A superior property , close to the Lake with wonderful views - perfect for two couples
A superior property with regards to the living area, balcony and small private outdoor grass area. Wonderful lake views and also close to the pool with a view of this as well. Kitchen has all you need but on the smallish size. The bedroom with the two single beds has double French doors making it nice and light. The king bed room has an en suite but just a single French door and therefore a bit darker with a more limited view. However, you spend much of your time on the balcony or in the living area with the great views. The balcony faces east. There are 62 steps from the lakefront road to the entrance of the property so quite a climb with heavy luggage but so worth it. A garage is available but as we were slightly off season public parks were always available at the bottom of the steps. The hosts were so helpful with arranging a taxi to attend a crucial event. The ferry does not stop here so to have a car is best as the C10 bus is a bit unreliable. We would stay here again without a second thought.
Two weeks exploring the Lake
Modern, clean and comfortable with enough room for a family of four.
We enjoyed our stay immensely here in Laglio. The home was just as advertised online with a stunning lake view and garden to take in that view! Thanks to Gemma who met us on arrival and gave us lots of useful local tips on where to eat and drink. Laglio is very relaxing as a location with just a handful or restaurants and bars, with a great local feel to the place. Just what the doctor ordered. We will be back!
The views are amazing, the property was clean and well equipped, the pool is lovely.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.The property is fine but there were just a few things that needed checking. There was nothing major and it certainly didn't spoil our stay and we would return. Laglio is a quiet,pretty village but it is worth noting that eating out at a reasonable cost without getting in the car is challenging. However, the Pizzeria just up on the top road looks quite ordinary but the food and hospitality are excellent. The nearest supermarket, Bennet, that we found, is just in Como and has a wonderful selection of food and drink. The little grocer in Laglio is small but has most things and there is a fruit and vegetable stall in the small car park at the bottom of the apartment steps on a Tuesday morning which is also good. We didn't find the steps to be a particular issue although were glad to reach the top with our suitcases! However, for some people they could be a problem.The swimming pool is lovely and we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves nearly all of the time. The difficulty, if you can call it that, is actually leaving the wonderful view. the pool, and the feeling of peace and making the effort to go out. The nearest lake boats are in Argegno about fifteen minutes drive away and it is certainly worth using them to visit Bellagio and other lakeside villages. The cable car in Argegno is really worth the effort. A week was hardly long enough and we would love to return.
