Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely holiday thank you with many happy memories and one or two very funny occasions like when John got stuck in the toilet in the hotel in Varenna! We did have a hire car as John is struggling more with his mobility so we were able to go all round the lake and round most of Lake Lugano too. We found the apartment quite easily once we realised we were looking for Domaso and as a driver, the access to and from the garage would challenge some drivers especially being able to turn round!



The best views are from the patio around the swimming pool.



We came to Lake Como to explore the area and did that to the best of our ability - certainly not being full season was ideal. We found Piona on our first full day which was so peaceful and quiet, with a lovely beach cafe, where the young man lent us plastic chairs to take to lakeside for John to sit and watch the world go by. We ate at Lui's in Domaso that evening which was lovely with views towards the snow capped mountains. We went to Lake Lugano on the 2nd day starting in Porlezzo where we had lunch on the waterside having walked through the local market and then drove round the lake through the mountains and crossed the bridge back through Lugano town, Switzerland and also visited the Lake Piano and its nature reserve. On our way home we found a lovely restaurant on the waterside at San Vito, north of Menaggio, which we returned to the following evening. Sunday was spent driving round Lake Como and we fell in love with Varenna - what a delightful place. We did lose John in the toilet as the door got stuck but he was released after a few minutes! We then continue around the whole lake,travelling through thunder, lightning and hailstones seeing Lecco, Bellaggio and Como.



On Monday we drove to Tirano where we caught a train on the Bernina Express up through the mountains, with some awesome views thoroughly enjoying the whole experience. When we arrived in St Moritz, we took a taxi and had a lovely lunch in Hauser Cafe eating rosti and two local cakes before returning and taking a panoramic view train back. Although the views are better with the bigger windows, the commentary was restricted as very little in English and less stops than the regular train we took up, so we did get the best of both worlds. Tuesday was a lazy day to catch up so we went up to Vercana and saw the views from higher in total peace. Having gone up as far as we could we returned to the SS340 and in Sorico, we were

Schöne Wohnung, nur leider viel zu laut!

  • 2 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr schön und modern eingerichtet, nur leidet der gesamte Aufenthalt unter dem ständigen Lärm. Weder der Text noch die Bilder geben wieder, wie ungünstig die Wohnung liegt.

Die zu jeder Zeit sehr belebte Hauptstraße verläuft direkt vor dem Haus. Die Terasse ist nicht nutzbar, da man sich nicht unterhalten kann. Auch an dem recht kleinen Pool, der nur Hüfttiefe hat, kann man leider nicht entspannen, da permanent LKW- und Motorradverkehr herrscht. In der Nacht müssen die Fenster geschlossen bleiben, jedoch merkt man auch da die Vibrationen der Straße.

Ebenfalls ist keine Grünfläche am Pool vorhanden und die Plastikstühle weisen Risse auf. Allergiker sollten ebenfalls die Hände weglassen, da verwilderte Katzen von den Mietern des Hauses angefüttert werden und sich in diesem Bereich vermehrt aufhalten.

Fazit: Zu einem atemberaubendem Aufenthalt gehört auch der Faktor der Entspannung. Atemberaubend ist leider nur der permanente Lärm der Hauptstraße. Alle postiven Faktoren leiden einfach unter der Lage, daher nur 2 Sterne.
