We echo all of the previous excellent reviews of the Book Nest. We had a lovely stay, made exceptional by Paolo and Rosanna's kindness and attention to detail. We also had the pleasure of meeting Federico and other members of the family, as our stay was over the Ferragosto holida…

I can't say enough about the amazing experience we had at The Book Nest. It was the absolute PERFECT romantic getaway for our 2nd honeymoon. Rosanna and Paolo are the best hosts - so thoughtful and always concerned about our comfort and well-being. The home itself is small and qu…

We felt twice at home with Elizabeth and David, wonderful hosts, and we shared with them the love for the wonderful views ( been the Come lake or Colorado mountains ) and the good food. We look forward to spend here your next celebration... between the kitchen and the pool! Paolo and Rossana

I have to say that I knew this was going to a great space and was really looking forward to Lake Como. That being said, all of my expectations were blown away. Our hosts made us feel more than welcome every moment of our stay. The property is amazing! From the moment the fi…

Rob and his sweet wife have been the last hosts in our first AirBnB summer, and before their arrival we were a little worried: what’s the best way to host Americans from the Windy City, Chicago? What will be their expectations about their stay in Lake Como? When they landed off the taxi and turned the corner of our house ( “ La Puerta of the lake” courtesy of Rob ) we understood there wouldn’t’ be any problem, because we talked the same language and shared the same emotions. Looking at Rob in the sunrise wandering in the garden, grateful to life in front of the mountains while we were workin’ at our desks really touched us and told us AirBnB is something more than an earning opportunity: it may be a cultural and emotional adventure. Rob and his wife are free from stereotypes, a couple happy, smart and above all they recognize the true love: for people, for animals , for books. Maybe we’ll not see again, but we’ll write each other a lot. If you are truly AirBnB hosts, don’t’let this couple run away. Rossana & Paolo

The Book Nest is a lovely cozy getaway, the place is quiet and beautiful but you can also get to the restaurants and the famous Villa Del Balbianello easily by car or by foot. Paolo and his wife Rossana were such delightful and welcome hosts and we definitely hope to see them aga…

A lovely quiet, scenic and atmospheric little hideaway. Much better to be away from the road and bar noise and general bustle you get when paying a premium to stay in central Lenno. Worth the 5-10min walk from town. We were spoiled with fresh home made local food and locally so…

This place is an absolute gem! Not only is the accommodation in a quiet part of Lenno, but it's also private and away from the main house, with the most spectacular views of Lake Como. We couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful the location is! The accommodation has all the bas…
