B&B C'era Una Volta, Perledo
Very Good8.0
A cute and unique B&B in lago di Como
The B&B is in an old stone building that the owner Gianna has renovated. It is very unique, decorated with antique furnitures, and is located in a tiny village above the Como lake. Gianna is amazing to create an overall warm atmosphere and a fantastic the breakfast. We had the "red room", a nice and large room with tasteful decor. The only negative was that the bathroom was very very small with not much space for anything, so a bit inconveniente. But definitely we will stay again in the future and highly recommend.

Wonderful B and B!
Jonna, the owner was extremely gracious! The service and the food was Great. The B and B was above the town of Varenna. Easy access down to town by cab. The views coming down the mountain were breath taking. She is one of the sweetest women we have ever met. This B and B gives you a taste of the "Real" Italy! Very Romantic! We will definitely be back!

Little Italy Experience - Super Hosts
We had an amazing time staying here with Luigi and Gianna. You can not find a better experience with a host family than these two. They will have you smiling and laughing the whole time. Gianna was like a mother to us, even volunteering to take care of our baby while we ate the breakfast she prepared for us - with real Italian coffee. The small town is at the top of the mountain, and there are probably over 100 switchbacks, but well worth the mountain drive. The views of Lake Como are some of the best. The neighbors were very friendly also and we bumped into them several times. It is a true community where everyone knows everyone and they take care of each other. The town of Varena on the lake is a short 15 minute drive down the mountain. It's a nice small lake town with many restaurants and places to stroll around along the water. Some restaurants that were highly recommended were fully booked on the weekend. Sadly, we returned to our room and asked Luigi and Gianna where we could eat close to them. Luigi took us on a 2 minute walk to the local restaurant where the food was amazing and the prices were probably less than half of the tourist restaurants on Lake Como. We were so glad we couldn't get into the restaurant in Varena. The bottom line is that this is a great little place if you want to have an authentic Italian small town experience. Luigi and Gianna will make your experience memorable because of their amazing gift of hospitality.

A charming piece of Italy
Very quiet place, with a lot of old charm. Highly recommended B&B. No A/C but definitively not a problem even in hot July days, because nights are cool. Great sleep with NO sound at all! So relaxing. Great hosts, providing plenty of advice on great places to eat (try the local eatery, awesome!) and locations to visit. Communication was possible with a little bit of French, English and Italian. The place and furniture bring you back in time(1850s?), with strong attention to details. Breakfast is in a lovely dining room, in old porcelaine dishes. We had the suite for 4, with a private balcony, 2 separate bedrooms. This is an accommodation which, by itself, is a highlight of my trip to South Europe. Reaching the place is part of the experience. Leaving from Varena is easiest (roads can accommodate 2 cars here!), park your car on the church parking lot and walk 50 meters or so with your luggage.

Fantastic Getaway
Awesome people, so friendly and traditional, breakfast was incredible. Place is really quirky and has a wonderful vibe. It is hard to get to and a little out of the way but the views are phenomenal and as you're so high up, it means you don't have to take the train up the mountain to see the lake. Taxi is are easily accessible but are expensive.
