Coming from the Netherlands and travelling to Tuscany, it is always a puzzle to find a nice place in between. Many years my family and I stayed in Lugano (Switzerland), and the last five or six years in Como. In Como our address is the Albergo Terminus, or its more upmarket Villa Fiori, both with a view on Lake Como. Now I think we have found the perfect place to stay: Villa Cavadini (bed and breakfast) in the charming and prosperous little town of Appiano Gentile. Appiano Gentile is a little further south from Como in the direction of Varese and Milano, but in taking a 'short cut' from Lugano, the extra distance is easily taken. Imagine the verdant nature of Lombardia, and a small but 'neat', almost Swisslike town. Right in the middle of Appiano Gentile is the Piazza della Liberta. From here the Via Borgo is a two minutes walk, where on your left side you will find the Villa Cavadini with its imposing entrance and forbidden looking facade. Here a charming couple will wellcome you in their ancestral home, a complex of buildings which are beautifully maintained and painfully restored. There are four rooms, with built in bathroom and shower, television and free connexion to wifi. Their garden, which indeed is a park, stretches to the Pizza della Liberta. In the evening my wife and I had a drink at the Piazza della Liberta, accompanied by tiny morsels of food (pizza, saucissons, olives, pepperoni), before setting ourselves to a full course dinner at the Osteria della Posta. For the more discerning palate there are two other restaurants: Alla Corte and Tarantola. The next morning breakfast awaits you in a tastefully decorated dining room, overlooking the garden. Breakfast consists of two kinds of croissants, home made bread, fresh orange juice, tea, coffee, yoghurt and fresh fruit.
