Location is tranquil with great views and the lady was friendly and polite. However the place did not live up to the pictures, we were not shown or made aware of the wellness area, and the room was disappointing compared to the photos

It was so tranquil, loved the location even though it was a bit of out of the way, but not too far to be a problem. The local restaurants were just over a mile down the hill. the room was just lovely, with underfloor heating, very comfortable. Livio was very friendly and the ham and bread for breakfasts were freshly... More

We spent a few days in this place in last August and we really appreciated the kindness of the owner, the cleanliness of our room, the very good breakfast and finally the quietness of the Crotto. Everything was perfect. Thank you Livio for taking care of us !

Crotto di Somana was kind of difficult to find, but we were rewarded with a spectacular view once we did. The B&B overlooks Lake Como and is surrounded by mountains to the rear. Livio, the proprietor, has a pair of horses on the property and terraced gardens, which created the feeling of absolute tranquility. Granted, my boyfriend and I stayed... More

This place must be seen to be believed. The owner and creator, Livio, is a genius who was born 500 years too late. He creates and builds as the great builders of the middle ages. He takes a cave and creates a beautiful hotel using nature to heat, and for water, and for power, and to feed his spa. It... More

We stayed here for one night after spending a day at Lake Como. It is located on the top of a hill overlooking Mandello del Lario below. We found it quite difficult to find the place using a sat nav. The Crotto was signposted although not very well, so we had to ask some locals, who pointed us in the... More

I am not used to write opinions but I decided to write one on this place because it is very nice and because the owners were so kind with us, which is not so common in these days. We stayed there three nights with our little daughter and we really enjoyed our stay in this intimate farmhouse (only three bedrooms)... More

There are three rooms (two triple rooms with a double bed and a single bed and one double room with a double sofa bed), all of them realized and furnished with an extreme care. Each room has an independent entrance and has its own bathroom with shower. The breakfast is served in a common American-type kitchen.Furthermore, the guests will have the possibility to enjoy a very suggestive wellness area, realized inside the original cave, and including Jacuzzi, sauna and a flavoured shower.
