This could just be another great B&B in a picturesque setting except for Tino and his family which change it into a memorable holiday. We arrived after a hectic fortnight of touring and immediately started to unwind when the private transfer Tino had arranged collected us at Como. Our room had the most spectacular view of the lake, but I imagine they all do. The rooms are large and have a large bathroom. Breakfasts are generous and have everything you could want even for an aussie. During our stay Tino arranged bus tickets, timetables for ferries, dining suggestions, pretty much anything you could want. During our stay there was a fireworks show on the nearby island and Tino generously fed all the guests dinner and drinks that evening for no extra charge, super service! I'm still dreaming about the chicken with tuna sauce and might have to email him for the recipe! OK the property is in a small village several k's from Como or Bellagio but if you are driving or happy to catch the ferry or bus this isn't a problem, besides the gardens are lovely and you could do worse than lie around and read and relax.
