A magical atmosphere will welcome you from the very beginning.

The soft light that touches the ancient stones and bricks, the communal lounge characterized by the vibrant colors of 60s furniture, and the many small details that enrich the house will contribute to making your stay even more special.

The B&B "Le dame della Cortesella" is located at 56 via Milano, on the third floor of a typical and ancient Lombard courtyard house.

Hey from Ilaria

Member since May 2013 | 36,589 hits
I love strolling through the stalls of antique markets, fascinated by the thought of how many lives and eras these objects have lived through. Furniture that has passed from home to home, toys that have been passed down from child to child for decades before ending up here in these ever-evolving rooms, because I will never stop enriching them with new details.

A typical and ancient Lombard courtyard house recently renovated, respecting and embracing its characteristics and peculiarities. A house where stone walls and red bricks tell stories of the past, creating a special atmosphere that we hope will give you indelible images to carry with you on your journey.

What I appreciate about this area is that everything is within reach and easily accessible on foot or by bike in just a few minutes. A few steps to reach Porta Torre and access the historic center through the Roman walls, built in the second half of the 12th century.

And the lake.. I will never stop looking at it with wonder, amazement, and gratitude. I observe it, listen to its sweet and calm sound, and realize how lucky I am to have been born and raised in such an evocative place.

We had a great time! Ilaria is extremely hospitable and our son loved her. Nice clean room and within walking distance of everything in Como. The street in front is a bit noisy, but with the window closed we slept wonderfully.

We stayed at this B&B in Como and were delighted with everything. The room and the shared kitchen were very cozy and creatively and tastefully furnished, with a lot of attention to detail. The hostess was extremely cordial and helpful and had lots of great tips for activities in the city for us. We felt very comfortable here and would come back anytime. \n\nHere are a few details that we particularly liked: \n\nThe room was very spacious and bright, with a large window overlooking the city. \nThe beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and modern. \nThe communication with the hostess was excellent. \n\nWe can fully recommend 'Le Dame della Cortesella'. It is a very nice and cozy accommodation with a lovely atmosphere.

I've never felt so good in a welcoming place. I felt at home, pampered. Ilaria is very sweet and attentive to every need. It was as if we were friends forever. Also, everything is very clean and welcoming. Thank you, Ilaria.

Ilaria is a great host with amazing energy, contagious positivity and vast knowledge about Como and its surroundings. She will help you plan your trip, give you amazing tips about sightseeing and most importantly - where and what to eat. She will also go out of her way to make reservations for you (or call the train line to check if they aren't striking).\n\nAs for the B&B - it was much more than what I could have imagined. The location is perfect - walking distance away from everything important (city center, lake, train station, parking, shops etc.). It is very, very cozy and tastefully decorated, you'll find everything you need there and if not, just ask. Our room was quiet and we felt very safe.\n\nKeep doing what you are doing, Ilaria. Hope next time we visit Como, you'd have a free bed for us.\n\nDimitar & Nassi

Our stay and host, Ilaria, at Le Dame della Cortesella B&B were outstanding! Ilaria's artfully decorated B&B, hospitality, attention to detail, breakfast, and helpful suggestions for getting the most out of our one night in Como were exceptional. I highly recommend Ilaria's B&B for a true homey, Italian experience. We hope to return for a longer visit to Como and enjoy the company of our new friend.

We spent one night at this B&B and felt at home, because the kindness, simplicity, and welcoming nature of the owner make the environment feel like family.\n\nQuiet room, perfectly clean, all delightfully and carefully curated in every detail.\n\nA plentiful breakfast, huge croissants, and delicious yogurt prepared by the hostess.\n\nWhat else to say. Go there. A place where humanity reigns supreme.

I recently stayed at this B&B with some friends and colleagues. We had a great time! Even before arriving, we felt welcomed. Ilaria is a special person who immediately puts you at ease as if you were at home. Very valuable and accurate all the information she gave us. What about the structure? Very unique, welcoming, spotlessly clean, and carefully curated in every detail. The breakfast was delicious and also well-prepared. We will definitely note the name of this place and remember it for a future stay. Highly recommended.

What can I say, I chose this Bed and Breakfast just from the photos, even those of the breakfast! The good taste and creativity had won me over. And everything was confirmed: beautiful place, very well-kept, very clean; not to mention the cozy breakfast and the owner, Ilaria, very kind. Upon arrival, she gave us a lot of useful information and followed us throughout the stay with great interest and availability. The price is comparable to those in the area, but it offers much more in my opinion. Even a short stay can become a beautiful memory.

Ho soggiornato in questo B&B a inizio gennaio 2017 nella camera tripla. L'accoglienza di Ilaria, la ragazza che gestisce il Bed, è stata impeccabile, sempre gentile, educata e disponibile. La stanza era pulitissima e molto accogliente, le luci, il riscaldamento a pavimento e il dolce profumo che si respira hanno reso il mio soggiorno indimenticabile. Anche la colazione nella cucina anni 50 mi è piaciuta davvero tanto. Consiglio questo B&B a chi vuole trascorrere una vacanza a Como in un luogo incantevole che rimane nel cuore.
