Located right on the lake shore with lovely views from our room, this is a great place to stay and good value. We had the attic studio which had the advantage of a lake view but we had to lug our cases up quite a few stairs. The studio was spacious with a good kitchen, but no toaster, electric jug... More

My fiance and I had a great experience staying at the B&B Frontelago. The town and the B&B are very cute and the owners are very nice. We had a delightful time -- our room (#1) was like an apartment with an upstairs bedroom. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great time in Lake Como.... More

I would definitely recommend B&B Frontelago. The house is stunning, and the rooms very well appointed, clean and modern. The town itself doesn't have too much to offer, but if you time the trains, it's easy to spend the day in Varenna or on the lake and make it back on the last local train (we never had to pay...

Fantastic place to stay and great hosts! We stayed for 2 days visited the moto guzzi museum, veranna and villa carlotta which is fantastic. The bnb is located at Mondello olcio - if you are travelling by train or bus.

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

Thanks Maria & Pietro, you made us feel so comfortable & fed us well. We stayed here and traveled from the train station at Olcio to multiple destinations. Quaint area sitting across from Lake Como. Our room was spacious & ever so clean. Maria & Pietro were so kind in assisting us in so many ways. The breakfast that is... 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
