Il Tivano is a beautiful property about 15-20mins drive from Lake Como. The room was very creatively designed with reclaimed and restored features. It was laid out very well and had brilliant views over the valley. It had all the necessary amenities and was immaculately clean. There is plenty of available safe parking and we could come and go as... More

Beautifully rennovated place, large rooms with comfortable beds. Minimalistic design B&B with attention to detail, truly unique! Marilena and Alberto were wonderful guests. Location is beautiful and very quiet but it is a 10-15 minutes drive by car to the lake area. Breakfast was a bit disappointing and limited to bread, home made jam and honey, yoghurt and some fresh... More

Alberto knows and loves the area and is always ready to recommend outings and resaurants. and Marilena seems to know all of the secret villages to walk. The rooms themselves were spotlessly clean and beautiful, every bit as enticing as... More

Everything was just pefect! The rooms were nicely designed, the breakfast in the sun outdoor was delicious with everything home-made and Alberto&Marilena give you a great welcome! The restaurants nearby (recommended by Alberto) are authentic and very good. You' re between the local people and they are really friendly. We stayed there 2 nights and then moved on to Toscane....

We stayed here in September 2011. Il Tevano was a very stylish B&B, in stunning countryside, with magnificent views. The building is a great mix of modern & reclaimed - as befits a house owned & designed by a photographer & an architect . Our bedroom was very comfortable, and it was lovely to take breakfast in the garden each... More
