SUNNY, LAKE COMO APARTMENT OVERLOOKING MOUNTAINS AND LAKE BEYOND.

Domaso Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 bath, Mountain Views, 90sq m plus sunny patio. Sleeps 5.

Antica Regina is a small, attractive, relatively new residence, located in Domaso, near to Gravedona on the North West shore of Lake Como. The ground floor, south facing apartment with sunny patio, is well decorated, very comfortable and has superb views overlooking the mountains and lake beyond. It sleeps 4 comfortably, though up to 5 can be accommodated using a sofa bed in the lounge. There is plenty of parking and communal gardens surround the apartment. It is a perfect situation for every age bracket, young or old alike, families, couples, or singles. Domaso and its extensive beaches are only a short 10 minute walk away. Shopping, restaurants, tennis courts and swimming pools are all close by. The area is renowned for its outdoor activities including hiking, walking, cycling, swimming, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, parachuting, golfing. Skiing is approx' 50 mins away. The ferry goes from Domaso taking visitors to the many wonderful places on the lake. Milan airports are easily accessible and cheap flights are available.

Golf Information: Menaggio (15km), 18 holes, from which there is a panoramic view on to the lake. This is the oldest golf course in Italy, founded in 1907. Lanzo (30kms) 9 holes in Val d'Intelvi up in the hills at 600m. Lugano (40km), or Como (46km).

Skiing Information: Our apartment is ideally situated (Northern end of Lake Como, close to Switzerland) for those who wish to ski. Skiing is available at resorts including Madesimo, Chiesa in Valmalenco, Aprica, San Moritz (Switzerland) and Livigno. The closest is Madesimo (50 kms) . Madesimo is a small resort in the Spluga Valley on the Swiss border. It is a very good family style resort with a full range of skiing from beginners through intermediates to the famous black 'off piste' Canaloni Run. It enjoys a reputation for being reasonably priced. Situated at a height 1500m, with skiing up to 2900m, it has a good reliable snow record. The resort can also be accessed from Campodolcino lower down the mountain, where there is a very good ski train that takes you up to the slopes.

Alternatively San Moritz in Switzerland is about 1 hour and a half away, and this famous resort is well worth a visit.

Walking/Hiking: The walking/hiking around Lake Como is fantastic and Domaso provide an excellent base for access to the mountains and parks on both sides of the Lake as well as the wonderful area immediately adjacent to Domaso and Gravedonna where there are fabulous walks from the back of the apartment up into the surrounding mountains. To be recommended nearby is the famous hike up to Rifugio Menaggio (1400m) where lunch and a spectacular view of the lake looking down on Bellagio is to be had. There are plenty of rifugios in the Natural Parks around the lake. Maps are available in the apartment though for more detailed advice of trails you should contact the Domaso tourist office.

Wonderful time in Domaso / Schöne Zeit in Domaso

  • 5 of 5
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in dieser wunder schönen Ferienwohnung. Die Wohnung ist sehr groß (wir waren zu viert) und hat eine sehr schöne Küche mit allem was man braucht. Für die Erwachsenen gibt es ein Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett und großen Schrank. Für die Kinder gibt es ein kleines Zimmer mit Stockbett. Im Wohnzimmer gibt es sogar eine offene Feuerstelle, für man im Sommer aber weniger braucht. Die Wohnung ist ein Teil einer umzäunten Wohnanlage mit Tiefgarage. Wir hatten einen sehr großen Garten zum Badminton spielen und relaxen. Von der Wohnung aus sind es ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß bis zum Bäcker oder Supermarkt und ca.20 Minuten bis zum Strand des Comer Sees.
Wie haben uns fest vorgenommen wider zu kommen.

We had a very nice time in this beautiful apartment. In the apartment is very big (we have been there with four people) and there is a very nice kitchen, equipped with all you need. For the adults there is a sleeping room with a double bed and a big cupboard. For the children there is a slam extra room with a bunk bed. In the living room, there is also an open fireplace, but which it is not needed in summer time. The apartment is a part of as fenced housing complex that contains a basement garage. We had a big garden to play badminton and to relax.
From the apartment, it is about 15 minutes by feet to next bakery or supermarket and about 20 minutes to the beach of lago di como.

Beautiful and relaxing- met all our needs!

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful property in a stunning location. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday whether you're looking for relaxation, water sports or dramatic mountains to hike. The well maintained and homely apartment catered to all our needs and we even met the friendly neighbours who were more than happy to welcome us to the area. The lake shore is a short and scenic walk away and didn't get too crowded while the lake is cold but extremely refreshing to swim in. If you're looking for a traditional Italian town that still caters for tourists, this is the location and apartment for you. Many, many thanks to the owners!

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this lovely paradise with some friends and it was one of the best holidays I have ever been on. It is honestly one of the most relaxing places I have ever been. We walked to the beach everyday and the food is INCREDIBLE! There was a local store which provided everything we needed because we were not rich enough to eat out every night! The wine is very cheap and tastes great! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Paradise is a great way of describing Lake Como with its stunning scenery and amazing mix of facilities from the beach, to its great lakeside cafes, to hiking in the mountains, sailing, windsurfing on the lake etc. You can be as active as you wish or as quiet and peaceful as you like. Thanks for this review. Much appreciated.

Antica Regina Apartment, Domaso, Lake Como

  • 5 of 5
My Wife and I have travelled to Italy for many years. This year (2012) will be our third year at this very good apartment. It's locality is just great being away from the masses and close to a fine restaurant and within walking distance of other good restuarants and pizzerias.

We walk into town most days for fresh supplies and enjoy both eating out and in on the south facing sun protected patio.

It is a great base to visit the Lake Como, Milan and Lake Lugano surrounding areas.

There are some good walks that you can take into the hills above.

Great place for doing and relaxing.

The apartment is clean, well appointed with central heating, plenty of hot water, no hassle car parking.

There is a good supply of non-fiction, guide books and novels in the house, which we have added to, but sadly no more, The Kindle has arrived !.

Happiness in Domaso and on Lake Como June 2009

  • 5 of 5
I'm a retired Brigadier who has travelled the world extensively for 60 years, often on holidays, but never to the area of Lake Como. I went to the flat with 3 ladies. Don't worry, only one was my wife; I am not of a religion that allows more and anyway at my age more than one would be too much of a good thing! We had a mass of useful information from the helpful and delightful owners, so were well prepared before we flew to Milan where we collected our hire car. Having followed the simple route to Domaso, we were delighted with what we found which had been very accurately described: a well furnished and fully equipped ground floor flat, immaculately clean, with plenty of space. It felt private and secluded although there were friendly and helpful neighbours nearby. We enjoyed meals on the terrace overlooking the lawn to the lake in the distance; lovely lazy breakfasts and mildly (perhaps the only slightly inaccurate word in this review) alcoholic suppers, in the warm sunshine. Self-catering was easy as a supermarket and bakery are only a short walk away, albeit down a hill. But there's a delightful terraced restaurant hidden away only 200 metres up the road, and many more in Domaso and the surrounding villages and towns, so we could take our pick. What a delight! We toured, occasionally by bus, sometimes by car, but more often by ferries from the town. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains the lake is a really glorious setting. The old lakeside villages and towns are full of character and interest; occasionally we drove high into the hills-- peaceful and lovely, and how great to see a goat halfway up a tree eating the leaves! The locals were friendly and very charming, in spite of our almost non-existent Italian! They always seemed eager to help when we described ourselves as the "qattro geriatricos". We had a really wonderful week. We were surprised that although it is obviously very popular with Italians as well as foreign visitors, none of the facilities seemed to be crowded. With a combined age of nearly 300 we didn't indulge in the many adventurous lake and mountain activities that were there for the young. However It is an ideal place for an inexpensive holiday whatever the ages of the group. Sadly we couldn't stay a second week to continue our sightseeing and enjoyment. After all my travels I'm a harsh judge. But this flat is definitely 10/10. For those who enjoy beauty, comfort, and adventure, don't miss it!

A beautiful location ...

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to visit Lake Como and stay in this apartment in early September 2009. Located in a secure development it is well appointed and extremely comfortable. The apartment is very clean and the welcome from the neighbour made us seem like a group of long lost friends! The local agent spoke very good English as was only a phone call away if needed. The property is only a short walk away from the village of Domaso with a number of good restaurants and bars. Domaso and Gravedona also have a couple of supermarkets if you fancy turning your hand to some Italian cookery. There is ample information on the area in the apartment and aided by really helpful neighbours. The lake shore is accessible following a short walk. However there is a sandier beach only a few km's drive South in Gravedona. The apartment is located at the North Eastern end of the lake. It is quieter than the more tourist centric locations of Bellagio and Menaggio. However these locations are all within a comfortable distance for a day trip and it is nice to escape back to this hillside retreat after jostling around these locations. We would recommend the restaurant directly behind the apartment which served produce grown on the premises, this includes the lively house red wine too. Our first evening was spent in a small lake side fish restaurant at the Northern end of the village. It was interesting to see our dinner being walked across the road from the kitchens ... only in Italy! The owners send a vast amount of information prior to arrival and can add further suggestions depending on what you want to do. We would recommend you use their intimate knowledge of the area. We spent quite a bit of time relaxing on the beach but we would be keen to go back and walk some of the surrounding mountains which act as a truly dramatic, and stunning, backdrop to this property. We would recommend this property, and have done so, to our friends and family. Overall a brilliant location and property.

Car: recommended

The apartment is in Domaso, directly on the n/w shore of Lago di Como. The centre of the village is 700 metres away with its lakeside boulevard. The whole area is stunningly beautiful - a glittering lake surrounded by mountains that cascade down into the water. The water is wonderful and clean. Gravedona is only 2 km away with its picturesque, old centre with narrow cobbled streets, lakeside cafes and boulevard, beach and pool. The ferry which leaves from both Domaso and Gravedona will enable you to explore areas on the lake such as: - Bellagio, known as the jewel in the crown on Lake Como, Varenna, Como, Menaggio; famous villas and gardens such as Villa Carlotta, Villa Metzi, Villa D'Este and Villa Monastero. Milan with its famous cathedral, shopping and two Series A football clubs is within easy striking distance - 1 hour's drive away. St Moritz, Bergamo, Piacenza, Parma and Verona are all within reach. A perfect base to explore Lake Como and the great sites of Northern Italy

Other Activities: parachuting, canoeing, (skiing is 45 mins drive away)
