I stayed in both the Colonial Suite and the Summer House... Gary and Jen took care of me, even let me borrow their tools, made sure I had everything I need and made me feel more cared for and special than I can remember feeling perhaps ever! Their conversation and insights made me want to stay in Solcio so that we could be friends! I loved curling up in the window seat of the summer house, eating on the balcony looking over the lake, watching some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets imaginable. This place in incomparable. I left less than a day ago and I am already wracking my brain for a way to return or friends that I could send...
per ragioni di lavoro, mi sono trovato a soggiornare per alcuni giorni presso il b&b Ca' Bianca di Antonio e Bianca. Ho trovato un'accoglienza familiare e una struttura veramente ben pulita e curata in una zona tranquilla, ottimo rientro dopo una giornata di lavoro.
Senza ombra di dubbio il miglior appartamento in cui abbia soggiornato a Milano, dove vado 2 o 3 volte all’anno. Dal vivo ancor piu bello che nelle foto, dotato di ogni comfort, con la possibilità di farsi una colazione così ricca che nemmeno in certo alberghi si trova. Quando poi ho aperto l’armadio e ho trovato accappatoio e ciabatte mi sembrava incredibile… La posizione è ottima a due passi dalla metro fermata Porta Venezia. La sig.ra Michela è gentilissima
From the views (stunning!) to the quaint (but spacious!) rooms, and the incredible surroundings...all outstanding. But most importantly, and making this a most special visit to Lago Maggiore, are Gary and Jenny. These generous and caring hosts know no boundaries when providing you with the best, and friendliest, service imaginable. There is simply nothing that one could say is missing from this amazing stay. We will be back!
We've just returned from a stay at this little bit of heaven on earth! A visit to Villa san Antonio should not be missed if you are planning a trip to Lake Maggiore. Our stay from start to finish was absolutely faultless. Dear Jenny & Garry are such lovely hosts, welcoming their guests with a genuine warmth and generosity you would most definately fail to find in in any top hotel. Attention to detail to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay is certainly achieved. One highlight was waking to the beautiful lake view through wide open windows with the fragrance of jasmine flowers wafting on the air, all this without even getting out of bed.
Abbiamo prenotato un weekend a Milano, anziché optare per un hotel, abbiamo optato per un appartamento. Tutto quello che può servire e ANCHE DI PIU', qui lo trovate. Abbiamo avuto un meraviglioso soggiorno in Kramer 33. Situato in una posizione perfetta per visitare Milano, pochi minuti a piedi da Duomo, metropolitana molto vicina. Proprietaria sempre disponibile. GRAZIE
Se had an amazing time at Alessandra's B&B: the room is sheer luxury, the hostess is helpful, efficient, kind and warm, the location best in town, central, lively at anytime and with all conforts at walking distance. You'll feel at ease in a very chic atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Viaggio a Milano per lavoro di 3 giorni, ho trovato un'accoglienza sopra le aspettative e dire che mi ritengo un po' esigente....bella camera con bagno interno, colazione curata ( accompagnata da una rosa) ubicazione pieno centro. È un indirizzo da conservare! Grazie ancora Fernanda per avermi fatto sentire a casa ..... e per le aspirine!!
Davvero un bel posto!! Gary &Jenny unici !!! il panorama... mozzafiato!!Molto romantica la Summerhouse che gode di una vista sul lago da sogno!!che dire è il posto ideale per rilassarsi e rigenerarsi godendosi i giardini ben curati e il cinguettare degli uccelli e dei gabbiani in lontananza! A presto Rosy&Daniel
We really enjoyed our stay at Bigatt B&B. The warm welcome, the help offered, the restaurant booked, the clean and colourful bed rooms, the delisious breakfast... and not to forget Laura, who speaks fluent English and likes to chat with her guests. We will definitively suggest this wonderful place to all our friends.
We spent a lovely week at the villa in late August this year.- We had first planned to stay there for only 2-3 days, but decided to stay a whole week. We chose the Summer House and were very happy with our choice. Amazing views from your private balcony and very cute inside. Our breakfasts, served on a beautiful patio with Lago Maggiore below us, were lovingly prepared by our hosts and simply delicious. Reaching Solcio was super-convenient: We arrived at Milan (Malpensa Airport) where we had booked a direct air-conditioned bus to Solcio (less than an hour's ride at a very low rate). We found we did not miss having a car, as we could walk down to two good restaurants in Solcio and/or use local transportation to nearby Strea and Arona. Our hosts, Jenny and Gary, took excellent care of us during our stay and we will definitely return in the future.
My husband and had a wonderful stay at Villa San Antonio and we were sad that we had only booked one night before heading on to Verona. We were touched by the warmth and kindness Gary and Jenny showed us. What better way to start the day than with a swim followed by a scrumptious breakfast with a gorgeous view! We look forward to coming back and spending more time with you both...maybe with some music at the piano bar?! Thank you for everything!
I stayed here with my two friends for a weekend break and we shared the triple room. It's very nicely decorated and they've given it a hotel finish - it is very clean. We only went for the breakfast on Saturday and it was fine, very minimal but not unlike breakfasts you get offered in Europe. I think us Brits like to have a full fry up though when we're on our holidays! My only complaint would be that there was no one there to meet us when we arrived on Friday and we were stood ringing the buzzer for ages. We were three females on our own in a city we didn't know and we started to worry but fortunately one of the neighbours was on her way out and guessed we staying in the Castaldi House. It turned out we had to go round the corner to a bar to pick up the keys and she showed us where that was. Thank goodness! But it would have been very helpful to have been given this information before we arrived.
What a find! The boyfriend had organised the flights so my job was the accommodation....it had to be something super special for our first time away together....and I FOUND IT! We stayed in the Summerhouse, which was a romantic little hideaway with a lovely terrace with views over the lake....it was pretty much exactly what you would want for a romantic get-away. On top of that we had such lovely hosts in Gary and Jenny, it was a real pleasure to meet them. We even had stunning weather and the Lake Maggiore area was a perfect place to go for lots of fun, swimming in the lake and loads of gelato. A fantastic find....but dont tell everyone as we would like to be able to go again and have our Summerhouse! Enjoy - you wont go wrong with this one!
We were four mature adults traveling Europe by train. When we got to MilanoBella we found a wonderful apartment with two seperate ensuite bedrooms. The facilty was less than one year old and the most comfortable place we stayed in Italy. We stayed here 3 nights, and were so pleased to find that the heat was still on during this unusually cold rainy April, every where else, in 4 star hotels, in Italy, we had been told that the heating was turned off on April 1st Martin and Sara are delightful and helpful with info about the area and city. Great breakfast, maybe could use some ham or cheese, as is usual in most of Europe. The beds are very comfortable and it was great to have the sitting /dining room for afternoon tea and snacks and use of the computer, even a nap on the sofa with the balcony doors open on one sunny morning. As you can see from their photos, everthing sparkles. We highly recommed Milano Bella, you will love staying there. Easy to use the subway and nice area to walk around and shop, not as expensive as town center. We hope to come back to Milano and stay with you again. From So. California
We have spent only 1 night in this villa, but we'll never forget it. Arriving late, Jenny and Gary took time to have a glass with us and discuss friendly. Everything is great : the lasagnas prepared by Jenny for our dinner, the house, the balcony, the vue, the Gary's old cars, the music, the bed, the bathroom... But the best are Jenny and Gary. Adorable!!!
We travelled to Milan for exhibition in mid April 2012, we were totally 4 adults with my 6-months baby. We stayed in B&B Milano Bella and were served completely warm and comfortable. We were surprised when we arrived at the B&B, all the fittings and furnitures are cozy and warm. Even my baby girl took the first travel, she felt safe and comfortable during the stay. Everything there is well equipped and nothing I can complain (except the weather, hahaha.....) There is a supermarket, laundry and restaurants closely nearby and also you can do a lot of shoppings in only 2 minutes walk. Martin and Sara, the owner, are so nice and helpful. Martin provides a lot of useful information to us. We will remember all the happiness there. I will definitely stay in B&B Milano Bella when we travel to Milan again. Phyllis
My brief time spent at Villa San Antonio was completely unforgettable - the views are spectacular, the surroundings sumptuous and the dining was an experience from beginning to end. Jenny and Gary envelop you into the fold and you'll never want to leave!! I can't wait to return...
A “Gem” on the shores of Lake Maggiore with stunning views. I spent four idyllic days in this amazing place. What an experience!The Summer House is just gorgeous and the Colonial Room perfect in every way. Our hosts Jenny and Gary could not have done more for us. This is definitely a place to visit . Can’t wait to go back there and stay longer.The air is so good there too.
We stayed at the Villa Sanantonio in 2010 and loved every minute. Gary and Jenny treated us like old friends and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was delicious, spectacular senery, lovely room and great boat trip on the lake. Can't wait to stay there again as it has become our favourite holiday destination.
The Villa San Antonio was more than a place to sleep.... It was an experience.... A pleasure... A first of many times I will most definately return! Besides the fact that it's stunning, overlooking the priceless view of Lago Maggiore, the hosts are simply special. Jenny and Gary made us feel part of their home... Of their life for 1 night. Their warmth and kindness is what made this stay more than what we could have ever expected. They're amazing. And can Jenny ever cook!!! Enjoy!!!
We spent an amazing weekend in the villa San Antonio at the end of September 2011. The little summerhouse with the fascinating view over the lake Maggiore, the excellent familiar service with the best scrambled eggs for breakfast and the warm sunny days made our stay like in paradise. We loved it there and will come back! Lovely greetings, Heike + Andreas from Germany
we were very impressed by the beauty of the place and the kind hospitality of Gary And Jennifer.. we've had the opportunity to be at The villa into an independent suite, everything was intimate and romantic.. But le me stress again the best part of the thing.. Gary and Jennifer.. we had great time in funny conversations and .. well.. a lot of good wine! I just regret i couldn't spend more time at the place :) Thanks for everything Fabrizio And Chiara
