How to Get There
Villa Porro Pirelli is a beautiful vintage hotel with an amazing huge garden and wide rooms.
Our stay at this hotel was very unique, this goes to its historical story and to the fact that it was built around 300 years ago.
Friendly and helpful staff, especially Mr. Fransisco at the reception.
Generous breakfast buffet
We will definitely revisit this hotel in summer
I recently had the pleasure to stay at Villa Porro Pirelli and what a pleasure it was. From the moment I arrived until the morning of departure every member of staff I've encountered were so friendly and courteous, a real credit to the establishment. The room were spacious and beautifully maintained, it included a balcony, spacious bathroom and a very comfy bed. The dinner was what you would expect at a hotel of this standard, utterly delicious. I had the beef tartara to start, which were prepared at the table and made to my taste. I really can go on and on about this beutiful villa, but please, if you are in the area it is very well worth a visit. It is only 40 minutes from Malpensa airport and han hour from Lake Como, but you will find beautiful spots to explore in the local area including Porto Ceresio with beautiful views of the lake.
We were here for a couple of days on business. Charming historical location, with beautiful vaulted ceilings and magnificent gardens. Although many of the renovated spaces, including the bedrooms, are now showing some wear and tear, this didn't detract from the splendor of the place. We had several meals here and the food was very good. Overall, the service was efficient and polite - especially the night reception manager who made me early-morning coffees.
