We aim to welcome you into our own home and make your stay pleasant and relaxing.

Ca' Del Sole Guest House is right in the heart of Parco Pineta Natural Reserve, an area of luscious pine, chestnut and oak woodland.

On the outskirts of the small town of Appiano Gentile, our family-run country house is strategically situated at the centre of the Como - Milano - Varese triangle, at about 16 km from Lake Como.

If you are after a relaxing break, enjoy long walks and are interested in visiting the many natural beauties, museums, archaeological sites and historic buildings, you will love it here.

A continental breakfast with home-made bread and cakes is provided every morning. We are committed to using fresh local food and to buying local, supporting the small town shops. Our teas, coffee and sugar are fair-trade and where possible we use organic ingredients. Our free range eggs and fresh milk are from local farms.
For guests wishing to eat other meals at home we offer good self-catering facilities in the comfortable and rustic common room. Ingredients can be purchased or ordered from the local shops.

Guest accommodation is carefully planned to retain a homely feel that we hope you will appreciate. We have a maximum of 6 guests at a time, giving a peaceful, communal atmosphere. Guests share the use of the bathroom and the newly refurbished common area / dining room and self-catering kitchen facilities. Our guests value an atmosphere more informal and more personal than in hotels or larger guest houses.Payment cas on arrival. Reception available from 10am till 9pm, breakfast isnclusive.
