This is a charming rustic farmhouse, a short drive from Lake Como (if you go the opposite way to our sat-nav, which took us all around the mountain villages, rather than along the shores of the lake then up, but nevermind). The owners were lovely. One spoke English really well, the other a man didn't, but we still managed to communicate in our own fun way. There are goats, dogs, chickens, donkeys here and wonderful orchards growing their own food, much of it makes its way into their food. The view over the mountains is divine. The food, homecooked and rustic, is one of the highlights of my holiday. The room is basic, but comfortable. Do not expect the standards of a chain hotel in terms of a sparkling surroundings, (but saying that it is very clean, just not uniformly sterile). I would thoroughly recommend this charming place.
