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.

The home really does have a simply stunning panoramic unspoiled lake view we never grew tired of gazing at. The apartment itself is neat and tidy and well appointed. Sala Comacina is a lovely village to explore, unspoiled and charming in equal measure. The apartment definitely has the best location on the residence in our view as located directly overlooking the lakes and mountains so there was no other homes to ruin the view plus the pool is located immediately behind the apartment so easy to reach, yet the pool area is shielded by tall shrubbery which meant we did not hear any other resident swimming. In fact apart from the sunday of arrival and of an early evening we had the pool to ourselves nearly every day. The walk to the garage takes 2 minutes up the hill so we certainly left fitter than when we arrived but felt a car was necessary to reach the supermarket and larger ferry (5 minutes drive). Having said that the village centre in Sala is reachable in 10 minutes on foot where there are a good selection of restaurants, The Tout Paris wine bar (our favourite) and a nice butcher, baker and convenience store, so we did not use the car that much during a star. The greenway walk way runs close to the apartment, lovely for some scenic strolls plus we dined on the island (all you can eat and drink) Hiring a boat from the boat hire co. in the village and exploring the lake was our favourite day of our stay as it gave the lake a different perspective viewing it from the water. Special thanks to Julie who met us on arrival and made sure we were settled in. We thought the holiday was just right for recharging our batteries and would not hesitate to return again, hopefully soon!

The home was exactly as advertised and it was a delight to wake up to the views each morning. The village is bar far the prettiest on the lake unspoiled by the tourist masses yet with all the amenities we needed such as restaurants (tirlindana on the lake was a favourite of ours), the wine bar Tout Paris, and an excellent bakery and mini market plus a superb butchers. Plus the supermarket is a 5 minute drive. I would love to return in the summer when the weather is warmer although we enjoyed winter sun by day and cosying up by the far at night with a nice glass of valtellina local red wine. We would love to return some day and thank you Julie for all her help during our visit.
