You won’t be short of things to do while staying at this charming little spot but just gazing over the shimmering lake is pretty good

Read guest comments

On the banks of Lake Como, a very charming family-run hotel, housed in a villa simply modernised and redecorated with a nicely laid-back feel. Bedrooms are humble, functional, with cheery shower rooms and (mostly) lakeside views. Some have balconies, one has its own little terrace. A road runs between you and the busy lake, so if you're a light sleeper, it may be worth giving up those shimmering views for a room at the back – at least in summer. No need to tip-toe round the owners: Paola is a delight, very generous and treats guests as friends. Breakfasts include homemade bread, cakes, savoury offerings and jams, husband Ty prepares a different menu of wholesome food every day, while Paolo is a "mistress of desserts". You can eat inside and admire the ever-changing local art work lining the walls or outside where you can embrace the lake views on the terrace that juts onto the water. You won't be short of advice here on things to do: visits to gardens and villas, boat tours to Isola Comacina, day trips to St Moritz and the Engadine. The ferries are a step away.

"This was our 3rd time staying at La Marianna and it was as lovely as ever. Paulo made us so welcome and as usual Tiziano's wonderful cooking did not disappoint. We shall be back next year. "
October 2012
"A very pleasant place to stay, with Paola's great breakfasts and helpfulness about trips and things to see locally, plus Ty's magnificent locally sourced cooking and superb wines. The central location to the lake's ferries and the parking opposite made it a very convenient place to stay."
