B&B Villa Le Ortensie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 July 2011

We had a fabulous 4 days in Villa Ortensie. Bernadette and Dino are the most gracious hosts. Bernadett's cooking was wonderful using fresh local produce. The Gorganzola was to die for. It is a 10 min scenic walk from the car park which is good exersise after all the food you eat in Italy. Our room was spacious, clean and blissfully quiet. Breakfast on the terrace with magnificant views over Lake Como is a great way to start the day, why would you want to leave? We stayed as a couple.

The villa Le Ortensie is located in an old village of Molina di Faggeto Lario, which sits app. 3 km off the main tourist track, happily ignoring the passing of time. Everything in Molina seems to be made of stone: the narrow streets, the stairs, the buildings and fences; however, this little village is far from cold or dreary. It is a very quiet, undisturbed, full of character place, and friendly locals make you feel welcome. Make sure to explore Molina, including those luscious hills that surround it.

Molina's remote location means that hiring a car will give you more flexibility. Get the smallest car on offer, because the roads around Lake Como are VERY narrow. Otherwise, take a photo of a bus timetable as soon as you arrive and buy few tickets from Bar Itipitipici next to the carpark. It will save you the hassle later. If you come by car, you will need to leave it in one of the carparks on each side of the main road. Only few local cars can squeeze through the narrow streets of Molina. One of those belongs to Angelo, who will take care of your luggage and show you the way to Le Ortensie. Angelo is a quirky, cheerful and unforgettable character.

The villa Le Ortensie is younger than the village itself, and we loved everything about it: the vintage beauty of the building and interiors, beautiful gardens and clean, comfortable rooms and facilities – and of course, the VIEWS. Tasty breakfasts in a cosy dining room, and an option for having delicious dinners cooked on the premises and served on the terrace by our wonderful hostess Bernadette, put Le Ortensie on top of our favourite places we stayed in.

Apart from yummy food (including freshly-baked cakes), Bernadette will also offer you helpful tips about attractions of Lake Como and beyond (she knows Venice very well too), in Italian, French and continuously improving English.

There is no shortage of places to stay around Lake Como, but we'll be going back to Molina and Le Ortensie, because four nights were not long enough to fully appreciate their beauty and tranquillity...

Room Tip: Book early and hire a very small car.

Bernadette and Dino were perfect hosts, warm knowledgeable and attentive.
The room had a fantastic view across the Lake and had a delightful mixture of rustic furniture
The access might not be suitable for less mobile people but the short uphill walk through the village is what makes the location special. Angelino the 83 year old bag moving gentleman who lives nearby is a real treasure!
You will not want to leave...

Room Tip: Upper floor with balcony and en suite has the view

We stay 3 nights and besides the longish walk into the place, the location is quiet and serene with fabulous views. Bernadette was an amazing host, great breakfasts and little extras (like some simple ord'houvres) one evening for my wife and myself to have with our wine- recommended if you want get away from the hustle and bussle.

Le Ortensie is a beautifull B&B, very typical and well located between como and Bellaggio. Bernadette is a great cook and you can plan meal for a good price every evening. Dishes are very tasty and portion are huge. The service is very nice despite a low level of english.
Very nice place and people to meet defintly if you plan to stay in this area.

The marvellous authentic house is located at the end of a village on the slope along the Como Lake so you have a wonderful view. We didn't bother we had to walk 10 minutes from the village parkingplace up to the house. As we were packed light we didn't need the 'shuttle' to carry the luggage. The setting and the house itself are of a stunning authenticity you find yourself back in 'les années folles'. We stayed 2 times 1 night on our way to Umbria and back and had different room: the family-room on the 'groundfloor' which is very quiet and the 'Lagio'room on the 1st floor which is rather noisy. Both rooms have a spectacular view over the Como Lake. The welcome was very warm and the hosts are speaking French and English, The rooms are very charming and tastefully decorated but the beds were a bit to firm for us. Breakfast was all we wanted. Yes we want to go back!

Room Tip: Make an early reservation!
