“Italian tradition from the outside - modern inside”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

This small house is situated in a small village just on the shore of the lake. You can almost jump into the lake from your balcony. The house is completely renovated inside and well-functioning. Very friendly owners and good breakfast. Arrival is possible by car (narrow road), by bus or by boat. The place is perfect for a shorter holiday. There are two restaurants within walking distance from the house

This was certainly one of if not THE best part of our Italian holiday. Within minutes of our arrival and our warm and generous welcome, we decided to extend our 3 day stay to 5 and if we had not prebooked at another city we could have stayed quite happily even longer.Costantino and Raffaella were superb hosts. They could not do enough for us and treated us like family. Nothing seemed too much of an effort for them and they smoothed our way each day with helpful hints and practical assistance. Lezzeno is a delightful town with wonderful restaurants and the B&B is minutes from the ferry and the bus stop is right at the front. I truly hope this is not our last visit here and I have no hesitation in recommending this sweet little nest to anyone interested in making the most of Lake Como. Rino and Judith from Australia

Room Tip: We were lucky to have the top floor studio apartment that gave us plenty of room with lounge and din...

Great little place on the edge of the waters Of Lake Como. Hosts are wonderful and make one feel welcome from the start. Rooms are clean, modern and lovely furnished with the owner's artwork.
Breakfasts are amazingly plentiful with much choice. Lovely town on the lake. Convenient and super friendly.

'Nest on the lake' is the perfect location to stay while visiting Lake Como, only minutes drive from Bellagio. It is beautifully situated on the lake and has it's own private beach. The owners are the perfect hosts and make you feel very much at home. It is a great place to stay, my husband and I highly recommend this B&B

My only complaint or disappointment with Nest on the Lake is we only reserved 2 days there and wish we could have stayed longer! After a week of traveling from New York to Italy to visit family for part of the trip and then to Florence and Venice, which were both beautiful in their own way but very touristy, Nest on the Lake was the definite surprise "bonus" to our trip. Tino and Rafaella were wonderful hosts with many suggestions of what to do. Breakfast was above any continental breakfast that we had anywhere. The accommodations were beautiful. I traveled with 2 other families, as well as my 16-year-old son, one was a family of 4 and the other was a family of 3, and all of the rooms were perfect size for all of our needs. The view from our room was magnificent, even during a storm which we encountered one of the days. My son and his cousins got to kayak and swim which was a nice treat during a very hot spell. As others have said, it is a very romantic place for couples but also a great place for families as well. I would recommend this to anyone who is planning a trip...just make sure you add more time...you will be sorry if you don't!

Nest on the Lake is a very clean and romantic place but its still ideal for families to go since it has a small private beach and monitoring of children can be easily done. Breakfast was amazing they offered great choice and really fresh. The family who run the place are really helpful and they gave us tip of how to travel, places we should visit and named for us some nearby shops. We had an apartment and so we had a kitchen too. We used to buy all the groceries from a nearby grocer which had everything we needed, we used to make romantic dinners in the balcony which has an amazing view during the night. Parking is not big problem too since this accommodation has 4 private parking for its customers. The only problem we had was during the night since this place don't have air conditioned rooms and sometimes during the summer nights we used to feel the heat since we did not use to open every window because of the insects that used to enter during the night, since this location is in the mountains. Those who have a fear of spiders this place is not good for them however I solved the problem by buying from the nearby grocer an insect killer spray which I used to apply just before we leave the apartment for the day to visit other nearby places. I used to spray in every room including the bathroom. The apartment was very well kept and things were like new. This insect problem is in every place which is near mountains so its not just this accommodation, you are going to have the same problem in all the places nearby. Nearby restaurant have amazing food too for those who like to have a wonderful dinner and shopping is also not a problem in Bellagio. Those who prefer an adventure, this is the place them. This family let you borrow their f Bicycles or even canoes. We took a canoe and went to the island opposite this accommodation, it was a nice adventure! Sunbeds are also available here too. You should try this place :)

Three nights at Nest on the Lake were not enough. Constantino and Rafaella were superb hosts, with a perfect B&B. Yes, you really are treated like part of the family. While I had chosen apartments for most of our 4 week trip, Nest on the Lake had the best location to explore Lake Como. Summer is hot, so plan to go for a swim in the lake. We rented a Smart Car in Milan, drove around Lake Como and into Switzerland, and then down to Venice.

Ciao

Room Tip: The lake view is a must! We stayed on the second floor.
