Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Disappointing pool for number of residents sharing
After booking and then informing the booking agent Italian Apartments of our flight arrival time of 10.30pm from our Ryanair flight from Manchester we were told that our arrival time was too late to be checked in due to a noise policy which we didn't notice while booking. Cancellation was Euro300 so we didn't, we stayed in a B&B on the night we arrived at additional cost. Other people who had delayed flight arrivals had a key left for them. The apartment needs an awning over the balcony like all of the other apartments in the blocks.The swimming pool is warm but small and is shared by 3 apartment blocks with 7-8 apartments in each. If 2 families/groups were at the pool at the same time there wasn't enough room either in the pool or beside it.There is only 1 sun umbrella on a different level a few steps up from the pool which was inadequate. The view is lovely, parking is secure. The apartment is large and well equipped but it would benefit from more than one sofa.
Thank you for your comments and feedback and taking the time to write which we appreciate Julie. We purchased an umbrella as requested. The summer was particularly hot even for Italy from the heatwave which reached most of Europe.
To reconfirm hours of check in for our guests we clearly state our check in hours at eh time of confirming your booking. For the benefit of potential guests reading these comments, check in is 2 to 6pm. We can wait till later by prior agreement only ahead of your stay to a reasonable time. You are free to cancel the reservation within 24 hours without any penalty. I am sorry you did not take notice or check arrival hours when you booked as you mentioned here. As you mention there are many than one apartment here in the residence so the condominium will not permit guests arriving closer to midnight out of respect to our neighbours. Thank you once more for taking the time to write Julie.
Beautiful apartment in a stunning location.
Wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Apartment Fabiana in Ossuccio its a wonderful place with fantastic views and so convenient for seeing all of Lake Como's delights. We drove around the lake took the ferries and car ferries across the lake, took the Venicular in Como to Brunate and the cable car to Pigra. Crossed the mountains to Lake Lugano. Had wonderful food at some great restaurants and loved Villa del Biabianello and its gardens located on the peninsula at Lenno. Recommend you take the water taxi back to Lenno to enjoy the views of the Villa from the lake.
Two supermarkets within a five minute drive from the property. the walk up to the Sacro Monte di Ossuccio was worth the effort to view the fourteen chapels that line the path to the Church..
All in all a fantastic holiday at an apartment that had a stunning view across the lake and mountains the colours of which changed throughout the day. Highly recommend the apartment which was immaculate, the pool area which had sun loungers and chairs for guest. Most of all how friendly the other residents, guests of the apartment and the residents of Ossuccio were.
Fanstastic stay on the lake
We really enjoyed our stay here. Our friends booked the home as a surprise for us and it could not have worked out better. The home has views to die for. The apartment itself is just as photographed (always a relief when travelling overseas) and was spotlessly clean on arrival with a lovely private balcony and a parking space (the home is located close to the parking with a private garage and the pool is located in front of the home) Ossuccio itself is very picturesque with a lovely village feel with some nice restaurants and lovely park for sunbathing as well as a bite to eat or drink at the lakeside bar. There is a large ferry stop and supermarket within 5 minutes drive of the home so we would definitely recommend hiring a car. We loved of our stay and would not hesitate to return again.
Lovely apartment with wonderful views of the lake
We had a lovely holiday in Ossuccio/Lenno. Really pleased with the apartment especially the view from the balcony.A car is recommended as there is quite a climb to the apartment.Very pleased with the service we received from Julie and Barrie Webb of Italian Apartments and if looking to return to the lakes wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Lenno is a lovely place. You can catch the boat to most places on the lake from there. There are some nice restaurants there but we particularly liked the restaurant that Barrie recommended to us called Crotto dei Platini in Brienno. We had a wonderful lunch there overlooking the lake. Overall a wonderful holiday.
Wonderful lake view, large appartement !
Descrption of the property was very accurate.
Impressive lake view from the balcony.
We rented a 2 bedroom appartment : large living space, good size balcony, clean and well-maintained.
Top call service from Julie, the property manager.
Definitely a property to recommend.
In terms of attractions and restaurants in the area, we recommend renting a boat from Hire a boat at Comacina, ice cream at the Gelataria in Lenno (lake front), visitng Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna.
Great base to explore the lake. New apartment, modern, clean and comfortable. Pool quiet during the day to use, only busier of an evening. Ossuccio is less touristy than other villages with a nice park for sunbathing and some nice restaurants within walking distance. Supermarket and ferry 5 minutes drive so we took the owners advice and hired a car as their is a private garage at the residence. Paid the deposit via bank transfer and received confirmation the next day. Italian apartments were easy to deal with and prompt in all correspondence so i would not hesitate to use their services should we return to Como. Overall, excellent value for money.
