“Perfect hosts in a great house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We had a great stay at annalisas home. It is really beautiful and she was very kind also with our fourth suprising houseguest ;-) The way up and the streets of the city are a little bit tricky so not the best for heavy luggage guests but the accommodation is worth the effort :-) hope to see you again.

Can't say enough positives about staying with Analisa and Lucca! We had a bit of trouble with our train when we got to Milan...we got on one going the opposite direction! For future reference, take the one towards Tirano, NOT Torino! The tracks are right next to each other and the spellings are so similar, we got mixed up. But never fear, I called Analisa and kept in contact with her about the changes in arrival time. We were supposed to arrive at 7:30, but ended up there around 10:30 pm. Analisa was so gracious to pick us up with all our luggage, and when we arrived at her home exhausted from our ordeal, she offered to make us pasta at almost midnight! We knew then and there we had made a new friend who was gracious and never stressed out. :-) We were only there for a couple of nights, but really enjoyed our stay. She gave us maps and helpful information about ferries, taxis, etc. Would stay there again in a heartbeat! If we could only travel to beautiful Lake Como again sometime soon...

Thank you ever so much for being such great hosts for us last summer! I don't know your method, but you almost felt like old friends to us when we left. We really would like to come back again.
Warm regards,

We truly enjoyed the hospitality of Anna Lisa and Luca. Very quick response (I planned a spontaneous trip the day before, but received a reply within a few hours!!) and a personal touch all the way through. From the initial email communication we felt welcome, then going to her recommended restaurant (still haven't met them at this stage) to finally arriving at their little castle - like a dream. Loads of storytelling, showing the house openly 11pm and a comfortable sleep. If you are looking for an authentic stay, this is your choice. Will for sure come back! Thanks again Anna Lisa and Luca!

My friend and I stayed in this lovely bed and breakfast in October 2011 and it was the best place we have ever stayed at. It is located in the cutest little village! It may seem a little out of the way but we visited all the major towns in Lake Como and were so glad we stayed where we did. The other places are easily accessible by train (5-10min) and ferry, but this village is so magical. We had a great relaxing time.

The accommodation is very nice, our room was HUGE and very very clean. And the breakfast was yummy!

The most fantastic part of the experience was the lovely hosts. Ana Lisa is the most wonderful host we have ever come across. I had a small medical issue and she helped me find the right hospital, drove me an hour each way to get there and even helped translate for me with the doctor. She was so kind and generous with her time and went waaaaay beyond her call of duty. I will never forget her hospitality!

I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

We stayed at Contrada Lunga for a week with our two young sons (10 & 8).
The village location is ideal as you can either walk 10mn (using the shortcuts) to reach the lake shore or drive down there if you feel lazy...
Annalisa and her husband are really making you feel at home as they give you advises that only the local people can know.
Rooms are spacious, quiet, comfortable and equiped with an internet connection free of charge.
We also had great breakfast with home-made jams and soft-boiled eggs. Really delicious !

If you are looking to have a more true local experience in Lake Como then look no further. Lucca and his wife were unbelievably accommodating. Upon arrival we were greeted with local wine, olives and meats. The B&B is located in the hills of Abbadia Lariana, a small quaint town with few tourists. There is a great walking path through the old town down to the lake. You feel like you could be in 18th century Italy. The room was very clean, modern but still has the old Italian charm. For the money this place is a steal. You will not be dissapointed.
