Polidora B&B

Polidora is a renovated farmhouse from the early 1900s, located inside Villa Intragnola gardens.

Polidora has only three spacious and comfortable rooms fitted with Italian design furniture. The small dimension of the accommodation adds a familiar and reserved character to the place.

The new complex preserves the original rural atmosphere. It is characterized by an interior with a large porch and some brick arches arranged in a cross; the rooms are located in the former barn; an elegant living room, ex-cow shed, for breakfast or relaxing moments in front of the fireplace, is accessible from the entrance.

Polidora Bed & Breakfast on Lake Maggiore is an unusual place where you can experience life in contact with beautiful Nature. It is a place to meditate far away from noise. Perfect for couples, families with children, garden lovers, and those who love to spend time in a relaxed atmosphere. It can be an ideal place for romantic breaks.

In the 20s of XX century the villa hosted the famous English composer and conductor Albert Coates, and his friends George Bernard Shaw, the writer, and Paul Troubetskoj, the sculptor.
