In pole position on the lakeside, this cute little B&B is in a tranquil spot in Lezzeno, minutes from Bellagio. Bedrooms are all decked out in white, some with four-poster beds, and all have wrought-iron balconies onto Como. A decent self-service breakfast is offered, and the more-than-helpful Raffa and Constantino are always at the ready to recommend restaurants and organize activities -- it’s a great base for hiking, waterskiing, and wakeboarding. In summer there’s a 3-night minimum stay. A self-catering apartment for up to four people is also available.
