With a cinematic view of Lake Como as its backdrop , this property has all the charm of a village house with modern Italian elan. We woke to a wonderful sunrise coming over the hills opposite and spent lazy days wandering the picture perfect lakeside villages , with a scenic backdrop which is like the Highlands of Scotland - but with better weather! I could get used to a life here, sipping an Italian Red in the 'Lookout' , watching the Lake quietly end its day. This was a holiday villa as it should be. Be good to yourself - go!

The owner was not only efficient, but welcoming and helpful, and we would definitely recommend the property to others. We should also add that it is very well situated as regards train stations, and within minutes of the Lake front.

Easy access to Lake Como ferry and centrally located for day trips up and down the lake. My wife and I stayed with our two grown children for a couple of nights, unit was just the right size and well equipped. The underground parking garage was a bonus since parking in the Lake Como area can be a challenge. We arrived in the evening, would recommend getting good directions to the unit if not familiar with the area.
