The property is really old on the outside but really modern and clean on the inside. Everything you could reasonably hope for is provided. The views over the lake are amazing from both house and garden. Be aware though that you either need a car or be very fit to get into town. The path down is very pleasant but very steep. Paolo was a great host, happily meeting us at midnight to lead us to the property. He gave us some really good advice on places to visit in the area. Gravedona itself is a lovely, quiet, little town with bars and restaurants etc scattered along the Lakeside and within the narrow, steep cobbled streets leading from it. There is plenty of free parking available, some with time limits (get a disco orario from a newsagent) Of all the places I've been, this would be the closest to getting a 100% rating

The view from the balcony over Lake Como is truly amazing - exactly as shown in the photos. Restaurants, cafes, shops and a supermarket are all within an easy 10/15 minute walking distance. Erica & her lovely family were very kind and most helpful on providing any information which we required. Thank you for your hospitality in welcoming us to your wonderful Gravedona location :)
