Typical stone house on the Lake Como with private courtyard and rooftop terrace with fantastic view on the lake. The house is directly in the pedestrian center of the small village Pognana Lario. Pets are welcome!

The space

The house is on two levels, downstairs the kitchen, livingroom with fireplace and the private and very green courtyard were you can use the barbecue and enjoy your meals outside. On the first floor you will find a big and corfortable bathroom with shower, a double room with a high bed (150cm) and a single room with an extra matrace. Also the sofa in the living room can become a confortable double bed if needed. On the rooftop theres the terrace with the fantastic lake view where you can enjoy sunbaths or a romantic aperitif during the sunset.

Guest access

The house, the courtyard and the terrace will be fully available for you during your stay.

Interaction with guests

I'm not living directly in Pognana, but I will show you the house at your arrival and I will be available by mail or phone whenever you need.

Other things to note

We don't have a private parking area as we are in the pedestrian center. There is a public parking about 100m distance from the house. Sometimes in the summer it can be difficult to find a parking there and you have to use one of the other parking areas in Pognana. In the worst case you have to walk around 10 minuntes, directly on the panoramic hiking way "strada regia" but you will be rewarded by the fantastic view on the lake. Anyway the best way is to move by the public boats to explore the lake. The pier is directly in Pognana.

A great little house in a typical Italian village which provides a relaxing, private holiday home in a beautiful location. The house is comfortable and well equipped, providing everything you need for a great holiday base. The views from the roof terrace are spectacular and will not be bettered. There is easy access to public transport should you want to explore further afield via a regular and reliable bus service. Melanie was so attentive, very responsive to any questions and checking in now and again to ensure we had everything we needed and prepared to go the "extra mile" when required. A thoroughly enjoyable relaxing holiday in a relaxing traditional location.

Beautiful house and well equipped, my friend and I had a fantastic holiday. The roof terrace was a wonderful place to relax and sunbathe, it was also the perfect spot to stalk George Clooneys villa on the other side of the lake from! Lake Como is stunning and felt very unspoilt and although there are a lot of stairs to the lake beach it's worth visiting for a refreshing swim.

We stayed at Melanie's place in August this year and had such a great holiday! She was so accommodating. She left us a gift basket with pasta and wine and also lots of leaflets on what to do in the area and information on how to get around. The place itself was beautiful. The roof terrace was such a lovely place to enjoy an incredible view of the lake. The village of Pognana Lario is such a welcoming place with great locals. They even had a gnocchi festival when we were there, which pretty much does what it says on the tin and was the best gnocchi we'd ever tasted! People looking for a place with a great hostess, in an unforgettable location should definitely give this place a try!

We had a magical stay in Pognana Lario at Melanie's house. Our flight was late, but she kindly ensured there was someone to greet us when we arrived. The house was lovely, with a beautiful courtyard in which we really enjoyed spending the evenings. The house had everything we needed as well as some lovely "extras" which Melanie had left for us. It was in a great location for spending days by the lake. Melanie made us feel very welcome and was easily contactable all the time. We would both definitely go back again.

This was the second time we stayed at Melanie's place. Usually we are always on the lookout for new places to explore, but we had such a great time 2last time that we decided to come back. It was the best decision we could have made. The cozy, clean, well equipped and comfortable house, the rooftop terrace with an astonishing lake view, the little courtyard: it was even better than how we remembered it from our previous stay two years ago. The place is a great hideout for hanging around and relax, but it also serves well as a starting point to explore Lake Como by car/bike. Its rather close to Bellagio and Como but day trips to Milan or Bergamo are also well doable. For road cyclists (like us), the location of the house is simply perfect: within 15km of the famous climbs of the Madonna del Ghisallo, Colma di Sormano or Monte Bisbino and the courtyard has plenty of room to store your bikes. Last but not least, Melanie is a great host who made us feel very welcome - and who knows, perhaps we'll come back once more!

We had a fantastic time at Melanie's house. The location, the view, the furnishing, everything was perfect and we can only recommend the house to everybody! We especially enjoyed the warm summer evenings on the roof terrace with an amazing view over the lake!

Melanie's home is one of the most charming houses in Pognana Lario. The house is clean, tidy and well appointed. It's a very comfortable home, cozy but not small. The outdoor spaces (lovely courtyard and rooftop deck) are alone reasons to rent this house! Many nights were enjoyed drinking wine on the rooftop, watching the sunset over Lake Como. From the moment that I started looking at the property until the time that I gave back the keys, Melanie was very helpful and friendly. She is a beautiful person both inside and out. All the residents in Pognana were some of the most friendly people I've ever met. Definitely book this property, it will definitely be one of the most memorable trips you take!
