Hi everyone,
B&B CASA DELLA MUSICA is a welcoming structure, very bright and I make sure that it is always very clean. I have 4 rooms with private bathroom and 3 of them have balcony with lake and mountain view. The structure is not adjacent to a busy road, so it is away from dangers. In addition, it is very close to the railway station, which is a convenient way to reach Varenna, Lecco and many other beautiful places. at 100 meters a splendid free beach is available.

Since 2023 I have also added something new: House Lake View And 2 Rooms (CASA DELLA MUSICA APARTMENT lake view) adjacent to the garden: the house, being independent, offers guests great privacy. Outside, the garden is entirely available, where you can enjoy moments of relaxation on the deck chairs provided in the shade of ancient olive trees. The same thing also applies to the large terrace equipped with table, chairs and awnings which is ideal for enjoying the sunsets over the lake over a cocktail, for dinners in the open air, or to be used as a solarium during the day. All these features make the structure a real jewel.

For those who love the lake, for those who like hill walking or mountain hiking, the area where I live is the ideal choice: there are lakeside towns where you can discover our beautiful lake or even wonderful landscapes which can be admired from the adjacent hills and mountains. Then Mandello del Lario is an unavoidable stop for those who are motorcycle enthusiasts because it is home to the famous Moto Guzzi factory. Varenna (7 minutes away by car) and Bellagio (20 minutes away) make a beautiful setting. At a distance of 25 km you can find Colico (intersection for Valtellina), Valchiavenna (way to Swiss) and the opposite side of the lake (Lugano). In short, they are places to visit and discover in person!

The property is very close to the beach, rail station, 2-3 minutes walking. Olcio is very quait and silent place and very nice place with good connection by rail way. The property very clean and comfortable. Massimo is very hospitable and helps immediately to solve any problem if it is. We have been on the last floor. The view is crazy from two balconies: Lago view and mount view. Both are amazing. We have really enjoyed. Massimo is really massimo. Edik and Liliya. Israel.

I have been travelling solo for more than 25 years and I highly recommend Casa Della Musica. Whether travelling solo, with friends or family, Casa Della Musica provides great hospitality, beyond expectations. It glows. The house is cozy clean, tranquil and safe. The location is superb. The view of the lake and mountains is a meditation per se. A big thank you to Massimo (host) for the warm reception and seamless stay. Like home, can't wait to return!

Massimo was such a brilliant host we felt really looked after by him and enjoyed our stay very much in Olcio. The B&B is spotlessly clean, Massimo makes a lovely breakfast and the location is lovely if you want to get away from the crowds.

Massimo was een superenthousiaste gastheer, niets is teveel gevraagd, hij hielp ons overal bij. Kamers werden elke dag schoongemaakt, goede bedden, goede wifi. Lekker en uitgebreid ontbijt, in een gezamenlijke ruimte. Daar stond ook een vleugel, waar Massimo ons trakteerde op een concert.

Abbiamo siggiornato una settimana alla Casa della Musica. La casa è semplicemente fantastica, la camera pulitissima e luminosa, dotata di terrazzo con vista spettacolare sul lago. L'accoglienza di Massimo è stata veramente squisita, disponibile per ogni esigenza. Non c'è solo professionalità e spirito di servizio, ma anche e soprattutto passione disponibilità e simpatia nell'accogliere gli ospiti. Torneremo sicuramente. Vivamente consigliato.

Location pulita e silenziosa, il gestore simpatico e disponibile, uniche note negative sono la mancanza di Pos del gestore ed il parcheggio, consigliamo di prenotare quello del gestore (a pagamento).

The answer from the host:
Ciao Emiliana, GRAZIE della tua recensione. scusami se devo fare alcune precisazioni perchè vi sono delle inesattezze che potrebbero dissuadere alcune persone che, forse, vorrebbero prenotare. NON E’ VERO che manca il parcheggio gratuito! Io ho 4 posti privati (che uno è libero di prenotare o meno AL COSTO DI 5 EURO), a distanza di 120 metri vi sono due parcheggi pubblici GRATUITI E SENZA LIMITE DI TEMPO…con google maps si può facilmente verificare. POS: IL POS C è MA SULLA PRENOTAZIONE CHE TU HAI LIBERAMENTE ESEGUITA è scritto chiaramente che il saldo avviene con i contanti o con pay pall, queste due note sono scritte anche in camera. Infatti non ho mai avuto problemi di sorta da questo punto di vista. Una soluzione sarebbe quella di pagare all' arrivo come si fa in molti posti, in modo che se vi fossero incomprensioni si ha tutto il tempo di riscolvere l eventuale fraintendimento. scusami ma ho dovuto specificare . GRAZIE E ARRIVEDERCI MASSIMO

We verbleven 6 nachten in dit heerlike B&B met Massimo als gastheer. De kamers zijn prima met een prachtig uitzicht op het comomeer, elke dag werd de kamer schoongemaakt en de bedden weer lekker fris opgemaakt. "S- morgens konden we genieten van een heerlik uitgebreid ontbijt dat je niet snel in Italiè zou verwachten. Massimo is een geweldige gastheer die er alles dan doet om zijn gasten naar de zin te maken, niets is teveel en voor tips kun je bij hem terecht. Kortom: als we weer eens in de buurt zin weten we zeker waar we zullen verbliven.

Мы провели потрясающие 4дня на побережье озера Комо в Саsa della Musica. Незабываемый день рождения. ! Понравилось все!Главное это хозяин отеля Массимо, замечательный человек, жизнерадостный, очень внимательный к нуждам отдыхающих, заботливый, однозначно лучший отельер, который любит своих гостей и свое дело. Его помощник Фабио нам тоже очень понравился. Массимо музыкант и все в отеле говорит о его любви к классической музыке. Отель просто в моем вкусе, в маленькой уютной деревеньке Ольцио, недалеко от Варены с потрясающим видом с балкона на озеро Комо и с не менее запоминающимся видом на горы из окна прямо с кровати. Балкон огромный, угловой с шезлонгами для отдыха и балконной мебелью. В нашем номере Верди уборка проводилась каждый день. В номере есть все необходимое: холодильник, чайник, чашки, чай, сахар, бокалы, отельная косметика, фен и аптечка. Очень удобная кровать, дополнительные подушки, белоснежные полотенца и полотенца для озера. Массимо может заказать пиццу для вас с доставкой на террасу или столик в траттории и ресторане. В номере большая книга с вариантами отдыха на озере, пешеходными маршрутами, экскурсионными поездками на поезде и пароходе. Сам Массимо во время регистрации нас подробно обо всем проинформировал. Завтрак превосходный, вкусный, обильный, с разными видами мяса, сырами, омлетом, овощами и фруктами, йогуртами, соками. Как приятно наслаждаться горячими круассанами и капучино на террасе с видом на озеро под звуки классической музыки! Мы съедали все и до ужина были сытыми и полными энергии О расположении деревни Ольцио: очень удобное. От ЖД вокзала 5 минут ходьбы, столько же до озера. Поезда не мешали совсем, почти бесшумные, автомобильная дорога в начале немного напрягала, больше всего мотоциклы и мотороллеры, которых в Италии ну очень много, но вскоре перестала их замечать. Добираться до основных туристических локаций очень удобно. До Варенны на поезде 15минут, от нее во все стороны паромы и катера, до Лекко 30мин. поездом, до Бергамо 40мин, до Милана 1час. Супермаркета в Ольцио нет, но в 2, 5 км в городке Манделло-дель-Ларио есть все и красивый парк и супермаркет. И в завершении о купании в озере. Вода в июне теплая, чистая и прозрачная, людей на пляже почти не было. Берег каменистый, для входа в воду нужны резиновые тапки. Ещё раз благодарю Массимо за отлично проведенное время, уют и комфорт. До свидания и очень надеюсь на новую встречу!

The answer from the host:
Шановна Ірина, Я зворушений цим фантастичним, чудовим оглядом: можу сказати, що це один із найкращих відгуків, які я отримав за 9 років роботи. ДЯКУЮ ТОБІ. Ви зрозуміли МОЮ ЛЮБОВ ДО МОЄЇ РОБОТИ, МОЮ ВЕЛИКУ ЗАХОЖЕННЯ ДО МУЗИКИ. Я ніколи не забуду твою посмішку і посмішку твого чоловіка. Я сподіваюся, що ви зможете мирно пережити цей важкий момент в Україні, сподіваюся, що війна, яка торкнеться вашої країни, скоро закінчиться. Велике спасибі від мене, а також від Фабіо, який допомагає мені на вихідних, коли я ходжу грати на органі в церкві. Я обіймаю тебе з любов'ю. massimo

Провели 5 замечательных дней у Массимо, номер Mozart. В номере все отлично обустроено для комфортного пребывания- горячая вода без перебоев, интернет, чистота порадовали. Вид с балкона- потрясающий. Сам поселочек маленький, до супермаркета, ближайшей пиццерии 5 минут на машине, до Varena 7-10. Рядом кафе-мороженое с выбором тортиков и уютным двориком. Вдоль озера как таковой дорожки для прогулок нет. Но в самом поселении много средневековых построек, старинная церковь, узкие извилистые улочки, где приятно побродить. Остались довольны домашними завтраками Массимо- капучино, колбасная/сырная нарезка, омлет, все по домашнему уютно и вкусно. Массимо очень гостеприимный хозяин и к тому же хорошо играет на пианино, стоящем в холле. В доме все говорит о музыке) С удовольствием остановимся в следующий раз также у Массимо!
