One of the cleanest and best equipped houses ever - and with a terrific view!
We loved our stay in Nesso. The bus stop is at the foot of the driveway, and the ferry terminal is 8 minutes walk away. The house has the best veranda ever to enjoy a quiet drink at the end of a hard days touring and you can park your car right in the front of the house. The kitchen is fully equipped and the beds are comfortable. What more can I say? We had a few minor problems on arrival after the house had been hit by lightning which knocked out the wifi and the TV - but the owners were right onto the problem and had replaced all the gear within a couple of days. Great house - great welcome - great experience.
Many thanks. Glad you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome any time. Diego has told me you were perfect guests. Thanks again, bon voyage, , ciao,John
A lovely apartment with a fantastic view
Stayed here for 9 days in September. The owner, John, was really prompt and helpful in all communications. The view from the balcony is stunning, and Nesso is a great place to stay on Lake Como as its not too 'touristy' and has some lovely narrow lanes and views. The lake boats and buses stop by frequently so transport is not a problem either.
The flat was spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. Loads of tourist info on the book shelves, and a good powerful shower. Can't fault it - highly recommended!
Many thanks for your positive review. -I am glad you enjoyed our place and look forward to having you again. Warm regards, John
Great Location and Views
The apartment is spacious and clean and has character. The views of the lake from the balcony and bedrooms are superb. The bus stops to Bellagio and Como are at the bottom of the drive and the ferry stop is a slow 15 minute steep walk. Sturdy foot ware is required. Local restaurant, the Tre Rose is less than 5 minute walk and is very good with great views over the lake. A local convenience shop is a 5 minute walk and sells the essentials. The local bank is a 10 minute walk. We spent a week cruising the lake and exploring the many historic villages and their beautiful villas and gardens before heading for one of the many lakeside bars and restaurants. Last bus back from Bellagio is 22:00 so you can have dinner there as an alternative to the Tre Rose. Taxi is 35 euro if you want to travel in style.
Many thanks for the review. Glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you again. Regards, Jg
Wer den Comersee kennt, weiß wie schön die Landschaft mit den steilen Ufern ist. Um so wertvoller ist aber auch der Parkplatz, den wir direkt vor der Haustüre nutzen konnten! (Luxus in Nesso!)
Der Blick über den See ist wirklich grandios.
Wir hätten auch die ganze Woche einfach auf dem Balkon sitzen bleiben können und es wäre uns nicht langweilig geworden.
Das große Platzangebot in der Wohnung ist sehr angenehm! Hier trifft man nicht auf Designermöbel oder Ikea-Einerlei. Wir würden sagen typisch italienisch :)
Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht! Vorallem in der Küche ist alles vorhanden!
Nesso selber ist ein schönes altes Dörfchen mit einem winzigen Badestrand von dem aus man den schönsten Blick beim Schwimmen haben kann, den es gibt!
Der Cousin des Vermieters hat uns sehr nett "betreut" und war sehr um unser Wohl bemüht!
Dem Vermieter möchten wir nochmal für seine immer schnellen und freundlichen Antworten und Informationen danken!
Wir glauben dass man hier ein tolles Preis-Leistungsverhältnis geboten bekommt. Wir würden die Wohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!
Am liebsten kommen wir selber zurück!!
Thank you for your review. I do not understand it but I imagine it is from Iris. Thank you. John
Beautiful views, perfect location, spacious and fully equipped home
My wife and I along with another couple shared this home for a week in early September. Our stay was perfect in every respect. The home is spacious, clean and fully equipped with modern appliances throughout. Storage space abounds. Nesso is ideally siutated midway between Como and Bellagio with hourly bus service in both directions and adequate ferry service as well. We rented a car upon arrival at Malpensa and turned it in the following day at the Como rail station. Bus and ferry were ideal. Other reviews provide details on the proximity of both. Views from the home are simply spectacular morning, noon and night. Meal preparation is a snap in the fully equipped kitchen or opportunities abound in villages from Como to Bellagio, Nesso included. The owner is a delight to work with as well as his relatives residing adjacent to the home in Nesso and the helpful and friendly locals . Highly recommended.
Wonderful, with spectacular view of Lake Como
My wife and I, along with various constellations of friends, have been coming to this house in Nesso for years. I believe we have stayed there, usually for two weeks at a time, 5 times. This last time was the best because the weather was wonderful, and the kitchen had been completely redone.
The bus to Bellagio stops at the end of the driveway; the bus to Como across the street. The ferry to all points on the lake is a short walk away, all downhill. So the house is most conveniently located. There is a good restaurant at the Tre Rose Hotel, not 5 star, but more than adequate, about a block away.
If you want to eat at home, you will be able to do it without difficulty. The kitchen is fully equipped, and spotless. If there are any difficulties, the owner's cousin lives right next door. We strongly recommend this lovely apartment. The views are knock-out.
Lake Como is renowned for it scenic beauty, its many lovely villas, Villas Carlotta and Melzi with their rich botanical gardens, and Villa Balbianello, said to be the most beautiful of all. The restored abbey of Piona is place of quiet serenity, and Bellagio has some of the best shopping in Italy. The City of Como offers pleasant walks along the lake and in the old walled city; its Duomo, or cathedral is a masterpiece. Milan, with Leonardo's famous Last Supper ,is only an hour away by train, and ski resorts on the Valtellina are easily accessible.
The government has just added a 2 euro per person tourist tax for the first week. It is included in the cost of the apartment if thre are two persons(children do not pay). If there are 4 guests I will split the cost. This property is rented from Saturday to Saturday. Check-in time is from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m., and check-out time is 10:00 a.m. During winter months, November.
