Reviewed August 20, 2012

Beautiful place, gorgeous view, lovely hosts - altogether an exceptional experience. We stayed in the suite which is a truly amazing room with an even more amazing bathroom and a little private terrace. We especially liked to stay at the lake on the soft meadow in the tree shade. What a rare privilege to spent time in such a perfect environment. Thank you!

My wife & I spent 8 wonderful nights at Villa Nina in late June - 1 in the Palm Tree Room & 7 in the Suite of the Lake. The latter was stunning covering the whole width of the house, with a very large bathroom , 2 balconies & fantastic views of Lake Como. Federico, Claudia & son Jonathon were great hosts & went out of their way to help - Federico recommended & made restaurant bookings for us in nearby villages & both he and Claudia were most helpful with suggestions of places of interest to visit. Federico took us on a guided lake tour on his boat one evening which was interesting and informative.As can be seen from the photos on the website their lovely home is set amongst lovely gardens with a grassed area over ihe road on the edge of the lake & a large wooden deck with umbrelas & lounges next to it The breakfasts were very good with local fresh produce each morning. We walked to the nearby villages of Moltrasio and Carate Urio (15-20 minutes & 10-15 minutes respectively (depending on your walking ability) where there are very good restaurants and the closest Ferry Wharves, which we enjoyed, particularly after a good meal . We had a car but found it too difficult to park in these villages. Our stay here was a very special part of our holiday. Recommended.

We stayed here to end our honeymoon. The suite of the lake was gorgeous with 2 balconies overlooking Lake Como. Comfortable, clean and quiet, the villa was lovely with a fantastic decking area out by the private jetty. Federico was extremely helpful in organising wakeboarding for us and took us on a lovely guided boat trip to see some of the amazing villas. I would highly recommend Villa Nina.

Room Tip: The suite of the lake has the most amazing bathroom!

My husband and I spent five nights at this delightful B&B and couldn't have been more pleased. The location was perfect for touring the entire area around Lake Como. The owners were very helpful in every way. They arranged transportation, made restaurant reservations and gave us helpful suggestions for sightseeing. My husband cycled with the owner, Frederico, several days and had the time of his life. If you want to experience Italy like an Italian, this is the place for you. Don't pass on taking the boat ride around the lake with Frederico. That was my favorite experience of the five days!

This lovelly B&B was a really good choice and we can highly recommend it.
With its private porch where you can easily access lake Como it is the perfect location for relaxation and sports.
The hosts Claudia and Federico where very kind; seems that they are absolutely passionate about what they are doing. They are offering great insights and tips.

We had the "suite of the lake" - just lovelly! Great view, tasteful interior design and a large, wonderful bath room.

Breakfast is much better than you what you normally get in Italy. They had a variety of local products such as jam, cheese, dairy and much more - molto bene!

No doubt - we will be back soon.

What a great experience, what a great couple! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nothing was too much for Federico and Claudia and they were more than willing to go out of their way for us.

They do care for their guests.

Claudia checked for us the ferry timetable (we were entering the high season) and walked with us to the ferry dock. She took care of our reservation at the restaurant Acqua Dolce.

Federico drove us to Cernobbio to Villa d'Este as we were staying there after our great experience at Villa Nina.

Villa Nina is so great and with such A VIEW. It was the wisteria blooming season and it gives such a paradise taste to Villa Nina !!

This is the perfect place to discover Como Lake. The atmosphere and the kindness of Claudia and Federico make you feel at home.

I cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms in their house. We stayed in the double room and had a look at the SuiteK Bot...
