Listed below are the 4 best family-friendly B&Bs and small hotels that we have ever stayed in! Our B&B Hall of Fame if you will.
Our family criteria includes a wonderful setting, a friendly welcome or amazing food. These family-friendly places simply made us go WOW so we couldn’t recommend them more highly.
(Price range from 120 euros per night for a family room).
Our best ever find on Booking.com! This family room is above a stable on an equestrian estate above Lake Maggiore. There cannot be many B&Bs in Europe with their own tame Zebra. Breakfast rolls and bread are baked fresh on site each morning.
If you like horses (and chihuahuas), this just might be heaven on earth,
Beautiful, remote village setting near the Swiss border, pool and mini-golf, superb restaurant where all the locals dine.
A working farmhouse high up along a single track lane in the hills above Lake Como (although it doesn’t quite have views of the lake). Individual cottages for each family, with kids upstairs and adults downstairs. Fantastic, very memorable restaurant with local Lombardy seasonal specialties, much of it grown here. Perfect holiday destination for foodies and cycling lovers.
Our kids absolutely loved rocking up to this baronial castle and sleeping in it. Stacked with antiques and history and although the facilities like the bathrooms could be rejuvenated, the grand atmosphere is simply wonderful. Their medieval restaurant is superb too.
