it's hard to get to if you don't have a car, i'd recommend planning taxis and buses in advance as both are irregular. The walk down to lake Como is beautiful, but takes two hours (there is hotel three quarters of the way down perfect for a pit stop). The food is delicious, best breakfast I've had for a while,...

We stayed at Al-Marnich 2 days and it was really like being at home. The small house where we stayed, gave us a feeling every detail there has been made with thought and care. They have many nice hiking routes with magnificient views near there. I have to mention that I haven´t slept as deeply as I did there. It... More

Emanuele and company was Charming!! The food was real Italian farm to table experience. Menu changed every night for the three nights that we stayed there. The open kitchen was very clean. They even let us take a picture with the Chef and company for a great memory. If your looking for non tourist food and feel like you want... More

I found the place very difficult to find. The climb up the mountain would have been a chore for Sir Edmond Hillery. My GPS kept saying "I'm lost Too" Very poor signage on the roads up to the destination. A sign is needed at the fountain pointing to their Road! The facility looked very quaint when we finally arrived. I... More

This is a charming rustic farmhouse, a short drive from Lake Como (if you go the opposite way to our sat-nav, which took us all around the mountain villages, rather than along the shores of the lake then up, but nevermind). The owners were lovely. One spoke English really well, the other a man didn't, but we still managed to... More

This is first time we stay in a place which is far from the main attractions. I think that for us it whould have been better to stay near to the lake, since most of our days we spent at the lake. Also, since it is far on the mountain, nothing really to do at the afternoon or eavning. We... More

My husband has been asking me to try agriturismo and I am very happy that I actually said yes, this time round. It was a unique and wonderful experience. We have been to Lake Como before so I agreed to try something really different. Al-Marnich is a hidden gem. We paid 65euros for the room (which is cheap for Europe).... More

We drove 8km up the mountain from Lake Como in the evening in the pouring rain which makes for an adventurous drive. With no reservations & dripping wet, the owners were so accommodating. They had 1 room available which they showed me...I loved the small, cozy, rustic cottage feel. While registering, they sat us down with some excellent red vino... More
