Reviewed 18 June 2009

Up a narrow road with 9 sharp turns that fits no more than one car at most places, there is the beautiful B&B Il Motto ("the summit" in Italian). The B&B is located in Cremia, at the northern part of Lago Di Como (Lake Como) - an excellent base for traveling in the lake area - about 5 minute drive to Menaggio (ferries to Bellagio and a great town by itself), about 45 minutes drive to Lake Lugano and double that to Lake Maggiore.

Hosts Bruno and Anna (with their daughter Sylvia) are going out of their way to help and make you feel at home. Their English level is excellent and they have plenty of advise on local trips, hidden gems and restaurant and shopping tips.

The rooms are basic but good. The "suite" has an ensuite toilet and shower, the other 2 rooms have a private toilet and shower but in the middle floor - outside the room. For 60 Euros per night you cannot ask for more in such a prime location.

Breakfast is an upgraded continental one with fresh bread, cheese and marmalades, excellent freshly brewed coffee (made in a Makiato), some cereals and a surprise fruit each morning.

For those who are looking for a quiet and basic place for a private vacation, I am out of words in recommending B&B Il Motto.
