We stayed at a lovely 20 room bed and breakfast called La Fontana in the resort town of Stresa, on Lake Maggiore. Here I am with the owner, Giuseppe, comparing notes after dinner one evening and – wouldn’t you know it – innkeeper issues are pretty much the same in Stresa as they are in Fernandina. We had a lot of fun with him and I would highly recommend a stay there should you ever be fortunate enough to be in the area.
