“Unique B&B on Lake Como”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Relais Villa Nina is a very individually designed B&B in a 1900s villa on the lakeside which offers just 3 rooms (1 self catering in courtyard). We had the "suite" which was enormous and included a beautiful large bathroom and balconies overlooking the lake and the garden/terrace which is accessible via a bridge over the road. The owners were very attentive and breakfast each morning was taken at one table with the other guests of the 2nd room in the house - all very convivial. Restaurants and the ferry landing stage were about 10 mins walk away (along narrow road - only drawback) but this added to the feeling of being away from the madding crowd. It was a joy to stay there.

Room Tip: The suite for the views and fabulous bathroom!

Federico and Claudia were delightful hosts and our accommodations were nice. They provided great local tourist information and insight that added to our trip. The gardens and setting are beautiful and a peaceful haven in a lovely place. Also provided fantastic breakfast! We definitely recommend!

This place belongs to these hidden gems that you would like to keep for yourself - because they are just perfect!
Villa Nina house is beautiful and has been renovated with great taste by the owners - mixing design and traditional elements. The views over the Lake in the garden are splendid and are an invitation to relaxation. We stayed in the Palm Tree room, which was fine but we would like to book the room with Lake views for next time.
Breakfast was delicious, with a wide choice of fresh and local products.
Most importantly - the hosts are very attentive to details and welcoming. You can easily tell that they love their house and their region, and would like to share this with their guests.
Location: great, midway between Como and port to visit Bellagio.

We would definitely stay at Villa Nina Relais again.

Room Tip: I'd definitely recommend the room with views over the lake.

My wife and I stayed at Villa Nina for 4 days and had a wonderful time. The Villa itself is wonderful - great view, deck on the Lake, lawn. Very comfortable, quiet and relaxed - beautiful place. More importantly, Federico and Claudia were terrific hosts - super helpful, fun and simply gracious and kind. Look forward to returning and recommend Villa Nina wholeheartedly!

Room Tip: Stayed in the Palm room, as the Lake room was unavailable. Palm room was excellent and had good vie...

The villa's location in a quiet small town was ideal for exploring the lake and avoids the more congested cities along Lake Como. Local restaurants are walking distance. The suite overlooking the lake is highly recommended. The owner's of this elegant villa, Federica and Claudia, were delightful hosts and very helpful. We enjoy hiking and they provided much guidance on the trails. The hike to Mt San Primo offered a spectacular view of the entire lake.

We spent an exceptional week at Villa Nina in February 2013 . Dated back to 1904, the Villa has been renovated by the owners, Federico and Claudia, with good taste and special attention to fine details. Our large suite overlooked the Como lake. The bedroom is large and decorated with fine taste. The two balconies and big windows overlook the beautiful Lake Como. The bathroom is huge and modern.The place is well kept and has special atmosphere - paradise on earth. The breakfast is excellent, served in a quiet atmosphere. Above all: Federico and Claudia make you feel at home, while away from home! .They were helpful and provided assistance in choosing fine restaurants, special shops and sites to visit. We could stay there for ever!

Room Tip: The suite facing the lake is just fantastic!
