The combination of great hosts and excellent food made this place memorable and relaxing. Really enjoyed our time here - give it a shot if you're in the area! We booked it for the accommodation, but discovered that there is an excellent little restaurant owned by the same family attached to this property, as well as a coffee bar and... More

After traipsing through Italy - visiting Venice, Florence, Sienna, Milan, and Lugano (Switzerland)...we found ourselves at this medieval village overlooking Lake Como. Walking around the village is a Game of Thrones type of experience. It's just charming beyond belief - but to be in an authentic family-based B&B/restaurant with a 1000-year-old watchtower? Put it all together and you just can't... More

Ok..... Yes..... It is hard to find..... But WHAT a find! If we could live there I would in a heart beat!!! We got very lost trying to find it... We were tired and like cranky kids....and we finally stopped by a motorcycle shop ( yeah... Our comfort zone!!) to ask directions. That's another GREAT story but one of the... More

Stayed here with my family in the fall. It is located in a small village up the hill from lake como. It is run by a very friendly Italian family (English speaking). They have wonderfully restored an old Italian building, turning it into a modern, classic B&B. I would definitely recommend the stay here and plan on going back anytime... More

We were unaware our accommodation was up a windy hill in a small village above Mandello Del Lario. No matter. Our wonderful host Julianna and her daughter picked us up, drove us back down, worried we might not get the taxi back and drove us back to the station when we left. Beautiful location up the hill, comfy beds and... More

My partner and I spent our last three nights of a 2 week holiday in the Lake Como area at this absolutely fantastic B&B. Family run, beautifully appointed and a lovely restful place to spend a few days. Maggiana is a tiny little village up the hill from Mandello del Lario so we would recommend having a car but there...

Excellent overnight stay on our way to Genova. Beautifully restored family owned house with marble bathroom, comfy beds and an untypical full american breakfast in the morning to start the day. Dinner upon arrival was outstanding with local fish from the lake as a starter, organically grown veggies and meat as main course and panna cotta as desert - the... More

fantastic service. The adjacent restaurant sal e tabacchi is absolutely a must do for any foodie in the area. The owners are passionate about the local cuisine and love to teach and talk about it. Mandello is a beautiful location and a good place to start any trip going up into the Valtellina.

This lovely family run Bed&Breakfast set above Lake Como and with the advantage of their restaurant, 'Osteria sali E Tabacchi' it was a memorable stay in a really lovely part of Italy. The friendliness of the owners and the superb facilities really made for a very peacefull and enjoyable stay.
