What makes this Apartment unique
Spell binding lake and mountain views. A perfect relaxing apartment for large groups of friends and families.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Great clean and spacious apartment. Exactly how it is listed. Altogether a great place to stay on Lake Como as a base to explore the beautiful towns. The only thing to note is, that the walk to the lake front is as listed, but the way back is very steep and would be difficult for older people and small children. This was an issue a little for us as we had an older person with us, but driving to the lake was simple and there was easy parking at the lake. We would definitely recommend to friends.
Great experience at Lake Como
Our vacation certainly met our expectations from the online information provided. This was a great apartment for our family. Ideal location and unbelievable views. We made several trips to the market about 5 minutes from the apartment as we prepared breakfast each morning and a couple of dinners as well. There is a very good hike uphill from the apartment which leads to a series of about 14 small chapels and a monastery. Well worth the effort-make sure to take a phone or camera as the views from the top are great. Barrie and Julie were very responsive and helpful during our visit. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the Lake Como region.
Property was very nice and Lenno is a very nice town.
I had asked how far the property was from the shops, bars and restaurants and I was advised that it was an eight minute walk. Unfortunately it was 20 mins but approximately 700 hundreds was down a very steep hill and unfortunately my wife could not climb same on return which meant we had to rely on my son to come and pick us up in the car. If I had known I would not have booked the property.
We were only given one towel and provided with one sheet for the bed for two weeks when we arrived and despite advertising a pool was available and that all towels were provided there were no towels for the pool. Changing the sheets and towels cost extra
The Wi Fi was slow and I expected a lot better.
The bedrooms are described as being Attic rooms and they were so much so that I had to crawl into bed as the far side was no more than 4 feet high.
Thank you John for your comments.
To correct some of the points you have raised.
We communicated the walk to the lake was approximately 10 minutes at the time of the lake. We also advised the walk was downhill and therefore the walk back up the hill would be longer. As you can see from the photos the home is located in an elevated position to make the most of the panoramic lake view.
Guest can also check the address of the home in order to see the location ahead of reserving the home or viewing the map location. Further more we write on the advertisement "The supermarket is a 5 minute drive as is the ferry, 007 Villa Balbianello. A mini market and boat hire are available 15 minutes walk down from the home."
To date we have not received any negative comments regarding the wifi. The only issue was on your departure after one of your guests had tried to reset the modem and we had to call an engineer to reconfigure the password which I am happy to report is now fixed.
Regarding the bedding, the cleaning team professionally clean the home ahead of each arrival and provide towels and linen for your every stay. We providing additional towels on arrival as your stay was for two weeks. The home is a self catering apartment and a washing machine is available at the home.
As your stay was for two weeks we provide on request additional cleaning and linen which is a paid for service which originally offered to you to which you declined and then requested later on during your stay which we provided at a reduced cost for you and the cleaners we happy to organise following your last minute request.
As you can clearly see from the photos of the bedrooms are clearly shown so you can see the rooms have an apex roof in three of the rooms so less height on the side. We are completely transparent to guests booking as we wish for the home to be booked for the right guests only.
Lovely home, clean, tidy, modern and fitted out really well to a high quality& lovely pool, location great for Como and the surrounding towns , lovely boat trips and restaurants all close by. Warmly welcomed and escorted to the property by charming agent Gemma - would recommend to anybody ,
The home was modern,spacious and clean!
Our Lake Como experience was fantastic! Bonus was this lovely home!!! The home is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood which we absolutely loved since we are two families with young children. However, it isn't far from Lenno public ferry station which was nice! Upon entering the home, first thing I noticed was the huge kitchen! The oven was new although it did not work during our stay,it wasn't a big problem. All appliances was updated and was large capacity which is a really nice feature for families like ours since we like to prepare our breakfast and dinners! The kitchen has everything you need. The views of the lake was beautiful and serene! The bedrooms were large and had ample built in closets for longer stays! The pool is perfect for helping us keep the kids entertained after spending the day exploring. I can't say it enough but everything about this property is perfect! When we come back, we'll definitely book this property again! Thanks Gemma for making our stay at Lake Como more enjoyable and worry-free due to your property!
Great apartment, great views and a great location
We stayed with our family in this large 3 bedroom apartment for 2 weeks. It is a very spacious apartment that easily sleeps 8 (our family of 6 and grandparents). There is a 4th bedroom/playroom that has a comfortable pull-out twin bed. There is also a desk with 2 chairs for teenagers/kids to use their laptops, computers, iPad. The apartment has 3 bathrooms (all with showers and 1 with a bath tub) which was really convenient for our family.
The apartment is very nicely furnished and seems to be brand new. The kitchen has all the branded appliances including microwave, toaster, dishwasher. On top of that, there is a Nespresso machine for the early morning coffee on the balcony. There is also a washing machine in the apartment itself. The living room has a comfortable sofa and stylish dining table. Their is a large curved screen TV and even a TV with PlayStation 4 in one of the bedrooms upstairs.
And then there are the views. The apartment is in a somewhat elevated position overlooking the lake and the surrounding mountains. Both from the balcony (with a dining table and lounge chairs) and the pool area, you can enjoy the views at any time of the day. Very relaxing to just sit on the balcony and watch the planes land on the water, the boats passing by and the the view on Isola Comacina. If you are fortunate enough to be here in June you can see the amazing fire works from the balcony on 27th and 28th June 2016. We were so fortunate to have experienced this event at this apartment last year.
The apartment is about 500 meters from the lake shore and also close to the UNESCO heritage site of the Sacri Monti church. A supermarket is nearby in Lenno (5 minutes drive), it took us around 8 mins to walk. On the lake shore in Ossuccio, there is a boat rental service and a taxi service to Isola Comacina. There is recreation park where you can swim in the lake as well.
It was really nice to be welcomed by the local host who not only showed us the apartment, but also provided a lot of information about the area. Moreover, there was a beautiful bottle of wine upon our arrival in the apartment and the owner provided some essentials like dishwashing tablets and a few Nespresso capsules!
Overall, we had an excellent stay in this beautiful apartment with fantastic views. We will come back next year and would definitely recommend it to our friends.
