CHARMING VILLA WITH STUNNING VIEWS OF LAKE COMO, NEAR FERRY

Moltrasio House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4 to 8: House. Garden. Huge terrace. Optional additional studio flat

Unique chalet style villa of immense old-world Italian character with an additional self-contained studio flat below the terrace. The villa can be rented on its own for up to 4 people, or with the studio, which can also sleep up to 4 people.

The self-catering property is set in the greenery and gravel paths of its own private garden in the heart of the quaint lakeside village of Moltrasio. Nestling into the mountainside, the villa has a substantial terrace on two sides for outdoor dining and sunbathing, with a magnificent panorama of the lake and surrounding mountains, and the steeply rising village.

The terrace of the main villa has a jasmine-covered pergola for shady lunches. There are easy chairs and recliners from which to enjoy the views to the sound of the crickets. It is set in a terraced garden planted with palm and olive trees, roses, lavender and jasmine.

The spacious villa sleeps 4 in two upstairs bedrooms with wooden balconies.

The romantic master bedroom with ornate double bed has shuttered windows to the lake on two sides. The second bedroom, also with a lake view, has antique twin beds that can serve as a double. There is one upstairs bathroom, refitted in January 2013, with a shower cubicle, and an additional toilet and sink in the utility room downstairs. The traditional tiled galley kitchen has a double sink and a gas hob and oven.

The spacious living room has French windows on two sides onto the terrace, and an open fireplace. There is a small TV with DVD player and a selection of English-language DVDs. There is a full wifi service to access the internet. The bedrooms have parquet flooring, while the living room and breakfast room were newly tiled in January 2013. The thick old walls keep the house cool in summer but there are also fans in the bedrooms.

The accommodation capacity can be increased by also renting the well-designed small studio flat below the terrace with its own entrance.

The studio has an outdoor dining table on a deck with a magnificent view of the lake and surrounding mountains.

The compact apartment has four shuttered windows overlooking the lake. Through the entrance is a modern kitchen with gas hob, fridge and a microwave, as well as a pine table and stools for indoor eating.

The central section of the studio, with parquet flooring, has a pull-out double bed and a pair of child-length bunk beds, with wardrobe and cupboard space.

At the far end is a modern, attractively tiled shower room with WC and bidet.

This additional accommodation is ideal for a couple or a young family.

Private parking for the property is available in a lock-up garage for 1 car within 100 metres of the front gate.

If you want a vacation with an authentic taste of old Italy in a ravishingly beautiful location then you will love this house.

From May to the end of September there is a sandy lakeside beach with diving boards, a pizzeria bar and sunbeds for hire two minutes’ walk down the hill, where you can swim in the lake.

Magical lake view from lovely terrace and garden.

  • 5 of 5
Great house with all we needed in a beautiful location - we all agreed we couldn't imagine staying anywhere with a more amazing view. Terrace was great with plenty of space to sit out and enjoy the sun and main bedroom has a particularly fine view from big windows. Very light and quiet.

Small apartment quite basic - a little dark and separate from main house. Great for overspill space but not so good for frail or very young people.

Do note that house is on a cobbled alley with a lot of steps (200 or so) down to reach lake on a cobbled street and up to garage. Absolutely fine for us but was rather daunting for my elderly mother. Worth noting too that there is off road parking but in an Italian-sized garage. Your reversing must be confident! You could manage easily, though, just catching ferries.

All arrangements went very smoothly and we had a great holiday. Would thoroughly recommend the house and this beautiful area. Plenty of maps and guides etc in the house. Small shop and a little bar just up the hill and a couple of hotel bars just down by the lake. Other places reachable by car or ferry. Como, Bellagio and the mountains all good to explore. Very easy journey from Milan airports.

Could Be Better

  • 2 of 5
The home has numerous positive attributes:
- it is conveniently located near a market, lido facilities and several real great restaurants
- the view is fabulous and the garage is an unexpected bonus especially considering the numerous rain showers of this summer
- the owner provides restaurant recommendations that are all excellent
- the landing for the lake ferry is a short 8 minute walk and this affords easy and a scenic ride to all the lake villages
- it is a short drive to Como and Menaggio is but a 30 minute drive

On the negative side:
- the home requires a thorough cleaning from top to bottom--too many cob webs and dust mites in all the corners; we had to wash all the silverware and dishes
- new, matching towels are a must with two per person including wash cloths--critical since there is no dryer and the towels require a day and a half to dry. The hodgepodge of towels is not worthy of this facility
- the pillows need to be replaced as they have odors
- there are no double beds as advertised; just two pairs of singles joined together and all are sagging. For a week stay two sets of sheets are a must as one cannot wash and dry them in one day.
- upstairs bathroom needs a wall cabinet as there is no place to keep toiletry items plus there is no toilet roll holder
- downstairs quarters are less than ideal; mold in the shower pan; peeling wall paint; makeshift cabinets; dirty floors and doors; toilet bowl needs replacement
- there is too many unnecessary items in the house and around the yard
- all the toiletries from past guests need to be discarded

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear of your negative experience in our house. We are taking steps to improve some of the issues you raise. We regret that you did not make contact during your stay so that matters such as the request for additional bed linen could have been addressed straight away. Our home is charming -- and we appreciate your positive remarks -- but it is not a luxury facility and this is reflected in the rental charged. Most of our guests are very happy with their stay, as all previous reviews show. We appreciate you taking the time to give your feedback and are sorry that the house did not meet your expectations -- Kathryn

Bellissimo!

  • 5 of 5
The one week we spent here was spectacular. The views from the balcony are absolutely stunning, the lake itself is beautiful and we swam everyday. The locals are always friendly, and there are some great suggestions for local places to eat. A quick trip on the boat up and down the lake is great for days trips out.

Highly recommended, and Kathryn is extremely efficient and helpful!

Moltrasio is a tranquil village on Lake Como a 20-minute ferry ride from Como town, and easily accessible by motorway from Milan and Malpensa airports. The lakeside bustles with activity around the local hotels while up the hill the centre of the village is very quiet and traditional. It clings to the forested mountainside and is cut through by a stream that becomes a torrent cascading in waterfalls after heavy rain.

The house is reached on foot, 50 metres from the road, or 150 metres from the ferry boat station, along an ancient cobbled path known locally as the Holy Stairs. A car is not essential for staying here, and you can get about easily on public transport, by ferry boat, bus and train. Everything you need for your holiday is on the doorstep as the house is only minutes’ walk from an excellent butcher/delicatessen, a baker, a grocer, a pharmacy, an ATM and restaurants.

On the lakeside 2 minutes’ walk away there is a pizzeria at the lido, as well as good traditional food at the Hotel Posta, and more upmarket dining at the Grand Hotel Imperiale. Walk up the hill 20 minutes to an excellent trattoria, Del Fagiano, where you can sample many kinds of game and mushrooms in a selection of pasta, salami, stews and risotti.

The Grand Hotel Imperiale also has a state-of-the-art spa and beauty treatment centre.

From the Moltrasio ferry station you can take boats to Como town or Cernobbio, with its weekly market, or up the lake, past gracious lake front villas and their gardens, to Bellagio and beyond.

The old walled city of Como, centre of the silk industry, has smart design and fashion shops as well as a fine cathedral built with Moltrasio stone. It also has art galleries, such as the Villa Olmo, a sea-plane club, a football stadium and a wide selection of bars and restaurants.

From the lake front you can take the funicular railway up the mountain to Brunate, the starting point for many hiking trails.

We can offer personal recommendations for swimming places, walks and restaurants off the beaten track.
