The aparment is part of an old lake house (a rustico now split into 3 flats) refurbished a few years ago.

A terrific 180° Lake Como view can be enjoyed from any room as well as from the balcony or the garden.

2 floors flat including livable attic.

The space

The apartment is on the top 2 floors of the old lake house, which is split into 3 flats now.

The apartment has its own entrance, separate from the other 2 flats which share the garden. The parking is free and in front of the entrance door.

A terrific 180° view on Lake Como can be enjoyed from any room of the apartment as well as from the balcony and the garden.

The apartment is on 2 floors, the second with mansard roof.

For bookings above 4 guests is possible to rent the 2 other flats which have direct access to the garden, for a maximum of 8 guests (4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms). Pictures, description and price of this listing are referred to the 4 guests flat.

Guest access

Guests can access the apartment straight from the private parking lot and get into the attic where the living room, kitchen and balcony are.

Going downstairs you can reach the 2 bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other one with 2 single beds (this could be set up with a king size as well)

The bathroom is endowed with both shower and bath tub.

The garden, located on the ground floor, is shared with other the 2 apartments.

Interaction with guests

The lake house is just 15 minutes by car from the place I live. Guests can reach out to me if need be.

The lake house is a holiday place and during holiday time as well as summer weekends my family could be in one of the 2 others apartments. Garden and parking will be shared in such a case.

Other things to note

Hiring a car is highly recommended.
The bus stop is 50 meters from the Lake House but based on past experiences with guests of mine I really advise to hire a car due to the travel logistic (luggages to carry, pubblic transports to change) and also the the latecomer attitude of italian public transport.

We chose Stefano's beautiful villa due to it's quiet and serene location yet proximity to Como (and airport), the fact that it had a four bed configuration and of course most importantly, that view! Stefano was a very attentive and communicative host helping us with good restaurant recommendations and lots of local hints and tips. The Villa is 15 minutes from Como town (10km) and only an hour from Milan Malpensa airport and also has its own parking spaces. We enjoyed an amazing antipasti & Prosecco supper on the beautiful terrace and it feels particularly special that you can lie in bed looking straight out over the lake. The villa is well equipped with everything you would need (no oven or toaster FYI) and there was even tea/coffee etc provided. The lakeside is a 10 minute walk down a steep mule path where you will find a restaurant, Lido, ferry port, café, boat hire (highly recommended and reasonable rates) and SUP/Canoe hire (also recommended). But that's it. We drove to Como for drinks, shops and more upmarket restaurants. It would be a great base for road cycling too. Thank you to Stefano and his Father for your kindness and communication. Would highly recommend and would certainly return. Como is just beautiful.

This place just screams perfection. By far the best Air BNB we have ever stayed in. As many have said the photographs of this place simply don't do it justice!! It felt like a retreat in a home with character. Unfortunately we had crap weather during our 5 day stay but we actually didn't mind because it was so lovely to spend time in the house, reading, drinking wine and sitting on the balcony. The location of the house is very good, although as mentioned in the details, it would be helpful to have a car. We found that we were in a perfect location to get to both bellagio and como. There's a bus stop very close by also. One thing we loved was renting a boat (about 10min walk) from the house and using this to explore the lake! As for Stefano, he was a great host. Very good communication skills and very informative. His father who checked us in was a very warm and welcoming man. We have already started to look at flights to come back and stay here next year! Highly highly recommended .. this place is faultless.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the pictures just don't do this property justice. As soon as you arrive and look out the windows or walk down to the garden, the panoramic views of Lake Como are just magnificent. We were checked in by Stefano's father who was extremely helpful and charming. Everything you need for a relaxing peaceful holiday is supplied, parking is easy and secure and the location is perfect, with a great restaurant, ferry stop, boat hire and access to the lake for swimming just a short walk down the hill. We enjoyed the use of the beautiful gardens to have a twilight dinner watching the boats zip across the lake and the lights of the lake side towns coming to life which was just the perfect setting. I guess the highest recommendation we can offer is that we will certainly be rebooking again for next year.

Wonderful homely place on the lake, and the views are even better than the pictures suggest. The ferry stop is a short walk away, but its a steep walk back up to the house on the way home, there is a bar at the bottom so you can make sure you are hydrated! Would happily stay here again.

I have stayed in a lot of AirBnBs and this one was definitely one of the best. As the other reviews have described, it was truly magnificent and the views were stunning. I would suggest going a supermarket in Como before heading to the house as there is much more choice. The house was extremely clean and the host was quick to respond and great to deal with. Would absolutely go back!

This place is unbelievable. The photos really don't do it justice. Perfect view of the lake and all the basic amenities you need to live comfortably. During our stay, there was a leak at the public water plant which meant we were out of water for an hour or so. When we contacted Stefano, he found out the issue straight away for us and made sure we were aware. Stefano is the perfect mix of attentive when needed, but allowing us to get on with our holiday. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, only 15 minutes away from Como where there are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars, as well as a number of other beautiful towns, all with perfect views of the lake. Thank you to Stefano and his family for making our stay a memorable one.
