I don't know where to start! I rang the day before to see if there was a vacancy but there wasn't :(
Then Eugenio called me back a couple of hours later to say that he had found a solution. So I went there and found a very nice, cosy, comfortable room with a small and very clean and nice bathroom. Perfect!
Eugenio greeted me like an old friend and then took me sailing for the afternoon and we dined together at a local restaurant. He is a really great guy!
Next morning, mamma Mia!, the breakfast of fresh crepe (made with chestnut, buckwheat and Farro flours) breads, pastries, fruit, cappucino, cheeses, juices. This was a real breakfast not like many B&B that supply you with a supermarket pastry and bad coffee.
I think this was my best B&B experience. Grazie Mille Eugenio.

As I'm traveling around Europe I wanted to stop at Lake Como for a while and I needed a place to stay. The one I decided on couldn't be any more perfect. Especially for the price!! I payed 50 dollars and got a beautifully decorated room with an equally beautiful bathroom, a home cooked breakfast (and dinner), my LAUNDRY done (by one of Eugenio's friends...she just offered!), personal transportation to the train station, and a tour of the lake on Eugenio's boat. Not to mention that all this was done with a smile. He even let me print my boarding pass for a flight. WOW! I was also only here one day and a night. Incredible. If any experience beats this I will be surprised. I can't thank him enough for his overwhelming hospitality. Thanks Eugenio!!!

We spent one night in Lisa's and Eugenio's Bed and Breakfast, in a small but very cozy room. From the very first minute we arrived we were welcomed with a big warm smile. Lisa showed us the room and made sure we feel like home. She even encouraged us to take anything we want from the fridge in the kitchen. Next morning the most amazing breakfast was waiting on us in the kitchen. Eugenio's crepes are to not be missed! We were really sad to leave 'La Casa del Poeta' and its great hosts, they definitely made our short visit to Italy unforgettable!

We stayed 2 nts in Dervio on our way to tuscany and I chose La Casa del Poeta due to the very good price. We had a very warm welcome by the owners who gave us two of the best breakfasts we ever had on trip. The rooms are very small but clean, the bathrooms are kind of funny but OK if you are not planning a two weeks stay. We had breakfast in the kitchen of the family and they offered dark bread, very good cheese and ham (all bio stuff) as well as jam, honey and yoghurts. Emilio cooked crepes the way you want it and gave us one on top which we had for lunch (with Nutella, yam yam - thanks Emilio!)
Dervio itself is a very small village, but you find a number of restaurants and can have a swim at the lake. We can recommend La Casa del Poeta very much and will stay there any time we come back to that region.

When the ferry first pulled into Dervio, we thought that maybe we'd made a mistake and should have stayed in one of the more expensive, popular towns. We were so wrong! The town itself grew on us and we enjoyed spending time there, and there are plenty of towns nearby to visit (it's near the beautiful Varenna).

But the best thing about our stay was our host, Eugenio. Nothing was too difficult and he made sure we were comfortable and looked after us during our stay. His personally prepared breakfasts were a highlight. He also drove us to nearby locations to make our travels easier, and he gave us a tour of a beautiful nearby town.

The B&B is well located, near a bank and supermarket. The rooms are small but perfectly arranged so you don't feel cramped. Our room was also quiet, which is important for us because we're not good sleepers. We enjoyed our time here so much that we're planning to return very soon. Thanks again Eugenio! Stay here, you will not be disappointed.

We had five wonderful days in Dervio on the end of june. La Casa del Poeta is really cosy place with very very helpful and friendly host Eugenio, three lovely thematic rooms (which were cleaned every day and had all things we needed), kitchen (tasty breakfast made by Eugenio) and wonderful surroundings (eg ask about a track between Dervio and Dorio from Eugenio). We didn't rent a car, so we made short trips by train and ferry to other towns. Dervio is really peaceful place with almost no tourists, but very near to other more touristic places (Varenna and Bellagio). This way we enjoyed two different faces of lake Como.

la casa del poeta was everything that the reviews led me to expect. it was lovely to feel part of the village and to have such interesting conversation with Eugenio who is a mine of information and a thorough gentleman.. Eugenio has got his crepe recipe worked out to perfection and we thoroughly enjoyed our freshly prepared breakfasts. The room was lovely and had everything we needed truly a home from home
