Just What You Were Hoping For!

  • 5 of 5

If you are attracted to this property because you want to stay in a waterfront apartment in a 300-year-old house on the side of Lake Como, then you will not be disappointed. You do need to walk 100+meters down a lane of cobbled stairs and arches, and the apartment is located down a few more flights of stairs in the old building, but you arrive to a genuine piece of heaven. Caterina and Gianni who own the building and live upstairs are wonderful Italian elders who greet you with warmth and are happy to help you with anything you need. What an experience to stay on Lake Como with boats passing right by and locals fishing and sun-bathing on the marina break next door. Dive right in. Absolutely stunning.

Lovely hosts, a charming place in the sleepy village of Nesso.

  • 5 of 5

Stock up the fridge in Como and just relax. This the perfect place for a couple directly on the lake. Nesso is beautiful and there are very few distractions. 1 restaurant by the main road and very sparse on grocery shopping, but this is not a bad thing. This is a tranquil paradise with just you and the lake at your feet. Appartment has everything. Bonus point for espressomachine and absolutely wonderful hosts.

What dreams are made of !

  • 5 of 5

A truly beautiful little village and the apartment is wonderful. Jump off the deck into the lake. The owners we’re so great and full of life and warm smiles. Bus stop is a short walk to get you to any other village nearby . The private arched deck pictured on the profile pic is simply SUPERB mountains directly across the lake with snow on top !

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Catarina and Gianni, the owners, were the nicest people you could ever meet, very attentive and kind. The apartment was beautiful, very comfortable, very clean, very well layed out, and so much bigger than the photos show. We loved staying here, the balcony was amazing, you could sit and enjoy a glass of wine and watch the boats go by. The breeze when from the lake when the balcony doors were open, was fabulous. It was a lot of fun walking to the market through the beautiful stone alleys, it took you back to a different era. We felt like we were living among the local residents and not just tourist passing by.

We would love to return and spend a month here, I highly recommend staying in this apartment, transportation to others villages was very easy by bus or ferry. My passion is photography and I felt like a kid in a candy store with the breathtaking views.

Thank you Halina for all your assistance with the booking and please give our love to Catarina and Gianni, we hope to come back and spend more time in Nesso, Lake Como.

Ruhe und Entspannung

  • 3 of 5

Bei wunderschönem, warmem Frühlingswetter genossen wir die absolute Ruhe unseres "See-Appartements". Vor allem wochentags wird die Idylle in Nesso selten gestört. Am Wochenende viele Boote, Motorräder, Autos, die teilweise auch hier unten zu vernehmen sind.

Nesso ist charmant, ein mittelalterliches Örtchen. Die Wege sind holprig und gehen immer entweder auf- oder abwärts - ist man nicht so gut zu Fuss oder mag nicht gerne laufen, ist der Ort nicht ideal. Auch "Rambazamba" findet man hier nicht.

The position of this apartment directly at Lake Como is extremely wonderful and quiet. In the old town of Nesso, the so called 'Borgo Vecchio' the house is far away from traffic. The apartment is built on an antique boathouse. By a p private stair you can enter the boathouse and go for a swim in the lake. Also it is possible to take a dive into the lake from the balcony!

The apartment lies on the sunside of ake Como, which means it has sun from the late morning untill the evening.

The house is built in the middles of 1700 and is just renovated in a wonderful way by respecting and keeping the old atmosphere.

Nesso is a lovely small village wich has kept its authenticity. The people are incredibly friendly, helpful and easy. In Nesso itself you can do your daily shoppings in one of the 4 groceryshops.

It also has a pizzeria with high quality pizza’s and 3 bars.
