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 di casa and shortly thereafter, an incredible home cooked dinner was served with warm fresh bread...perfect timing! I enjoyed the ambiance and the authentic Italian feel. Breakfast was also wonderful. Fun to see all the animals and the mountain views were stunning. We extended our stay as it was so quiet and relaxing. A wonderful get away in a beautiful area high a top the mountains with amazing hiking. Great unique place!
