About This Listing
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. If you arrive by train, we can pick you up by car from the train station of Mandello or Abbadia Lariana.
The part of the house given over to the B&B has been sensitively restored and has the character of an old country house, complete with a balcony with views over the lake. The two rooms have private bathrooms. In summer you can have your breakfast served on the terrace in the garden.
A few kilometers away is the town of Varenna, where boats depart for the lake. The whole area is known for the famous mountain "Grigna", a wonderful place for walking and climbing. If you enjoy motorcycles, be sure to visit the museum of Guzzi motorcycle. Abbadia is the perfect place to swim: there are no private homes that overlook the beautiful beach.
I use airbnb for about one year and I really like the website: contact me for any information and I will be happy to answer!
This was quite simply the best B&B we stayed in during our vacation to Italy. It was the perfect place to kick back and relax after touring the cities. The breakfast was unbelievable, the room was beautiful and clean (great view from the balcony!), and the property was immaculate. Nadia and her husband went above and beyond to make our stay second to none.
This was simply one of the best accomodation we have ever stayed. Our room was lovely decorated and Nadia is one of the kindliest hosts we have ever met. She was always there to help us if we had questions, even with the help of the other family members. The breakfast was awesome as well, especially for an italian breakfast.
Keep up your awesome work. This B&B is amazing!
We had a fantastic time staying at the Walnut Tree and couldn't have found a better location for our honeymoon. It is a beautiful house that was lovingly restored by the owners and is overlooking the lake with the mountains in the background. Nadia was the most welcoming host, making delicious breakfast and full of suggestions for day itineraries. The place on the more tranquil side of the lake was a perfect base for exploring the area of Lake Como and nearby mountains with easy access and ferry connections to the other side of the lake. We would book anytime again!
Notre séjour de 3 nuits au lac de Côme a été parfait grâce à Nadia, qui est une hôte très sympathique, prenant soin des visiteurs. Les chambres sont spacieuses, propres et coquettes. Le petit-déjeuner est copieux et bon.
Nadia nous a donné de vrais bons conseils que ce soit pour les restaurants, les visites ou les balades à vélo.
Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour au lac de Come grâce à Nadia! La chambre est très spacieuse ainsi que la salle de bain. La literie très confortable. Le balcon devant la chambre permet de profiter d'une belle vue sur le lac de Come. La demeure a été entièrement restaurée par Nadia et son mari, et est plein de charme et très bien décorée. Pour ceux qui aime les belles pierres, n"hésitez pas! Sans oublier les petit-déjeuners incroyables de Nadia!
It was a truly marvelous stay at the Walnut. We enjoyed every minute of it. The breakfast was fantastic (so cute and so much variety), the room so so romantic and the view from the balcony breathtaking! We went there in autumn and still had brilliant weather and Nadia gave us so many ideas of what to do that we could have filled a stay four times the duration of ours. Thank you!
Before you book this, know that you should have a rental car and GPS! It is not convenient for walking or public transport. However, with a rental car, it is an easy 15 minute drive to the ferries and hot spots in Lake Como.
The house is an amazing restoration of a 300 year old stone building, and Nadia and her family give you an authentic dose of Italian life and hospitality. Nadia goes out of her way to help, including driving us to a restaurant one night so we could properly enjoy the wine. I can't say enough about her and would absolutely stay here or at her authentic, rustic mountain cabin...ask her about it! The breakfast lives up to everyone's reviews, and you get an experience here that you could not get just renting someone's place.
