Lake Como is considered as a place of inspiration for centuries: Pliny and Manzoni used it as a retreat; but also the diversity of the Tremezzina area itself enchants with its finest plant species and unique olive groves.
Located in the heart of this area, and only five minutes from Lake Como, there is a small, charming B & B, which goes by the name Casa del Portico. This villa from 1690 is full of charm and atmosphere. And because of the attention to detail of the owner family, a little oasis in the nature arose. The view of Lake Como completes your stay perfectly; who does not want to experience the mysterious sparkle of the lake in the morning?!
Away from the crowd, away from the noise – this is the credo of the Casa del Portico! And in order that your stay can get this calm and unhurried, here you will find four comfortable and air-conditioned accommodations, rooms and apartments. Enjoy the enormous onsite garden, which perfumes the environment with its flowers and plants. And visit the nearby olive grove, the vegetable garden and the fruit trees – that is pure nature!
Despite the natural location, you are not at all out of the way: The house is located in Bonzanigo di Mezzegra, which lies at the heart of Tremezzina. In the immediate vicinity are San Giovanni di Bellagio, Menaggio, Tremezzo and Lenno; so interesting day-trips can be done easily.
We absolutely loved this small hotel. Beatifully designed spaces, lovely garden, some of the best restaurant food we have had anywhere, delightful breakfasts, helpful hosts . It could not have been bettter.

Amazing views from the terrace. Very comfortable and large beds, with good size rooms. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very good, served outside on the terrace overlooking the lake. Spacious grounds to walk in. Excellent dinner in the evening

It was a very nice atmosphere, very friendly and loving owners. We experienced here very beautiful and peaceful days. The breakfast was beautifully presented and extensive. The kitchen must be evaluated with excellent, especially the dinners. Very attentive owners. We will be back!

The accommodation is charming, warm and very friendly. There is a relaxed modesty and understated style. The owners were very welcoming and though our stay was cut short due to a family illness, their assistance and help was immensely valuable; we cant thank them enough. They make their own breakfast foods and it was wonderful; such favour and variety; for those who appreciate home made food, their breakfasts are heavenly.
We will be going back to spend more time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and to share their hospitality.
A special place

Lake Como is like paradise on Earth! Despite the mixed weather we had plenty to do and could really wind down. For us a big plus: the house is directly on the Greenway which means we didn't need the car for the whole of our stay and could reach what we wanted to see by foot and by boat.
Alice and Luca are delightful hosts - friendly, helpful and passionate about good food! The breakfasts are really quite something else. We highly recommend them and their beautiful house.
Our magic stay in Lake Como

My wife and I had high expectations as we traveled to Lake Como for our 20th anniversary and first time to Italy. Our stay at Casa del Portico in Mezzegra was far from disappointing. It was more than what we dreamed about. We were in awe with most of the places we visited. Mezzegra is an ideal quaint village close to all the main places to see on the lake. We so enjoyed the greenway that started at the back of the property and that took you by the cobblestone pathways.
The property itself was magical. The owners, Alice and Giorgio, paid attention to every detail to make each guest feel special. Their love of the area and their desire to utilize everything local was a pleasant surprise. They served dishes and treats every morning from their garden (even their own olive oil from their orchard). They have a gift of hospitality; it is a passion for them. You feel it in everything they do. It was pure magic for us. We could not recommend anything better.
Thank you both for sharing your place, your passion, and your love with us for our brief stay.
Traumhaftes B&B mit viel Flair und super Lage
Date of stay 08/07/2015
Das Haus ist super stilvoll hergerichtet und bis ins kleinste Detail perfekt! Die Zimmer sind groß, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Das Frühstück bietet viele verschiedene selbstgemachte Leckereien mit vielen Zutaten aus eigenem Anbau der Hausherren. Diese sind sehr freundlich, sympathisch und hilfsbereit. Im schönen Garten mit Blick auf den Comer See kann man sehr schön frühstücken oder einfach entspannen. Auch die Lage ist sehr zentral am Comer See. Zu Fuß braucht man fünf Minuten bis zum See und man kann von hier aus viele Ausflüge unternehmen. Einfach insgesamt mit Abstand das schönste Hotel in dem wir je waren und es ist uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen! Kurzum, wir wären am liebsten sofort dauerhaft eingezogen und wir waren mit Sicherheit nicht zum letzten Mal dort! :-)
