La Casa del Poeta
Ranked #1 of 6 Dervio B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 15, 2013

When the ferry first pulled into Dervio, we thought that maybe we'd made a mistake and should have stayed in one of the more expensive, popular towns. We were so wrong! The town itself grew on us and we enjoyed spending time there, and there are plenty of towns nearby to visit (it's near the beautiful Varenna).

But the best thing about our stay was our host, Eugenio. Nothing was too difficult and he made sure we were comfortable and looked after us during our stay. His personally prepared breakfasts were a highlight. He also drove us to nearby locations to make our travels easier, and he gave us a tour of a beautiful nearby town.

The B&B is well located, near a bank and supermarket. The rooms are small but perfectly arranged so you don't feel cramped. Our room was also quiet, which is important for us because we're not good sleepers. We enjoyed our time here so much that we're planning to return very soon. Thanks again Eugenio! Stay here, you will not be disappointed.

We had five wonderful days in Dervio on the end of june. La Casa del Poeta is really cosy place with very very helpful and friendly host Eugenio, three lovely thematic rooms (which were cleaned every day and had all things we needed), kitchen (tasty breakfast made by Eugenio) and wonderful surroundings (eg ask about a track between Dervio and Dorio from Eugenio). We didn't rent a car, so we made short trips by train and ferry to other towns. Dervio is really peaceful place with almost no tourists, but very near to other more touristic places (Varenna and Bellagio). This way we enjoyed two different faces of lake Como.

la casa del poeta was everything that the reviews led me to expect. it was lovely to feel part of the village and to have such interesting conversation with Eugenio who is a mine of information and a thorough gentleman.. Eugenio has got his crepe recipe worked out to perfection and we thoroughly enjoyed our freshly prepared breakfasts. The room was lovely and had everything we needed truly a home from home

The B&B is easily accessible, well located, close to the lake and the main services (bank, grocery shop), with outdoor car parking.
The double room is clean, pretty, quiet, free WiFi, with a balcony where you can admire the mountains.
Breakfast is offered with typical products, the Eugenio's crepes are fantastic.
It's nice having enjoyable conversations with Annalisa and Eugenio, they are very familiar with the surrounding places and restaurants.

We have already booked for another weekend in August, so...better than this!:)

It was like getting home, but in Italy. in Como Lake. :) which I think is the best way to travel, and stay in a place where you find a very friendly staff with a warming welcome.
Thanks Eugenio and Filomena for receiving us and for the great breakfast. We will be back for sure.

My family and I stayed here for the weekend and not recommend this B&B more highly. Located in the historic centre of Dervio in a house that has obviously recently been beautifully restored it was charming. Yet also only a few minutes walk to the lake it offered a perfect location. Eugenio was most hospitable and great with our kids and also had a wealth of information on "what to do, where to go" etc etc. I hope we will be back soon, and for longer next time!
