“Wonderful Nest”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

My partner and I stayed here for 7 nights in room overlooking the beautiful Lake Como and had a wonderful time. Tino arranged for us to be collected at Milan airport . We were greeted very well and offered wine and beer which was very welcome. As stated in previous reviews Tino is a fantastic host, so knowledgeable, friendly and amusing, nothing was too much trouble for him even supplying ice for my sprained foot!!. The Nest is spotlessly clean and well maintained, breakfast very good with plenty to choose from. Kayaks are supplied for a paddle around the lake. We would certainly recommend staying at The Nest on the Lake if you are hoping to Lake Como. Thanks Tino and Rafaella

If you're looking for a spot to get away from it all, this is it. Away from the hustle and bustle and crowds and tourists. We came by train, 50 min. bus ride, and then 200 m by foot. Doable, and worth it. Great and helpful host, big spread of a breakfast, and loved the clean, first floor apartment we had with kitchen. Bunk in bedroom with queen bed as well as fold out couch which wasn't that comfy, though. View is truly amazing. Swing on the swing and let the hours go by. Walking distance to great restaurants and the ferry. Thoroughly enjoyed using the kayaks Tino has. Lake Como is very beautiful. Clear water. Would go back and spend more time for sure.

Room Tip: There are steps, so if that is a problem, this may not be for you. Breakfast downstairs on main leve...

This was our second trip to Nest on the Lake, first being our anniversary. Costantino (the owner) is an awesome guy, who you can relax with and enjoy a drink as you overlook the majestic Lake Como. He runs the B&B with his wife, Raffaela, who is also a great host. Since coming back in 2011, they have updated their units even further, provide quality breakfast, and its location is the best for shooting off to different parts of the lake.

What we loved most was the view from the yard, and just hearing the waves crashing on the beach, as this B&B is located ON THE WATER. You can walk down the steps, take one of their kayaks, or just go for a dip. Has spectacular views and calming/soothing sounds.

I joked that I wanted to permanently move in. Great place.

Room Tip: I would book at room with a balcony, more private.

What a special place this was! Spotless, spacious, and a view to die for. Very gracious hosts and lovely breakfast. Swans preening, waves lapping.....so sad we only had 2 nights but will hopefully revisit. Great pasta and pizza at the Aurora Restaurant.

Room Tip: All rooms have views of the lake

Ohhhh I can't say enough about this place. We stayed in one of the apartments they have to rent. These would be great for families visiting since there are beds for kids inside too. Has The owners were wonderful. They stayed with us for our first hour there and talked about the area since it was pouring rain outside and suggested things to do. Since we couldn't get out to enjoy the area they were more then happy to sell us a bottle of wine so that we could sit and watch the rain on the lake and relax.
The view from this B & B is spectacular. We will be going back.
Breakfast had a wide range of items to pick from and you can sit out on the patio and enjoy the view. Fresh fruit, meat, cheeses, yogurt, breads, muffins, cakes, etc.
Also there was parking available which is huge plus in this area.
The owners were just wonderful and let us park our car early before check in so we could go explore.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Nest On The Lake and enjoyed every moment.
Raffaella & Constantino make you feel very welcome and Constantino whilst being quite a character speaks very good English.
There is a variety of accommodation available from B&B rooms to self contained small apartments. My wife and I stayed in a 50 sq.mt. apartment that was fully equipped with a small kitchenette. This was great for us as after a big lunch we could buy some Ciabatta bread and tomatoes at a local shop less than 100 metres away and toast up a light evening meal.
The accommodation is first rate as is the comprehensive Continental Breakfast, if you can't find something tasty here, well you can't be trying!
The location is simply stunning, you are right on the lake with extensive 180 degree views. Lake Como is one of the prettiest locations in Europe and at this B&B you are right in the middle of it.
Located in Lezzeno, a smaller village about 25 klms from Como there are several good local restaurants and 3 mini marts that we noticed. We hired a car but wished we had saved our money, there is a fine system of Public Transport with a Ferry, Fast Boat and Bus service that will get you anywhere you want to go. I believe Constantino can arrange a pick up from Como.
We would stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: The Apartment at street level offers wonderful views and balconys
