The Experience

The four storeys are connected by a stone stairway – it’s a tall house. The open-plan living area is on the first floor and you can glimpse the lake while you eat at the wooden table. There’s ample room for all to sit comfortably – choose a book from the shelves or chat to those cooking in the little kitchen, where you’ll discover basics for cooking and a small welcome pack with prosecco. White walls give a light, uncluttered feel; furniture is a mix of antique and modern.

At the front entrance you can sit in a little patio area with a table, chairs and seating – lovely for a morning coffee or an aperitivo, while you listen to neighbours talking Italian or walking past. Next door is a small family-run food shop and a very short walk will take you to Albergo Ristorante Vapore specialising in the freshest fish and with homemade puddings.

Take a turn by the lake before retiring to comfortable bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms.

Perfect for couples, friends or families with older children. Once you arrive, you will feel at ease, relaxing in this beautiful home in a traditional lakeside fishing village. No need for the car to explore. The ferry terminal is 5-10 minuets walk and will take you anywhere on Lake Como to enjoy and discover. Communication and detailed information prior to arrival is fabulous.
