Superb Apartment in Wonderful Position

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly agree with the previous comments, as we couldn't have phrased it better - charming, helpful family with a wonderful property. Lovely area and just what we had hoped for, and more. The weather was good, and perfect for exploring the area. Locally, the narrow cobbled old streets under archways are so worth wandering through - mostly part of the Greenway, previously mentioned. There are two small supermarkets down the hill in the village, also a take away pizzeria. Totally recommend, although we want to keep it to ourselves and want to return as soon as possible.

Casa del Portico is a hidden GEM no to be missed!

  • 5 of 5

Alice and Giorgio are wonderful, attentive and caring hosts who have created a beautiful, pristine apartment in a wonderful location with gorgeous gardens and views of Lake Como. The central lake location(Mezzegra) made access to ferries, villas and villages from Lenno to Menaggio, Bellagio and Varenna easy and, to our delight, we were 20metres away from the excellent Greenway del Lago di Como. Despite mixed weather we had a marvellous week.This area is worthy of many visits especially if it includes staying with Alice and Giorgio. They are a couple with a dream that is almost complete. With inspired planning, impeccable taste, very high standards of materials and finishing and artistic flair they have createdf (from a derelict farmhouse) 2 apartments, and are about to complete 4 bed and breakfast rooms(gorgeous) with plans for a breakfast room and I am sure lots more!! DO NOT MISS THIS WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATION!

Good luck Alice and Giorgio-you deserve every success and we will be back. Jim and Pat Wyness

Marvellous Holidays on Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we had a warm welcome. The position of the house is overwhelmingly beautiful: the large garden with olive trees and the view to the lake.

The apartment is tastefully and comfortably furnished.

The hosts are charming and helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much!

Very classy accommodation

  • 5 of 5

After lots of homework we chose Casa del Portico for a week long stay at Lake Como. Turned out to be a great choice! From the moment we arrived we were really impressed with the location, the quality of the accommodation and the hospitality from Alice and Georgio. A short walk to the Lake, shops, bars, restaurants, with a beautiful setting in the garden and olive grove. We enjoyed the place so much we ended up spending more time at the Lake than we had planned. Mezzegra is just perfectly placed along the Lake to visit all of the villages easily by ferry, and walking distance to Tremezzo and Lenno. Very classy accommodation, quiet but close to everything. Strongly recommended! No hesitation in returning to Casa Del Portico

Einfach nur traumhaft!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten nach einer Unterkunft für unseren Urlaub am Comer See gesucht, die sich von gewöhnlichen Ferienwohnungen abhebt und die Bilder von "Casa del Portico" sahen fast ein wenig zu schön aus, um wahr zu sein. Beinahe wie aus einer Designzeitung stibitzt! Aber als wir ankamen wurden wir nicht nur herzlich von den sympatischen Eigentümern empfangen, die Bilder versprachen auch nicht zu viel! Ein perfekt ausgetattetes, kleines Domizil in einer typischen Dorfvilla, fernab der Straße am Hang oberhalb des Sees gelegen, vom eigenen Olivenhain umgeben, mit allem Komfort und viel Liebe zum Detail hergerichtet! Lichtdurchflutet durch die großen, verglasten Eingangstüren und zusätzliche Fenster zwischen den Räumen, total gemütlich durch den schönen Holzboden, teilweise sichtbare Natursteinmauern, Gewölbedecken und sehr hochwertig in der Ausstattung, auch in der kleinen Küche und im Badezimmer. Alles war sehr sauber und die Vermieter, die mit ihrer Familie den oberen Teil des Hauses bewohnen (und somit immer greifbar, aber nie störend waren, im Gegenteil) sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir fühlten uns sofort wohl und es fehlte uns an nichts. Fantastisch war auch der Blick vom gemeinschaftlich genutzten Garten und unserer kleinen Terrasse vor der Wohnung direkt auf den See, auf der wir frühstückten und die Abende -untermalt mit Grillenzirpen- haben ausklingen lassen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, kleine Bars, Restaurants und den See kann man zu Fuß in wenigen Minuten erreichen. Auch um in die nächst größeren Orte mit schönen Villen, Parkanlagen, mehreren Bademöglichkeiten und Bootsanlegestellen zu gelangen benötigt man nicht unbedingt ein Auto. Der "Greenway" führt direkt oberhalb des Hauses vorbei, auf dem man viele Sehenswürdigkeiten und den See zu Fuß erkunden kann! Boot oder Fähre bringen einen bequem zu verschiedenen sehenswerten Orten rund um den See. "Casa del Portico" ist ein besonderer und romantischer Ort für einen unvergesslichen Urlaub! Danke an Alice und Giorgio für ihre Gastfreundschaft! Wir würden sofort wieder hin fahren!!!
