I can't say what I liked best about B&B BellaVista. The view from the bedroom (we rented out both top floor rooms, for the 3 of us) is fantastic. The food is amazing - we had both breakfast and dinner one night fixed by Gabriella. I liked the garden immensely and the neighbor's cats who visited. I painted watercolors there. The bed is super comfortable, and the bathroom lovely with handpainted tiles. The house is gorgeous with artistic stenciling on the outside, and beautifully cool and decorated in the interior. Most of all, Gabriella was sweet and helpful in every way. She marked up the boat schedule so we could tour the whole lake one day and try different villages. Bring a swimsuit -- we jumped in at Lenno to cool off. It was hot that week! She also helped us catch a bus to Como for the day, and recommended dining locations.
I can't wait to return to BellaVista! My only recommendation might be a ceiling fan for one or both of the bedrooms, if it is hot.
