We spent one night at La Darsena and having read other writeups before had no problem with the noise from the road (we always travel with ears plugs). The room was fine, the paintwork on the bathroom ceiling needs a little refreshing over the shower - the usual problem with hot steam and colder ceilings, the live classical piano music... More

We spent a night at the B&B La Darsena. The beds had a very nice view to the lake and clean sheets. The bathrooms were also in very good appearence. The breakfast was made by the owners of the place and had fruits, croissants and fresh bread. Highly recommended for a stay or a lake explore in Meina!

The owners are incredible as is the location. Overwhelming view of the lake and the sunrise above from the pillow. The rooms are tastefully decorated. The owner is a wonderful piano player. Listening to him while enjoying the delicious breakfast which is homemade by his wife and overooking the Lago Maggiore feels just like heaven.

It is indeed a nice place, with a nice garden, a spacious room and bathroom, and a wonderful view over the lake. But... just behind the bnb lies the main road circling the lake, and behind that road lies the railway... So that you can't hope to lie in too late in the morning. Nice hosts, nice breakfast but not... More

They showed us some very good restaurants in nearby Arona. The man also played on the piano while we were having breakfast at the lakeside. Breakfast is fine, rather limited choice,... More

Very nice family owned B&B with beautiful view for Lago Maggiore. Everything is clean and the breakfast are delicious. Unfortunately location is about 40 minutes walking to nearest town Arona, where you can take a dinner or enjoy local night life.

My boyfriend and I spent two days relaxing in this strep of the lake. The location is very quiet and comfortable,the view is wonderful and the evening the moon reflected on the lake.

ATTENTION: I would like to warn everybody to not get fooled by the pictures! There is one good thing about this B&B and that is only the nice view.

The only good thing about this B&B is the wonderful lake view. The rest is an insult to you as a guest. The rooms are filthy... You could write your name in the dust everywhere. Spiders in and out, it feels like Halloween ounce the night falls. The breakfast is a joke. The only bread you'll receive are dry toast,... More
