchair and we would like to share with other people our joy of hospitality.

The B&B is run by Anna, the architect who projected the renovation and Marisa’s daughter, and by Silvio, Anna’s husband, an engineer, who with his industriousness and eclecticism, realised himself different works during this long renovation.

They have always been into mountains, nature and landscape, photography and art (above all minor) and they are trying to valorise the surroundings and to share with long-time and new friends and acquaintances, the delights of the territory with information, suggestions and brochures for a holiday which may be relaxing but also alternative and interesting.
