About this listing

Enjoy the whole of the magnificent Lario/Lake Como area from this charming base on the oldest street in the Centro Storico. It's just 3-4 minutes walk from the Lake and the ferries, and 2 minutes from the Piazza Duomo where you can immerse yourself in history as you enjoy an aperitivo.
As Franz Liszt said, "When you write the story of two happy lovers, let the story be set on the banks of Lake Como"
I look forward to hearing from you.

The space

Elegant home minutes from the Lago on a very 'particular' street in the Centro Storico. I'm a writer so my huge library is yours. Original artwork, designer kitchen and bespoke furnishings make for a delicious retreat. Internet, TV, all region DVD but you'll want to open the windows and listen to the conversations happening in the street below. Cafes, restaurants, traditional barbershop, shoes and clothes shops line the street .... and you'll have a medieval mural greeting you when you open the shutters in the bedroom. So much atmosfera, and romance.

We didn't have an opportunity to meet Julie but she was a wonderful host. Communication was excellent, providing us with clear operational instructions and recommendations of things to do and places to visit. The description of the apartment is accurate. The location is perfect. You are in the centre of Como but hidden away in one the oldest streets, only a short walk to shops and all forms of transport. We visited for 8 days and will return. Thank you Julie for your attention to detail.

We just got back from spending 4 nights at Julie's place. What a great spacious apartment she has in such a convenient location in the town of Como. She is a short distance from both train station which made life much easier for us. Thanks Julie.

Thank you Dorelle. I hope we can meet somewhere in the world one day! As you know I was alittle nervous as you'd stayed in a 'for rental only' place before in Como and I know mine is my home and full of stories ..... but stories get stronger by people adding to them 'eh. Safe journeys.

Julie was a great host, even if we didn't have the opportunity to meet her because she stayed in Hawaii during our visit in Como. Her apartment is really cosy, nicely decorated with lots of love to details and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. And it's in the center of the old town of Como. So you have good restaurants just around the corner, good shops for local Italian foods, too and Julie will certainly give you good advices to make your stay interesting and enjoyable. Communication with Julie was always uncomplicated. We definitely recommend Julie's apartment for any couples or singles who want to see the beautiful area of Como.

The host canceled this reservation 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Response from Julie:
This is a cautionary tale. I declined Marcel's reservation as my place was unavailable on his dates, yet even though the system said the offer was declined within minutes it showed it was accepted. I have just spent some time trying to ascertain the problem within the system and hopefully someone from AirBnb will be able to clarify the glitch in the system. In the meantime I get penalised as a host which seems unfair.

Julie is an excellent host. Her apartment is fabulous, right in the center of Como, in a safe area. She gave us all informations about the apartment, had nice suggestions for restaurants and sights around in the area. We would definetly stay at her place again. Thank you Julie!
