About Halina Hendrickx

We are the lucky owners of this wonderful apartment and enjoy to be here during our holidays. The rest of the year we do not want to close the house but keep it open for more people so they can enjoy the wonderful house, Nesso and lake Como.

Why Halina Hendrickx chose Nesso

The position of the house is really unique. Away from traffic and directly at the lake side. In the house you hear only the soft tones of the water. Also such a huge garden along the lakeside is rare. Like one of our guests once said: Only few like for example George Clooney have a simular garden like yours.

What makes this house unique

How to reach the apartment: The apartment is situated at a beautiful, charming, quiet spot. To reach this hidden spot you must walk a road through a pedestral area of Nesso. This part of the village is called ‘Castello’ because of a medieval castle on the top of the hill. To reach the house you park your car at one of the public (safe) parkingplaces at the main road of Nesso and then you walk downward towards the lake. This walk is about 250 metres and I have to tell you that the road can be rather steep. If you want your car right next door, it is better not to rent this house. But if you have no problems with such a walk, you will be rewarded with a stay at a wonderful and unique spot in the middle of Italian life.

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience, the people, the apartment , the location, the ambience were all exceptional. Halina's neighbours were great, Aldo and Suzi for picking us up from airport ( and return) and so friendly, Laura and Anita at the home restuarant .... What can I say ...fantastic! We swam in the lake, enjoyed dinner in the apartment and it was so easy to get to Como and other towns on the lake, either by ferry or bus...great experience and at reasonable cost. The steps to the apartment are a challenge if your are not fit but we enjoyed the challenge and it's not too bad and quite enjoyable to walk without any vehicle traffic to spoil your experience. Would I go back? .....absolutely don't stay in Como, don't stay in Bellagio ...stay in Nesso at this apartment 😎

An Experience of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The large apartment consists of two large rooms, one with a beautiful fireplace which came in very useful since I was there in February. You are literally on the lake's edge, you could not be closer unless you were swimming. There are actually two apartments owned by Halina and her husband. Halina is a very sweet and attentive owner who wants to make sure you are enjoying your stay and who could not enjoy this place? It has the most stunning views of the lake and you can walk out onto a beautiful garden terrace and just sit and take in the beauty which will stun you. Thank you again, Halina.

Cozy Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is cozy, and has a stunning view of Lake Como! You can open the apartment windows and hear the boats passing. The lake is directly on the water! There is a little gated garden in the front that allows you to sit close to the water and watch the activity!

Halina was so kind, and provided quick response times with any questions we might have.

Aldo and Susi were so welcoming! If the weather permits you can have your luggage delivered by a boat driven by Aldo, and you ride along so that you disembark on the steps directly in front of the apartment. We loved this experience, and wish that we had been able to take a sightseeing tour with Aldo. He is very knowledgeable of the area.

We requested the welcome dinner that was delivered to us in our apartment by Laura. This was truly amazing and we would suggest that you reserve the dinner to make your Lake Como experience intimate and memorable! Please ask for the tiramusu - it is splendid!

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the larger 1st floor apartment for 4 nights, as part of our honeymoon in Italy. The apartment and the town of Nesso were absolutely beautiful! The apartment was very clean and well kempt, just as good if not better than the pictures show. Halina was so helpful during the booking process, providing us with all the information we needed and helping set up transportation from the train station. The neighbors Aldo and Susi were very welcoming and helped us out with any questions we had while we were there. I would definitely recommend the welcome dinner with Laura, she is such an amazing cook. We enjoyed the dinner so much that we asked her to cook another dinner for us on our last night.

I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking to get away and truly relax. Its so peaceful, and away from the hustle and bustle of the large cities. The ferry stop is very close to the apartment, so its easy to hop the boat to Como or Bellagio for a day trip. There are hundreds of stone steps from the road down to the apartment, but that only added to the charm of the place. We couldn't have been happier with our stay, and hope to be back again some day.

Bellissima rental on Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the studio apartment for Easter weekend and it is truly a dream! First of all, Nesso is perfectly positioned mid-lake. I debated staying in Como and am so glad I decided to go further down the lake. Second of all, you can’t beat the position of this apartment (and I think the 1 BR is in the same building) right on the water. I sat and had my breakfast with the lake lapping right in front of me! The apartment itself is recently renovated and very modern inside, well equipped and cutely decorated. It’s also very well, kept and clean – it looks just like the photos so you will not be disappointed in any way. There’s a little table outside and then the pretty garden is just to the left. Nesso is a little treasure and this apartment is perfect. Finally, the care taken by your local contact/caretaker/chef can’t be beat. The dinner arranged on arrival night was absolutely wonderful and I encourage anyone else to do the same. Not only does it make arrival easier but her food is absolutely delicious! I only regret that the weather never cooperated for a boat ride with Aldo! It’s the little touches and the people that make a place special and this is truly a very special place. I would go back in a heartbeat!

"Enchanted September"

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place! Fabulous views from every window, spacious, comfortable, quiet, lovely outdoor space, well maintained. A wonderful experience. Nesso is well located between Como and Bellagio (great bus and ferry service) but you may never want to leave this unique and beautiful place.

Far exceeded my expectations.
