Hi there, it's Annamaria here! My husband and I are the proud owner of the first B&B on Lake Como, opened in 2001
great home stay with fantastic views + great facilities
- lovely , friendly couple who go out of their way to make you welcome to their home
Annamaria was extremely friendly and flexible. We were quite a bit later than we said we would arrive, and she was more then able to make that work. Her place is very nice and she made a delicious breakfast for us in the morning. The view is also great from atop the hill looking down on Lake Como
We had a wonderful stay with Annamaria B&B dell'Acqua Bianca. We know only a few Italian phrases and words, so we are delighted to have a host who speaks English so well. The view is spectacular! The breakfast is amazing. It is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. Annamaria made us feel so at home. She treated us like family, and clearly loves to host others in her home. She and Massimo answered all of our questions about places to go, and eat. She has an enormous amount of travel info available in several languages, and was more than happy to offer suggestions on activities and great places to go.
Our stay with them was very relaxing, and we'd happily go and stay with them again.
Fabulous B&B with a view of Lake Como.
This is a true B & B with a room and breakfast supplied - and what a breakfast! Without doubt the best breakfast we had the whole trip - too many things to name, but we had yoghurt, fruit, cheese, bread, cake, jam, cereal, tea. All with Annamaria's wonderful friendly service.
The room is large and comfortable with a big bathroom and tea/coffee making in the room.
There is a parking space.
The B & B is high up on the hill and is in a quiet area, but you have to drive to get to restaurants or shops in the town.
We only had a one night stopover on our way fro the Dolomites to the Cinque Terre which was a shame as we would have liked to explore the area more.
Annemarie and her husband were so lovely and helpful, it is a really cosy, homely place to stay.
We really enjoyed our quick stay with Annamaria. We should have had more time, but got there later than we had planned. The view from our bedroom was beautiful!! We would suggest trying to get there in the daylight hours. It was a bit hard to find in the dark. Annamaria is a wonderful and generous host. She made us feel right at home. Again, we would return if we have more time!
Excellent place to stay. The extensive breakfast with a view over the lake and the mountains alone is worth the somewhat long and steep, but very nice, walk up from Mandello. (Luckily Annamaria will pick you up from the station with your luggage when you arrive without your own transportation.)
Beautiful view from the room we had, very good breakfast, and warm and knowlegeable host: usefull travel siggestions from Annamaria.
Absolutely perfect stay. Annamaria was beyond helpful- she picked me up and dropped me off at the train station and boat terminal. The room was so lovely with a great view over the river. Thank you!
Cette chambre à proximité du lac de Côme est très agréable, spacieuse et offre une très belle vue sur le lac. L'accueil d'Annamaria et de son époux était très chaleureux. Le petit déjeuner, servi sur le balcon avec vue sur le lac, était copieux. Je recommande donc la location de cette chambre si vous recherchez un petit coin paisible pour un séjour reposant.
Response from Annamaria:
merci, a la prochaine!!
Wonderful place! beautiful location next to the montains, perfect room, beautiful view, extremely welcoming and friendly hosts, awesome breakfeast... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
Annamaria is full of joy and laughter. I loved having her around.
She is the reason that Airbnb continues to be so rewarding. I feel so lucky to have met her. She was the perfect guest.
Annamaria was a great guest. We would be happy to host her again in the future.
Annamaria and her family were wonderful guests. They are incredibly open and friendly and always had big smiles. It was a pleasure to host them.
Anna is truly one of a kind host. Very open and welcoming, with a wealth of information about the area around Lake Como that can only come from someone who's lived there all their life. If you're looking for a clean and comfortable place with a host that will welcome you into their home with many stories about the area, this is the place for you.
