La Pace: the paradise of rest
La Pace and Villa Iolanda
'La Pace and Villa Iolanda are two separate houses located in Cremia, in the district of Marnino, in a protected area, ideal to relax. The stone houses are located on the lakeside preferred by George Clooney, on a green terrace land, 200m above the lake with a wonderful panoramic view. Extensive hiking trails are right outside the door, as the 'Via Monte Lariani' with an old trail that starts in Como and finish in Sorico, last village on north side, with a constant fantastic view along the lake with his bays and headlands. 'La Pace' and Villa Iolanda are about 3-5 minutes walking from public car park. The beach is about 10 minutes on foot and 2 minutes by car. Excursion: The rifugio La Canua '(1500 m) is just at 20 minutes by car and one-hour walk. There you have a wonderful view over the lake and the surrounding mountains.

About Mauro Almici
Born In Winterthur (CH), today I live with my family in Dongo (Como). Graduate in electrical engineering, I have worked for 30 years with a Finnish company, first as manager Automation, then as a sales manager for the French and German market. Now I dedicate myself to restructure everything smells of antique: old stone houses, vintage cars and motorcycles . Favorite sport: skiing, windsurfing, hiking,
Mauro Almici purchased this House in 1997
Why Mauro Almici chose Cremia
I've renovated these houses , because for me they always had a magical taste. Here, by my grandparents and uncles, as a child I always spent my holidays: green meadows, lake and relax. I took personally care to all the details to ensure an authentic atmosphere, however integrated with all the amenities that have improved the quality of life.
What makes this House unique
The wonderful view of the lake, which can be enjoyed from the terraces has since always, extended lunch and dinner time: man does not live by bread alone. The cozy atmosphere of the benches around the fireplace, they never did regret the lack of television. Today, even if there is satellite TV, the atmosphere remains still as ... as before.

Loved the house - very spacious, charm of building & location plus Mauro’s hospitality were great
Great place & location coupled with Mauro’s hospitality offset the one deficency (ie. the second bathroom being in the basement). Important to note that the house’s location is a 10 minute hike from parking place if one is not mobile - otherwise this is more than offset by the house’s charm, location and view of Lake Como and the surrounding terrain. We would come again!!!
The pictures are spot on but don't do it justice. It is absolutely peaceful here. At night you can hear a pin drop and see every tiny light from across the lake. Upon arrival Mauro was very helpful and insightful. There is a walk though to the home. We also ventured up a few times (you can drive up too but the walk is nicer) to the little grocery store. Extremely nice people own this tiny gem. The local restaurants are lovely and the small beach is great.
Paradise off the beaten track!
So we spent a week at the stone house at the end of June.
Loved it. The views from the top can't be beat. The house was comfortable enough for three of us. We were actually jealous of our daughter as her room had a great balcony from which to view the lake. We actually sat there one morning to have coffee and look out at the lake.
Mauro was a super host. very receptive to phone and email messages and very quick in responding. We did ask him for recommendations of places to eat and he was laways spot on with them.
The house itself required about a seven minute walk to the parking lot (all flat) and after the first day we actually looked forward to the walk and saying hi to the goats and dogs that lived along the way. Also enjoyed the cafe at the top of the hill (also about an 8 minute walk uphill, but an easy one, it was a great place to get a morning cup of coffee and see a real friendly Italian village). Loved the owner of the place.
We learned very quickly that if you leave windows open, it helped cool the house. We really didn't spend much time in the house during the day but were always out and about exploring the area. Also, loved the beach at Cremia. It was nice and actually quiet as compared to some of the other towns. We always looked forward to coming back there.
The welcome bottle of wine was very appreciated and once again Mauro was a pleasure to meet as was his dog. We are looking forward to our next visit to Lake Como and look forward to staying at the house once again should it be available. Thank you Mauro!
Lovely Christmas vacation on Como lake,,
really beautiful and idyllic house made of stone with picturesque and breathtaking view to lake Como. It was really tranquilizing and refreshing to spent Christmas time there, away from the normal Christmas rush.
We are sure, that we will take another vacation in the house of La Pace, either to enjoy the tranquilitziy of the autumn or winter time or to feel the heat and warm of summer time in Cremia. We really recommend this place.
Ein schöner Weihnachtsurlaub am Comer See,
ein wunderschönes idyllisches Steinhaus, mit malerischem und atmenberaubendem Ausblick auf den Comer See. Weihnachtszeit war ruhig und erholsam im Haus La Pace verzubringen, weg von Weihnachtseile.
Urlaub im Haus La Pace ist unbedingt zu empfehlen, wir können uns gut vorstellen wiederzukommen, entweder die Ruhe von Hermbst- und Winterzeit zu geniessen oder die Sommerzeitliche hitze und wärme zu erleben.
Upea joululoma Como järven rannalla,
upea idyllinen kivitalo, näkymä Como-järvelle on henkeäsalpaava ja maalauksellinen. Joululomailu La Pacesssa oli rauhallista ja rentouttavaa, poissa normaalsita joulunhälinästä ja kiireestä.
Tulemme varmasti tänne vielä uudelleen ja suosittelemme La Pacea muillekin, joko nauttimaan syksyn ja talven rauhasta tai kokemaan kesän kuumuuden ja lämmön.
awe inspiring views
The house and views are just as pictured. The house is very comfortable, elegant and furnished with everything needed. The house is spacious and would be very comfortable for a family. The area is charming and especially enjoyable for those who enjoy outdoor activities. You couldn't ask for a nicer more cooperative host than Mauro. I highly recommend staying here.
Villa Iolanda, ein Traum!
Das zweite Ferienhaus "Villa Iolanda", ebenfalls von Mauro in Eigenleistung renoviert, aus dem Besitz seiner Familie und an La Pace angrenzend, ist einfach wunderbar und übertrifft alle unsere Erwartungen! Mauro hat mit viel Mühe und Liebe zum Detail alte Bestandteile und Gegenstände des Hauses von seiner Familie erhalten und schön renoviert, sodass wir als Urlauber& nur Besucher des Hauses nun auch in den Genuss davon kommen dürfen und neben dem wunderbaren Blick und der tollen Landschaft und Natur von seinem Fleiss profitieren. Vielen Dank dafür! Zusammen mit der wunderschönen Gegend und allem Comfort, den das Haus bietet, kann man einen wunderbar einzigartigen und gemütlichen Urlaub in Villa Iolanda verbringen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder. Mauro denkt an alles und ist sehr aufmerksam. Auch unseren 5 und 1-jährigen Söhnen hat es sehr gut gefallen. Der Fußmarsch vom Parkplatz zum Haus ist bereits Teil der Erholung und wunderschön und abwechslungsreich, auch spannend für die Kinder! (jedoch nicht wirklich für Kinderwagen geeignet). Für uns Erwachsene war das schönste, morgens auf dem Balkon zu frühstücken und abends mit einem Glas Wein die Hammer-Aussicht zu genießen. Tipp: nehmen Sie sich nicht so viel vor, denn man kann im Haus und Garten sowie der direkten Umgebung bereits so wunderbar abschalten und die Seele baumeln lassen, dass Sie nicht weit kommen werden! ;-) Für uns war das besser und erholsamer als jede Touristen-Attraktion, die Lago Como sonst noch zu bieten hat.
