Adriana was very helpful (housekeeper) when we arrived. The apartment was very clean and although small, very well equipped.
The location is quiet and if the weather is nice and sunny (though not while we were there), there is a good sized veranda to sip wine. The Veranda gets sun only in the late afternoon.
2 mins walk to a supermarket which was also quite well stocked with essentials so fantastic for that just arrived shop. The route down the mountain to Luino was like doing the Monte Carlo Ralley one way but our sat nav also took us on a more sedate route with less bends and turns. There is a Carrefour in Luino for the major shop (only 10 mins away from the apartment). We tried to visit the Chocolate factory in Caslano (CH) but were told only open May to September. We then visited the small 'zoo' nearby which was quite a disappointment. High admission fee for an extremely small zoo with only monkeys, ducks, turtles, birds, guinnea pigs and one lion and his lioness. It took us all of 30 mins to do the rounds, feed the animals and then leave.
Unfortunately, the majority of our stay was wet and dull but I would imagine on a nice sunny day, walking along the front of Lago Maggiore would be lovely.
9 out of 10 for the accommodation though (apart from the upstairs neighbour who liked to leave at 7am and slam the heavy front door as hard as possible it would seem, making getting a holiday lie in impossible!!).
Simone was a very pleasant host, nothing was a problem, always willing to assist. The house was as described, peaceful and quiet, it is out of the main town of Como, but buses are frequent and easy to navigate around.
All in all, a very nice place, clean, comfortable, quiet, with all cooking utensils you will need, which is all we required.
I would recommend this property if this is what your looking for. I would not hesitate to book again.
