Hi,

My name is Sveva and I live in the beautiful and romantic historic center of Como.

In the year 2010 me and my brother, the architect, decided to renovate the attic above my flat into a modern and exclusive penthouse and now I'm very proud of the result !

I take care of the house in every little detail because I want my guests feel like home !

Decorating homes has always been my favorite hobby. It is not my work, it is my passion !

I am sure that you will have a unique experience in Como !

Sveva purchased this apartment in 2010

I just can write down what the architect said:

' I must thank Sveva for giving me the chance to do what I like best. As an architect I was so happy to give her place a new life. Beauty is in simple things. The site had such strong vibrations and history that only with a plain and fair approach it could turn out in a modern yet friendly house: a perfect place to live. Now that my job is done I can tell that her concern in giving the best she can when it comes to please her guests suits perfectly with the image I had in mind when the project started. I would recommend this solution because it was intended to give friendly and familiar feelings and my sister is working hard to make it concrete.'

Fantastic stay

  • Review Submitted: 20-Oct-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
We had 2 nights here and our only complaint was that it was not long enough. This is a fabulous, ideally placed apartment in Como old town which is within easy walking distance of all services and attractions. We had not hired a car but arrived by train and stayed in a hotel for our first night. We had no bother finding our way around the area on foot and would have found the apartment easily from the station. The apartment is beautiful, spotlessly clean and well equipped so much so that we could have quite happily stayed indoors! Sveva, the owner lives downstairs and is very helpful and there if you need her. I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough and is the perfect base for touring the area.
Owner's Response: Dear Linda,
thank you very much for your review.
I'm so happy when my guests feel welcome in my home !

Fantastic Apt in Lake Como

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 16-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2013
This was our our 3rd rental apt in Como center and it was by far the best. Our stay was so good that it’s hard to get back to real life…

Everything is exactly or better than the pictures. Location is great, you can drive your car from the nearby garage and drop/pick-up your family if you wish to save them some walk after a heavy tourism day.

The best shops are very close and I recommend paying a daily visit to “Tina Beretta” bakery shop to buy the freshest Focaccia and some Vitello Tonnato for breakfast. Another place we “discovered” this year was “Panificio Braglia”.

Two small blocks from the apt and you’ll find a variety of fresh pasta that can be of great value if you plan to (and you should!) have some meals at the apartment.

Sveva is an outstanding host and the apt is perfectly kept. Linen and recyclables are changed twice a week and the apt if fully loaded from napkins to shampoo. You just have to bring your luggage (?).

The great air-conditioning system is worth mentioning and it was a perfect companion for the very hot summer weeks we’ve got.

Thank you so much Sveva – hope to see you soon. Cesar & family.

Very spacious and wonderful penthouse apartment, nicely located in the heart of Como's "centro storico" yet very quiet, close to the lake, comprehensively renovated in style, tasteful and modern interior design, extremely well equipped, appliances in excellent condition, superclean and tidy, large windows offering ample light... need we say more? Simply a superb, great apartment - and we mean GREAT!

Dear Sveva, grazie mille ancora e ci vediamo presto!

Franziska, Martin & Alyssa

I know the ad says attic but I would describe it as a loft apartment.
It is everything the description lists, modern, clean, well maintained & a perfect location, especially for not having a car.We walked throughout the historic district.We took boat rides to many Lake villages,a train ride to Switzerland, bus trips to some of the Villas along the Lake, even a sea plane ride over Lake Como.A perfect family reunion including a 5 yr old!Sveva is very accommodating & full of great suggestions for restaurants & sightseeing.Have already recommended the home & location to many friends.The kitchen is well equipped for many meals in & the markets are fun to shop in.All in all a very successful 2 week holiday! Thank you Sveva from Amelia Island & San Francisco.

The Lake Como is an enchanted place, considered as one of the most beautiful destinations of Europe. A land of picturesque landscapes, flowery gardens and mountains reflecting in lakes basin waters. A portion of Lombardy to be visited and lived intensely, looking for old mansions, botanic gardens, museums and palaces.

Endless natural beauties and an original and fascinating artistic heritage in which three main trends may easily be outlined. The first more garish, is formed by the Lake Como Villas, unique in the world both for their architectural and landscape value and for the treasures they contain. The second, more hidden and cultured, is formed by the incredible concentration in this territory of Romanesque churches, that testify a brilliant and flourishing Middle Age.

The third asset, more evocative and intriguing, consists of the many fortifications of different ages, with with their own asset of anecdotes and legends, reminding of a turbulent and adventurous past .

Other Activities: Seaplane tour

Golf: Lake Como has many golf courses which can be easily reached by car:

* The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is a cradle of Italian beauty. A corner reminiscent of Britain overlooking Lake Como. A natural course with old world appeal. A heritage of golfing culture. The elevated position of its course provides a breathtaking view over some of Lake Como’s most beautiful scenery towards Argegno on the one hand and towards the arm of Lake Lecco on the other skimming over Bellagio and the peaks of the Central Alps. Menaggio is a characteristic preAlpine course with holes sloping upwards and downwards.

* The path of the Golf Villa d’Estate was built in 1926. It stands on the hills overlooking Lake Como Montorfano, in a forest of over thirty thousand trees. Chestnut, pine and birch help to create a scenario of outstanding natural beauty.

* The Golf Club Monticello is the most famous names in international golfing have played on this course which has housed as many as 7 Italian Opens.

* The Pinetina Golf Club, seventy hectares of green inside the Pineta Park Appiano Gentile and Tradate with its forests of pine sylvestre, birch, oak and chestnut trees, far from roads, noise and daily stress. Here, on the fantastic 18holes, you can hear the breath of nature, to observe the flight of the falcon and the race of the hare.

*The Golf Club Lanzo set within an age-old beech wood and framed by magnificent scenery, it is extremely challenging on account of its double tee-offs and natural hazard
