Her apartment has great location - 2 minutes from lake with small beach, 20 steps from shop with food and wine, 200 steps from bus stop. You can park your car in the private parking (otherwise is parking really problematic around the lake), enjoy excelently fursnished apartment and view from balconies and or terrace. Gina gave us many tips for interesting places, you can easily (and you don't have to you your car) reach Belaggio, Menaggio, Varenna, Como, Lenno, Tremezzo and other great places or you can plan trip up to the mountainst. Really great stay!

The air conditioning kept the whole apartment cool even on the hottest of days. The location is excellent and the ferry only a few minutes walk away and the beach and the train station around 10 minutes walk away. Visiting the nearby places was easy. Elena was very welcoming and particularly helpful and we would recommend this apartment.
