Kristina and Maurizio bend over backwards at their B&B, lodged in a beautifully restored 16th-century town house. Exposed stone, natural fabrics and earthy colours dominate in four rooms kitted out with Nespresso coffee machines and flat-screen TVs. There's also a family-friendly apartment with washing machine and full kitchen. Take bus 2 to Posta Castagnola, 2km east of the centre. A generous breakfast (Sfr10 extra) is served just down the hill at the stone-and stucco Bar La Strada, which the pair also manage.
