About hamble house
The UK owners welcome you to their Italian home in the pretty village of Musso, just a short drive north of Menaggio. Having been owners in Italy for seven years they visit often, loving everything Italian, especially the beautiful sights and magical experience of Lake Como. There is always something new to discover e.g. taking a ride in the cable car from Argegno to Pigra to see a breathtaking panoramic view of Lake Como.

Why hamble house chose Musso
Fresh air, views of lake, mountains and set in lovely countryside above the peaceful village of Musso, away from the main road and set amongst the little stone houses of friendly local Italians. Hearing the church bell calling people to Mass. A short drive north to the top of the lake you can enjoy the benefits of a large commercial centre. The ski slopes are within easy reach and we have enjoyed skiing in Madesimo during March and April when its snowy and sunny! A short drive south to the 'very English' Menaggio allows you easy access to many ferries which visit all the towns and villages by water e.g. the Rapido which speeds to Como town.
