This is one of the nicest B&B we ever stayed in with really nice owners! Maria and Pietro welcome you as friends as soon you enter the drive way. The location is beautiful by the lake and the train station to Milan is a 5 minute walk up the hill. Rooms are big and clean with lovely decoration. We really... More

We were looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay which is not too far from the main tourist towns of Varenna and Bellagio. Frontelago was an excellent fit and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The train ride from Milano Centrale to Olcio was easy and comfortable with a train change at Lecco and the entire journey took 1.5hrs.... More

Extremely friendly folk, clean and nice place, amazing breakfast! Would definitely recommend it to other people. Only negative point is that there is barely an option to go out to eat around the guesthouse (except the amazing ice dealer 30m away). In this case I recomment you have dinner at Varenna, which has lots of great places to eat. Otherwise... More

Maria and Pietro were perfect hosts and very helpful. Breakfast was excellent, so much food and we ate it outside in their garden. The room was very clean and spacious with great views over the lake. The accommodation is about 10 minutes drive to Varenna for the ferry to all the main villages and attractions. They gave some great recommendations... More

When My family and I were traveling around Lake Como we found this wonderful gem. Maria and Pietro were exceeded all expectations, and were amazing hosts. The location is not in a city, so its nice and quite, and away from much of the craziness. The ferry connection is quite close to anywhere you need to go. Our rooms were... More

Maria and Pietro are excellent hosts who run an extremely clean, very traditional B&B on the outskirts of Mandello del Lario, 15 min from Varena with its ferry connections to all the other main attractions on the lake. We rented their attic apartment for 5 nights and were very pleased with everything, including breakfast. The owners are very warm, kind... More

Frontelago is a great place. Our apartment was cute and well-furnished. The common rooms were quaint and charming. Maria's breakfast was ample and delicious (mmm... tiramisu). But the greatest asset were definitely our hosts, Maria and Pietro. They were really hospitable, forthcoming and informative. Maria really went above and beyond by driving us to the train station at five in... More
