Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Gravedona - Casa Ronchi

Fully equipped home (our weekend house), great view, 2 bed/2 bathrooms, wifi

Peaceful, entirely renovated 'Rustico' with great view. The house is located in Gravedona on the western shore in the northern part of Lake Como. Its quiet location on a dead end street (mountain side of the house) just above Gravedona at 1 km from the lake on the hill assures a marvelous view overlooking both Gravedona and large part of Lake Como. From the terrace you can even see Bellagio, where the lake splits into lake Como and lake Lecco.

The house is independent at two sides and has three floors.

Main entrance is at the central floor (street level) to the kitchen and adjoining living room. It has 2 bedrooms on different floors with a bathroom and toilet each.

The kitchen and living give access to a terrace (sun side with Lake view) and the upper sleeping room to a balcony (same side as the terrace). The house is furnished comfortably, and equipped with wifi, central heating, wood-burning stove, television, audio system, vacuum cleaner and washing machine. The kitchen includes an fridge with small freezer, oven, dish-washer and microwave.

Division: you enter the house from the street level into the kitchen and adjoining living. From there a spiral staircase leads you to the upper sleeping room (double bed;160x200cm) and bathroom with toilet. This sleeping room has French windows into a balcony with lake view. From the terrace (next to the living & kitchen) an outside staircase leads to the downstairs sleeping room (two single beds; 90x200cm) with its own bathroom and toilet. Below the terrace is a small storage room where the heating system and washing machine are located.

Gravedona features a well equipped sailing club, and sandy beach and is 5 minutes by car, or 10 minutes walking from the house.

Perfect for relaxing, windsurfing every day or just start hiking at the house.

All in all fantastic! The house is lovely - beautifully restored and containing everything you could possibly need. The views are breathtaking and the neighbours exceptionally friendly to foreign strangers. Gravedona itself is lovely - not too busy but with everything you would need (including superb restaurants). Easy access to the rest of the lake by road or boat.

We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again. Thanks!

erholsame Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus isr sehr gemütlich, die Raumaufteilung ist genau richtig: große Wohnküche mit allem was nötig ist in großer Menge, also nicht nur 4 Tassen, 4 Messer .... großes, gemütliches Wohnzimmer, bequeme Betten, Badezimmer direkt neben dem Schlafzimmer. Man sieht sofort, dass das Haus von einer Familie genutzt wird und das ist sein großer Vorteil - und natürlich der unschlagbare Blick über den Comer See!

Location agréable avec belle vue sur le Lac de Côme

Seul désagrément : présence de punaises de lit dans la literie --> compréhension du désagrément après le séjour

Owner's Response: There are absolutely no bedbugs in our beds. We use the house ourselves almost every weekend and for most vacations- the problem encountered by this renter was caused by insects that can (rarely) occur with very warm weather. They are difficult to see, that is why doubts about bedbugs (or worse flees) might arise. To avoid them the house is equipped with electric devices against mosquitos and other insects. Since 1996 this problem has occurred only during 3 summers. My renter unfortunately only wrote me about this problem after their stay. It could have been avoided easily.

"Merveilleux lieu de séjour. Petite maison très sympa,très propre, superéquipée, au calme, vue imprenable. Beaucoup de choses à voir et à faire dans la région. Nous avons passé des vacances merveilleuses. Voisins très sympathiques, mais ne parlent que l''Italien. Les problèmes mentionnés par des locataires précédents (chats et chantiers) sont à présent résolus.

"cette location offre une très belle vue sur le lac de Côme.l'équipement est complet.Deux petits bémols la chambre du bas est aveugle et très humide ,et les possibilités de rangement sont réduites : les armoires sont rares ou fermées à clé. A conseiller à un couple plutôt qu'à une famille.Les relations avec le loueur furent par écrit et en anglais ( les instructions étant particulièrement exhaustives)"
