The Space

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 (email hidden) 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.

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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had an absolutely wonderful time at Lake Como and one of the biggest reasons was Nadia. She and Juliano and children welcomed us into their home and made us feel like family. Their home is rustic and charming, lovingly restored by Juliano. Our accommodations were so cozy and the shower nothing short of amazing. And then there were Nadia's breakfasts. Fruit, yogurt, fresh milk, meats and cheeses, juice and coffee, a sampling of bread plus a homemade cake, pudding or tiramisu. All this plus cloth napkins and fresh flowers.
    Much of the charm comes from Nadia's personality. She is full of warmth, laughs easily and aside from Italian speaks fluent English and Spanish. She also knows the area intimately and recommended places to visit that were off the beaten path. Needless to say, we loved our stay at The Walnut Tree.

  • The Walnut Tree is the perfect location for a visit to the Lake Como area. Beautiful apartment in a peaceful setting away from the crowds. Nadia is an incredible host. She made us a plate of pasta after our long journey from the States, helped us settle in to her wonderful home and gave us all the help we could want for planning our vacation. The breakfast Nadia lovingly made each morning was the best we had in all of Italy. The train and boat are about a 20 minute walk of 5 minute drive away. Highly recommended!

  • One of the best Bnbs we have stayed in!! Thank you so much Nadia for making us feel so welcome and at home. Such a beautiful place to stay in Lake Como with lovely views over the Lake. And as other reviews stated, the breakfasts are to die for!! Nadia is a fantastic cook, the tiramisu she made us on our last day was to die for!
    On our first night, after driving 12 hours, Nadia was so kind to give us champagne on arrival and she even booked us in for dinner at the local restaurant, only 2 minutes walk away. Beautiful, local, Italian food.
    I cannot reccomend staying here enough. Thanks so much Nadia for looking after us, we loved staying with you. :)

  • We were four friends staying at The Walnut Tree and had the most fantastic time there!
    Nadia and Juliano are such kind and welcoming hosts - they greeted us with aperitivo on our terrace overlooking the lake, and gave us some great tips for things to do and places to eat. Nadia had arranged a table for us at a nearby restaurant Sali e Tabacchi for delicious regional food and wine - even providing a chaperone to direct. The next night Nadia suggested Quatro Pass in Varenna for their infamous lake fish risotto - delicious again.
    The location is ideal for exploring the area and the cottage itself is beautiful; with a lake view, comfy beds and a great shower.
    Words can't do justice to Nadia's amazing breakfasts - five courses of delicious fresh and home-made treats served in the garden.
    Our stay here was the highlight of our holiday and we really can't recommend it enough.
    Thank you so much Nadia - We're already planning to come back!

  • Wir haben einige Tage bei Nadia und Gustavo in ihrem wunderschönen BnB verbracht. Dieses mit viel Charme eingerichtete Haus war mal eine Ruine, wie uns unsere Gastgeber zeigten. Was die beiden da selbst erschaffen haben ist ein kleines Paradies: Details im Garten und in den Zimmer pfiffige Lösungen ... wir waren immer wieder überrascht.
    Dazu kommt die grossartige Gastfreundschaft, die weit über ein normales Beerben hinausgeht - Vom Frühstück ganz zu schweigen.
    Ganz herzlichen Dank

  • We had a great time at Nadia's B&B. This place is such a lovely spot with rustic Italian charm! Nadia was a great host and was so helpful in planning our time in Lake Como. She is also quite the cook and went above and beyond for her breakfasts. I highly recommend staying here, and will certainly go back the next time we're in Lake Como.

  • Nadia is the perfect host! We stayed at The Walnut Tree for the first two nights of our honeymoon and it is beautiful - the building itself is stunning and our room was lovely (and spotless). Nadia welcomed us with cheese, salami, bread and beer (all much needed after a long journey) and was very happy to help us with dinner recommendations and things to do during our short stay. The breakfasts are phenomenal! We were extremely well looked after and would love to visit again, thank you Nadia.

  • Nous avons passé un moment complètement magique chez (website hidden) maison est accueillante, pleine de charme et on s'y sent immédiatement chez soi. Le fait d'être un peu en hauteur permet d'avoir une très belle vue sur le lac de Côme et d'explorer une partie un peu moins touristique du lac. Nadia et sa famille sont absolument adorables et nous ont aidé pour chacune de nos demandes avec gentillesse et entrain. Les petits-déjeuners de Nadia sont quant à eux gravés à jamais dans nos mémoires...Une chose est sûre, on n'a plus envie de partir une fois qu'on y a mis un pied. Un moyen parfait pour débuter ses vacances en douceur dans un cadre idyllique.

  • The Walnut Tree B & B was the most beautiful, relaxing, wonderful place to stay. Nadia, the host, was so helpful and kind. The highlight was prosecco and cheese on arrival! The breakfast was an absolute feast - artfully presented and delicious. I didn't want to leave at all. Thank you so much Nadia for such a wonderful visit to Lake como, you made it very special for us!

    Highly recommended to everyone, probably the best B & B I have ever stayed in!
