Liked: This is a charming rustic farmhouse, a short drive from lake Como (if you go the opposite way to our satnav, which took us all around the mountain villages, rtaher than along the shores of the lake then up, but nevermind). The owners were lovely. One spoke English really well, the other a man didn't, but we still managed to communicate in our own fun way. There are goats, dogs, chickens, donkeys and wonderful orchards here, and the view over the mountains is divine. The food, homecooked and rustic, is one of the highlights of my holiday. I would thoughrily recommend this charming place.

Disliked: This is not a chain hotel. Do not expect it to be. It is wonderful in a rustic way.

Liked: This place is paradise and everyone who loves the mountains, great food and wonderful hosts should stay here. Senore Bonfiglio and family are so warm and welcoming. Senora Julia is a fabulous cook and everything she makes is so delicious. All cheeses pastas, jams, breads, and every item on their dinner menu is homemade. Breakfast is breads, cheeses and the most delicious raspberry jam from their own raspberry patch! The famiy is multi-lingual, too!! It is better to have your car, altho we did not and Antonio drove us back and forth to Argegno.

07 September 2009 Nema would recommend this property

Liked: May not be a view of Lake Como, but the view is still incredibly beautiful! (Como is just down the mountain and around the corner) The people are sweet and friendly and the home cooked, organic food was superb. Our rooms was definitely cozy & UBER romantic! It was such a personal service that we felt like it was all ours, even though there were other guests. Our 'Farm Holiday' was fantastic!*EXTRA NOTES: The fireplace is an extra 20 euros. Restaurant is closed on Mondays. Dinner is extra, but totally worth it! A rooster will wake you up, but we enjoyed that part; no beeping alarms! Be sure to wander the grounds, that's part of the fun!

Liked: Al Marnich is a real slice of paradise. Each room has stunning views, the surroundings are peaceful and quiet. The ownders bend over backwards to help you out. The food (all local produce) is delicious - even arriving at 11.30pm we were able to order some wine and cheese. There are wonderful walks in the mountains from right outside the front door. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Liked: Our stay was very relaxing with the beaufiful veiw, idilic country location and helpful hosts. Great place for anyone interested in organic farming, home-grown italian food, bushwalking or just relaxing. The rooms were clean and full of character and big tick for the homegrown foods at breakfasts and dinner! Would be difficult to get too without a car.
