Beautiful location. Superb accommodation. Charming couple. They brought us to the restaurant for a superb Italian meal that was so inexpensive and brought us to town the following day. Looked after us beyond the call of duty.

Maria & Pietro the perfect B&B Owners,

Rooms roustic style but in perfect condition, very clean and very tidy.
The place and the owners gives you the feeling that you are a guest in a freinds house and not in a B&B.

Great Breakfast in a very freindly atmosphere.

Great location just in front of the lake.

Maria gave some great tips for great routes in the sourouning mountains as well as places to eat and see.

Thank you Maria & Pietro, hope to see you again in the future.
Evgenios

Room Tip: We stayed at Tivano Room which had a lake view.

Frontelago was a great find and we loved every minute of our 5-day stay here. Pietro met us at the train station in Olcio, and he and his wife Maria were wonderful hosts and lots of fun. We had a fantastic view of the lake from our balcony - the room was great and bed was very comfortable. The house is beautiful - full of antiques and paintings and there's a little beach in front. The breakfasts were probably the best we've ever had at a B&B. Olcio is quiet - the train station is a few mins walk and it's easy to get to other towns around the lake by train and ferry - such as Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room with a balcony and lake view.

My friend and I went to Olcio last month and we stayed 4 days at B&B FRONTELAGO. We were welcome very friendly by the owners Pietro and Maria and we liked the place immediately. Our bedroom, called "La brezza", had a breathtaking view on the lake and we had a terrace, where we could stay reading and relaxing at evening. In the morning the breakfast was gorgeous. The village is an ancient one, with the railway station very near to the place. So we could easily go to Varenna, Milan and Bergamo by train. Maria kindly give us a lot of tips on where to go and what to do during our staying. Also a book with all the attractions of the Lake Como, complete with all information, which we found in the living room available to everybody, was very useful to organize our free time. During the day we always made trip in the area and when we came back home we went to the little beach right in front of our B&B. Moreover, not far from the B&B, is a family restaurant, where Mrs. Lucia prepares very good meals at only 13 Euro!!!! For a complete dinner included wine! Finally at 50 metres from the B&B there is a wonderful ice-cream saloon with a excellent homemade ice-cream. So we had a wonderful holiday and we surely will come back to Olcio. Of course to B&B FRONTELAGO at Maria and Pietro!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifull.

Banter, laughter and smiling faces are the memories of our stay at Frontelago. with the Lake Como across the road, it is a truly beautiful place to stay. Maria and Pietro give the warmest welcome and want to make each person's stay special. A true Italian home which is clean and very comfortable with the most wonderful breakfast. The large table is laden with homemade delicacies; savouries, cakes, meats, fruit, and rich, smooth coffee. We stayed for three days but would have liked longer. There was also the added bonus of the restaurant, half a kilometre along the road, where they provided a 3/4 course meal including a bottle of wine and bottle of water for 13 Euros per person! The train along Lake Como and beyond is only 5 mins walk from Frontelago. We shall definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the large balcony. It looks directly over the Lake.

The location of this B&B is perfect- right opposite the lake with wonderful views. There is a small bit of shingle beach to sit on too. Maria and Pietro are just so lovely and welcoming. They can't do enough to help you are were always so happy and friendly. The room we had was large with a large ensuite. Each morning the breakfast was varied and vast- yogurt, omlette, hams, cereal, melon, cakes and wonderful coffee. We had the most wonderful start to our honeymoon here and would highly recommend.

Maria and Pietro were very welcoming hosts, always greeting us with a big smile despite our lack of Italian and their lack of English. The house is full of lovely old antiques and our room was a good size with a massive bathroom. Our own balcony had a teriffic view of Lake Como, and you are within 8 kilometres of lovely Varenna (with its ferry to Bellaigo). Breakfasts were lovely with some home cooked goodies. All in all a wonderful Italian experience!
