With a terrace overlooking Lake Como and perfect weather, this was a memorable holiday. We were within easy reach of the main tourist spots, but also with a good local restaurant. The house was clean and well-equipped but could have done with another work surface in the kitchen. Also, it would have been nice to have been informed of the building work going on out the back of the property. Small quibbles but many fond memories
We were met at the ground floor apartment by Gigliola who is very warm and welcoming. There is lots of information on where to visit. A beautiful welcome pack had been prepared with enough food for a breakfast and dinner. Gigliola even passed us some home grown vegetables in the week.
The apartment is clean, modern and well equipped, with everything you might need. There are basic supplies there, so you don't need to rush to the supermarket on day one. The kitchen is very modern and a pleasure to use.
Parking is available near to the apartment.
There is a nice garden at the front with sun for most of the day. There are plenty of loungers and even outdoor toys for children. We enjoyed eating some meals at the table overlooking the lake.
A car is essential. The apartment is well placed to get to all the main places and to reach the ferry terminal in Menaggio for crossings. We managed to visit all the main places.
There is a local shop further up hill and other supermarkets about fifteen minutes away by car.
It is a fifteen minute walk down hillside steps or a quick drive to the lake and beach area which is lovely for a walk or sunbathing. There are a couple of nice restaurants and bars and others can be reached by car in ten minutes. Night life in Lake Como generally is low key.
Gigliola is a lovely host. She lives close by and is always happy to give help, we thought she was a real people person but she was never intrusive.
We would highly recommend this apartment if you visit Lake Como.
