“A unique and unforgettable place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

We cannot recommend this place enough. An amazing value B & B with completely unique decoration and friendly and welcoming hosts in Marcella, Franco and family. We had the pleasure of staying at Il Torchio recently for just a two night stay but in that short time we recieved wonderful hospitality, advice and information on the local area, great home-cooked food and even a lift and pick up from the local station when we didn't want to use our car to drive to Milan. Our room was full of antique furniture and decorations, pictures and other curios. Even the bathroom, though a little on the small side as is built in to the room, was fantastic in its unique deco.

All in all a completely unique and unforgettable stay.

Great people and experience staying wth Marcella, Franco and family. Loved every bit of it except the mosquitos in the lakes area. Will go back again without doubt!

Rooms clean, beds comfortable and rooms cluttered with art and collections but very interesting. Owners wonderful, friendly and food and breakfast best we have had in Italy. Dinner option is worth taking, as all food regional delicacies prepared by excellent chef Marcella , and available at 20 Euros per person including wine and coffee and an aperitif if you are good!

Location out of way of larger towns but central to visiting all the lakes and cities in Lombardy, so good for touring. Central Lecco better than than the guidebooks describe and good for shopping.
Varenna nicest town to visit, but be aware of raw sewage polution in sea and beach in town below Hotel Royal Victoria!!!
Eat locally at the La Porta restaurant in riverside village of Brivio, only 10 minutes away, for a bargain fixed price of 11 Euros per person choosing the fixed price 'Menu Fisso' for 3 dishes including wine and coffee, food very good as well! Only valid Monday to Friday and Saturday lunch.

Room Tip: Room 2 had great views over the nearby hills, but ask for some of the drawers to be emptied if you a...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2011

We stayed for 7 nights, and were welcomed by the whole family. We particularly enjoyed Marcela's delicious suppers. Our room had magnificent views and we were able to relax in the peace and quiet of lovely surroundings. We were advised about places to visit and of how to take the train into Milan, this is essential as roads are busy and parking would be impossible! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
