Beautifully maintained property with the most stunning views. It is the ideal location (5 mins from the edge of Lake Como) and another few minutes you're in the centre of the village with a range of restaurants and bars overlooking the lake. The beauty is that Gravedona isn't commercialised. Everything is at a relaxed pace. It forces you to slow down and unwind and enjoy the Italian way of life. The property itself has everything you need if you have a young family like myself. Plenty to entertain the kids and a supermarket round the corner that is open 7 days a week is just perfect to balance eating out, with meals at home enjoying the sunset from the terrace. The owners have catered for every eventuality and left lots of recommendations for sightseeing trips, shopping, walking and where to hire that speed boat to check to arrive in style at Bellagio ;-). Cant recommend it enough. We will be back!
From the moment you arrive at this property you are not on holiday. This is probably the first holiday we have taken that didn't feel like one, as you become one of the locals
The property was spacious ,well maintained and fully equipped to enable us to have a really relaxing stay. There was a T.V. which was never switched on as we had our view of Lake Como. But what really made our holiday was the warmth and hospitality shown by Erica and her family. They made us feel so welcome without being intrusive. Our little one had full use of their pool and often splashed around with Erica's 2 children. We were given great advise about days out , local attractions and the best places to shop for fantastic Italian food. Not that you needed too much as "Nonna" would often visit us with home cooked Tiramisu , a beautiful apple cake and freshly picked plumb tomatoes from her kitchen garden.
Located at the North of Lake Como, our property was perfectly suited for the town of Gravedona which was a lovely 12 minute stroll away, with lovely local restaurants, cafes, ice cream and the Como ferry stop. We also spent an afternoon at the local beach on the lake.
By staying at a local property we got great advice on local activities , like mountain hiking, a day trip to Saint Moritz and how to survive a trip to Milan!! Best of all was the local restaurant called Ajo, Erica also called and got lake side reservations for us!!
We will definitely be returning to this property and would 100% recommend it if you want the perfect Italian escape.
