Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt in Colonno. Der Ausblick aus der Wohnung auf den Comer See und die Berge war perfekt. Genau wie die Wohnung. Rundherum waren viele Ausflüge möglich. Vielen Dank auch an Julie und Barrie für den netten und unkomplizierten Empfang. Wir können die Wohnung sehr weiterempfehlen und werden mit Sicherheit wieder kommen!
The appartment is both great inside and with wonderful view. The nicest one after 40 years of holidays ! The village is not great: you need a car to visit nicer villages around.
nice apartment with a great view
We met the owner's son at a nearby Cafeteria. He showed us around and was ready to submit useful hints. The rooms are spacious and have a modern appeal. Although we did not make use of the kitchen it would be nice to prepare your meals there. A good place with very friendly hosts.
Christmas in Colonno
Stayed here for Christmas followed by a week in Menaggio. The home has wonderful views, is very spacious and immaculately presented. Julie met us on arrival and looked after us very well offering excellent tips on restaurants and places to visit.The home was only a short drive to the bars and restaurants in Argegno and Andrea in Cafe Colombo who also offers a taxi service was very handy throughout our stay so we did need to use a car of an evening. Would definitely return and have recommended this home to friends.
My wife had Always wanted to visit Como, so we were looking forward to this holiday,
So glad we happened on this apartment! The views from this place are truly spectacular. No amount of photography can perfectly capture the ambience. It is truly awesome!
There were 4 in our party, as my in-laws travelled with us.
The apartment is high up a steep hill, which gives it it's amazing views and the car can be parked right outside the door, which was ideal for us as some in the party hadn't the best mobility.
A car is essential for us.
The listing on the apartment was spot on, the photos provide a good idea as to what you get.
2 balconies, 2 terraces, so always somewhere to get sun or shade depending on preference. 2 nice contemporary bathrooms. Good kitchen.
A very light and airy place. We loved it.
We dined on the balcony and on the upper side terrace. Great memories.
It was lovely and clean. No quibbles there.
We'd arranged for a welcome pack to greet us which was a slight indulgence for us, but very helpful as we arrived late evening.
Cinzia, who met us to let us in was so friendly and helpful, she really put us in "Italian" mood immediately.
We loved the surrounding villages and towns. Argegno was cute/quaint. Lenno had nice promenade and square...piazza!
We drove down to Cernobbio, which we loved.
Going on the ferry is highly recommended as you see so many beautiful towns from their best angle. We went to Bellagio...twice!
What more can I say!!?...
We'd all recommend this property to our friends without hesitation.
Thank you to the owner for letting us stay there.
Our stay at the property was fantastic, we really enjoyed it.
