Frontelago is a great place. Our apartment was cute and well-furnished. The common rooms were quaint and charming. Maria's breakfast was ample and delicious (mmm... tiramisu). But the greatest asset were definitely our hosts, Maria and Pietro. They were really hospitable, forthcoming and informative. Maria really went above and beyond by driving us to the train station at five in the morning, not once, but twice! (Grazie mille, Maria) We really felt at home! Suffice it to say we are looking forward to future visits.

We spent last night here on a last minute booking and we scored!!! The home has been in Pietros family for generations and is filled with gorgeous antiques!! Maria went out of her way to be kind and welcoming, our room and bathroom were immaculate and beyond gorgeous with stained glass, antiques, a small terrace, and everything else you could ever need. We took her suggestion and walked to the Villa Maggio for a FIVE course meal with wine for 13 euros!!! Incredible dinner!! If you are planning a trip to Lake Como, stay here, you will love it!!!! Maria speaks some English, Pietro very little. Both are very very kind and gracious!

Room Tip: Villa is hundreds of years old. We had an upstairs room with a private ensuite and view terrace, bel...

We stayed here for one night and when we left we felt like we were leaving family we've known for years. Pietro and Maria are the nicest people you could wish to meet. They informed us of what to see and where to eat. Rooms were clean and views were just stunning. Breakfast was just so plentiful. Can not recommend enough. Memories taken are discussions in broken english and italian about the local motorbikes motorguizzi,football and pronouncing the English "th", seeing Lake Como from our room and just having the most wonderful time. Thank you Pietro and Maria

Beautiful location. Superb accommodation. Charming couple. They brought us to the restaurant for a superb Italian meal that was so inexpensive and brought us to town the following day. Looked after us beyond the call of duty.

Maria & Pietro the perfect B&B Owners,

Rooms roustic style but in perfect condition, very clean and very tidy.
The place and the owners gives you the feeling that you are a guest in a freinds house and not in a B&B.

Great Breakfast in a very freindly atmosphere.

Great location just in front of the lake.

Maria gave some great tips for great routes in the sourouning mountains as well as places to eat and see.

Thank you Maria & Pietro, hope to see you again in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed at Tivano Room which had a lake view.

Frontelago was a great find and we loved every minute of our 5-day stay here. Pietro met us at the train station in Olcio, and he and his wife Maria were wonderful hosts and lots of fun. We had a fantastic view of the lake from our balcony - the room was great and bed was very comfortable. The house is beautiful - full of antiques and paintings and there's a little beach in front. The breakfasts were probably the best we've ever had at a B&B. Olcio is quiet - the train station is a few mins walk and it's easy to get to other towns around the lake by train and ferry - such as Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room with a balcony and lake view.
