The Walnut Tree B & B is located in Zana, a hamlet in the upper part of Abbadia Lariana on the eastern shore of Lake Como. We are one hour away from Milan, 2 and a half km away from Mandello del Lago and 3 km away from Abbadia Lariana. I suggest to arrive by car, otherwise If you arrive by train, we can pick you up by car from the train station of Mandello or Abbadia Lariana.
“My friend and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Nadia’s gorgeous home! The house has been stunningly restored by her husband and feels very rustic and quaint. We were greeted by Nadia’s daughter Emma who offered us a coffee after our journey and gave us tips on where to go in Mandello. The breakfasts everyday were absolutely incredible - croissants, bread with ricotta and homemade fig jam, scrambled eggs, yoghurt and nectarine plus delicious juices and coffee. Nadia very kindly invited us to dinner with the whole family and a local friend where she cooked a delicious traditional fish from the lake plus an array of salads! Her family were all very kind and welcoming - we loved getting to know them all and will certainly keep in touch! Nadia was very generous with her time and gave us lots of tips for the Lake Como area. On the last day she told us about a beautiful hike to a waterfall. We would highly recommend this place to anyone! As Nadia’s place is very rural we would advise hiring a car. Thanks Nadia and family!”

“Well furnished and comfortable B&B set in a historical building and village overlooking Lake Como. It gives you all the feel of being in old Italy without any lack of comfort. The breakfast every morning was included in the price and exceptional. It included a croissant per person, some bread, some yoghurt, homemade jam, local honey, Italian bread, eggs, cheese, ham, a fruit basked and outstanding coffee all served freshly right to your table. It is located a brief car ride to Varenna from where you can get a Car Ferry to the popular cities of Bellagio and Menaggio (definitely worth a visit). Only improvement could be some more exact guidance on where one can park but once you get a lay of the area it's alright (there's two lots where ca 10-20 Cars fit nearby).”

“We had a wonderful week at Marco‘s place! Starting with his warm welcome, the helpful advice and the friendly gestures we felt 100% at home! Marco was there for all our questions giving us the best tips for dinner and travels. You can feel that he really loves the house and to take good care of his guests. Lago di Como, specially Bellagio, is a really nice area. We had a car and would recommend it to visit as much as you can in this nice area, but there is also a bus stop close to the house. In the current COVID19 situation, Marco followed the Corona Rules in all aspects: everything was super clean, he gave us masks, gloves, disinfectant and other hygiene products. We felt absolutely safe! The sofa bed makes the room very cozy and is still comfortable enough for two persons. The view from the terrace is truly amazing! Thank you, Marco, for the great time we had at your house! We gonna miss Aperitivo with the breathtaking view from your terrace! All the best for you and your family! Semjon & Hannah”
