We were two couples travelling together and staying at Santa Maria Rezzonico. The apartment was modern and clean and the beds were comfortable. The two bathrooms were modern and well equipped. It is so nice nice to stay in a lovely clean house. The balcony was great for dining al fresco in the evening or just enjoying a drink together.
The area around here is so beautiful, which we already knew as we had travelled here all together 47 years ago. The ferry from menaggio was very convenient and as long as we were there before ten we could get parked, past the terminal and up the hill, where the parking was free. We ate out at various places, not in Santa Maria though, no reason for this it was just easier to eat out when we were out and about. We had a lovely day in Como, we went on the hydrofoil at 8.10 on Saturday but it goes at 8 in the week. It was quite expensive but well worth it. We decided to come back by ferry but to be honest the price was not that different. Just a tip if you go on a saturday to como and don't get a return ticket, get your return ticket when you arrive in como, we left getting ours until later and had to queue for 30 mins.
We have had a wonderful stay here and would thoroughly recommend this apartment to others.
From the moment you arrive at this property you are not on holiday. This is probably the first holiday we have taken that didn't feel like one, as you become one of the locals
The property was spacious ,well maintained and fully equipped to enable us to have a really relaxing stay. There was a T.V. which was never switched on as we had our view of Lake Como. But what really made our holiday was the warmth and hospitality shown by Erica and her family. They made us feel so welcome without being intrusive. Our little one had full use of their pool and often splashed around with Erica's 2 children. We were given great advise about days out , local attractions and the best places to shop for fantastic Italian food. Not that you needed too much as "Nonna" would often visit us with home cooked Tiramisu , a beautiful apple cake and freshly picked plumb tomatoes from her kitchen garden.
Located at the North of Lake Como, our property was perfectly suited for the town of Gravedona which was a lovely 12 minute stroll away, with lovely local restaurants, cafes, ice cream and the Como ferry stop. We also spent an afternoon at the local beach on the lake.
By staying at a local property we got great advice on local activities , like mountain hiking, a day trip to Saint Moritz and how to survive a trip to Milan!! Best of all was the local restaurant called Ajo, Erica also called and got lake side reservations for us!!
We will definitely be returning to this property and would 100% recommend it if you want the perfect Italian escape.
