Perfect if you have a car
Posted Sep 14, 2011
This is a lovely house with views over Lake Como, and beside a little cove.
It's about 1.5 k outside the village of Lierna, so is better suited for those traveling by car than by train. The traffic on the road outside the gate is very heavy, so it's not a very comfortable walk into the village along this road. The alternative route is a quiet lane, which is the way the locals walk into the village, and to the train station. This is very pleasant.
The house is small and friendly, the host very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast, served on the balcony, was good.
There are boats directly from Lierna to Bellagio. For all other boat trips, one must go into Varenna, six kilometers away, which takes ten minutes by train.
For an affordable place to stay on Lake Como, this is highly recommended.
