"Our last 2 nights in Italy in May, we stayed at a wonderful B&B called I Castagni that was recommended to us by Tim from Villa Sampaguita. It is in Casorate Sempione and is only 10 minutes from Malpensa Airport. The B&B accommodation is the entire ground floor of a house (the family lives on the upper level), and has a twin-bedded room, small living room, huge bathroom and its own kitchen/dining area. Price is 80 euros a night for 2 w/ a huge breakfast in the morning. It was so much nicer (and cheaper) for us than staying in a hotel!

The owners, Carlo and Anna are really wonderful and Carlo speaks decent English. Anna makes many of the wonderful breads and pastries for the breakfasts.

It was so lovely and so convenient to the airport, that I am staying there again the first night when I return to Italy in September. Cost for a single in the B&B, 50 euros a night.

And, Carlo is willing to pick you up or drop you off at Malpensa, at no extra charge. We had a rental car when we were there in May, but I wanted to make sure that have a decent night's sleep before I attempt to drive in Italy by myself on my upcoming trip. Carlo has offered to pick me up at Malpensa the day I arrive and then take me back to the airport the next day to pick up my rental car - at no extra charge!

I've been looking for a nice B&B that was close to Malpensa Airport for years. And I finally found it with I Castagni. I plan on staying there every time I fly into Malpensa from now on.
